I have been ordering from Watana for over four years for delivery, and dined in regularly as well. The service is exceptionally friendly both on the phone and in person. The food is delicious--spicy, savory, just the right blend. I recommend the Panang and the Pad Ki Mow. Their Tom Kah Gai soup has fixed me up more than once during cold and flu season, too. Highly recommended.

The Pad Thai was not Pad Thai. I've eaten Pad Thai for many years from various Thai restaurants, and I've never had one as bad as the one from this place. It was missing the most basic ingredients of Pad Thai and the sauce was off too.

Whenever we order from here I am always happily surprised. Their vegetarian menu is small, but the quality makes up for its lack of options. The Tofu in Spices is by far my favorite along with their rice paper rolls (it's still really hard to get great ones in Park Slope given we no longer have a Vietnamese restaurant, but these suffice for a Thai version). My husband gets the Broken Sea - and he really likes it. The best part is that we've only ever ordered delivery - so you can feel good about the seafood coming still hot and well prepared. Is it the best Thai I've ever had - no, but it's really really really good.

I used to have a favorite place in the city called Kin Kaow on Spring Street. Unfortunately hit buy the economic downturn - it is gone...but I have found a really good substitute. Som Tum is one of those dishes that I feel is a good indicator of the freshness of the food. At Wantana this dish is crunchy, fresh, spicy and peanutty. It has a very distinct dressing and at times can tilt toward the nam pla (fishy) side but here they have perfected it. Their beef salad was also very fresh and spice filled. We first ordered the traditional, Pad Thai, Chicken Cashew Nut and Chicken Massaman Curry,. Pad Thai was chewy and nutty. Chicken Cashew was filled with fresh veggies and the Massaman was comfort food to the fullest. I have gone back and since ordered the Fried rice, it was a delightful mix of spices. Gang-Keow-Wan (green curry) with chicken and beef - it was VERY spicy (just how I like it) and was filled with meat. The sticky rice was very good but I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have coconut rice. No outdoors Kid friendly - yes _www.theBKdiner.com

My husband and I love Watana. While it doesn't exactly remind me of my time living in Chiang Mai, it comes damn close!

I love Thai food and have eaten it at more places than I could count. The chicken fried rice at this place is inedible. First of all, it's waaaay too spicey for Thai fried rice. There is a ton of basil (I've never had this dish with any basil) and too much black pepper. The flavor is not at all recognizable as Thai fried rice. I thought this would have been one of the easier dishes to get right, I guess not.
