Yes, it's a bad pun, but the food at Land is nothing short of spectacular. I have to say, it's the best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand (and yes, I've been there). The food it authentic, and took me back to my days on Khao San Road. That reference is probably lost on you if haven't been to Thailand, but just take it from a ""Thai food snob"" as I've been called (really, I'm not - I just like good Thai food). Anyhow, if there's a drawback to Land, it's that the place is very small, they don't take reservations, and you might have to wait a bit. Having said that, they do take your number down and call you (allowing you to walk around and check out all the other UWS options), and the decor is actually quite nice. If you want amazingly authentic Thai food, with nice ambiance at a very affordable price, then stake your claim to Land...
Pros: Great food, nice ambiance, very affordable
Cons: No reservations, limited seating.
