vegan-friendly Thai restaurant
Rice Avenue offers vegan appetizers, soups, salads, and entrees, including noodle and rice dishes. You can get dishes made with just vegetables, or with tofu or mock duck. They have curries, glass noodles, basil fried rice, and Thai cashew nut entrees, among many others.
Most entrees are around $8-10, but they offer $6 lunch specials from 11:30am-3:30pm, including an entree and an appetizer.
Delivery is available but there is a $10 minimum.

This place has a great variety of vegan options. The menu lists what sauce and spices come with the dish, in addition to rice or noodles, then you add veggies, tofu, soy duck, meat, whatever. I like this set up because you're not charged more for getting a veggie option and you have a lot of choices.
I got the soy duck spicy green curry and it was pretty good. There was a lot of soy duck in the dish and I actually wished there were more veggies in it. The dish had really good flavor and a good level of spice. It came with a choice of appetizer and I chose the spring roll, which was great. The waiter said a couple of the other appetizers were vegan but I can't recall which.
My favorite thing about this restaurant was that it has lunch specials ALL week, even on the weekend. My friend in Queens told me that this practice isn't totally uncommon in Queens, but I've never seen lunch specials in Manhattan or Brooklyn (or most other cities for that matter), outside of the usual Monday-Friday. I stopped in at 11:30am on a Sunday morn (on my way to a Mets game, woohoo!) and got a delicious meal for only $6.95. I was the only one in the restaurant, which was clean and pretty, and had a really nice server. I'd definitely return.
