Consistently Good

This is my 5th visit and each time the food is hot and delicious. Ideal pre-theatre. No rez needed and uber-quick service if you are running late to a show. Great back room for groups. We saw an all-Asian cast dining there after a show we saw one time and I often see many Asian diners as it is... read more

I ate here with some friends who live in Manhattan. It's a favorite restaurant of theirs. I really enjoyed it, though I had no idea what to order. Thankfully they ordered for us: lemongrass chicken, mango chicken, and shrimp pad thai (which was AWESOME). Staff was friendly and service was great!

I probably wouldn't go here again if I was ever in New York again. It felt like the staff were watching us the entire time. But the portions were huge and value for money.

Doesn't look great from the outside but it's a hidden gem in NYC. Amazing food and great service. Lots of variety to choose from. The Hot and Sour soup is fresh and delicious, lots of entree options for anybody including great vegetarian options.

We really enjoyed the food - I had Thai Pad. Good food and lots of it. Service was excellent and we thought the prices were great especially since there was so much food and it was so good! Can't go wrong here!

My girlfriend a I was here the other night for dinner as the restaurant looked cozy and was close to our hotel. Great atmosphere and the staff was warm and welcoming. Not much people I the restaurant on that evening so the food came quick and fresh. Large portions and great taste. Would have been a four star rating it... More

This restaurant is located on the ground level of Best Western President Hotel. The restaurant is small and cozy. We ordered the Spicy and Tasty chicken, Chicken and Vegetable noodles, beef pho and crispy spring rolls. Everything was good, except for the chicken noodles as the serving is too much (I'm an average Asian girl). The serving would be nice... More

Upon arriving at the Best Western President's hotel at 10pm where I was spending the night after an international trip, I wasn't hopeful of finding a healthy way to fill my tummy. LO and behold ,adjacent to the hotel was this gem of a restaurant. I was the only customer for most of the time, but they treated me warmly... More

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.
