I love a good Thai lunch special. You can find them all over the city and it’s essentially an app and an entree (usually the most standard options) for a reasonable price. The food might not blow your mind, but it’s usually very very satisfying. Thai @ Lex serves one of these lunch specials but has more options than most and includes three courses instead of two. You weren’t relegated to an oily spring roll for your app and you had choices of noodles, currys, and rices for your main.
Still, I went basic with a dumpling appetizer, salad, and pad see ew. The portions were quite hearty and the food was very good – better than expected. If you’re UES and looking for some good Thai takeout, this is a great option.
