    Some of the favorites are the Northern Thai Noodle, and the Black Noodle dish. As an appetizer you should try the artichoke and sausage dish. The special Pan Seared Branzino is also divine! Read more

    Duck red curry was surprisingly lean and served with fantastic kind of roti bread. Ice creams are super cheap and delicious. Toasted almond is really good. Mango sorbet is sweet and rich

    The braised skate and calamari is great ... If you like it spicy get it ... I have eaten spicier hotter Thai so don't be put off by the 3 stars warning. Eat it with roti. Crispy !

    Awesome Thai food for a little more money. The spicy duck salad really is spicy! Each curry is so unique and flavorful. -1 for being out of 4 menu items at 8:45 on a quiet Monday.

    Their $15 lunch specials make it one of my favorite lunch spots. I can never say no to their goat curry, and pair it with their roti!

    Food you'll remember for a while. Very unique take on Thai food. Didn't think I'd like the squid ink soup. I was wrong. Laab pretty good. Brisket yellow curry was excellent. Roti+jams a fun appetizer

    Delicious Thai food with vegan options. Dont sleep on that tamarind Margarita. PS, the spicy flakes are hotter than you think.

    Dieterle has a knack for fusing Thai cuisine with his own New-American style, and the result is one of the most unique menus in New York right now. [Eater 38 Member]

    Get the $65 tasting menu--you won't be sorry. They'll even bring you some milk (or Thai iced tea) if you're a wimp about the spice level.

    Overall really great. The oyster and pork salad is a heavy appetizer but tasty. Goat massaman is fattier than expected but just falls apart, really good.

    The goat massaman curry is rich with shallots, toasted coconut, and dry chili, with braised goat neck that actually melts in the mouth.

    Raw kale, pears and candied pecans combine well in a salad. Vegetable stir fry with green curry rises above average.

    Friendly service, great food. Make sure to try the spicier salads, and grab some sticky rice to the curry. Desserts not a must though.

    Duck laab, squid ink sesame oil soup, or bay scallops w crisp shallots & toasted coconut. You can't go wrong w any fish or duck entree. Ask for it spicy & try to snag a seat by the open kitchen

    Curries form the core of the menu, and best of all is the sour-rabbit-leg, which comes wrapped in a banana leaf. Read more

    The lan larb salad is spicy but not a scorching. The curries are out of this world and goes well with the sticky rice and roti.

    Really can't go wrong here, but the squid ink soup is totally original. The goat is the massaman flavors you love but with insanely tender, melt in your mouth meat. Also, fun beer list!

    Top Chef #1 Harold Dieterle's newest spot. everything is spicy as can be, but if that's your bag you can't go wrong. Sit at the counter and watch Harold do his thing.

    Laab is slightly spicy, by South East Asian standards, so don't be intimidated. Follow it up with the goat massaman and you're set.

    Two rotis come in one order. They are also thicker and crispier than your regular roti; fun to eat with a great texture.
