This is the most reasonably priced Thai food I have found in NYC and definitely the most legitimate. Since visiting Thailand, I have been scouring the city for the right flavor. You can pretty much tell when you walk into a place if it has the right feel, and this spot does it for me. Every other place I have tried has paled in comparison. The Pad Thai is just the right amount of fishy and the other traditional dishes have been to my liking as well - the price is great for the amount of food!

This sounds great! Do you recommend trying a specific dish?

Honestly, haven't met a dish there that I haven't liked yet but in particular I really do go usually for a pad thai fix, the wok chicken basil is delightful and I have enjoyed every appetizer I've tasted! - I say if the description looks appealing, give it a go!! I really do trust them.

Conveniently located near Central Park, this hidden gem offers traditional Thai cuisine for a low cost. Topaz has been a neighborhood establishment since 1992 and has since garnered a reputation for delicious meals. The high quality food and traditional offerings keep customers coming back for more. My favorite dish is the Rainbow Fried Rice accompanied by a large glass of Thai Iced Tea and a side order of dumplings.
I ate here every alternate day for a semester. Like their noodles a lot - pad thai and drunken man.

Are their dishes super spicy?
Not particularly. But you can always ask them to adjust the spice level to suit your tastes. Also, pad thai is almost never spicy.
I'm on a seefood diet. I see food, and I eat it.
Spice has so many options to choose from. While I am partial to the Pineapple Fried Rice, I have had many delicious dishes from this place. One thing I love is that Spice offers 100% Vegan options, something not a lot of other places have. The food is a little expensive, but always good.
perfected the art of eating
The neighbor of famed Clinton Street Bakery, this Thai place is one of my favorites. Not only can I get Thai Fried Rice with chicken for under $15, their lunch specials and happy hour are outstanding. Although the service is sometimes slow, the food is well worth the wait. Rich and flavorful, this is my go-to spot when I'm craving Thai. And, they're open relatively late during the weekdays, making late-night Thai a reality.

This is a perfect spot for an after-work date night. The food portions are quite generous, and the menu is lengthy. While everyone raves about the Pad Thai, I put my full support behind the Red Snapper Lad Prick. The fish was crispy on the outside and moist in the inside. On top of the food, the service was friends and we were served quickly. On a side note, I believe they offer $5 during Happy Hour.
Good food, great ambience for a Thai place and cheap too.

What do you recommend ordering here?
I've had good experience here with pad thai, pad kee mao, basil fried rice, peanut sauce curry, and basil stir fry - I think it's called queen of siam basil. I usually order my thai dishes with steamed tofu or mock duck.
Haven't had a bad experience here, from the umpteen number of times I've eaten here, or took food to go.

What's the best thing you've tried from this place? I normally get the duck salad, but I want to try something new!
The Triple Mushroom Springroll is where it's at. The food, overall, is high quality and served so that it easily makes for a great Instagram photo. The Lunch Set and Lunch Prefix are both amazing deals, especially if you work in the area. Overall, a great place to eat.
