5 out of 5 stars

If you are ready, both emotionally and physically, for one hell of a dining experience Lung Yai is your place. This hidden Little Havana gem is run by Chef Bas, who can be equal parts intimidating and insanely hospitable. With the chef's help, Lung Yai serves up some of the city’s best Thai food. Period. And it’s open on weekends until 2am. There are some rules to follow. You are to wait patiently for a table after signing your name on a list outside the door. Don’t loiter in the restaurant or waltz up to the bar to order a beer. But once you are seated, just go crazy. Everything is delicious.
