For Unique and Flavorful Thai You Can’t Find Anywhere Else in the Neighborhood

Lil Chef Mama (27 Cliff Street) might have a modest-looking storefront to passersby, but don’t let looks fool you: this neighborhood newcomer offers diners a cozy space that is enhanced by scrumptious Thai cuisine.

We sampled their lunch menu and were delighted by every dish. If you’re a tried and true fan of Thai food, you’ll love their Pad Thai and Paw See Ew. If you’re looking to expand your palate, order one of Mama’s Specials. From deep-fried squid (Pla Mu Pad Tua) to lightly breaded frog legs (Ka Kob), you’ll have your pick of unique and flavorful dishes you can’t find anywhere else in the neighborhood. 

Whether you order takeout or dine-in, we do suggest that you give the kitchen 25 minutes to prepare your fresh to order meal. In other words, don’t rush the experience if you dine in.
