Best Thai Food on the Upper West Side

  Last modified on July 31st, 2018

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.

Thai Market

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!
