  • Excellent Isan Thai food in a neighborhood full of mediocre competition. Ask for serious spice and you'll get it.
  • Very good food just ignore the rest (decor and music)
  • Papaya salad is soo delicious + healthy! Food here (the salad too) is spicy so be careful. Of course try larb and thai iced tea too!
  • Crispy pork is the best, followed by crispy duck and then tilapia. Crab salad is a bit weird, would not recommend. But an amazing coconut ice cream and good shaved ice.
  • Crispy pork larb. Hell yeah.
  • Midtown gem. Great lunch specials including the exceptional pad Thai. Spice levels are on point.
  • Great Thai food in a random neighborhood but good if you're near Penn and have time to kill. Mild = spicy. Pad Kee Mao and papaya salad were delicious.
  • Get the Moo Krob Larb Salad - Crispy Pork, Shallots, Fresh Mint, Scallion, Cilantro, Chili Powder And Lime Dressing
  • The Kra Prao Moo Krob is great for lunch - Stir-fried basil sauce with crispy pork, chili and garlic over rice
  • Outstanding Thai food, order anything spicy.
  • Came here on 3/1/14. It no longer has a BYOB policy! :-(
  • The larbs are small but pretty tasty.
  • Best pork larb in the hood. And get the crazy Thai shaved ice dessert
  • See Chef Ratchanee Sumpatboon make a few of the restaurant's best dishes, including a fiery som tum salad, and the pork and eggplant stir fry called pad ped moo krob.
  • Nice to have non-coconut-based dishes at a Thai restaurant. However, most of the dishes are overly sweet. The larb was the only dish I really enjoyed.
  • Go for one of the 10 different variations of larb; a spicy minced meat salad with Thai herbs mixed through piles of shredded grilled catfish, diced mushrooms, chopped duck, pork liver, and more.
  • If you ask for spice you will get a volcano in your belly.
  • Howard always gets Pad Kee Mao
  • Anything with Crispy Pork.
  • Kao was the friendliest server. Great food with a relaxing ambiance...try the crispy pork and litchi ice tea.
