This is a mom-and-pop Thai place in the East Village where the food is inexpensive and everything feels homemade. It isn’t anything to travel for, but it’s good for a weeknight dinner (and it’s BYOB). Sure, the space is small, but you probably won’t mind sharing it with the friendly staff. Or if you don’t like people, you can get takeout.
