Cheers to Cheers – In the competitive world of Thai restaurants in New York City, it seems that if you don't have over the top decor, a night club-like atmosphere, and some sort of clever but confusing bathroom situation (Sea, Peep,) that you're not going to have much success as a Thai restaurant.
Cheers on Metropoitan Ave throws the average Thai connoisseur a curve ball. Inside, it looks like an old Mom and Pop style restaurant that was taken over by a warm and friendly family of Thais. I don't know if they are family or not, but you get the feeling that they are. The place very cute, very cozy, and very unassuming. You won't have wait an hour for a table, complain about bad service, or shout over Euro-techno music here. The place is quiet, but perhaps most important, the food is good. I've had the Curry and Basil dishes here quite often and they never disappoint. The staff is very attentive and courteous. If you're looking for a Thai food experience that's a little different, give this place a try.
good food without the tourist-like atmosphere – Great for a good plate of Pad-Thai without the side of tourist trap, which you can sometimes find at Sea or PlanetThai over on the Northside. Pretty quick delivery, and the food travels well. The chicken, beef & veggie entrees all round out well.
Thai that never disappoints – My friends and family trust on this place for good Thai food. They have a cute garden in the back and the prices are good.
Better than the Sea or Planet Thai - and they have a garden!! – This place is great. It is cozy, not a 'scene' (though lots of the Williamsburg folk frequent this place), the service is good, the food is on the very good side, and they usually have a Peter Cetera CD playing. I love the decor - small wooden booths on one side with lots and lots of Thai postcards displayed - nothing fancy at all. Granted, it could absolutely use a face lift for sure, but I hope they always keep those booths!! When the weather turns nice just go out back and sit in the garden. The lunch specials are wonderfu - you get soup or salad, a spring roll and an big entree for less than $6 which is a freakin' killer deal from noon to 3 or even 4pm. You have lots of choices from the menu - I have my favorites but try something new as often as I feel. Pad thai is not the only Thai dish, so try something different for crying out! I always leave full but not grossly overstuffed. Its great to have this place in the neighborhood.
Favorite Thai in America – I was about to give up on Thai, I really was. There's only so many lackluster chains and pad thais anyone can stand until they throw in the towell. Well, thankfully, I found Cheers. Cheers is REAL thai food, made by a lovely family in Williamsburg. Forget Sea, forget Spice, this is the real thing. The Bosom Friend dish with shrimp and calimari is pretty much irresistable. They can spice it up past cracker levels for you, too, and that's well appreciated. Whenever I leave NY, Cheers is one of the places I make sure to eat before my trip.
A Delivery Review: Just "Eh" – I've had a lot of Thai food over the years. This was distinctively average. It's true that delivered food usually isn't as good as its dined-in version, but in this case, it wasn't the travelling that made it average.
I had Pad Thai. The sauce on the noodles was too limey and the chicken in the Pad Thai was bland--it didn't even taste like chicken.
For me, it was a very unfortunate experience and I do not plan to go back.
Try the eggplant – It's incredibly yummy: smokey, fresh, perfectly cooked japanese eggplants. Tom Yum soup was excellent as well.
Bad food – My boyfriend and I have been to a lot of good Thai restaurant and we decided to venture to Cheers after reading good reviews on it and coz it is close to where we live. It is very pricey considering the place is in Williamsbury with not much decor. Food was not good at all. My non-thai friends cook better Thai food than this place. We got fried ice-cream for dessert and it was BAD...the worst we have experienced~!!
One good advice...if you want reasonably priced good food, go to SEA THAI BISTRO instead. Their decor is GREAT and prices are much cheaper than Cheers.
Pretty Good – the food was really good, we walked in without reservations (We called ahead, were told we didn't need it) and were asked to wait a few seconds while they cleared a table some people were finishing at, while their were other tables that could fit us ready and waiting. Appetizers and drinks came on time, but we waited 40/45 minutes for entrees. I had the panyang curry, which i loved. but the other meals which were not spicy, were kind of bland. The meat was great, but vegetables needed flavor and etc. Meal for four ran us about 50 dollars, only one dessert. They had three tables which were uglier and seemed to sit the non-trendies/not as well dressed people their. (people next to us were a family with two babies and a guy with a Vanilla Ice haircut)
Great Food and Even Better Ambiance! – My lovely boyfriend took me here for my birthday, and it's really a perfect spot for inexpensive, tasty food. We sat in the garden out back, and the calm atmosphere with the waterfall rock wall on the side completed the setting. The waitstaff was exceptionally nice and unobtrusive, and made the food spicy according to your liking. I reccommend this highly to anyone looking for a nice night out to dinner. Get the Thai iced tea-- it's yummy.
