Pad Thai, anyone? I’ve always loved Thai restaurants in NYC, and we have a few special gems right here on the Upper West Side. Here are my top three spots for the best Thai food on the Upper West Side.
Our Favorite Thai Food on the Upper West Side
Land Thai Kitchen
450 Amsterdam Ave
Run by chef David Bank, a native of Thailand. Bank also has a location on Second Ave on the Upper East Side, Land Northeast Thai, as well as Pure Thai Cookhouse in Hell’s Kitchen. Land Thai Kitchen has stellar reviews and has been featured in Zagat as well as the Michelin Guide. Prices are extremely reasonable.
Notable dishes include their atlantic salmon, pan seared duck breast and steamed vegetable dumplings!
Senn Thai Comfort Food
452 Amsterdam Ave
Serving up “Thai street food” within a cute and rustic setting, Senn Thai offers an array of colorful dishes including a prix fixe lunch for $9! I’m a fan of their southern Thai fried chicken wing, as well as their spicy pork noodle soup.
960 Amsterdam Ave
First class cuisine inspired by the delicious food found in the marketplaces and street vendors of Thailand. Lots of delicious Thai curries!
435 Amsterdam and 975 Amsterdam
Spice has locations all over NYC. They offer their patrons classic Thai dishes with just a hint of modern influence. They also have some really cool cocktails like their passion fruit bellini!
