The Zagat Review
Something “different from the norm” , this “cutting-edge” NoLita hangout offers a “new-school” take on Thai cuisine via “vibrant flavors” and very “serious spicing” ; an “attentive” team tends the “knickknack” -filled basement space, where “must-try” beer slushies can be ordered from the “cozy” bar; its tiny Mott Street sib is a counter-serve, credit card–only outfit offering a take-out menu based on the original, with some seating available.

I really enjoy the food at Uncle Boons Sister. They just added a duck leg to the menu to replace the previous pork shank dish. Their Khao Mun Gai is lovely too. The only issue is that it's really take out focused. If you dine in, don't go in a group bigger than 2 people as there's not much seating. They also won't take your order to dine in unless there are open seats (but you can order to go and then sit down.)

I ordered the curried lamb pastry, Thai basil stir fry with short rib, and milk toast. The lamb pastry was phenomenal - tasted very similar to a samosa stuffed in roti. Short rib dish was oversalted and not particularly memorable. Loved the milk toast. It was similar to Taiwanese brick toast topped with a generous portion of condensed milk. Overall, the place reminded me of Night + Market in LA, but not quite as unique.

Disappointed given that this is an offshoot to a Michelin star restaurant. We ordered 3 dishes (beef short ribs, prawn rice noodles, fried chicken over a bed of cucumber salad) and literally all dishes were overly salty and too heavy on the fish sauce. On its own, the fried chicken was great though. Portions are modest, and prices are somewhat fair. Service was fast, and seating was available pretty quickly even in the tight space. Credit/debit only (no cash). There's some potential here, so I'll be williing to give it another shot in the future.
