Thai Me Up - No Please Don't – So I checked out Thai Me Up while waiting for my next movie. I had not had a Tahiti meal in a couple if weeks. It was a late afternoon in a Monday so I did not have to contend with a crowd.
I said hello in Thai and bowed in a traditional Thai fashion. The cook had no idea as to what I was doing. I order what i considered as a safe meal, Pad Thai with Chicken and some sweet Thai Tea. The order came up to $11. So much for cheap.
The order was ready nice and hot in about 5 minutes. The guy called me up for the pick up and I was smiling ear to ear, Pad Thai with Chicken.
I get to my table which is rock solid, the stools are a bit hard to sit on, heck it reminded me of a resturant in Bangkok.
Sat with my meal and took a bite, blah. No taste what so ever in the noodles. I must say the chicken was done pretty well. Thank goodness there was some Chinese hot sauce nearby. It added the flavor I needed.
Now I know you may be saying what the heck ddo I know about Thai food. I'd say a little bit. I've been to Thailand a half dozen times, my ex-wife and some good friends are from there as well. I think my buds know good Thai food. This Resturant does not rate up there with a few really good ones I know.
But if you are in a jam, need your Thai food fix in and have $11 bucks to spare for a small portion, try them out. It may be for you.
Good and cheap – I enjoyed the food at this small take out resturant. Portions are big and filling. I had the sandwich with coconut ginger sauce. The food was very tasty and girl at the counter was very sweet and helpful. One negative the manager/owner was quite disrespectful and a bit of an ass. Otherwise a nice place.
Great inexpensive find! – This is a nice tiny place to check out if you?re in the mood for something a little different (Thai sandwiches). The chicken teriyaki sandwich was scrumptious. The shrimp dumplings in spicy peanut sauce were yummy too! Note there?s a little cilantro in the dumpling fillings, which I normally can?t stand, but the small amount didn?t surprisingly bother me, it was quite nice. The spicy tomato rice soup was good, not great. FYI they didn?t have regular milk & sugar for the coffee, just condensed milk, but that was a sweet change of pace. The employees were very nice. The worst part was probably the wobbly tables?some were less wobbly than others?
What a dump! stink taste like dog food holl in the wall – What a dump! Thai Sandwich spill all over bad stink taste like dog food, I got sick!
Probably you know what ,....avoid at any cost!!
Must try Thai style sandwich! – Simply said : its different, its really good and its worthed!! A must try for those who love sandwich and Thai flavor
Great for lunch – I work very close to Thai Me Up and am so happy that I stumbled on it during one of my lunchtime walks. I love Vietnamese sandwiches and Thai food, so the prospect of having a "Thai sandwich" was intriguing. I became a fan of this place after my first sandwich - the chicken with "black pearl" sauce. This sandwich is equally good with tofu substituting for the chicken. The "white ginger" sauce is also good. I haven't tried their "pine grand" sauce yet because it sounds way too sweet for my taste. I taste no difference between the white and whole wheat baguette, so I opt for the whole wheat one by healthier (hopefully) default. The sandwiches are also very sizeable and can probably be shared between two people. I see just as many people ordering the pad-Thai noodle versions of the sandwiches and the salads, so they must be good; I just like the sandwich concept better. My only criticism is that the sandwiches are a little messy because of the sauce and the liquid produced by the ingredients during cooking. I have made this place my default lunch option for times when I don't bring my lunch to work, or don't know where else to go.
New York, meet Thailand's equivalent of the banh mi, courtesy of this East Village sandwich shop. – In Short
Though the Vietnamese banh mi sandwich gets a ton of press, one rarely hears about the Thai equivalent. But this tiny sliver of a shop aims to change that. Served on a baguette, the oversized, foil-wrapped 'wiches come with chicken, beef, veggies or tofu and topped with one of three sauces: soy barbecue, ginger curry and a fruity pineapple option. The same ingredients are also served as noodle bowls, and other lunch-friendly choices include salads and, for dessert, rice pudding.
soo good, soo cheap – i went here for lunch the other day... this place is amazing. really cute.... you can play your own ipod on their speakers so everyone can hear your music...and the food is outrageous. totally fresh, totally healthy... and they just are really nice people working there..
everythings smells sooo good... but the thai hot tea tasted soo good, and so did the thai sandwich.
definetely something to try.
they have vegetarian food too ( my friend had it and loved it)
Delicious! Healthy! Fresh! Quick! – Yum, yum, yum. This place is a GEM! Lots of fresh veggies and the option of tofu, chicken,or beef. Delicious sandwiches, excellent noodle bowls, and wonderful salads. It's a place for a quick bite that never feels rushed. The owner is friendly and charming, the music is awesome.
I love this place!! My favorite is the white ginger noodle bowl with tofu.
Fantastic Deal – I've eaten at "Thai Me Up" and come back frequently; the portion is generous, price is very reasonable, and the fooof is FANTASTIC. A great deal in NYC!!
