This small Hell’s Kitchen canteen by husband-and-wife team David and Vanida Bank of Land Thai Kitchen is a gem among the dozens of Thai–American restaurants lining Ninth Avenue. Foodies rave about this authentic hole-in-the-wall serving budget-friendly wok dishes and crowd pleasers like the Ratchaburi homemade egg noodles with crab and roasted pork.

Stumbled on to this little gem during a cold rainy day. It's a pretty small place that can maybe seat at maximum... 20 people?
What I really like about this joint is the level of authenticity, from decor, music to food. This is some next level Thai stuff.
The Thai milk tea was exceptional, my fried rice with lump crab meat was divine and with a side order of fried egg ( which was the MOST FLUFFIEST thing I've ever had).
My friend had noodles with roast pork - at glance, I thought it was gonna be dry but it actually wasn't.
Oh, ALWAYS ORDER THE ROASTED SPARE RIBS. You'll be glad you did.
Also, make sure you have an open palate when you go here.
Will be back to order everything.
