I really like Laut. It's dishes are very interesting and well prepared. This was a second visit but with one exception. Our party size shrunk from Six to Two. Two people can't order enough dishes. This cuts down on variety. So when you go to Laut, and you should try Laut, bring a bunch of friends. The quality is good,... More

The service is fast, the food is good. We started with the satay tandoori chicken appetizer which was really good. For the entree, I had the pad thai chicken wok fry which was not so bad. My friend ordered the Pad see ew noodles with chicken which were good. Overall its decent value for money.

Crowded, noisy - worth dealing with if we had a top notch meal. But, food just average, service spotty, so not worth spending good dollars for a mediocre experience.

Noisy and crowded, seems like they are resting on there laurels. Food was tasty, but nothing extraordinary. Dorian fruit dessert was a bit over-spiced, can't recommend it.

Great tasting food, great ambiance . A little expensive. The place closes between Lunch and Dinner time. Mee goreng - stir fried noodle and satay were quite good The Nasi lemak and hainan chicken rice were ok

This restaurant is fun and exotic. It feels like a colorful alley in Malaysia. Fun murals and colorful decor. Service was good, friendly and quick. I had Nasi Lemak the national dish of Malaysia. It was spicy, gave me a tear or two, but very delicious! We also had a roti with sauce, also very delicious! This is a fun... More

Came for dinner after looking around online in the neighborhood for recommended thai places. This place has a lot of good reviews from other guides, but I think it is overrated. It was not especially cheap, the food was just OK and the place itself is just ordinary. It was just OK. My chicken chili with rice was not very... More

My friends took me here while they were visiting NYC and I was surprised by how lovely the place is; not only is the interior decorating beautiful, but the atmosphere is very welcoming and of course the food is delicious. We went during the lunch rush and it was quite packed, so I suggest making reservations beforehand to secure a... More

Touring the city and looking for something different. Stumbled upon this hidden gem. It was busy but was quick. They knew how to work the crowd. I was sat at the bar,no lack of service. I was served in a timely manner. Roti and curry was flavorful. Soup was good.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
