At Real Thai, they don’t believe in over powering our food with gimmicky decorations. They simply prepare their food with simplicity and care, the way mom makes! Everything is MSG free and is guaranteed to satisfy all your Thai cravings.
Every business strived for customer satisfaction, but at Real Thai, it’s not only a goal…..it’s a priority.
Tod Mun Corn—Golden friend corn patties; served with cucumber onion dip
Fresh Mango Salad—Shredded fresh mango, shrimp, pineapple and red onion in spicy lime dressing
Red curry—Red curry with coconut milk, bamboo shoots, green peas, bell peppers and fresh Thai basil
Pla Kra Pow—Deep-fried whole red snapper topped with Thai spicy bail sauce
Pad Thai—Very popular and the most requested pan-fried rice noodle with egg, ground peanuts and bean spouts
Pad Rad Nah—Sautéed flat rice noodles with Chinese broccoli in Thai gravy sauce
Excellent food. This was my first time ordering from them. I asked for the Pad Thai to be very spicy and have the peanuts separate and they followed my directions (which doesn't always happen with most restaurants). As a lover of Thai food, I will definitely be ordering again.

Ginger soup is the best! So fresh and full of pieces of ginger root. Only gripe is this place makes things SUPER spicy even when you request medium...I like spice but it's too much!!
Posted 7 months ago by Karen D.
Very little flavor with the pad thai, virtually no spice, tofu was rubbery, and too much oil.

I order for pick up once a week.. sometimes twice. On their worst day, this is still the best Thai food around. On their best days (which are more often than not) their food is the best thing to ever happen to my mouth!

Great Thai Food - cheap and fast and they don't use MSG. Love their Tom Yum soup

Very decent basic thai food, nothing amazing, but very satisfying for a quick weeknight thai delivery. I stick to the green curry, pad thai, spicy noodles and basil rolls and I am never disappointed. Food always comes fast and hot.

Portions are smaller, Thai Iced Tea had creepy floaties and other places (Lucious Thai) are better.

Their delivery times are wrong. I waited over an hour and a half when it said 25 min. I'm still waiting. The same thing happened last time and my food was cold too.

Fast delivery, and great food. It's lighter, and doesn't feel like its been cooked in 8 gallons of oil. Very highly recommend!

Well, delivery was lightning-fast, I'll give them that (15 minutes on a 25-40 min. estimate). But I'm a tamarind duck fan, and this one was definitely in the bottom 25% of the variations I've tried in NYC. At least half of the "crispy roasted duck" was actually dry, burnt duck - and the "mixed vegetables" was a pile of exactly one kind of green (bok choy, I think). With the tons of other options in midtown, I don't expect to use these guys again.

I order from Real Thai at least twice a month. The delivery is always fast; food is hot and fresh every time. My go-to order includes the spring rolls and spicy fried rice (either with chicken or shrimp). Neither are earth-shattering but for delivery, they are solid.

I paid for a Pad See Ew entree but instead received the lunch special.
Posted a year ago by alex p.
The food was delicious and came with a lot. I ordered an extra side of vegetables b/c usually when I order curry it's mostly broth, little filling, but this was chock full of meat and vegetables. There was no space to add the extra vegetables.
Came quickly at lunch time also, which was greatly appreciated :)

Fried rice was the worst EVER. Waste of money.

I really like this place-but whenever you order from these new owners they never
pay attention to requests- The last 3 orders I ask them to include chili sauce. It never is included. I also ask them not to do multiple deliveries while carrying my order. It always comes cold and I don't own a microwave. These new owners of Real Thai are real lazy.

Pretty bad experience! The delivery did not come on time. It took the restaurant more than an hour to have the food delivered. The meal was mediocre at the most! The Pad See We noodles were supposed to be the flat thick type of noodles; however, instead I got something which resembled shredded pieces of noodles...
The vegetable dish with brown sauce was tasteless and the sauce had no flavor...
I doubt I am ordering from this place ever again...
Posted 2 years ago by Denislav D.
The food was delivered extremely fast. The only negative I have is that the 'medium' choice is still pretty hot!
Tasty and great delivery
Posted 2 years ago by Matthew B.
Really good chicken panang curry; good portion size and generous helping of vegetables. Medium spice level could be a bit more intense, but still very flavorful! Brown rice came in a normal sized container (unlike something other places which make you pay $1 extra and then give you half the portion as white rice!) Delivery was very quick (I live close to the place so that probably has something to do with it). Overall, very pleased with my order and will definitely be ordering from here again.

Took two hours for delivery to arrive. I called after an hour and they said it was on its way; after an hour and a half I called again and they said it had just left. The delivery guy couldn't figure out how to leave the delivery with reception when it finally did come. The food was ok but the portions for the lunch special were small and the food arrived lukewarm. Don't order from here.

excellent food. my favourite restaurant. but don't order when it's busy.

*** DO NOT ORDER DELIVERY *** By far the biggest disappointment throughout our 3 years of ordering delivery experience. It's been now 2 hours since we placed our orders, and the food still has NOT arrived. We called 4 times in the last 1 hour, and either the calls were not picked up, or the receptionist had no idea what was going on. Eventually she said the delivery guy already came out, and just hang up the phone without allowing us to ask further questions. We are trying to call back again now, and no one has picked up the call. This is the first time we are trying their food, but honestly, I will never order again from this place even if their food is good.

terrible TERRIBLE pad thai. It was bland and most likely reheated since it was deliver in under 15 minutes. sketchy.

I highly recommend the spicy fried rice. It was so delicious I literally tripped balls after eating it.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I placed an order for delivery and waited 2 hours! I called the restaurant to check the status of the order and they disconnected their phone and it got sent straight to voicemail. If you're still considering ordering from this place, be sure to order a few days in advance.

I order from Real Thai at least once a week. Whether it's pick-up, delivery or dining in- their service is always very good. Their food is pretty good- Favorites are the Red Curry, Vegetable delight, Pad See-Ew and Spicy noodle.

I consider one of the best values for your dollar. The Massaman and Panang curries are great. Orders are always seem to be delivered within 15 minutes.

good food, but service is terrible- long wait for delivery and they keep ignoring special delivery instructions for writing the customer's name on the bag when delivering to office buildings. not a good way to do business with the midtown lunch crowd!

Not very good at all. The Pad Thai was incredibly greasy. The Tom Yum soup was ok, but nothing special. Sure wish I had ordered during the proper lunch special times, at least then I wouldn't have wasted all that money.
Posted 5 years ago by Deborah R.
Ordered basil chicken which looked like half the dish spilled on the way, because the container was not even half way full. Also, very bland and no sauce what soever. Very dry. The free rice was better than the dish itself. Also, I asked for a side of hot sauce and no hot sauce. The fresh basil spring rolls were not so good either, no basil, basically filled with rice. I would recommend Lucious Thai or another close thai place over this next time.

This was my first time to order from this restaurant. I was impressed with the quality of the food, and the home-cooked sort of preparation - delicious, not greasy and healthy, so long as you are not expecting the fancy haute cuisine preparation of the expensive sort of restaurant.

amazing!! best pad thai everything is superb!!

Quick and spicy this is one of my "go-to" places for lunch
Posted 5 years ago by Renee B.
I always write spicy on the special delivery instructions but I don't think they read it. Because it always comes without the heat! You should definitely call them if you want any thing different on your food.
Posted 5 years ago by Hien T.
Was very pleasantly surprised with the speed of delivery and quality of food. Food arrived less than 30 minutes after we ordered. We ordered the fresh basil roll, pad see ew with chicken, and vegetable delight with tofu, and everything tasted great. Neither entree was too greasy, and the jasmine rice was soft and piping hot. I will definitely order again!

Great thai food! The chicken pad thai is amazing and I order it every time! The salads and other appetizers are a little limited, but the noodle dishes make up for it.

Call up to change the deliver time to an earlier time and they were eager to oblige. The food was hot, delicious and pretty close to authentic.
