This should not be a restaurant on OT. Truly frustrating to be the only table in the restaurant, and not get served over a twenty minute period. The one person working was busy managing the 5+ tablets at take out, with a hoard of delivery people waiting for orders. We didn't eat, as I overheard the frustrated delivery pick ups were 15 minutes behind.

We were a little disappointed after reading all of the positive reviews. We were also uncomfortable about the “Grade Pending” sanitary code in the window. The place itself is cute and cozy, and we will probably give it another chance, if it gets an “A” sanitary code rating.

The bathroom had no lights and two small cheap motion activated LEDs on the wall that barely made things visible in there. Otherwise, the place was great. Food was tasty.

Great food in a nice, quiet space in the East Village. The food was delicious, and a lot of food for your dollar as well! I will definitely come back.

Very Thai is a cute little restaurant that is very good to have in the neighborhood, and could be great with some tweaks. The place has nice glowing lighting at night and tables are not too close so you can have a quiet conversation and not be privy to someone else's, which is often the case in East Village restaurants. The soft rock music played also created a soothing atmosphere from what you normally find around here. Only problem with the quiet is you can hear all the goings on in the kitchen, which is ok in a take out joint, but
doesn't quite fit with the vibe that they're going for here. This seems to be a family endeavor, and the service is very friendly and gracious as though you are eating in someone's home. We started with the papaya salad which was fresh, colorful and crunchy and had a bright, nicely pungent dressing. We tried the duck roll which was beautifully presented and tasty, but we wished there was more sauce offered with it, as it ate a bit dry. The best dish was the shrimp fried basil rice, with it's lovely presentation of garnishes, and redolent with complex flavors. The vegetable massaman curry was also vibrant with colorful crunchy vegetables in an bright orange coconut sauce, and though well seasoned, it was too sweet and that was not what I wanted. Appreciated that there was brown rice on offer to go with it though. Portions here are ample. I would come back some time to try some of the interesting fish dishes on offer.
