I have lived in NYC for many years and for the last several of those many years, I have had Sripraphai recommended to me. I live in South brooklyn so it always seemd far and it was one of those places I always meant to get to and just didn't. Now I am leaving NYC in 2 months and have recently finally been to Sripraphai (three times in 2 weeks). Oh how I wish I could have back the last however many years of my life it is that they have been here and do those years over, eating there as much as is humanly possible. I seriously had no idea just how much better Thai food could be.
So, my fellow Chowhounds, if you have not been there and have always planned to, don't be an idiot like me. Just get your butt over there!
For the record, so far I have eaten: sausage appetizer, grilled beef with chili and lime appetizer, bean thread salad, crab & shrimp dumplings, chicken massaman, and a curry noodle soup with chicken.
