You can't come to Parkslope, Brooklyn without eating at Song! The ambiance is very trendy and relaxed and the crowd is lively, but not obnoxious. Everything I've ever ordered here was delicious, but I would highly recommend the Mango Gai Yung- thai mango salad with a grilled chicken half and sticky rice.The portion size is very generous and the mango really adds to the dish by complimenting the flavors. The seasoning in their dishes sets them apart from most thai restaurants. Even their traditional pad thai tops the list as exceptional. But, I should warn, they are closed during most holidays and occasionally I've walked by and they've been closed for no apparent reason so always call before you just show up.
I find it funny how people usually write reviews when they have something negative to say. Joya always has long waits on the weekends but they are deffinetly worth the time! Food is amazing -best pad thai and spring rolls in Brooklyn-and their alcoholic drinks are very good too. The place is a good choice for a variety of occations, family, dates, celebrations, etc. The hosts are friendly, considering how many impatient customers they probably run into. But whats great is that you can always sit at the bar while you wait. The crowd is great, there are a variety of people. Overall A+!
I went here with a friend once as we were in the area shopping. We walked by this place and decided to try, now I'm glad we did. If you like Thai, try their beef massaman curry, but order fried calamari first as an appetizer. I don't recommend their spring rolls but I guess that's just me. If you are a Thai food fan and find yourself in the area, do pass by for lunch. It's good food at a pretty affordable price.
