Jaiya Pad Thai Equivalent - UWS?

nativeNYer | Feb 2, 2008 02:42 PM

So we're craving pad thai tonight but don't want to trek over to Jaiya who serves our favoite pad thai in the city. For those of you who have had Jaiya's pad thai, which UWS Thai restaurant would you say serves the most similar pad thai?

There is just something about the Jaiya pad thai that I can't quite explain. It's not just plain, old, tastless noodles mixed with what tastes like boiled chicken. This dish has such a great texture and taste, aside from the fact that they actually spice it up.

So, tell me, to those of you who have had the pleasure of tasting Jaiya's pad thai, have you found something equivalent on the UWS? We've tried Thai Market, Saigon Grill, Bangkok House, Amber, Pam Thai Encore (what's with that weird red sauce?!?!?!), Yum Yum Bangkok, Lime Leaf, Charm, Land as well as several other places on 9th. Any recommendations? Ideally, a place that would deliver to the W70s would be ideal.

What do you guys think? Thanks!!
