How is the Kra Prao Moo Krob lunch special the most liked thing on this menu?? It was nasty. Had like 6 tiny pieces of pork over a massive bed of rice, and half of those were all fat/inedible.
The noodle lunch specials from here are great but you can't really mess those up. Steering clear of anything pork from here from now on...

Good fast and tasty delivery with a decent price for lunch

Hubby and I ordered lunch from Larb Ubol yesterday, 9/4/14, and it was soooo good!! Had the crispy pork over rice (kao moo krob), stir fried flat rice noodles with bell pepper and egg (pad kee mao) with pork, and papaya salad (som tum) with avocado and tomato. The rice was even good, not dry and hard like it often is. All of the ingredients seemed high quality and freshly prepared and the flavors were spot on! Beware, though: we ordered the papaya salad at level 3 for spiciness and it was too hot for me. My hubby can take a lot more heat than I, and it was almost too much for him; his nose was running like crazy so he was sniffling and tearing up all through lunch. The flavors were great, so I would get it again, but at a level 1 next time. The other 2 dishes were very mild—I don't think they're intended to be spicy—and no spiciness level was offered for them. Maybe that's because they're lunch specials, I'll have to check if that's the case for entree portions. This will be our new go-to Thai place, so I hope they stay consistently good! So many places are good once or twice and disappointing ever after :(

This used to be one of my favorite places to go to and order from for lunch. But, the last couple of times, the service has been extremely slow, and the food has not been good. I don't know if they are under new management or what, but I will not be ordering from them anymore.

Okay. I had previously given them a 1* in my haste. It was going on 2 hours since I ordered. I was frustrated and thought they would fail. Even after calling them and reiterating where my building was. It wasn't rocket science, literally only building on the block with one entrance, and they told me delivery guy couldn't find it, but would send him back out. Well that took another 40 minutes in that time I'd written them off. However eventually the food arrived hot and my drink with fresh ice, I suppose they made a fresh order after the first failed delivery. And the pad see ew I had was very good. So long story short I guess they had a simple delivery error and attempted to amend. Still took 2 hours for my food to arrive though.

I love this place. But I did order a dinner entree and it cost extra for rice which I find pretty awful. Other than that -great place.

Delicious food. It's right by my apartment so it's very convenient for me to get somethign tasty after work. Larb Ubol has become my go to Thai place with its authentic cuisine and it's ability to consistantly sate my craving for Thai (which is every meal). Love the somewhat recent addition to the neighborhood and I will continue to grab grub here whenever I can.

I ordered the Kra Prao lunch special over rice and received a confirmation at 12:33PM with a delivery time of 30-45 minutes. At 1:30 I called and was told the my order was on the way. I called 15 minutes later and was told the delivery person 'broke' the food, that it was dropped. I finally received a call at 2:13PM and was told the food was on my floor. The food itself was very bland with 95% white rice, a shriveled basil leaf or two and poor quality pork mince meat. It also came with a small iceberg/'papaya' salad that was bland. Very disappointed after reading such positive reviews on Yelp and Seamless. Luckily there are many other Thai options in the area.

This place is the best: fast and delicious. It's not cookie-cutter Thai food, so it's best to steer away from the really familiar things (pad thai, drunken noodles). But the less familiar items are consistently well prepared and full of spicy and tart flavor.
I love the Kra Prao Moo Krob Over Rice Lunch Special, which is crispy bits of pork (Warning to calorie counters: there is fat in there -- delicious, delicious fat!). I also think the papaya salads and meaty larb salads are great choices -- you might want a side of rice to go with those. The sticky rice would be a good choice.
The Gang Om Soup was a suggestion from the NYTimes review of this place, and it was excellent.
A word about the spice levels: they are no joke. I love spicy Mexican foods, and spicy Szechuan is a favorite. But the Thai spices here can be too much for me. I leave the spice level at 1, which provides plenty of punch. At first I ordered spice level 3 because I figured I wanted the average spiciness, and that turned out to be so heavy on the chilies that I couldn't finish the dish. But I have discovered that leaving it at level 1 is best for me.

They deliver at lightening speed if you live in the Hell's Kitchen area. They take special directions very well - I always ask for no palm sugar/syrup in my papaya salad, and it always comes nice and sour, just the way I like it.
Posted 2 years ago by Cleo v.
Fresh and spicy Larb Ubol's salads are my favorite, especially the papaya salad (the avocado papaya salad is the most straightforward and has the fullest taste of green papaya). The Larb is also very good, although I do wish they'd add more herbs and salad for texture and crunch.

Came in less than 10 minutes (disclaimer: I do work two blocks away but still). I had the Pad Kee Mao and the spice level was right. This is real Thai food. I have been looking for an authentic place and found it finally. I had no problems with the rice like other reviewers, it was a small carton but filled to the top. Can't wait to order again.

The food is stunning. Hole in the wall type place and prices, yet it's always packed in the evenings and weekend so I gave it a try. Whether dining in or ordering delivery, tip top Thai food. Generally all on the spicy side fyi
Posted 2 years ago by Miley N.
very good food, if you ask for spicy you get spicy, fast, friendly delivery. Reliability can be a problem - I've gotten the wrong order on a couple of occasions, but each time it was good anyway, so I just ate it. Hoping to have time to go there soon for a full meal.

Really poor. This is my first review on seamless and I felt I had to say something. I ordered the minced pork and grilled beef. Pork tasted weird. Beef was slimy and fatty. The "salad" was just lettuce leaves and ends. I would never order from here again. Perhaps I was unlucky as many other gd reviews and it turned up quickly but just not a good experience.

Decided to try this place (usually order from Aceluck or Qi)...Fast delivery in cold weather. Bad food. Will not order from L.U. again.

This is a great restaurant, food is good and different to most commercial Thai places. The service is excellent. the only crticism anyone might have is the decor which is a little home made but it doesn't detract in my mind from what they do well. Good food, done quickly, with a smile

Fried chicken with ginger rice lunch special was pretty tasty. I also tried one of their papaya salad and got spice level 2 and it was still too spicy for me and I love spicy food. I'll go to level 1 next time. Food is delicious and not your average run of the mill thai.

Pad Thai was pretty bland, and not fresh tasting (no lime wedge or fresh sprouts like at other spots). May order again, but in the future will stick to some of their specialties.

Living in Hells Kitchen there's a lot of food...but a lot of it is straight up bad. This is my go-to for SE Asian food now. The flavors are really great and I always end up eating too much because it's so tasty!

I've just ordered their Pad Thai for the 6th time in 4 days. I'm not kidding. Texture is perfect. For "special requests" I ask now for "chicken and shrimp" and they charge me an extra $2. Well worth it. And I ask for "spicy" because their default is really really mild.

Great Pad Thai!
Posted 3 years ago by bonnie b.
I initially gave this place 5 stars. Flavor-wise it's fantastic, very authentic, and SPICY!. I noticed their prices are slightly higher and their portions are a little smaller than their competition but that didn't bother me too much...initially.
Unfortunately, it's getting worse. On my recent order, the soup containers were half-full. And the rice containers (which they charge $3 for whereas most places throw it in for free) were also mostly empty. I'm all about portion control, but if you're selling half-full rice containers for $3, that's just cheap.
I really hope they wise up and become a little less frugal. I'll order from them once or twice more to see and bump my review back up if they change. Otherwise, it's back to the other places.

I ordered the chef' duck special and asked for it to be on the mild side spice-wise. First, the dish came without any of the promised vegetables--no eggplant, no anything. Second, it was indelibly spicy. Will not order from here again,

Best thai food in midtown!
I loved pad thai and pad see ew.
Posted 3 years ago by Janet C.
I ordered the crispy pork with basil over rice and the chicken Pad Thai. Over all, the crispy pork dish was a huge disappointment. The portion was small. There was hardly any basil or sauce. And the pork was overcooked and therefore dry and hard. The Cantonese fried pork is MUCH MUCH better than this. I don't understand why people are ecstatic over their crispy pork. The Pad Thai was not good as well. I've tried Pad Thai all over midtown and this one was the worst. Mooshy noodles, no lime, lots of bean sprouts, sorry, not authentic. I would never order from here again.

An unfortunate experience which has drastically changed my otherwise exceptional view of Larb Ubol. To start, my to go order was missing the Chicken Larb. I was looking forward to it but nothing I would go out of my way to call and complain about. Moving onto the Kra Prao Moo Krob Over Rice, if you can call it that. I've ordered this dish from here on other occasions and it was been spectacular. Not this time. I had a hard time telling the difference between the pork and the rice as they both maintained the same consistency. The pork was soggy and flavorless while the rice more so resembled rice pudding. If you can't cook white rice, get the hell out of the kitchen. I have not had a worse lunch in recent memory than the food they tried passing off as edible.
