Up spring rolls are sooo good! As well as the red Sangria!.. For my entree, I got the pineapple Thai fried rice with shrimp. Also good! Very pleased with the food and service.

Service was great (first ones for an early dinner at 5). Loved the ambience and . Food was great especially the mango avocado salad. Tom Yum soup was flavorful (having tried it at multiple places including in Thailand). Pad thai was not too heavy. Would recommend and return.

Good ambiance and delicious food, but the service may need some improvement - our waitress is totally clueless and forgetful.

From Our Editors

According to co-owner Apisip Kulviwat, the name for Up Thai is actually a subtle nod to two of the restaurant's main goals: to fill a much-needed Thai food gap on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and to creatively reimagine Thailand's most iconic street foods. The chefs accomplish that by using unique, varied ingredients in otherwise familiar Thai dishes. Not everything is a departure from authenticity, though. The pad thai here has real tamarind juice in the sauce, and Kulviwat says that the tender pork chops—his own favorite dish—taste like home thanks to fragrant lemongrass.

Although the menu is rooted in flavors and recipes from half a world away, the décor aims for something a bit closer to home. Ivy-lined trellises, intentionally distressed walls with brickwork showing through plaster,and lush greenery create a relaxing space that feels like a park or garden. Kulviwat says the goal is to create a spirit-lifting environment where it feels like "summertime all year round." Along that vibe, an eclectic cluster of lanterns resembles a nighttime constellation in one corner of the dining area, which sets the mood before the bar's inspired cocktails come out. Among those is First Kiss, which balances the sweetness of pear vodka and a sugar-coated rim with a refreshing dose of mint and basil leaves.
