Another Hell's Kitchen gem, your taste buds will be first bumping your belly in crazed excitement. Try the red curry noodle dish if you want to experience happiness once in your life.
Dont Do It! – Only ate there once. Very bad experience. All the reviews say its great so we tried it and it was very bad. Chicken peanut skewers were un-edible! Awful interior. Many better options in NYC i think. Could have been bad night but all dishes were bad. Just my opinion.
Great food, love the BYOB! – I really enjoyed dinner at Wondee Siam. The food was great, portions were large, prices affordable. Being able to bring your own bottle(s) of wine is definitely a perk but don't plan on staying long and drinking and chatting - they move you in and out of here due to the tiny little eating area. Overall, much recommended for a good, cheap dinner!
Incredible! – Already dreaming about the squid with string beans and the crispy duck - ask for it spicy if you like it hot. This place is a true gem! Our server was extremely helpful with recommendations and they were all right on the mark.
Good food, reasonable price – I actually ate at Wondee Siam II (813 9th Ave ), one block north, as both times, Wondee Siam was crowded and a line was out the door. It's such a small space with only about 10 tables. The service at Wondee Siam II was quick and we were seated promptly. We ordered the fish cake as a starter, the dipping sauce is tangy, spicey and street. I had the panang curry and it was really good. It was a bit strange to have pineapples in there but it was stil good nonetheless. I just wish the restaurant had provided a larger portion of rice in order to sop up all the sauce. My friend had the pad thai, which is equally good. I topped it with a thai iced coffee. I recommend this place.
Best food, prices and customer service – I'm from LA visiting Manhatton, NY for business. Wondee is one of the great Thai food that I received reccomence to tried out and sure I did, traditional kept on the appearance and so tasty like you having Thai food in Thailand. I have not see the grumpy old man that most of you mentioned. The service was great. Friendly and OK timing for food to arrived. Owner so nice, not speck much english, but sure knows how to cook best Thai food. There are 3 branches on the same street #4 is on the way and on the same street as well. I sure reccomend these place to you all that love Thai food to try out yourself.
Editorial Review – This moderately-priced Thai restaurant packs a punch in its Panang and other curry dishes.
best mistake we made – me and my family went to nyc for a 4 day vacation, and on the last night we were going to get some chineese food, but we didnt want to go into china town as it was so far from the hotel. so while me and my little brother were swiming in the pool at the skyline hotel, our parents went down to the bar, and asked about a good chinese resturant. the bartender recomended mee's chinese resturaunt, but we found wondees and thought that our parents just mis enturpeted it. so we go in there and order. the old waiter i see alot of you complaining about was very nice to us, and most plesent. so maybe you just caught him on a bad day. i dont remember what exactly it was called that we orderd, but it was amazingly good! everything about it was a delight! i would return there in an instant!
BAD experience with same head waiter – I had a similar bad experience with the same older head waiter at Wondee Siam 2. We had ordered the special with chicken that night. The order came out as the special with shrimp. I am not able to eat shrimp as I am allergic to shell fish. So I tell this older waiter that I had ordered the chicken and the order was incorrect. He tried everything in his power to convince me that I had ordered the shrimp! I know that I would never order the shrimp because I cant eat it and havent eaten shrimp EVER!!! after about 3 minutes of trying to convince me that I ordered the shimp, I guess he finally realized he wasnt going to win this fight. But this experience left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I used to be a regular customer in the restaurant. Now I just go to Q Thai.
VERY RUDE HEAD WAITER – I am an American who can understand Thai fluently. While dining at Wondee Siam 2 with a friend last week, I overheard the older head waiter who takes the customer's orders making very unflattering comments about certain women who were dining. Granted, it was in Thai and other people wouldnt have understood, but I did. Very unprofessional and a disgrace to Thai people. I was so offended I will not eat here anymore.
Awful, just avoid – I tried this place a few times. Their service seem to get worst each time I went. The service was slow and their waiters seem to ignore you. The food was average at best. Their dishes were dirty the first two times I went.
