Pad thai was incredible as were the spring rolls! Food was fresh and flavorful, not the usual generic "Thai" fare. Delivery was fast and friendly...can't wait to go here for dinner.
As a die-hard Thai cuisine fan, I have eaten at Thai restaurants all over: NYC, San Francisco, Boston, Virginia, DC, Rhode Island... but by far Olieng is among the best. The food is always fresh and balanced in flavor, and the service is fairly fast. I don't recommend going there at lunch time, or Friday nights though - these are they busy time so you might have to wait for a seat, or service. A "must" if you are a Thai cuisine fan.
Best Thai in NYC.
I live in the neighborhood and eat here at least twice a week. The food is incredible, affordable and always fresh. The pad thai, pad see-ew and gaeng-panang are my favorites. Also, you can tell them how hot you want to make the dishes. Also, for dessert I recommend the Mango with Sticky Rice. I also always go with the Thai Iced Tea for a drink. The place seats about 15 people.
My wife and I have eaten at every Thai restaurant we can think of in Manhattan, and this, believe it or not, is the absolute best. We usually get delivery, and all our friends rave about it as well. By the way, the name has changed to Olieng. Super-amazing, good and spicy.
