Foursquare Tips

  • Blending Thai and Vietnamese, OBAO bridges the gap between the streets of Southeast Asia and the streets of NYC into "Modern Thai." Try the Grilled Japanese Eggplant, Fresh Shrimp Rolls & Pad Thai.

  • I come here just to eat the khao soi noodles! !! Everything is tastyyy
  • Loved the oven roasted chicken. And the pho! Delicious.
  • Spare Ribs on Sugar Cane Skewers were a phenomenal WIN. Makes for a great midday snack. Thai iced tea was perfectly creamy and sweet.
  • Good happy hour. $5 well drinks. $3 beer.
  • Old Ember Room. New decor touches. Some favorite and new dishes. Food was delicious, especially the Calamari app. Friendly and service focused staff. Unique specialty cocktail drinks.
  • Absolutely loved this place. Fantastic bartenders, drinks and Calamari.
  • Pretty much everything here is good. Laksa really nice - Pad * really well done. Lunch sets are lovely and well priced. Dishes are about the right size and family style with some will work.
  • Was told that the wait is 15 minutes and ended up waiting close to an hour. Service was terrible- They forgot about the appetizer we'd ordered and a request we made about a specific entre
  • Extremely large space that's clean & trendy. A little tourist but pho lunch special is worth it
  • Delicious Thai food. Salt and pepper shrimp.
  • Get the Singapore Laksa -- really hits the spot on a cold day. Just the right combo of curry, coconut milk, shrimp, spicy pepper flakes and pork belly: winning combo.
  • The pad thai comes garnished with a delicious poached egg which makes you feel way less guilty about being an un-adventurous, closed-minded turd who only ever orders pad thai.
  • I always get the spare rib lollipops and grilled fish. So good.
  • My Deputy Mayor would say "Pork Bellllllllly." It's #delicious
  • Chef Preyanet Pongsuwan of OBAO NY uses shredded green papaya instead of noodles for this non-traditional pad Thai.
  • Great food and good decor!
  • Great place for drinks
  • Service was excellent, as was the massamun curry :)
