Topaz Restaurant Review

: Situated next to Carnegie Hall, this family-run Thai eatery is a quiet gem. Don't let the nautical décor left over from its predecessor throw you. Topaz' gentle staff will tailor its wide-ranging menu of aromatic soups, satays, curries and entrées to suit your heat preferences. Standout starters include shrimp marinated in Thai herbs and wrapped with bacon, then served with a sweet chili sauce. Main courses include noodle dishes, curries, fish dishes and meaty main courses like the half chicken marinated in garlic sauce and then grilled and served with a traditional sauce.
