All I can say is that I've eaten here more than any other restaurant since my daughter started at Pitt four years ago. The food is authentic and full of taste. Ask for your meal a lot less spicy than you would normally, they make it hot. The outdoor courtyard in the back really makes the experience. Statues, greenery, great... More

Nicky's Thai has quickly become one of my favorite places to eat in the city. I've been to both the Western Ave and Penn Ave locations and not been disappointed. The food is quite flavorful and can be made to the heat level you prefer. I tend to go for very hot spices and they hit it pretty much spot... More

We ended up eating here three days in a row because someone I know *ahem* got hooked on it the first night. Busy restaurant with amazing options. Helpful staff and fast service make this a perfect choice for lunch or dinner.

We walked over last Tuesday evening from a hotel at the convention center. Upon arrival we were asked if we had a reservation. Although we had no reservation & the restaurant was busy, they seated us with no problem. Service was friendly & professional. Started off the meal with jasmine tea & crispy spring rolls, 5 rolls on a bed... More

We went here for a late lunch after visiting the Warhol Museum. We were seated immediately and were impressed by the friendly service and menu which featured many of the Thai classics but also a handful of entrees that I've never seen before. I had a curry that is native to Northern Thailand with pineapple, peanuts, peppers, and tofu. The... More

I dined here with family. We were all visiting from out of state and my family members had already eaten here twice. It was delicious. I had an eggplant dish. Others ordered the chicken soup and curry. I would definitely go back. We dined at the downtown location.

I've been to both Pittsburgh locations multiple times and love the food. They have different menus, dahntahn has libations North side is BYOB. What I like best is all the non coconut milk dishes and the spicy stuff. They're great at explaining the dishes and really take care of you. Go there!
