Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

It's not just the bright orange entrance that attracts diners to this East Harlem eatery – although it sure helps. From its spot on Lexington, Chu-Ros Thai serves up authentic and quick Thai lunch or dinner. It's the result of a recent venture by a bunch of friends with a love of Thai food and one of their grandma's recipes up their sleeves.

Being mostly a takeout joint, there is only one short bar to dine at, and the warm wood pannelling and pot plants certainly make for a welcoming atmosphere. But Chu-Ros is so close to Central Park (a five-minute walk) that we'd advise heading there to tuck in. 

Open daily from 11.30am to 10pm, hungry visitors can stop in to get a speedy helping of dumplings, $10 veggie curries or dabble in their selection of traditional Thai street food. Give he khao man gai tod (fried chicken over ginger rice) a go, or sample the kana moo krob (crispy pork). Or keep it safe with a classic stirfry of seafood and flat rice noodles that goes by many names, but always gets a knowing nod when you mention drunken noodles.
