My husband and I stumbled upon this little gem. The food was delectable. We had the curry dishes and Shrimp rice. It was so good until, we ate there 2 of the 5 nights while visiting NYC. The interior reminds me of an old NYC shotgun style restaurant. It was a cozy feel. I hope to visit Topaz again if God allows me to come back to NYC. What more can I say! If the price, food and service was good. The spices all blended so well.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to eat, and stumbled onto Topaz. Their Som Tam (Papaya salad) was excellent, we even ordered an extra portion to accompany our main dishes. Fried rice with Chicken & Massaman curry were both very good, and the waiters kept our glasses of water full. Maybe not too cosy and a bit noisy, the food made us forget all that !

This used to be a mainstay for dining before or after City Center or Carnegie Hall performances. Today's experience was so disappointing. The food came cold. The duck was lukewarm, the rice totally cold. The asparagus was uncooked, obviously cold as well as hard. The waiter seemed not to understand our complaint. Guess we'll have to find another mainstay.

My family and I went here for dinner last night and luckily we had thought ahead to make a reservation as the place was packed (and this early on a Thursday night). Anyway, it took great effort to place an order as the waiters are so busy flying past you from one table to another. The food itself, was tasty. We had the curry puffs (my favorite), spring rolls and papaya salad, all of which were made well. I decided to go with the drunken noodles which I thought were excellent, though a bit spicy. Others at the table had tried different curries and they agreed that everything was very flavorful. At the end of our meal, my husband asked to have his portion wrapped up to go and the waiter asked him in a rather nasty way if he was sure about that. While I liked the food, I certainly won't come back here if I have to deal with arrogant and obnoxious servers.

The food was really great, but I ended up paying a full $20 incl. tip when I expected 15-16 w/ tip. A little disappointing.

i discovered this gem because my office is nearby. i have been going here for over a year now and the food is always consistently delicious. i almost never have a problem getting a table right away. it's great to have found a place like this in touristy midtown. between myself and the friends that i bring here, i've tried a bunch of things on the menu and all of it is very tasty. the portions are huge and the prices are cheap. staff is attentive, nice, and gay-friendly.

Favorite Thai in NYC and one of my favorites for quick lunch or dinner in NYC of any cuisine. Very friendly, good service, good prices and now they know me they serve spicy food unlike most US Thai restaurants where evrything is toned down. I tend to go late or early so never have problem with table. I love it. Been going there for last 5 years and so consistent.
