Decent Thai Food – My girlfriend had the restaurant com certificate ($25 for $2 I believe) with a minimum order of $35 so we came in without much expectation but figured it’d be a good deal. The $12 for 3 appetizer deal was a great sampler and I have to say that I really liked the house dumplings and Thai wings (both of which I’m usually very critical of). For entrees, we had the $9 Panang curry with chicken, which was just ordinary and not particularly bursting with flavors. The $12 Pad See Ew (broad flat noodles, aka drunken noodles) tasted better. When we got the bill, a 20% tip was already added (which we didn’t expect), so we each wound up paying about $9. For the amount of food we had, it was pretty good. But considering that it would have been about $20 without the certificate, I don’t think I would return, since I can get way better Thai at Pam’s in Midtown West!
Real yummy Thai food – Have come here before with and without restaurant . com coupons. The food is always delectable. Came her this past week to have some yummy mango salad, coconut chicken soup, and mussuman curry. It was simply delish and I will definitely be back again.
Thailand Cafe on Clinton is an exquisite gem. My date and I had the special seafood spring roll this week. They were delicious. The Thai server told me that these were new.
My partner had the bikini shrimp- which were perfectly cooked.
I had the Kee Mao- delicious. The most wonderful Kee Mao in New York City. Especially noteworthy was the mixture of Thai basil, broad rice noodles, chili...
My partner had the Tamarind Duck- a roasted half duck with tamarind sauce. It was delicious.
We both had beer. I had the 33 Vietnamese beer. My partner had the Beer Lao. The beer was excellent and served at the right temperature- cold.
For dessert we had the mango with sticky coconut rice. It was wonderful.
We had an excellent meal and we will return next week for another meal.
Best Thai Food on LES – Thailand Cafe On Clinton is a small intimate restaurant.
The service is excellent. The staff is very friendly.
For an appetizer my date and I ordered the spring rolls. They were wonderfully crisp and not oily. The accompanying dipping sauce was made in the restaurant and was not the generic sweet sauce that is found in many restaurants.
Last night I ordered the Crab Fried Rice. It was delicious. There were large pieces of white crabmeat in the fried rice. The fried rice was not oily- it was very delicate.
My date ordered the Coconut Chicken. A chicken breast and a chicken leg were served. The chicken was infused with the taste of coconut. It was served with hot sticky rice. The sticky rice was fantastic. There were a few vegetables with the chicken. Thankfully there was no flavorless iceberg lettuce- which all too many restaurants have.
I was a regular customer at Thai on Clinton. But the food in Thailand Cafe on Clinton is even better- the same chef has made several improvements.
This is a great small intimate restaurant.
Great Food on Clinton – This is the best Thai Restaurant on the Lower East Side.
The Kee Mao is fantastic. I had the Beef Kee Mao and it was delicious.
The Curry Noodles are excellent- and I prefer the curry noodles with chicken because the chicken blends in with the curry.
The appetizers are excellent. I enjoyed the Thai Wings and the Bikini Shrimp.
I used to go to Thai On Clinton- and I was disappointed when that restaurant closed. But Thailand Cafe on Clinton, not to be confused with the one on Second Avenue, is fun.
The service is excellent. The price is cheap- for Manhattan.
And the restaurant is spotless.
If you have any recommendations, please inform the staff. The staff is very repsonsive.
Fun, Hip, and Trendy – This place is so cool. They have these wild exotic drinks and great lounge-like atmosphere. The food is the best thai I've had in nyc. I highly reccomend it.

USED to love it, won't return – WARNING: Something has happened to this place. My girlfriend and I used to love it, but now the food is terrible. The service has fallen off, too. We went a month ago and the food was completely flavorless and it also took forever to arrive. But, since this was one of our favorite restaurants we decided to give it another shot tonight. Again, terrible. The food took forever to arrive and my dish came with chicken even though I'd ordered shrimp. Also, we specifically requested "spicy" and there wasn't a hint of spice in the food. It was so bland that if I had been blind-folded, I don't think I would have known it was Thai food. The calamari used to be our favorite appetizer but now the portion was 1/3 the size. And it was so crumbly that you couldn't pick it up with a fork. My girlfriend's duck was just pieces of grizzle. We heard the people at the table next to us complaining about the flavor, too.
I don't know what happened to this place. Maybe they got a new chef or are under new management. We are pretty bummed out because this was our favorite Thai restaurant in the East Village. Sad.
Decor Authentic, ambience sweet, Food authentic – Dumpling appetizer was mouth watering, no mixed drinks, the shrimp and scallop chili was fannnnnnntastic, the pad gra proao was spicy and lovely if you like hot and spicy. We will be back. My husband said the portions were great. The bathroom was clean. Everything was wonderful.
