If you are looking for a great lunch deal, you should stop by Room Service, a Thai restaurant located in Hell's Kitchen (who would guess with that name that it is a Thai joint?). It has been a while since we wanted to try it, but it seemed to be always packed for dinner, so, one Saturday, we decided to try it for lunch, without knowing that they propose one of the best lunch prix-fixe I have seen so far. And it is not only the price ($8.50), but also the quantity that makes it awesome. So, for that $8.50, you get an appetizer and an entrée. For $1.50 more, you can add a Thai iced tea or a Tom Yum soup.
Before I talk about the food, let me tell you a bit about the decor: this place is simply beautiful, being modern and chic, definitely different from your classic Thai place.
You would not be surprised if I told you that I took advantage of their deal and got a Thai iced tea, one of my favorite beverages. It was pretty good with not too much ice in it.
For her meal, Jodi chose the vegetable dumplings and the pad see ew with tofu. The dumplings were good: tasty with a shell that was thin. The pad see ew were also delicious, as was the tofu that was not bland at all.
On my side, I got the spring rolls and the chicken Penang curry. The spring rolls were fine, a bit too much wrap around, but with a delicious filling that had corn in it. The curry was exquisite, although I wish they had the massaman one that I prefer (there were a bit too much veggies for my taste).
As you can see the quantities were generous for the price. For instance, usually, you would get one spring roll instead of three at Room Service. Even the portion of curry was close to twice what I usually get for lunch special. So this makes Room Service a great spot for some good Thai food at a very reasonable price. I definitely recommend it!
Enjoy (I did)!
