This mom & pop corner Thai shop specializes in basic, homemade Thai fare. There are no pretensions here, just solid traditional dishes served in a friendly atmosphere at a very low price. In general, the menu is fairly standard for a small NYC Thai restaurant, with some notable exceptions. Among the appetizers one can find a surprising trio of vegetable dumplings (ultra-traditional, flat disk-like affairs filled with greens) or the hand-rolled crab roll (hoy jor). Although you will find the usual inventory of curries and chef’s specials, there are a few surprising entrees. The steamed fish with fried ginger is a much healthier choice than the deep-fried version, and the grilled squid is outstanding. On a cold day, the spicy chicken noodle soup is very satisfying. The Pad Thai is also well-prepared, never oily or viscous, and the chili sauces are all made on in the tiny kitchen by the owner and his wife. Desserts include the ubiquitous fried banana, but tucked into the menu is a homemade coconut pudding, which is fattening, but yummy. In summer, refreshing fruit drinks are available. The owners & the staff are friendly, polite and helpful. You can always ask to have f... more

The owners & the staff are friendly, polite and helpful. You can always ask to have fish steamed or pan-seared if you don’t want it fried. If asked, the owner will explain lovingly how each dish is prepared. He enjoys sharing his food and culture with his guests.

A small shrine to the Buddha is located near the cash register, where you can also purchase incense and other religious items. Revolving art exhibits decorate the walls.
