Senn Thai opened a couple of weeks ago at 452 Amsterdam Avenue (82nd street), the former home of Cocina Economica, and we’ve already been hearing good things about it.
In fact, it sounds like the folks at Land Thai might have something to worry about (yes, we know many of you don’t think much of Land Thai!).
One reader wrote to us saying “They’ve been open for about 2 weeks. Quality of the food at Senn is outstanding — best Pad See Ew I’ve ever had.”
Yelp has three reviews up, which is not much of a sample size. But one notes disappointment with Land, even as it praises Senn: “Up until now I’ve satisfied my weekly cravings at nearby Land, which is good but painfully inconsistent in terms of quality… [At Senn] I had the drunken noodles with calamari. He had the chicken green curry. We were so happy with our entrees we split the mango gelato and sticky rice for dessert. Everything was great.”
Also Senn apparently doesn’t serve pad Thai, though “The dish they serve instead looks way tastier than most pad Thai I’ve seen.”
Fyi, the owners are different from the owners at Land, an employee told us (some readers had inquired).
