    The banana leaf salad is the best Thai dish in the world you haven't eaten. Get your spicy pants on because this will light you up -- or get a beer slushy.

    Mieng Kum (Betel leaf wrap), Kai Yang Muay Thai (Rotisserie half chicken [more like 1/4 when we got it] & green mango salad), Khao Soi Kaa Gai (Golden curry) & Pet Palo (crispy duck leg)

    When it comes to the toasted coconut sundae at Uncle Boons, Ryan Sutton put it best: “Coconut milk gelato, candied nuts, and whipped cream. If you don’t like this, you are a flawed human being.” Mehr erfahren

    Get the beer slushie, a house speciality. Spy the rotating barrel behind the bar? It's filled with ice water and salt, the constant movement keeps the beers just below freezing.

    "On a menu full of earthy curiosities—like ... a smoked-catfish-and-pork spread that sounds horrible but tastes wonderful as a dip for market crudités—adventure is its own reward." Mehr erfahren

    Love this place. Get the pig ears, chicken curry salad appetizer, massaman curry, and don't forget dessert. Some peanut butter whipped cream thing that is delicious. Tasty cocktails too!

    One of our 2014 Food & Drink Award Winners, Uncle Boons marries flawless technique with Thailand flavors. Baby octopus and a frozen Singha beer slushie might be the best bar meal in the 5 boroughs. Mehr erfahren

    A very cozy space and likely an hour long wait, but great food. The highlights were the minced lamb salad starter and boneless beef ribs. Also recommend their spicy house beer; has a jalapeño kick.

    Michelin star restaurant with no pretentiousness, fun vibe, and high quality, inventive dishes. A modern take on Thai food. Get the tamarind margarita, mango salad, & the lobster (if they have it)!

    The best Thai restaurant i have been to in New York City by far. This has a fusion of traditional Thai and western with some really out-there dishes, like the roasted bone marrow.

    This place is fantastic. Get the beer slushie, sweetbreads, blowfish tails, golden chicken curry, and save room for coconut ice cream. The chicken and banana salad is super spicy. Real authentic, GO!

    At Uncle Boons, they serve tweaked versions of traditional dishes from all over Thailand. Eater critic Ryan Sutton loves the rotisserie chicken, frog legs, curry snails, crab rice, and short ribs. Mehr erfahren

    Uncle Boons' Milk Toast is better than a donut. The restaurant's Milk Bread is inspired by sweet toasts typically sold at coffee shops in Thailand. Mehr erfahren

    Thai Rotissererie encourages you to let loose! Share plates, eat with your hands, and enjoy your food Thai style. Definitely order a Thai style beer slushy at the bar while watching the Rotisserie.

    Sweetbread Mee Krob was exceptional! We enjoyed the bone marrow and pig jowl dinner as well. Each dish was so well balanced and spiced; definitely worth visiting multiple times

    Modern thai food, complex and bursting with flavor. Love the warm lamb laab and it packs some real Thai heat. Kao Soi my least fave (sorry nothing better than my dad's)! Must get the coconut sundae!

    Start with a cocktail (we love the Bia Supalot) and the Mieng Kum! Then share Yum Mamoung (Mango Salad), Mee Krob (Sweetbreads), Laab Neuh Gae (Chopped Lamb Salad), & Khao Soi Kaa Kai (Golden Curry)!

    The massaman beef is excellent but a little too spicy. Goes great with jasmine rice. The roti is excellent for dipping in most of the dishes. The coconut sundae was also very good. Friendly service!

    Thai with a unique spin, Amazing flavors. Give that palette a try, you might just be amazed. My fav chicken leg noodle, mango salad, liver with roti, sour sausage and the bread with condensed milk.

    Everything is delicious, don't miss their grilled prawns or baby octopus. Beer slushies are fun but sort of explode. Grab a spot for two on the bar, exceptional food and service, Michelin star FTW

    Spicy chicken salad, baby octopus, chicken liver, and the sole dessert: coconut ice cream with whipped cream & coconut flakes. Delectable. The hoppy beers on tap (Sorachi Ace & Sofie) are legit!

    The chefs are two alumni of Per Se. Chile freaks can find the heat they crave in a chicken-and-banana-blossom salad or an unusual warm laab of chopped lamb fried to a caramelized crunch in a wok."

    Cannot recommend the crab fried rice enough. Order 2 if you have a big party. Also don't skip the Khao Soi Kaa Gai (get it with the mushrooms if you are sharing because the chicken is on the bone).

    The mango salad with avocado is creamy and perfectly flavored. I'm a fan of the lush golden curry -- though careful it's a heavy dish, so best to share with appetizers and friends!

    Frogs legs special was great. Skip the crab dip. Whole roasted fish with naam prik dipping sauce was perfect. Sit at tables in the back, high tops a bit too high. Pricy but not surprising for the area

    There are few places I'd wait two hours for but I'd wait four for the rotisserie chicken, crab fried rice, fried pig ears and the bone marrow. Prepare for the ultimate but most amazing food coma.
