The service is awful at this place! My friend and I decided to dine in on a mildly busy night. When we arrived, I did not want to eat there as the food looked bland. But we figured we were already there... We sat for 15 min without anyone greeting us, bringing our water, or taking our order. We tried to get one of the waitress's attention and she just walked off as we were not seated in her section. We ended up just walking out. Worst service I have experienced in the city. Completely unacceptable especially given that there are tons of restaurant just like it in the neighborhood. There is nothing special about this place.

I was surprised to see the negative reviews here. I have eaten at perhaps 12 different Thai restaurants in NYC over the years and this is about the best. My wife and I have eaten here twice since it opened and were very impressed with the food. Last night, in fact, she had squid salad and I had seafood pad thai that was superb. Despite the negative reviews, this place is at least a try if you like Thai food.

I love the establishment. Admittedly, Tiny Thai is the most hip, modern and very pretty restaurant on the upper Eastside. The food is a fine dinning. I loved the Green Curry and Dancing Calamari. I will come back to TINY again and again. YUMMY!

I ordered delivery from their lunch special menu. The delivery person didn't seen to understand simple directions of "I'll be right down" and he continued to buzz the address. The spring roll ordered thad the consistency of garden variety frozen and the plum sauce tasted straight from a bottle. the vegetable panang curry did host a nice choice of vegetables, however, it was completely inedible and a waste of money as I had specifically ordered mild (here you have the option of ordering on a scale of spice level from 1-10) and it was super, extemely hot so I will never order from this establishment again and I willl not recommend it to any of my friends considering there are so many other options in the neighborhood.

My wife and I ordered from this place a while back, and we thought that it was pretty good. Especially the amount of coconut shrimp you get for the price. Can't beat it!

I've been ordering takeout from Tiny Thai for a while now, the only reason being the acceptable prices and tastes of stir-fried items (noodles, basil) but otherwise I would not spend money on this place - you're better off eating other cuisines on the UES than wasting money on horrible food, even if it's Thai, and that says a lot coming from a native Thai like me. I would not pay full price for any item on the menu because it is highly overpriced - you're better off going midtown/downtown. I also absolutely would NOT recommend getting any type of soups from this place - it is absolutely bland and tastes horrible. I ordered the noodle soup with rice noodles for takeout - the noodles were overcooked and when you put it in the soup, it fragments into overcooked little pieces that are unappetizing - forget chopsticks I had to scoop noodle bits with my spoon. Their tom yum soup is similar, very bland with a ghost of vegetables floating around. Their fried rice are all bland - the missing ingredient is fish sauce but they haven't figured that out yet. The only food this place can cook decently is stir-fried noodles, basil stir fries and fish cakes, which taste pretty close to average Thai food I eat at home. Overall, this place makes me miss home MORE, not less.

Ah yes...the old familiar Upper East Side strategy: below-average food in small portions for overly-aggressive prices. BBQ Beef, in particular, was one of the worst purchases I can remember in recent memory. Will we ever see decent 'value' in this neighborhood?
