Somtum Der Red Hook


[COVID-19 UPDATE: See below for the nice backyard setup at Somtum Der's newer location, a comfortable deck where they can serve about six groups of people at a time. Tables are spaced very well and staff is acting very safely. Wear your mask.]

Somtum Der comes with a well-established reputation for delicious food from the Isaan region of Thailand, with a focus on brilliantly prepared fresh som tum. Their first location on Avenue A in the East Village was possibly the first place in the city that served excellent Thai food outside of Elmhurst, a trend that has continued throughout a few parts of the city since.

Their new location on Red Hook's main drag continues the theme of being located in a place you might now expect (although two short-lived restaurants briefly disproved that), and also the tradition of cooking excellent food. Conveniently for 2020, they also have a nice backyard.

Heat levels are up, all the right ingredients are on point, and so far everything seems just right. For more please read our 2013 review of the original location:
