Good food that won't come to you

The food here is quite good -- especially their Tom Yum soup. The problem is that they have an incredibly outdated delivery area which covers most of the Upper West Side but doesn't actually serve the neighborhood where they reside. Very disappointing bias -- they should keep up with the times. They are missing out on a lot of hungry people with few dining choices around 110th and CPW/Frederick Douglass!

Not too bad

My boyfriend and I dined at Lime Leaf one night when we were looking to try something new. The restaurant ambience was serene and inviting, though our table was a bit small and the seating wasn't very comfortable. I had nowhere to put my purse and so it sat on my lap while we dined. We ordered the Shrimp & Chicken Steamed Dumplings with Sweet Soy Chilli Sauce to start and not only was the presentation impressive, but they were also pretty decent. While we waited for our main entree...view mores, our waitress served some type of airy, light chips with a slightly spicy but tangy, sweet dipping sauce. I wasn't feeling too adventurous that night, so I tried to play it safe by ordering the lobster ravioli. Again, I was impressed by the presentation of the food, though it wasn't one of the best meals I've had, it wasn't terrible either. Because Thai portions are small, my dining partner and I had room for dessert and we ordered the Tiramisu and Banana ? (I cannot recall the name but it was spectacular). Yet again, the presentation was an A+. The prices were reasonable, the meal was okay, the dessert was great and the service was good. I wouldn't say I'd love to go back to Lime Leaf. If I were in the neighborhood, I'd probably try another restaurant. However if I were looking to just have dessert, I'd probably stop in and sample another interesting concoction.view less

Horrible! Placed an order off the menu. Waited for about an hour and called. They told me the order was on the way and to give them just a few minutes. I waited ten minutes. They eventually called me to tell me they did not make the food I ordered (was on the menu). This is One hour and twenty minutes after I placed the order on the phone. They said nothing then. Of course, I ordered from their menu, it was on the menu. So One hour and twenty minutes later I have no food and a lot of a...view moreggravation. Avoid this place.view less

Now it's Thai

This pretty darn good seafood restaurant has been operating as the Lime Leaf for a few years now. The fish is still fresh, the wine list moderate, and the service good. If it's crowded, though, the noise bounces off the hard surfaces of the walls.

Average at best

My friend and I shared clamcakes or crabcakes (can't remember which) and spring rolls, and I had the green curry with shrimp while he had the red curry with shrimp. We were warned that the green curry was the spiciest of all and therefore for professionals - what a joke. It would register a 1 out of 5 at Sawatdee in downtown Minneapolis, and in general, this place can't hold a candle to the Thai here in the Twin Cities or in LA. I have no data to judge it against NYC offerings. As ...view morethe others have noted, the portions are a bit modest for the price. For a place like this the wines are average. We had a bottle of pinot blanc (a new varietal for me) which was light and refreshing but unremarkable. I really like chenin blanc with my Thai (if I don't drink Singha) and this place would be well served to add one. The waitress didn't know what corked wine is when I sampled the wine and approved it. In the capital of the world, all waiters should know wine basics, period.view less

Great food, but stupid service

The thai food is delicious, and it's the best Tom Yum shrimp soup I've ever had, but out of the 6 times I've ordered through them, they've messed up my order in some way shape or form 4 times. It also is rather pricey for Thai food and the portions are small. That being said, they make great ice tea and the food is undeniably good. Still, I hesitate to go there because who knows if I'll get the right order.

Great Food, Great Value

I have been coming to this place since it opened a few years ago. The food is very good and I think the portions are fine. I read the above reviews and was a little shocked. It's a Thai restaurant, not an all you can eat buffet. I have been to many Thai restaraunts in the city both exensive and inexpensive and this is by far my favorite. Noteable dishes are the Pad King with chicken, the spicey noodles, fried rice, spring rolls, The spicey bbq chicken and sticky rice, and the Yam ...view moreNeur (beef salad). The beef salad is great, but very spicey. The Thai iced tea is also great and they make a very good lychee martini. Servers are always helpful. It is by far one of the best options in the columbia area.view less

Comically bad food

Looking to find good food in a neighborhood with few options; this was, by far, the worst. While the place was cute and enticing, and the staff helpful, there is no redeeming the food. Portions were adequate (c.f. reviewer 1), but inedible. The microwaved rice had more in common with a hockey puck than anything I'd eaten before. The chicken had to have been soaked in soy sauce and then frozen. As cute as you try to make the place, you disguise bad food.

Pretty good place

This is a pretty good place. Strong points were the service (my waitress was excellent) and the food was prepared well. I think that there could have been more food served, though - with the small quantities you would have thought we were at a much fancier place, and I think this is the impression they were (unsuccessfully) going for. While the food was very good (my duck with pineapple was moist and yummy), it was appropriate for its price and not incredible. The quantity issue is...view more the only thing keeping this place from being a great value. But don't expect to be wowed. Be sure to try the Thai iced tea.view less
