Had lunch here with 6 family members and a baby... service was freindly and fast. Place is large and sort of noisy but that was fine with a little kid. All our dishes were pretty good, the spicy seafood was the best probably

This place is hip, noisy, and crowded during the evenings, but totally worth it. My brother and I were seated within 20 minutes after arriving during a busy night, and the hostess and waitress were great. Our food arrived quickly and was hot and very tasty. I will be back. I can't wait to be back.

We enjoyed an early dinner but the restaurant was still quite busy. Most of the entrees are noodles in broth although there are a few other dishes as well. I enjoyed the green mango salad and the spicy coconut chicken noodle entree. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is pleasant.

I was visiting New York last weekend on a Saturday night with my boyfriend and chose this restaurant for something different. They do not take reservations, but we were taken right away- the bad part was that they have cafeteria seating, so we were seated at a four person table with two other girls. Which wouldn't be a problem if... More

Everything on the menu at this place looks so good, it's hard to decide what to get. And when the entrees are so filling, it's tough to pass on the appetizers. So I ordered both, knowing that I'd be stuffed. And now I must go back someday to sample more delicious dishes. As others have said, the restaurant can be... More

We went in the early evening so it wasn't particularly busy. The service was good and my lychee martini was nice. I had green papaya salad, steamed veggie dumplings and salmon sashimi which was all pretty good. The salad lacked the depth of flavours in real Thai food but it was still quite tasty. My friend had wanton soup which... More

We ended up going here a couple of times during our stay in New York City. I recommend the noodles in broth especially if you've got a cold. Or try one of the bento box selections to get a taste of the appetizers and an entree for a reasonable price. It's very popular with younger folks, and it gets loud.... More

The place is well run and confortabile. You can sit at tables or at the isle facing the kitchen to talk with the team of cooks while they are preparing your meal. The food is delicious: they wisely combine Chinese, Thay, Korean, Vietnamese flavors. They also have a choice of good Asian beers.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
