Prik-Pow is a family owned and run Thai restaurant that provides standard and well-prepared Thai dishes in a small, intimate (less than 10 tables) hole-in-the-wall spot near the Metuchen train station. A variety of Thai dishes are available, and service is very friendly and accommodating....More

I decided to try this restaurant based on the menu posted online. The sign outside reads "Prik-Pow". After being seated, I noticed the menu was quite different from what I'd seen online, and the restaurant name on the menu was "Thai Garden", not Prik-Pow. I...More

I have been here several times and am always eager to try the new special appetizers. There is a nice vegetarian selection (I love the ?red bean? pancakes). Something as simple as a main dish salad is so tasty; the veggies are really crisp and...More

Prik Pow is a tiny restaurant at the end of a side street near the railroad tracks. Don't let the building size or location keep you away. Bring a bottle of wine or some beer and prepare to have some wonderful, spicy, flavorful Thai food....More

I almost gave up finding the place but decided to walk to the very end of the street. And, there it was in bright green. A little Thai oasis with great service and food. Many of the dishes are common to thai restaurants in the...More

We came here on a whim. It's the most charming little place in town. Tucked away between a auto shop and train-you might not give it a second glance but you should. The service was extremely friendly and food was fresh and delicious. We'll be...More

We used to absolutely love this place! However, it was taken over by a new owner (a delightful young woman) who made some changes to the menu. We still eat here fairly regularly but the food is inconsistent. Some times it's perfect, other times the...More
