Love Nicky's. It can be loud, but the food can't be beat- great curry, and the Tom Yum soup is fabulous!

Stopped at Nicky's on Western Avenue for lunch today. Promptly seated. Our waiter, Joe, was at the table promptly, very knowledgeable of the menu and made great recommendations. I think this is the best Tom Kha soup in the City, I had a special combination curry and my wife had Spicy Garlic Glass Noodles with pork. Both were Very Very... More

Excellent Thai, true to the ratings. I had the Wild Curry with vegetables and Tofu. I got a 7 out of 10 spice level and it was just right. Full of flavor. This restaurant is frequented by the ethnic Asian populations too.

I've been here several times, and never left disappointed. They have a great variety of dishes and specials. The outdoor garden is beautiful, but can get a bit crowded and noisy because large parties tend to gravitate there. I went with my mother who didn't think she would like Thai food, but she ate almost the entire appetizer platter by... More

Nicky's is an awesome place for Thai. I highly recommend sitting in their back patio, weather permitting. I will review the food at another time, I am strictly writing to correct the false review below. Nicky's is open all day Saturday, I've gone frequently for lunch which they usually have a special that allows you to order a smaller portion... More

Nicky's Thai Kitchen is an attractive, very small restaurant with good, but not great Thai food. For that, you should try Silk Elephant in Squirrel Hill. Although the hours state that it is open all day - at least on Saturdays - do not be fooled. They are closed until 5 PM for dinner; there was a line of people... More

Average compared to other Pittsburgh Thai restaurants. Dinning room is small, cramped and loud. Their outdoor dinning is a real pleasure and I might consider returning if I can eat outside.

I love Thai food and was looking forward to going here based on reviews, but I hope others will read this and not waste their time. To begin, the reservation was at 5pm and they told us we needed to be done by 6pm. The tables were tiny and we were crammed in. We ordered the grilled beef and sticky... More

All I can say is that I've eaten here more than any other restaurant since my daughter started at Pitt four years ago. The food is authentic and full of taste. Ask for your meal a lot less spicy than you would normally, they make it hot. The outdoor courtyard in the back really makes the experience. Statues, greenery, great... More
