Sky Thai is a Thai restaurant very close to the Paulus Hook Ferry Terminal in Exchange Place / Jersey City, New Jersey. It’s a restaurant to get a quick lunch for people working in the Exchange Place area. It’s best to go to Sky Thai as close to noon as possible to avoid a wait (not sure if they take reservations) or well after 1.30 PM. The interior of Sky Thai is very brightly colored with shades of orange and purple. I suppose the choice of colors for Sky Thai’s interior was very intentional by someone who likes the intensity of the color combination. There is outdoor seating as well for when the weather is good.
At Sky Thai, you can get a soup or a salad and a main course at lunch time (can’t remember the price, except that it seemed quite reasonable). The food at Sky Thai is somewhat middle-of-the-road, it’s not bad and it’s not the best either. I would go there again only if I am short on time and want to meet someone who lives / works there.
The iced Lychee green tea was nice – had the intensity of green tea and the sweetness from the lychee juice and lychee. The salad was very refreshing – had a nice sweet and tangy peanut, soy dressing. The tofu in cashew sauce was disappointing – the tofu was bland, and too chewy, the sauce was bland and flavorless despite the chili sauce and there were very few vegetables in the sauce. My friend was happy with her soup and noodles (can’t remember which one she had). If I go back to Sky Thai, it will be to try out their curries (Tilapia basil), or the Chef’s recommendations.
