Wave vs Elephant Thai food Astoria

Posted on February 1, 2008. Filed under: Astoria, Thai |

Wave Thai (21-37 31st St 718-777-6789) Ditmars N/W
Elephant Thai (21-09 31st St 718-204-8827)

Opening two thai restaurants within 10 feet of each other normally wouldn’t prove to be a profitable or wise business venture, but somehow- these two thai restaurants on the lower end of 31st street (near 21st ave) make it work and here’s why: although they both serve Thai cuisine, they are both very different experiences, Wave Thai is a dimly lit and trendy space serving gourmet thai food at not-quite-manhattan prices. The ambiance is quasi romantic, making equally suitable for a date spot as well as a place to bring friends. The service is attentive and friendly, offering free delivery too. The food is a mixture of traditional and gourmet thai dishes that are decoratively arranged on your plate and taste as good as they look. In comparison Thai Elephant is an entirely different animal. This restaurant is more casual with a family friendly atmosphere as well as family friendly prices. Thai Elephant is a great place to get cheap eats on a weekend lunch, weeknight dinner or delivery. If you have room for dessert, or even if you don’t, order the fried bananas sprinkled with powdered sugar and drizzled with honey. These sticky treats are well worth the walk to the far end of 31st St.
