I had read up before our trip and this was on my list of 'safe bets'!!
It was just as I'd read, good food, friendly fast service and good value! Lovely and helpful server who didn't ridicule my ignorance of certain dishes! Not a huge variety of options; keeping it simple, but tasty food all the same. It's a good people watching place and nicely situated around the Chinatown/Little Italy area if you're on your way back uptown. It was quiet when we arrived, I wouldn't like to have been there at a busy time as its not very big inside! There are a few 'Grey Dog' venues in Manhattan so I'm guessing the service is a standard!
