This narrow cubby on a bustling strip of Amsterdam Avenue stands out among the area’s many uninspired dining options. Festive red and gold walls, dark wood tables and teak lanterns provide the atmosphere behind one of the Upper West Side’s most competent Thai menus. We liked the green papaya salad, which gets a few kicks from fresh hot peppers, cherry tomatoes and lime wedges. Our vegetarian friends enjoyed the meat-free dumplings, stuffed with a nutty mixture of tofu, spinach, corn, shiitake mushrooms and crushed peanuts.

Great thai place on the UWS. Found this place years ago in my then hood. Fast service, pleasing athmosphere, good value and clean tasting thai food. I recommend the sampler appetizer with the chicken curry puffs being a particular favorite. I've brought a number of friends here over the years and we'll received in each case. My go to thai place oh and whatever you are getting order a side if the peanut sause.
Cozy and tasty Thai spot! The curries are fantastic, just the right the balance of spice and sweet. I'm a huge fan of Som Tam (Papaya Salad) and Land's is fantastic. It's a small spot but the tables turn over quite quickly. The staff is super friendly here too.
