The Six Best Thai Restaurants in New York City

Thai cuisine is known for their noodles, complex flavors and their use of curries and spices. Here at Ahoy New York, we are definitely fans of Thai cuisine and here is our list of the six best Thai restaurants in New York City.

Pongsri – 106 Bayard St
Pongsri is a Thai restaurant on the edge of Chinatown and it is a popular stop on our Chinatown and Little Italy food tour. The Chicken Pra Ramm is one of the dishes that stands out, blending peanuts, coconut and curry flavors into one mouthwatering dish.

Pok Pok Phat Thai – 137 Rivington St
Pok Pok Phat Thai recently replaced the neighborhood hotspot Pok Pok Wing on Rivington Street. With the new setup, you can customize your Pad Thai in a bunch of different ways. They are super tasty and they can pack quite the punch. Pok Pok Phat Thai is a great take out or delivery option for anyone in the area.

East Village Thai Restaurant – 32 E 7th St
East Village Thai is a no frills hole in the wall restaurant that simply serves delicious authentic Thai food. What more can you ask for? Some of our favorite items on the menu are their Thai Peek Gai (Thai fried chicken wings) and Tom Kar with Shrimp (coconut milk soup).

Pukk – 71 1st Ave
Pukk is a vegetation Thai restaurant with a sleek modern look. We just love their spicy vegetarian duck and their crispy spinach fritter with sweet lime chili.

Ruay Thai – 625 2nd Ave
Ruay Thai is tiny restaurant in Murray Hill. They make an amazing Pad Thai and Pad See Ew but the real star on the menu has to be their Shrimp and Blue Crab Meat Dumplings. You also can’t go wrong with a Thai Ice Tea to go along with your little Thai feast!

Pure Thai Cookhouse – 766 9th Ave
In Hell’s Kitchen, there is Pure Thai Cookhouse. Their chicken curry puffs, fried rice with lump crab meat along with an assortment of authentic Thai noodles are some of the dishes that keep us coming back for more.
