Got a groupon for this place. My friend lives in Queens, but we were in Midtown, so decided to use the Groupon that day. Easy to get to from anywhere in NYC. It's a small place in the West Village, just a couple of blocks from the W. 4th street subway station. Easy to get to, and well worth the trip, too.

We started with splitting a chicken dumplings and a shrimp fresh summer roll for appetizer. The chicken dumplings were great. Reminded me of a dim sum, and had lots of great flavor, too. I've said in my other Thai reviews that I love a good fresh roll, because it's made with rice paper and not fried. This one did not disappoint. The shrimp were very good size, and the rolls were delicious.

For our main course, we had the tamarind duck. You can get 1/4 duck, or if you're *really* hungry, the 1/2 duck. We each got the 1/4 duck. Plenty of food. Comes with veggies, which were cooked right and not too mushy, and your choice of white or brown rice. The duck was cooked *perfectly.* Nice and crispy, not too greasy, and not too dry, which can be done very easily with duck. These people got it just right.

Price before the groupon was $46 before tip. Very reasonable for 2 appetizers, 2 main courses, and 2 sodas. Well worth the visit whether you have a Groupon or not.

I adored this place. It is a subtle restaurant, no snobbery or chi-chi ness.The service is just so sweet. The food is out of this world. We ordered a plate of pad thai and drunken noodles. Both were packed with flavour, The restaurant is constantly busy (granted we had gone on a friday night..) people are in and out with take out. It is not expensive, and so worth the visit!

We visit NYC once a year and this little Thai restaurant is just around the corner from where we stay. I love the green curry, which is always excellent! The veggies are fresh and not over cooked. The food is FAST and delicious. Prices are reasonable. Love this restaurant.
