questionable thai – food was greasy!!!!! and flavorless. is this supposed to be thai? the dishes on our table all looked alike and were bland even though the menu descriptions would imply otherwise. only saving grace for this place was the fact that it had heat ( it was a cold day) and the warm wood decor.
Affordable, Tasty, Service is slow – The noodle portions are big, but the entree portions are small. The price is fairly reasonable, but the service is pretty slow. They forgot my friend's order and didn't comp him.
Rudest staff on the Upper East Side! – RUDE Horrible staff just as other reviewers said! Last Thursday My family went to eat at Jasmine and the restaurant was completely empty.We have eaten there before when we were in a rush and did not want to walk the 2 extra blocks to LAND restaurant which is 100 times better. We always tip well(20%) at all restaurants which we believe is a good tip.The very young male waiter completely ignored us! I had to get up and refill my own water glasses! When he approached me as I was replacing the water pitcher on the service bar this PUNK ACTUALLY SAID TO ME "I AM IGNORING YOU ON PURPOSE BECAUSE THEY(POINTING AT THE BACK OF THE RESTAURANT WHERE OTHER STAFF WAS STANDING) SAID YOU ARE A BAD TIPPER!" Oh YES HE DID SAY THAT EXACT SENTENCE! So unless you tip MORE THAN 20% you will be COMPLETELY IGNORED ON PURPOSE HERE! Needless to say I was appalled and took our food to go and will never return. 20)% every time and IGNORED ON PURPOSE IN AN EMPTY RESTAURANT BECAUSE THEY THINK 20% IS A BAD TIPPER! AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Go 2 blocks farther to LAND! better atmosphere, better food, better service. Never again! Yes, Jasmine is closer to 86 street but NOT WORTH BEING IGNORED AND INSULTED!
Nice place to go with friends...for the company not the food – I went with my friends to eat dinner here. The atmosphere was really nice. Not over the top and not sparce. It was dark and would be great for a date. My friend and I ordered the shrimp dumplings. Those were really good except for the sauce was freezing cold. Then my pad thai came and it had absolutly no flavor. I have had better pad thai at chain restaurants. Since I was with friends we wanted to split the bill, but they have a $15 credit card minimus which is really annoying, especially since most items on the menu are under $15.
Great Thai place – This is a great place -not only is the food delicious, but the atmosphere and service are equally good. The gai pahd bai ga-prow (chicken w/ bell peppers in a spicy basil sauce) is a favorite -they can adjust how spicy the dish is, and I have found the 'medium hot' to be just right for me (it's probably the equivalent of 2-3 green Thai chili peppers). They also have been prompt when I have ordered take-out -it takes around 10-15min to have it ready.
Having myself dabbled with Thai food cooking, I like their soups and especially appreciated that you can find galangalal pieces in the Tom Yam Goong, the spicy seafood shrimp with mushrooms.
Overall, I think this place is a keeper and worthwhile trying if you have not.
Found a insect in Food! – Do NOT eat here, we found an insect (you know which one I'm talking about) in our food! I have eaten at Jasmine at least 6 times in the last two years. This used to be one of my favorite Thai restaurants. Never again will I eat there. I contacted them about the insect in my food and suddenly the receptionist did not speak any English (funny how she spoke it before!).
Totally grossed out right now!
A favorite of ours – My fiancee and I absolutely love this restaurant. It was the restaurant we went to on our first date and we continue to go there at least once a month. The food is AMAZING and super cheap. It is quite hard to go there and just have one or two things.He usually wishes he can order the whole menu. The chicken satay w/ peanut sauce is to die for and so is the Bamee Siam. I highly recommend this place.
Highly Disappointed – Just moved recently into town and used City Search to find this place. It had great reviews so maybe I had high hopes. However, our experience was very opposite to the postings. The food was so-so but what made it awful was the service. The staff was unattentive and extremely rude. Needless to say, I will NEVER go there again.
Best in the neighborhood – Reliable food, nice atmosphere, great value. I've been here dozens of times and have almost never been disappointed. I wouldn't order the spring rolls, but everything else is very good, and the value can't be beat. Excellent for delivery or take out as well.
Great ambiance and great food! – I love this place! The food actually tastes like Thai food and not altered toward American tastes (i.e. bland). This place is romantic for couples or fun with friends. I highly recommend this place.
