Foursquare Tips

  • Dinner is better than lunch and spicy is better than normal.
  • Bags Of Gold. Absolutely a must have!
  • Monkey to go is a great option of you don't have time for a nice sit down meal.
  • Happy hour $3 per draft pint. Fantastic calamari as appetizers. I love that it comes as whole calamari steaks not just rings. Very soft and tender. Recommend Tom Yum Sea Buss Soup. Yummiest!!!
  • Happy hour every day 5-7 pm. Great place!
  • super cheap happy hour. Avoid Thursdays and Fridays, bridge and tunnel takes over.
  • The Emerald Curry is a delight
  • Here's their website.
  • Try the Pad Kee Mao
  • Try the Dessert
  • Try not to get too frustrated by the poorly designed lunch menu.
  • Do NOT get the Tom Yum nachos
  • Chicken satay, fresh spring rolls :-)
  • Park on Freelon or Welsh. Get a Bangkok signature cocktail. Try the kur kling and bags of gold or the pumpkin curry - all delish!
  • Portion are way too big (from an european perspective).
  • Pretty average Thai place
  • Asian beef is huge
  • Panang beef with kafir limes is really good
  • Always amazing food and service
  • Not authentic, but good taste overall. Liked the Panng Curry with beef, too sweet maybe. Mango salad was ok, but not close to authentic. Call them for cheaper price than online order.
