Best Thai in the UES?

  1. In my experience, UES is not great for Thai. Eat and Spice are the 2 I order in from. I usually travel away from UES to go out for Thai. Land gets some mixed reviews, but some people really like it.

      Yes, Thai is something I just don't eat on the UES.

    2. There is a place called "Jasmine" around 84th and 2nd that isn't bad.

      Walking home today, I noticed a new place on about 100th between 3rd and Lex, closer to 3rd, a stone's throw from the mini-restaurant row up there. It's called "Gogo" or something like that. Will try it soon.

      1. I just tried OSHA on 89th/2nd-very good and cozy nice space complete w three chandeiers!

          They also have sushi, right? Sort of Pan-Asian?

            No-straightfoward cooked food-no sushi that I saw.

              Thanks - I must be confusing it with another place. Does it have exposed brick walls?

              1. re: MMRuth

                i think i've been to the place you're thinking of, ruth. it was asian fusion and i think i saw on their biz card that it was the same mgmt as asia de cuba. that place was aweful.

                  can't remember exposed brick walls but you would not forget the 3 chandeliers!

          2. I suggest Sala Thai for takeout/delivery. Nothing spectacular, but solid and dependable. Also, Land is above average and I just tried Osha for delivery last night and it was very good.

              Yeah, Sala Thai is ok, maybe a little gloppy. I started going to Jasmine because the food seems fresher/lighter and it's certainly quieter.

            2. i used to order from viang ping only when i was hungover because the pad thai was really greasy. there used to be a really great thai place near the hunter college campus in the upper 60's but i can't remember the name.. sorry. i can't find it online either so they might've closed
