I took my parents here as they wanted to try Thai food. What a great choice. The pad thai we got was great, and you can't beat the prices. I look forward to going back.

Always great food, fast and friendly service, and a small bill! It's the best part of working in Midtown!

I just moved to the area....Have been trying all the Thai restaurants in Hell's Kitchen...I just think that Yum Yum BKK is the best one...great food, good service and a great price!

I am not Thai, but I have to think there are some Thais who like this food. When we visited, there was a crowd of about 20 Thai 20-somethings enjoying a birthday party and LOTS of food. The whole crispy snapper was a marvel to look at! We chose the price fix, which was an awesome value with soup, salad, appetizer, entree, dessert, and tea. Our chicken with basil sauce was richly flavored with lots of Thai basil. The chicken with peanut sauce was milder, but just as flavorful with lots of chopped peanuts. The steamed dumplings were beautiful and tasty and the spring rolls were stuffed full with fresh vegetables. Our dessert was ice cream--coconut and green tea. The coconut was full of fresh coconut meat chunks. The green tea was a little bitter for my taste, but good. The price fix and great service make this a good pre-theater choice. Service is gracious and quietly efficient. This is a typical below street type restaurant with about 20-30 tables. I highly recommend this restaurant. The value, location, and service are its biggest assets.

I'm Thai and I have to say that this is one of the worst Thai restaurants, especially in the Theatre district area -- try Pongsri, Pam Real Thai or Won Dee Siam. Pongsri best atmosphere (and most expensive). Won Dee most flavorful but smallest portions and Pam is all around best but long waits after 7PM. The food here is not authentic and many of the sauces were sickly sweet. Many of their dishes are missing the authentic herbs or other ingredients that would make this food real Thai -- so it just tastes really bad to me. It's Thai for Americans. I think it's also overpriced compared to the other three restaurants that are in the same area and taste way better. I can't believe the # of positive reviews!

I have never gone to the actual restaurant. But I have ordered take out many times and have been extremely happy with my dinner when it came, EVERY TIME. I recommend it if you are feeling fickle tonight!

This was my first experience with Thai food and I took the suggestion on the Pad Thai which was absolutely delicious. I also tasted the Basil Noodles which were full of yummy flavor. Thought small and simple, we were lucky to have a window seat which made for a lovely atmosphere. A small skip from the theatre district and provided an excellect mean before the show and a extremely reasonable price.
