Pad Thai UES

So far my favorite Pad thai is at Room Service in Hells Kitchen. Unfortunately, they won't deliver to the UES so I am stuck trying to decide the best Pad Thai. Spice is ok, but much better to order the drunken man noodles.

After being in Thailand I am itching to find the best. Let the discussion begin.

    I am not exaggerating when I say there is literally no good Thai on the Upper East Side. Gong does a serviceable version. Land is popular, but I have never cared for them.

      JungMann-Have you tried Osha on 89 and 2nd? It's very good. Small place but I always loved the preparations there.

        I believe I have. They're part of a trio of restaurants a few blocks from each other (Enthaice and Tiny Thai are the others) and they are the ones who stood out, but not by much. Enthaice, is actively flavorless whereas Osha, iirc, has flavor, but tends to be overly sweet.
