    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.” Daha fazlasını oku

    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.

    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)!

    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. Daha fazlasını oku

    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.

    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.

    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. Daha fazlasını oku

    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!

    Would go back again tomorrow...and wait another 1.5 hours for a table if it meant eating the coconut sundae again. One of the best desserts in NYC!

    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. Daha fazlasını oku

    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)!

    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

    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.

    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).
