Disappointing Pongsri Location – I like Pongsri. I really do. I just don't like this particular location because the service hasn't been as friendly as I've been accustomed to in the other places plus the prices are slightly higher here. Delivery has been better but seriously this place needs some touching up. The food is not impressive, there is plenty more on 9th Avenue that can satiate the Thai lover's palette.

Don't Go – DON?T GO! I think I got violently ill from the soft-shell crab tempura. I?ve lived in NYC almost 15 years, and until last Friday, I?ve never gotten sick from restaurant food before. In fact, I eat out (or order in) 3-5 times a week. Even though my friend recommended Pongshri after trying it once, none of the food was memorable. The pad thai was OK, but the tofu with green beans and the steak dish that we ordered were tasteless. I also had to send back the white asparagus soup because it was gelatinous. It looked like clear jello with 2 asparagus pieces in it. Never again! I?m also debating on calling the Board of Health.

Shouldn't there be shrimp in the shrimp pad thai? – Delicious and authentic Thai food but the shrimp pad thai is a bit of a rip off. I ordered take-out and was disappointed to see only one puny shrimp. When I called just to tell them, the woman said "There should have been two! " Two tiny shrimp in a dinner portion of pad thai! They should name it pad thai with two baby shrimps!

best thai food – This place was recommended by NY friends so I went. I am from Hawaii where the Thai food is good, & Pongsri was EXCELLENT! The price was reasonable. The service could have been better, but the place was PACKED so I understand. I can't wait to go back! I already recommended it to others.

Great Thai food! – My husband and I found this restaurant in passing, but am so glad we decided to stop! The food was delicious and not overly spicy. I would definately recommend this restaurant to anyone!

It's good, but it won't make you sweat – Pongsri has a very large menu and uses quality ingredients. In addition to the usual things, they have a number of duck, fish and mussel and frogs legs items. I think their food is very good, although definitely catered to American tastes. Most of the curries are a bit sweet and I've never had anything here that I thought was particularly spicy, despite asking repeatedly. For these reasons, this is a good place to learn about Thai food, or to take friends who aren't used to it. As a theater-district value, it's right up there.

Didn't live up to the reviews – I love Thai food. I made reservations at Ponsri based on the reviews at this site. My experience was totally different. Despite reservations we waited 15 minutes to be seated while others who arrived after us were seated first without reservations. We ordered two dishes - beef and pork #50 and #51 and both were tasteless. The food was a big disappointment. We did not find the waiter overly helpful. I will not go back.

Editorial Review – Thai classics and lunch specials delivered or served in simple East Village, Theater District or original Chinatown locations.
