“Some New York restaurants hide behind unmarked entrances and velvet ropes. Laut hides behind its menu: a pan-Asian thicket of sushi, Thai soups and Chinese noodles,” said Julia Moskin of the New York Times. While the menu might be robust enough to provide shelter during hide-and-seek, the restaurant doesn't sacrifice quality for quantity, as the Asian fusion cuisine has garnered a Michelin star.
The food owes its authentic flavor to the owners, Malaysian natives Kathy Wong and Michael Bong, whose generations-old Malaysian recipes sing a culinary siren song to both city natives and tourists. The couple's kitchen staff only works with fresh ingredients, which go into the restaurant's signature sauces and flavor-infusions, including sweet chili sauce, tamarind dressing, and coconut rice. The eatery also houses a sushi bar, where the chefs do more rolling than an inner tube dropped from the top of Mount Everest. Its ample options and welcoming dining room make Laut “well worth a visit,” says Moskin. Laut is the parent restaurant to Pasar Malam in Williamsburg, Brooklyn also featured on Groupon.
What some people are buzzing about:
“Not for those who like quiet restaurants. Great food but the noise level deters from the pleasure. Maybe best to go at lunch time. ”
“This restaurant was awesome and the food was great! Classic Thai food in a beautiful atmosphere. I will go there again!”
