I've been in the neighbohood a few years now and tried quite a bit, but having a hard time with good Thai (or similar) delivery -- Lucky Day is pretty good, I agree with you on Rice and Sea. I also do Kelley & Ping every once in a while for Thai and Korean stuff - it's pretty good though not too authentic.
Haven't tried East Hanah - sounds like it's exactly what I'm looking for (albeit not Thai).
Where do you get your Chinese take-out?
i always did funky broome which changed into jazzy wok. It's on Mott and Broome or Grand. Tho theyre remodeling (again). Recently started gettin Grand Sichuan on St Marks. People on here talk about all the authentic chinese dishes but I go for the greasy american general tsos, orange beef, etc and that stuff is fantastic. Plus they deliver in 10 mins. It's top notch american style chinese, this coming from a manhattan born Jew... we know these things. If I want something more "authentic" I go to C-Town.
I just responded to your solo bar post, looks like we're neighbors, welcome. Anyway here are the Thai options.
There's Lucky Day on Elizabeth b/w prince and spring which is a good neighborhood Thai spot.
There's also a place called Soho East Hanah which I order from very regularly. It's actually malaysian/indonesian but it's worth checking out. I like the mango chicken, the roti chanai, anything with the green curry and string beans (very spicy) and the pineapple chicken. There's also a singapore style noodle which is quite good.
Then there's Rice which is located on Mott b/w prince and spring and is a pan asian that serves Thai cuisine. I like it here ok but everyone else seems to LOVE it. I recommend the vegetarian meatballs that's my favorite.
There's alot of Thai places in the EV on 2nd ave but since I prefer chinese I am not too familiar with them. I can say that Sea on 2nd is god awful.
If you have any other questions I've been here for a while and have at least tried everything.
