Thai Chella - Manhattan (Now Closed)

Thai Chella, Manhattan, NYC
If you find yourself in Manhattan and are in the mood for Thai food, you might as well wander over to the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and pick from one of the dozen or more restaurants that line 9th Ave. I have had the opportunity to try nearly all of them and they tend to vary widely in quality. Whenever a new one opens up I do my best to give it a try in an endless search for the best. Currently, the best one around is a little hole-in-the-wall spot called Thai Chella.

The Grub:

If you've had Thai food before, you already know what's on the menu at Thai Chella. Noodle dishes, curries, fried rice and multiple iterations of stir fry make an appearance and having tried a little bit of everything here I can honestly say there's a slim chance you'll order a bad dish. I can make some specific recommendations though and suggest trying their Pad Thai (good-old standby), Thai Basil Stir Fry or their Green Curry. While their dishes may walk "the beaten path," they certainly walk it with more experience than any other in the vicinity. Do your taste buds a favor and stop in for a lunch special or pop in after a show and see what I mean.

The Digs:

Thai Chella is quite small and has only a handful of tables and seats so it may be challenging to get a table depending on the time of day. If you happen to work near here, you should definitely add it to your lunch rotation. Service has be excellent and the staff is very friendly. Being in Manhattan just assume parking is impossible and take public transit or walk.

The Nitty Gritty:

Great little Thai joint in Hell's Kitchen.

PS: After your meal - if you are so inclined I suggest a quick walk north on 9th to stop in at  Housing Works Thrift Shop for some great deals!
