Editorial Review – Greenpoint Thai restaurant offers a hearty selection of vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes.
What happened? – I completely agree with antypants. What happened to the pad thai? Onions and red peppes are now part of the ingredients which is not the way they would serve it. Very nice staff but became very sloppy.
What's happened to Thai Cafe? – I have eaten here consistently for almost 3 years, that's why it's kind of sad to report that the overall quality of the food at Thai Cafe has taken a noticable dive. Green Curry is being ruined by an over abundance of bay leaves, the meat often overcooked. Pad Thai has been runny and way too 'tangy'. Granted, they are usually incredibly busy, but that's no excuse to serve mediocre food - take out especially.
My favorite restaurant in Brooklyn – I've eaten here every week since I moved to Bklyn 8 years ago and it's been delicious every time.The chefs and staff are welcoming and happy to make substitutions or tune the spice up or down to your requests. The renovations made a big difference, but there is always a wait, especially 8 PM on wknds. Recommendations: panang curries. The only drag is they never delivered, but I just heard that they're doing daytime delivery service. When the food is this good, people DO come to you. PS the petite waitress has the most brilliant smile I've ever seen, and she's always so happy to see you, even if it's your first time. Why aren't more restaurant staff that pleased to have guests?
this is the real deal – Thai Cafe is the best Thai food I have ever had, hands down. I cannot order pad thai at other restaurants anymore because nothing comes close to their clean, fresh, well balanced version.
I lived in Greenpoint and used to eat there several times a week, its that good, and its also that cheap! The thai iced tea is good too, as well as the grilled pork loin salad with lime and peanuts and don't forget the mussels, and....
Spicy Pad Thai – The most spicy, delicious, and "gotta have some more shrimp pad thai." The food is definitely the attraction, but the service has been consistently bad on every visit. I have gotten warmer and much friendlier welcome and outstanding service at the other Thai restaurants in the Greenpoint area.
best thai outside SanFran – Great, authentic fish dishes, delicious vegetarian choices and terrific artwork hanging on the walls. Inexpensive $5.95 Pad Thai! Can't say enough good things about this restaurant, you are missing out, if you haven't been there. I recommend the Salmon Penang w/ skewered Shrimp & Veggies or the Filet of Red Snapper w/ Shitake Mushrooms & Ginger.
Much better than PlanEat Thai – Thai cafe's green curry is tops. The service is good, the ambience superior to other thai restaurants in the hood. The food quality is much better than Plan Eat. Their consistency if superior to both Plan Eat and Amarin (another local Thai spot). They will gladly comply with your spicy-ness request. LAst checked--no brown rice available.
Best Thai Food IN NY – Thai Cafe is probably the best in NY. The dishes are simple yet elegant. The Specials board offers quite a range of variations on a theme. If spicy is what you want they are not afraid to bring the pain yet leaving the delicate flavors of more mild thai spices.
