best thai food in nyc – man this place is great. I found this restaurant on citysearch and used the offer for the $20 sangria pitchers. the food is fantastic and the staff is so helpful. its not a huge restaurant but its ambience in great. I had the chicken pad thai its honestly some of the best pad thai I've ever tasted. if you go to breeze get the sangria pitchers its soooooo worth it! they really are the best thai restaurant in nyc
Delicious! – I stopped here for lunch and was very impressed with the food. I ordered the Pad Thai noodles. It was fantastic!! My husband had a miso soup with tofu and a cashew chicken dish. They both had amazing flavor without all the salty taste I'm used to with these types of dishes! The decor is cool and simplistic (Ikea-style). I will definitely be back!!
Great Thai – I went here a few times with friends. The food is very good from what we tried of the large menu - which is actually a drawback; larger menus generally risk being inconsistent with flavour. The wild mushroom dumplings are amazing! We tried dishes that were highlighted and were not disappointed. The drinks are ok, but nothing special. The service doesn't stand out much either. Overall, it's a nice place to enjoy food.
Not so impressive Sandwiches – Ordered their lunch special Southeast Asian Sandwich with Flank Steak. I had high hope really. It turned out to be a bit disappointing.
The steak is a little dry and the sandwich really lacks flavor. I added on the green mayo that comes with it as well as some marinated pickle onion but that doesn't help the situation.
I guess maybe their other dishes will be better?
Amazing, tasty, cheap – Another great Thai place in Hells Kitchen. This place is trendy and delicious. I could go here everyday!
reading all these reviews makes me wonder what all the fuss is about. i went to breeze twice and i loved it both times. the wait staff was incredibly friendly and everything i ordered was delicious. i don't know if the people that wrote these bad reviews like thai food or if they are some kind of undercover restaurant connoisseurs, but their reviews are just plain wrong. when i went, i sampled the thai spring rolls and the crab and ripe mango summer rolls. both were delicious. i also had the seafood in banana cup, which is actually served in a huge leaf formed into a bowl. most of the seafood had been pureed with spices into a creamy broth, and it was incredibly rich and flavorful. i also had the beef massaman curry with thai roti. the beef itself was a little tough, but the curry sauce was well seasoned and the roti was soft and delicious. i would order this dish again, but next time i would substitute the beef for shrimp. all in all, i give breeze two thumbs up. i would, and do plan on going there again for affordable and yummy thai food.
Absolutely terrible – Breeze may possibly be my most hated NYC restaurant experience ever. I used to live a couple blocks away and watched many restaurants move in the neighborhood, go out of business, and be replaced with another in a few days, and I always marveled at the fact that Breeze somehow survived. The place tries to charm you inside with its trendy/hip appearance, but when you enter you can see the decor is absolutely gaudy and generic (you can easily see that every piece of lighting, decoration, even their silverware, is from IKEA). They blast loud "trendy" techno music even during lunch. Their menu is printed on a freaking CD JEWEL CASE and on a RECORD (as in a piece of vinyl). Way over the top, totally cheap and cheesy looking. We actually just stayed because my friend wanted to pick up a cute waiter he saw through the window.
Decor is one thing, but what about the food? We ordered 2 soups, and although it was "fancily" served to us with the veggies/meat in a bowl and they brought the broth over in a separate container that they pour in in front of you at your table, both were so horrendously salty they were inedible. All 4 people I was with could not eat them due to the salt levels. The entrees we ordered were tiny and mysteriously bland. We sent the food back.
All I can say is the service was good, especially since they took their terrible food back and reimbursed us without argument. Do everyone in Hell's Kitchen a favor and stop patronizing the place so it can be replaced by another more worthy business.
Avoid at all costs – My meal at Breeze was ok--my boyfriend's meal was absolutely terrible. He ordered the braised beef and the meat actually looked like something you would serve to a dog. The staff was nice about substituting chicken curry instead, but that turned out to be pretty lousy also. Then of course they put the hideous beef (which was more expensive) on the bill instead of the merely sub-par chicken curry which we had to ask them to change. I also didn't see where the "fusion" part came into the menu...seemed like pretty standard Thai to me. There are so many options on Ninth Avenue, I wouldn't ever bother with this joint again.
Editorial Review – Restaurant in New York City blends the cuisine of Thailand and France.
Great bartenders, fun atmosphere! – Stopping at Breeze for a drink after work was a wonderful idea...I loved the ambience and the bartenders were very sweet and helpful when I asked a million questions about their numerous martinis. The St. Louis was awesome, strong but tasty...I didn't have dinner here, but I'd highly recommended Breeze for an after-work or after-dinner cocktail.
