The “rock” in Thai Rock is not just a reference to the restaurant’s location in the beachside Rockaways, but a nod to the live music that takes over after the sun dips down. Inside, you’ll find tightly packed wooden tables and comfortable high-backed chairs, but the large uncovered patio overlooking the bay is certainly the place to be come summer. The menu covers the usual standards-think pad Thai, curries and stir-fries-as well as a few Northern specialties, with aplomb. Don't miss the plump and tender dumplings stuffed with crunchy turnips, peanuts and fragrant garlic; or the refreshing chicken larb gai laced with a bright and zesty sauce enriched with mint and scallions. Delicious and savory, the Issan sausage is a staple for suitable reason.
