The restaurant is located in the middle of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A Polish populated location with a lot of punk / rock young adults. The streets have graffiti with a bit of a dangerous feel to it at times. You can walk west towards the water and enjoy a Manhattan view. (My father use to take us here during 4th of July fireworks every year).
The food is delicious and the people are great. Be prepared to wait a long time to be seated because there are no reservations and it’s always crowded. Come early and have some drinks at the chic bar and enjoy the fun atmosphere. Their bathrooms are worth visiting even if you don’t have to go.
There are other restaurants on the same block that you can visit if the wait is too long.
Favorite Dish Chicken fried rice -yum!
i have to say the place looks wonderful. the food is so-so, they seem to use the same sauce in almost every dish..duck sauce..or some type of sweet but yet sourish sauce. customer service, i would not say is the best. if you try to file a complaint against any of their employees, they speak good for their employees and their employees only. i had a problem with one of their employees, and the manager didn't even know how to apologize and make up for his employee's rudeness, infact he was trying to explain that his employee is like every other human being, and that they make mistakes. its one thing to make a minor mistake but its another thing to insult a customer.
The interiors of this restaurant are absolutely amazing. It's almost like a nightclub spot (great as a place to start a night out..) with a dj playing, a lake in the middle and a buddha statue. The ligthning is extremely cool too. As well, the food served is excellent and cheap. Expect to pay around 7-10 bucks for the main course, and reasonably priced drinks (12 bucks for a bottle of wine).
watch the pictures on their website.
The restaurant is situated in two locations. The biggest, and by far the coolest, is the one in Williamsburg, a nice area to explore to. Also location or 1st or 2nd avenue, 3rd street I think. Look up the exact address on the intenet.
also recommended is peep, a more upscale thai in soho. wonderful dishes and a toilet where you can see the restaurant but they cannot see you!
Favorite Dish I recommend Rama the king, a wonderful peanut and red curry dish.
What a beautiful place! We went there in the afternoon to have a drink only.
The interior is splendid. In the middle you have a pool surrounded by greenery, watched over by a golden Buddha. All around there are low tables to eat.
At the entrance you have a kind of ball-chairs.
Even the toilets are beautiful :-)
Unfortunately, the staff isn't really friendly and customer-minded.
SEA Thai Bistro is a well designed Thai restaurant in Williamsburg. The place has been able to combine good food, good service and trendy interiors with inexpensive prices. I was especially delighted to see Eero Aarnio's bubble chairs on the lounge. Way to go!
The restaurant provides the basic Thai fare with some international flavour. The menu is not extensive, but even more picky people can find something on the list.
The food comes quickly, as usually in Thai restaurants. The taste is good and the portions are sized right; no need to eat until you burst.
Favorite Dish Thai curries are always a good choice. Just remember to select proper hotness...
This restaurant located in Williamsburgh is one of the coolest I had visited in NY. The bar is full of crazy props and decor, like circular toilet booths, funky backdrops and perspex pods hanging from the ceiling to sit in......very James Bond!!!
The restaurant offers excellent Thai -influenced food at very reasonable prices. Service is good with little pretentions from the staff in such an up-beat cool place (which makes a nice change)
Favorite Dish Sizzling Beef and Black bean (extra hot) with sticky rice
Best Lychee martinis! Inexpensive food.
When you walk in a large Buddha in front of an orchid silkscreen is at the end of a pool filled with Lotus. Round bamboo bathrooms each has a tv screen to watch incoming guests at front door.
there are a few restaurants with differnt names but same owners/concepts. sea, spice and peep are all affordable, trendy, delicious thai restaurants. most are located in downtown manhattan but one is williamsburg, brooklyn. i highly recommend all of them
