It Just Has To Be Delicious

Pure Thai Cookhouse Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

We went to Pure Thai Cookhouse on a Sunday lunch time. It is on 9th Avenue between 51st and 52nd Street, a small cosy establishment. When we walked in we were greeted with a cheery ‘sawasdee’ and secured a table within 5 minutes.

The menu was traditional Thai and between three of us we chose chicken satay and beef dumplings/buns to start.

Both plates were absolutely delicious – the buns packed full of shredded beef and succulent without being too stodgy. The satays were authentic and tasty, accompanied by a dish of cucumber, onion and chilli as well as satay peanut sauce.

For main course we chose pad thai with shrimp, curry paste with shrimp, chicken with holy basil and chilli, and steamed brown rice.

Wow every dish was superb, quite spicy, but so tasty that the spiciness was overtaken by the deliciousness of each mouthful.

The service was polite and efficient and the whole meal was around $60 with soft drinks.

This restaurant is a neighbourhood gem and a must-try for anybody in NYC who loves authentic, delicious Thai food.
