Visited here twice for breakfast and had the New York Slam (I think thats what it was called). It had eggs, bacon, potatoes, and pancakes and was very tasty. I also enjoyed the $1 unlimited tea. Staff were attentive and friendly. However, we came for dinner one night and wasn't as impressed. I had... read more

Friday evening, we were seated straight away. All seemed fine. Then after over 15 minutes no one had been to our table to even ask if we wanted drinks whilst deciding on food. When in fact we were ready to order both & had closed our menus looking hopefully at the passing staff who never bothered to acknowledge our table... More

We sat in the bar area as the actually dining area had no space. The only negative I had was that - we were give the food with no cutlery and no napkins - same as the neighbouring table. Also the table next to us left as we were seated. After we had finished eating their table had still not... More

Very disappointed with our dining experience here. We arrived late evening, around 2230hrs for dinner and it was as if the staff were ready to change shifts and leave. Food was okay. No one came to the table to check on us. Not what we are used to from this chain of eateries.

This is excellent food at a good price...great staff and variety for all I had breakfast twice...great...but the oil was a bit too hot and the eggs formed a bit of rind which I don't like...as for lightly cooked.

I have been there before, and I regret my return. Few words: Extremely dirty, quality of meat, terrible. The only reasonable thing is the service. Toilets, are dirty as well, and over priced for what you get.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
