Worth the Trip Every Time!!!

With as many Thai restaurants as NYC has to offer, it is a wonder that anyone would take the trouble of trekking over to Woodside - unless, of course, the trek is to Sri Pra Phai. This unassuming and rather spacious, by NY standards, Thai haven will wow your palate with more seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes than you can imagine, cooked to perfection with enough creativity and spice to make your mouth water and keep you riding the 7 train for more. Sit in the garden on summer nights and enjoy a glass of wine (limited selection) with your culinary treats. Enjoy!

Food and Service are terrible

I completely agree with the reviews posted by Madmags and David321. This restaurant has received some attention from the press and apparently those reporters/food critics either were paid a little something on the side to give such rave reviews OR they don't have a clue as to what is good Thai food.

My wife ordered the meatballs, same as Madmags and my description of that dish is exactly what Madmags wrote. Can we say mystery meat?! On top of everything else, one of the waiters had such bad BO that I thought there was a mangy dog somewhere in the courtyard with us. It smelled like a dog with wet hair that hadn't been bathed in weeks. My wife was feeling sick from all the disgusting smells permeating the entire place.

I don't know how this restaurant has received such notoriety. We will NEVER go back. The food and service are awful.

If I may, I'd like to suggest, Nusara. A small little Thai place on Broadway (corner of Elmhurst Ave) in Elmhurst, Queens. It's in the strip of restaurants next to the Chinese supermarket. Service is very good and food is very tasty.

Definitely Not Worth the Hype

Having read all the great reviews we decided to try Sripraphai last Saturday night. We were seated right away and ordered what we thought was going to be an excpetional meal. We started with the grilled ""Beef"" meatballs in a spicy plum sauce. The appetizer arrived and to tell you the truth I am not sure what kind of meat this was but it certainly was no beef we've ever eaten. The ""meat"" was so chewy that you couldn't even cut it properly and it had such an odd rubbery consistency that I could not eat it with dousing it in the sauce. My husband ordered the pad thai and I ordered the Red curry with beef. While both entrees were acceptable, the best thing about the entire meal was the $4 Thai beer. We got home and both had such upset stomachs that we probably won't be back. There are many other Thai restaurants that we enjoy more.

OMG! what a terrible service in Sripraphai

Oh my gosh! what a terrible service in Sripraphai

On January 3rd, Sunday at about 8:45 we, two families, went to this restaurant. When we entered the restaurant we figured it out was almost empty. One of the waitress with a glasses( lately we found her name is Key) approached and put us, altogether 6 people, in the middle of the restaurant but we like to sit in the corner. She told us rudely that they were closing at 9:30 which was after 45 minutes. We were surprise why she was worried and at the same time we felt uncomfortable to sit at the middle of the restaurant but we console ourself. Again a waiter was chatting with a loud voice in a cashier counter which was annoying. Before we check the menu the same waitress came to take the order and unfortunately we don't know the menu. Meanwhile my wife was giving order, I found other server was bringing some food to our table and that was not our order. Then my nice liked to explain her but she got made with my nice. I requested my wife to match with her and do some additional order for take out and when we got that order, that was mistake too. So my wife was trying to figured it out why the mistake was happening one after another then the waitress Key exploded with my wife in the middle of the restaurant. When I interrupted to minimized with the waitress and asked her to send the manager and then she told me to go to cashier counter and talk to the manager because the manager is not coming to me. I never ever heard in my life this kind of answer from wait staff. Then one of the girl came to us and told us no need to complain about them and they will give the food on the house but we don't agree with her and pay the entire bill which was $156 along with gratuity. The same waitress, Key, was repeatedly screaming us and we felt so embarrass in front of other customers and also the manager never showed up. So far my understanding the management don't care about the service because the food is good and if the owner think the same way then I have nothing to say.

I've had better

The hype about this place prior to my first visit was overdone. The food was average and the service as lousy as could be. It took 15-20 minutes before a waiter/waitress even acknowledged us and that was after having to flag one down! It took 3 times to get our drink order right (all we ordered were soft drinks), and it took multiple requests to get us utensils to enjoy our soup, which was brought out in the wrong size originally. Then when the food was brought out, it was in peices leaving several people with no food while the rest of us were eating. The food wasnt terrible but it was not worth the trouble! Not once did the waitress come back and check on us through out the night and had to get the attention of another waiter to get our check. Once we received the bill, it wasnt even itemized and written out in Thai ,(HELLO THIS IS F-ING AMERICA) and had no idea what we were charged for. AVOID THIS PLACE, there are much better authentic thai restaurants with better food and service.

Excellent food. One of the best Thai place

Kao Soy chicken was awesome. Recomended to lot of friends and they had the same great experience. Food is cheap and awesome.
The only problem is you need to pay only by cash.
Foodwise, one of the best Thai place I have been to.

Decent but authentic

Very affordable, The main course OK; if you want more than OK Thai, your better bet is SEA in Williamsburg Bklyn

The renovation was worth the wait; more space, nice decor and price remains very reasonable. The garden is just a wonderful addition. But... can't make too much noise coz the neighbors will complain.

Superb food in an unpretentious locale

This is what Thai is supposed to be. I come here every few months and the quality of the food is always exceptional, with no ups and downs. You can't go wrong with a dish here. The service is fine -rushed sometimes but generally attentive. With the addition in recent years of more tables and the outdoor patio, the customer turnaround is quicker and the wait a bit more bearable. Well worth the trip from Manhattan and other boroughs.

This is one of those places you just can't find in the city.
Everyone is thai, from the customers to the cooks and waiter/waitresses.... YOU KNOW its good Thai food is you see Thai customers in there. lolz I like to go when its beautiful out because there backyard is absolutely gorgeous amidst an area that is lacking... Parking isn't too bad either.
