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.

So it took me two days to make a reservation because every time I called the line was busy, when I finally got through I made a reservation. I went there yesterday and the manager was extremely rude, they told me they didn't have a reservation and that there was nothing they could do about it. They also told me that the wait was 45 minutes and that there were no tables but there were plenty of empty tables in the back . Also, I was with my friend and she is super pregnant and unable to do a lot of walking. I asked if there was anything they could do but the manager said no and we had to leave. Never got to try the food but will never go back just because the service is so disappointing.
