Wondee Siam II - Thai food is one of my favorite type of cuisine despite there are many type of cuisine to choose from in Manhattan New York. Manhattan New York, everything is competitive including the restaurant business.
One of my hobby is to go out and try different restaurants in different neighborhoods, and to see if they are worth to go back or even recommend a friend.
Wondee Siam II was first introduced to me by a friend who lives around the neighborhood of Hells Kitchen New York. At first glance, the restaurant from outside did not look much different than other food place, it is on the Ninth Ave on the West Side of Manhattan and surrounding by other cafes, bars, and restaurants, I was surprised by the line of people ready to be seated at this 30 seats Thai restaurant.
Every dish in Wondee Siam II is oh sooo delicious, from the minute you walk in, the host or the hostess greets you to the minute you order, the service is attentive and prompt. We always start off with Papaya Salad - Som Tum * shredded green papaya, string beans, tomatoes, peanuts, dried shrimp, garlic, lime juice and chili, follow by Pineapple Fried Rice: thai fried rice with pineapple, cashew nuts, egg, tomatoes and scallions, Massaman Curry * massaman curry paste in coconut milk, potatoes, peanuts, onions and bell peppers.
I have been to many Thai restaurants in Manhattan, Wondee Siam II remain my favorite place to go. If you are every in Manhattan New York, I enjoy to give Wondee Siam a try. Wondee Siam II is located at # 813 9th Ave New York, NY 10019(Btwn 53rd & 54th St). YUMMMMM!
