THEP is an Upper East Side Thai restaurant with a menu that has everything from khao soi and Thai sausage to pork buns and fried pastries filled with chicken and mozzarella cheese. We especially like the curries (get one with duck), and there’s also a great appetizer platter with spring rolls, chive pancakes, and various kinds of dumplings. The space has hanging plants and floor-to-ceiling windows, and it’s great for a night out on the Upper East Side - plus, there’s some nice sidewalk seating during the part of the year when eating outdoors is a thing.
