Why: Room Service is one of the trendiest Thai Restaurants in Hell’s Kitchen. The ambiance is modern, sexy and beautiful, perfect for a date night or a night out with the girls. Due to its reasonable prices, Room Service is a solid option for anyone planning a birthday dinner or a group gathering. Admittedly, during my multiple visits, the service has ranged from just “ok” to very good. My last visit was on a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. Despite the lack of attentiveness during the beginning of our dinner, the service got progressively better as the night continued.
Overall, the food is simply delicious and what Room Service lacks in “Service”, they make up for it with their delicious menu. Particularly, the flavors are authentic and the portions are ample, perfect for sharing and tasting multiple items on the menu. Now let’s get to the good stuff, what should you order at Room Service? Check out my top recommendations below:
Golden Assorted Fritters – Crispy chicken and shrimp dumplings, blanketed shrimps, corn spring rolls and sesame tofu with crushed peanut sweet chili dipping sauce
Chicken Satay House- marinated chicken served with our signature peanut dipping sauce
Grilled Ginger Honey Pork Chop– Marinated pork chop sirloin with ginger, cherry wine and herbs served with sautéed mixed vegetables in garlic sauce
And, if you want to keep it simple then order:
Thai Mixed Chicken and Shrimp Dumplings – With vegetables and potatoes. Served with house black bean mushroom dipping sauce
Room Service Pad Thai – Sautéed glass vermicelli with shrimps, mixed seafood, mangoes, brown tofu, bean sprouts, scallions, crushed peanuts, tamarind juice and purple coconut milk beet sauce, wrapped in an egg white crepe (not pictured)
