If you are like me and love Thai food, I think you might enjoy this place. There are so many choices in Chelsea Market your head will spin like a top. The hypnotically good cooking fragrances coming from this place are what lured me in. There was a short line, and not a whole lot of seating. Real talk: It... More

The place is small and probably it is a bit difficult to find a table and a chair during peak times. They have got pictures and description of each dish next to the tills. Loved the chicken satay and some stir fry whose name I can't remember. Good price, good service (fast). Delicious food!! I would go back.

This place is not bad for a quick bite rather than a full blown meal. The table was dirty and had to clear it ourselves.

This is the only Thai restaurant in Chelsea market. It is right beside the Lobster restaurant in Chelsea. Surprisingly the food was good. I ordered a minced chicken dish while my friend ordered meatball noodles. Both of us found the food quite tasty(I almost suspected they added sugar because it was tasty). The tables are few so you have to... More

Chelsea Thai is located n Chelsea Market. We visited while on the High Line, we wanted to take something to go and enjoy up on the Line. I wanted to try something different, and this Thai spot seemed OK. It's part reastaurant and part grocery store. the menu is huge, but it was hard for me to decide because everything... More

Every dish we ordered was delicious. But the service was very bad. When you order they call you by the number on your receipt The waiting area is further back. after waiting a while I went back up to ask if our order was ready. They had already called our number but we didn't hear it. The lady told me... More

The menu was super reasonable for Chelsea Market. I got my usual -i.e. my go to at any Thai place, but they made a spicy dish super mild without mentioning anything. My best guess is that they make things bland for tourists. It's a shame because otherwise, IT WAS ON POINT.

I had a quick dinner at this restaurant last week and I loved it! Quick service, lots of choices, very rich and authentic flavours. Reminded me of my favourite Thai restaurants in Australia. Definitely recommend going here for take-away or a quick eat at their tables (no table service).

I really liked the pad-thai I ate here and it costed like 12$. The amount of food was more than enough for me, really big portion. They have some tables to sit and you can also take it away. I only waited for 10minutes to have my food prepared.

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
