Absolutely Zero stars. It’s main restaurant (Western Ave) cited for several food safety violations, closed down (mid May 2018) by the Allegheny County Health Dept.

The consensus from all seven of us was that the food was good to great. I’m not into Thai food but was overruled so I went in reluctantly. It sounded like everyone else enjoyed their meals, though, from their comments. The place was small but...More

Food was yummy. One thing that could have been better was the Thai iced tea. I have had better Thai iced tea in other Thai restaurants.

When I want Thai this is the only place to go. Nicky’s has the heat you want and the homemade Thai food is amazing.

This is THE place for Thai food in Pittsburgh area. Not just one entree, all of them.....outstanding. There is no question if you like Thai food p, you know about Nicky’s. Only problem is the risk of wait without reservations. Top notch.

Stopped in for dinner and it was worth the visit. Had a 20 minute wait to be seated, which is a good sign to me. Ordered Pad Thai with Spring rolls appetizers. Food was delivered in a good amount of time and the flavors were...More

Food leaves much to be desired. Poor customer service. The host Olivia had a terrible attitude and argued with me for over an hour about my incorrect order. Terrible!!!

The north side location was...unsure if the one in the theater district was as there are multiple locations. They are owned by the same people though so I’d steer clear for a bit, unfortunately.
