“Another go-to destination is SriPraPhai on 39th Avenue near the 7 subway stop at 61st Street. They just finished renovating the facility so the interior is more spacious. The place has an extensive 20-page menu filled with delicious and authentic Thai cuisine. Definitely try the Thai Green tea and the Pad Thai. They are divine!”
