Time Out says

Fish Cheeks is a leader among New York's Asian restaurants offering cuisine inspired by the regions of Thailand, so, naturally, we invited it to hold court at Time Out Market New York. We tasted its food, reviewed the restaurant and had no hesitation in recommending Fish Cheeks for a spot at the market. Here’s why:

Named after the Asian delicacy, this seafood-forward Thai is as family-style as it is family-run (it's also been awarded a Thai Select designation, meaning the Thai government has recognized the restaurant for its authenticity). Brothers Chat and Ohm Suansilphong (the latter is an alum of Bangkok’s acclaimed Nahm) act as co-chefs, bringing kitchen chops honed under their restaurateur parents in Thailand to the former Le Philosophe space in Noho. At the 58-seat comfort-food spot—designed with colorful scalloped tiles and a shingled outside awning that emulate fish scales—find dishes like coconut king crab in a hand-crushed red-curry paste, and baked shrimp with pork belly over a bed of cilantro-laced glass noodles. Beverage director Dev Johnson, of Employees Only, slings Thai-influenced cocktails behind the bar.

This spot quickly made it into my top 10 list! I loved the colorful decor and the funky lamps and the food was delicious. I went during restaurant week and had the lunch special - 2 courses for $26 - totally worth it. The zabb wings sprinkled with chili and lime were perfectly crisp and the short rib curry had tons of flavor packed into each bite. I will say that if you're not used to spicy foods, be prepared for a kick in every dish. My mouth was definitely on fire, but the food was so good that I didn't even mind. I'll definitely be back!


This place is awesome. You definitely need a reservation, cause it's always crowded. They have a regular menu + a sharing menu for 2 or 3. We did the "set 2" meal and everything was incredible. The short rib curry - my fav of the night - cooks for 10 hours. The meat was so tender and perfect. The crab fried rice is a close second for my favorite dish. The sauces it comes with are perfect and the crab is so fresh. Drinks are also really good.


Want affordable yet trendy thai food in the most serene restaurant imaginable? Check out Fish Cheeks. Full disclosure, model Chrissy Teigen brought me to this place when I read somewhere that she was a fan. Upon eating my meal, I was more than pleasantly surprised--Fish Cheeks provides authentic Thai cuisine that is next level delicious. The decor in the restaurant is super cute. Drinks are awesome as well. Be sure not to miss the coconut crab curry or calamari.
