☞ INTRODUCING: Hamilton Heights Thai Opens



The rumors have turned out to be true that a Thai take-out will open at the front end of the laundromat at 754A St. Nicholas Avenue and 148th Street. A reader provided a tip that Tri Thai Cuisine has finally opened in the rounded glass block atrium of walk-in laundry and dry cleaning establishment last Friday.  We checked it out this weekend and found that the cuisine and proprietors do match up (most asian establishments uptown are run by chinese owners) and the take-out corner oddly pleasing in a contemporary fashion.  Green, red or yellow Thai curry options are only around the $5.00 range and we noted a lot of the signature Holy Basil ingredient enhancing the dishes.  Curry filled pastry puffs are all under $1.00 and they sell Thai iced coffee along with other beverages. The owners mentioned that they will try to open a sit-down restaurant in the area if the take-out service does well.  So if you are in the Heights, make sure to drop by the only authentic Thai take-out above 110th Street.  Delivery service will be up soon but they don't have menus printed as of this moment. As a reader noted in the past, the dream of getting one's laundry AND Thai food delivered has finally become a reality.  Only in Harlem folks!  Closest subways are at the A,B,C,D stop on 145th Street.

  1. So this is take-out only? No seats?

  2. Purely take-out...it's in a laundromat so not the best dining environment.

    Please let's hope this is a start. We need so much more to service the community demand. No more hair weaving and dollar stores please.

  10. Just picked up some food from this place. I got massaman curry dish with tom yum soup for just under $10. The food tastes great for takeout. Tom yum flavor was great although a little skimpy on the mushrooms, etc. I'm definitely going back for more.

  11. I went there tonight and had the red curry and one of the noodle dishes. It was great! It's a solid Thai place and a fantastic addition to the area. Hopefully enough people will go so that they can open up a full service space.

  12. Harlem is long overdue for Thai or any type of Asian food that is not Chinese. If it is indeed good, it is a welcome addition. Too bad it is in a laundromat.

  13. I went there the other night. And while it's odd to pick up thai in the front of a laundry mat lol. They were very nice and the food was yummy :)

  14. It's been closed for the last couple of months, has anyone else noticed??? Apparently the lady has been out on vacation or sick... It wasn't clear... :( So sad!! I've been calling them regularly asking when she'll be back...

    We lost the only Thai place (which was more authentic than any other place in manhattan) in the neighborhood folks!! Please do something!!
