After searching on trip advisor for recommended restaurants near the hotel we were staying in, we came across this little gem - so thank you everyone for the reviews!! Was a 5 minute walk from our hotel and was very busy when we arrived. We were promptly shown to a table. The food was fantastic and the service was great.... More

Started with house salad. The presentation and fried tofu was an added bonus. The food was hot and fresh. I like things spicy and this... More

My wife stumbled upon this place in March 2016 and was keen for me to try in Jan 2017. After a bitterly cold red bus ride the warmth of the restaurant was a relief. We ordered the roti, spring rolls and crab parcels for starters - they were quick and the flavours devine. I was so cold I order the... More

Really enjoyable experience at this restaurant. A nice vibe in the restaurant and the right amount of busy. The menu had plenty to eat and it was difficult to choose what to eat. I went for a Red Curry and my health conscious partner had plenty to choose from in an extensive Healthy section. The food was delicious and we... More

My husband and I were looking for a quick bite to eat for lunch near our hotel before heading out again and this place was perfect. We did a quick search on Yelp for something close by and found this restaurant had pretty good reviews. We didn't regret our choice as the food was amazing! The flavours and spices were... More

Description
Thai Select seeks to thrill the New York epicure with Thai that's global, fresh and fun. Located in the midtown-west area of Manhattan, Thai Select offers healthy, modern Thai cuisine with worldly flare. Although the signature taste remains authentic Thai in flavor, the presentation might be a bit French in aesthetics, a bit Italian in portion and a bit Japanese in simplicity. With dishes like Kee Mao Fettuccini (made with whole wheat pasta) and Fruit Fried Rice (stir-fried with seasonal fruits), Thai Crabcake (encrusted to perfection) and Coconut Puff Martini (jumbo shrimp hand-battered in coconut strips), the kitchen selects only the very best dishes in Thai cuisine and only the freshest of ingredients picked from the farmer's market for our patrons; hence the name, Thai Select.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
