Where to Order Thai Food in Tribeca

Now that we have recommendations on restaurants from which to order in Chinese food, let’s tackle Thai. Here they are, in no order, with photos courtesy of the restaurants (unless otherwise noted):

From BPCrez:
Lan Larb Soho on Caviar.

From HSB:
I’m a big fan of Lan Larb in Soho. Their ‘official’ delivery radius on Grubhub is quite small and doesn’t cover much of Tribeca, but I’ve managed to get them to deliver down to Duane Street a few times by calling direct. They used to do these little curry puffs as a starter, which were incredible—if anyone could help nudge them to bring those back, I’d be grateful!

From Dave:
Lan Larb is without any doubt the best option in downtown.

From TribecaMom:
Lan Larb and Thailicious (above), where my daughter is a fan of the pad see ew and spring rolls. Delivery is consistently quick. I have also heard that Pongsri on Bayard is now Thai Jasmine, and it’s on Seamless. Same menu as Pongsri, but Pongsri never delivered. Favorites are pad see ew, spring rolls, gang dang curry, gai yang, and pra raam curry.

From MB:
Still miss the Thai place that used to be on Lispenard, but have ordered from Soho Thai (via Seamless) ever since. They do a decently aggressive tom yum, and their cashew stir-fry and basil stir-fry aren’t bad.

From Ellen2:
Uncle Boon’s Sister on Caviar is really good, but not cheap.

From Brett:
22 Thai on Seamless is always consistent and delivery is very fast. We only the order the same few things (pad Thai, green curry and massaman curry), so can’t speak to the whole menu, but the three things we get are authentic and very tasty. They used to have a better user interface on Seamless that allowed you to endlessly customize the add-on ingredients, but that has been scaled back recently.

From Anna:
Thai Sliders, hands down. If you call and live close by, they may be able to deliver. I wish they’d join Seamless, Postmates, etc., or at least hire a full-time delivery guy. The Penang curry and pad Thai are incredible.

  1. i second thailicious! we have been going there for over a year and the owner is the most gracious and generous host every time we go…and of course the food is delicious!

  2. Does anyone know whether any of these Thai places make (or can make) their curries vegan (that is, without fish sauce)?

  3. Thai Direct Bowls (on Seamless or direct on their website) do amazing lunch time bowls (kind of like a gourmet Chipotle for Thai Food) where you pick your ingredients. The best.

  4. Yuck! Gotta take exception to the recommendation of Thailicious. I had better Thai food in my Midwest home town more than 30 years ago. And that’s saying something. The food had no flavor, no energy and no quality. It was either greasy or bland, and it did not taste remotely healthy. How do you take all the flavor out of the ubiquitous Pad Thai? If I were blind-tasting this food, I wouldn’t even know it is Thai. Spend your money somewhere else. Eat a carrot and some hummus. Or order in from Shake Shack. Anything!
