If you live on the Upper West Side, this should be one of your go-to neighborhood Thai spots. There’s a bar up front, and up a flight of stairs in the back you’ll find a dining room with gold light fixtures, comfortable leather chairs, and murals on the walls. The menu has various curries and noodle dishes as well as some less common options like taro samosas and razor clams in coconut milk. Bring a date, or stop by with some friends the next time you want to have a nice sit-down dinner that isn’t too formal.
