Great tasting menu with innovative flavors and generous portions. Great atmosphere.
The absolute best
This was our second visit to Pig and Khao, and this time, we took a friend so that we could all get the tasting menu. Our waitstaff was lovely - explaining every dish and making the evening and meal a lot of fun. The food was flavorful and thoughtfully prepared. Highlights were the chicken wings, pad Thai and actually - everything - plus the two desserts. The beer selection was great. We each found something that we felt would taste great with the food. We hope to return soon.
Food was good...sisig seemed to be a small portion, so was the adobo. Loved the crispy pata as it is boneless. A little pricey for the small plates. Wished there was a little more choices on the large plates
I keep trying to go back there but I can’t anymore the tables are just too close together. It really spoils the whole experience you can’t help but hear other people’s conversations. It is also very uncomfortable making people move so that you can get in and out of your seat.
Killer food. Quarters are close, but they blast the hip-hop to keep things from getting awkward. Thoroughly enjoyed it meal. Went back the very next day.
Great food and excellent service at a really fun venue.
Amazing food great energy. The chef found a perfect balance between home (Southeast Asia) flavors, making it fresh and new and just so God damn delicious. Will definitely go back. Now if we can get some tanduay in them cocktails, that would be ideal.
Top Notch Ribs
Ordered three small plates plus coconut rice at the waiter’s suggestion and it was the perfect amount for just myself and my boyfriend. We left fully satisfied! Highly suggest the Khao Soi and Pork Belly Adobo. Will be going back for more soon!
When you're tired of the same old-same old...give these guys a go. The sizzling sisig is not to be missed, and the pork belly adobo is the stuff of legend! Bartenders crank out fantastic and unique cocktails as well. If you really hate loud rap music, bring earplugs cause they blast it non-stop. But believe me, it's worth enduring for the awesome grub.
Highly recommend the sizzling sisig (with the coconut rice) and specialty cocktails.
Pig and khao has some amazing food!!
Husband and I shared 3 starters and 1 main which was plenty of food. Server was friendly and informed. Didn’t oversell which is always appreciated. Coconut rice ridiculously good. Butter Prawns were the disappointment of the evening.
Excellent food in a busy, no frills atmosphere. The brussel sprouts and baby octopus are among the best versions of either dish you will find in NYC. Everything skews heavily towards meat, even vegetable items have pork or other meat in them, and so can become tiresome after 4-5 dishes. That in no way is a criticism of the dishes, which are universally enjoyable, however more non-meat options would be nice even for us avid carnivores. Pick 2-3 small plates per person and be sure to share everything for maximum variety. Prices are acceptable but on the higher side. Soundtrack is mostly rap which is appropriate for the atmosphere.
Very good food! 👌
Good atmosphere in the restaurant!
The brunch is a great price, but they only give you one glass at a time and take forever to refill it. My boyfriend and I only ended up being able to get three drinks each. Is that a boozy brunch ... I don’t think so.
The waitress was also kind of *nasty* you could definitely tell that she absolutely hated being there. When I asked if it’s possible that sardines could be omitted from my dish, she said “I mean you can just pick it out” uhm okay?
When we finished our food, it was only about 30 minutes into the 2 hour brunch and she brought us the check but we said were just going to stick around a bit to drink. When we finished our second glass, we got her attention and asked for another round. Granted it was loud in the place, but she stood there and looked at us, and then said “huhhh?” As if we were asking for something out of the ordinary. It was just not a pleasant experience in terms of service.
The kitchen is in the same area as the dining tables, so expect to come home smelling like exactly what you ordered.
Now, if my waitress was nicer and more involved and I got more drinks out of my boozy brunch, the place would have been totally worth coming to and checking out because the food is good and unique.
But since the service isn’t great, I’d rather pay a little more for a boozy brunch and have a good experience elsewhere.
Great food, great music and I will definitely will be returning.
Even with every table occupied, service was professional, attentive, helpful, and charmingly warm. Every dish ordered wowed the four of us. Noise level (in the back room) was VERY high, but that increased the festive feel and did not detract from our enjoyment.
It was ok, we weren’t whelmed - we’ve heard a lot about the place but it was just ok.
I don’t normally write reviews, but Pig and Khao was just that good! Every dish was so flavorful and well balanced. The noodle dish with the anchovies was our favorite. We ordered one, but had to get another one! Service was friendly and quick. They also played awesome hip hop music.
The food here is so damn good
Lovely and tasty bottomless mimosa’s (for at least 2hours).
For someone with strict dietary needs, I had no problem with Pig & Khao, something for everyone.
Pig and Khao has amazing food and a buzzing atmosphere. Khao Soi and ribs were truly amazing. The weitress (Ann) though was not as friendly as one would expect. Upon my request she suggested how many courses we should order for two people (i am a big eater but she suggested way more than we needed, 4 small courses or one big and 2,3 small ones). We ended up ordering one big plate and one small(not that small at all) and a side of rice. Since then she was giving us attitude. Not much but just enough to make me feel incomfortable. As an experienced NY restaurant goer, I would say this attitude was not something that should exist and thus lower my experience in otherwise fantastic NY restaurant.
The food was amazing. We tried the tasting menu and were served a few chef specials that weren’t on the menu. Love this place and will definitely be back.
Fantastic food and cocktails. Service great. Space a bit crowded and noisy - not great for conversation.
All the food I had was amazing and full of flavor! I had the octopus that was a little crispier than I liked but overall the dish was light and yummy. I had it with the coconut rice which was sweet and paired better with the Khao Soi because that dish was spicier. It was full of delicious curry flavors and juxtaposition of soft and crunchy textures. It was definitely a party in my mouth! I ended it with the donuts which were so warm with a slightly gooey center and not too sweet. The lemon custard to dip it in was a nice refreshing touch too. I also ordered the daiquiri and it usually isn’t my drink of choice but I don’t like spirit forward drinks and this was recommended and I think I’d go with a wine instead next time. I highly recommend this restaurant for the outstanding food and great service. I can’t wait to go back to try more next time I’m in town!
Loved the food and flavours; service was excellent. Would have been good to know that the prixe fixe tasting menu is only for 2 or more as I was dining solo and had ventured there for that reason.
The food was goodness’s but I ordered the Pork jowl and there was about three small slices of meat on it, really disappointed :(
Amazing food - only thing is staff rushes you and ask you even when you have food in your mouth if you are ready. Otherwise beyond delicious. Let people enjoy and give them time to decide. It’s not a fast food joint (the prices def so t reflect fast food). Zero issue on price but then let me enjoy and at least chew and swallow my food and catch my breath after sitting down and read the menu.
Love Pig & Khao, only comment is I’m never able to finish my plate.
We decided to try Pig and Khao after seeing that it was participating in Restaurant Week. We had planned on partaking in their restaurant week offering. However, it was an all or nothing situation. Because one member of our party is a vegetarian, and the Restaurant Week menu lacked a vegetarian entree, we decided to skip it and ordered from the regular brunch menu..
That turned out to be a good thing. We started out with bottomless mimosas (only $16!!), with the juice options of lychee, white peach, mango and orange. The lychee worked well with the champagne and was our favorite, though the white peach was also quite good. The Vietnamese coffee was perfect, and reminded us of our time in Vietnam.
For our meal we ordered the Banh Xeo, which was a light fried crepe stuffed with shrimp, bacon, and pickled veggies. It was delicious. The Khao Soi struck the right note between the red curry and coconut milk. But, the table favorite was Chile Pan Mee, which contained ramen noodles with fried anchovies, sausage, and a poached egg. We ordered an extra side of tasty garlic fried rice just to soak up every drop of the sauce.
The décor is an eclectic mix, while the music was consistently bumping with hip-hop beats. The service was knowledgeable and attentive.
What a delicious way to start a Sunday. We can’t wait to go back!
Was unaware that that certain items were only served during specific times. I had also ordered multiple items, but part way asked to pack the remaining items to go. When I had gotten home, I realized that 2 items of what I ordered were not packed.
Brunch at Pig & Khao was phenomenal. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared. Would highly recommend to others!
The food was exquisite. I love the pork jowl, It was so full of flavor and cooked very well
Loved it! We went for restaurant week and the value and food was amazing!!!
Went for restaurant week. Four courses was too much but luckily we were able to bring one course home for leftovers. I thought everything was really tasty, just some dishes were way too heavy on the salt. Some items are a little over priced but worth checking out.
Great food and atmosphere. Can’t say there was a dish I didn’t like!
I enjoyed the music, but it was played so loud that I couldn't even hear the person in front of me. The food was okay, but not really worth the trip down to the LES when there are better Filipino/Malaysian places in the city. The Malaysian fried chicken was disappointingly soggy -- I would have rather eaten BonChon or even a piece of Jollibee chicken. At least they're crunchy! The other dishes we had were just decent. I feel also like the staff was *too* attentive. At least 3 different people came over to check to see if I was finished with my meal like 3 different times each. It was extremely distracting and intrusive. If I were finished with my meal, I wouldn't be in the middle of putting food into my mouth.
The music was kind of loud, which also makes the diners kind of loud, but the food was great and we enjoyed it very much.
