These guys do a good job of delivering tasty no frills Thai food in relaxed setting. Staff is professional. Curries very respectable. Very cheap corkage if you want to bring your own wine.

I was looking for a nice place to meet up with an old friend who was staying on the Lower East Side and who suffers from celiac disease which severely cut down on cuisine choices. Fortunately, Sticky Rice fit the bill perfectly location-wise and culinary-wise. We met right at noon when it opened and the atmosphere was very warm and... More

Service was super friendly. Had the red and green curries which were excellent. Corkage is 5 bucks which is pretty amazing for NYC. Just a solid all around experience in a fun, young hood.

Visited during the week. We both had the Pad Thai combo which includes Pad Thai main along with 2 sides. The sides included vegetable spring roll, pork dumpling, satay chicken etc. Each tasted great and the chicken Pad Thai was particularly good! All for $9.95 which is amazing value in NYC.

We had dinner there and everything we ordered was amazing. The ambience is also very nice. The only recommendation would be to reduce the volume of the music a bit (personal preference though).

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
