Kensi Thai - Manhattan, NY

Kensi Thai Restaurant, NY
Kensi Thai is a much-welcomed breath of fresh food above 130th street in Harlem, NYC. 

Yes, there are plenty of good local spots, but Kensi is the first neighborhood Thai place that I know of. I was elated to see their storefront and immediately tested the waters with a Vietnamese iced coffee. It was 100% authentic and provided an hours-long afternoon boost. 

Diving deeper into their food, my favorite dish was their Thai fried chicken. The three large pieces were wonderfully marinated and perfectly crispy with an excellent dipping sauce. If you are trying Thai food for the first time, this would be a good dish to start with. If you are looking for something a little different, I thoroughly enjoyed their well flavored larb chicken salad and fried chive pancakes. My coworkers, who are now equally hooked on Kensi, recommend the Pad Thai and any coconut-based curry dishes. For dessert or a sweet snack, I highly recommend the Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango. Give this place a try, I promise you will not be disappointed.
