excellent food with limited atmosphere

If you want an excellent meal and any kind of ambiance is not important, this is the place. Wonderful food, lovely staff and reasonable prices. This establishment has been around for years and I am glad.

This is a local restaurant in a neighborhood. Parking during dinner is across the street in a parking lot or on-street. Wait staff are very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is "homey", nothing ostentatious. But the food makes up for it. There is a wonderful choice of appetizers....the best french onion soup. Most food entrees have an asian flair. Thai/French/American...good... More

Nais used to be laid out in such a way that, every time the door opened, the place became freezing cold. They've fixed that. That was a major issue. This is still a dependable place. It won't send you into paroxysms of delight, but you won't be sorry you ate here. And it won't set you back a paycheck either.... More

Nais Cuisine is a store front restaurant on a side street in Havertown. It is surprisingly larger than it appears from the outside. Finding parking could be a problem. There is a open parking lot across from the restaurant, but was full when we went at about 6:30. We had to park on Darby Road and walk a short distance.... More

Another jem in Havertown. I sometimes forget about this place. No idea why. The food has always been delicious. It's a BYOB and I have never been disappointed. I just have to stop in more often. Only set back it's next to the firehouse, and I have been there once when a fire call came in. It was ungodly loud... More

We live nearby, and have been going here for many years. This restaurant offers excellent value for money.As a BYOB place, you avoid the expensive drink prices common in Pennsylvania restaurants, because of high liquor taxes. You can't go wrong with the smoked trout mousse, cream of mushroom soup, or the filet mignon. The atmosphere is neo grim, but there... More

We stopped by for a respite Friday nite, and were not dissatisfied! The rainbow trout was excellent. The pear dessert, as usual, was superb. Music and candlelight atmosphere was delightful! Will return !

This Havertown institution advertises "French cuisine with an Asian flair". What we experienced was more like "Thai Diner". Our overpriced appetizers ($9) were immersed in sauces that completely drowned out any flavors. The duck entrees were well cooked and well priced, but again the sauces were overpowering and excessive. Our desserts were cheap ($5), but disappointing. None are made in... More

This restaurant is supposed to be French and thaï fusion. This is more a fusion between bad and foul. The meat smelled foul in the lamb curry and my stomach is sick for having tried it. Ravioli appetizers were swimming in an ugly sauce. The duck was dried and too sweet. Sorry for the friends who brought us there but... More
