Tum & Yum has one of the better restaurant names on the Upper West Side, and it also has some of area’s best Thai food. This is a neighborhood spot that looks like a little cabin inside, with wood-paneled walls and a lot of lamps hanging from the ceiling, and it’s a great option for a relatively inexpensive weeknight meal. The food is a mix of standard dishes like pad see ew and drunken noodles and more interesting stuff like a soft-shell crab and duck salad.
