Uncle Boons Sister is the takeout version of Uncle Boons (one of our favorite Thai restaurants in NYC), and it’s in the space that used to be Mr. Donahue’s. The menu here is smaller than the one at Uncle Boons, however, and most things are under $15. They do stuff like fried chicken laarb, pork shank over rice, and a Thai-style hot dog covered in papaya salad - and, if you need a quick lunch or dinner in Nolita, this is an excellent option. There are a few tables inside where you can hang out and eat, although the space is tiny, and you shouldn’t count on finding a seat.
Uncle Boons Sister is permanently closed.
