This is a buffet restaurant with a large choice of options. It has a large salad bar for the health conscious but you would be better looking at the cooked food for an authentic taste of soul food. It is very good value as you...More

Yes, lovely food. But please do skip the usual "salad bar" offers (and the jelly dessert) and go straight to the end of the self-service rack. Pork's feet (oui, Monsieur, pieds de porc!) with collard greens. That was a hit.

This place is great! Great soul food and comfort food... salad bar was pretty decent too. The selection and variety is pretty abundant... and prices are reasonable (by the pound). I'll definitely be back during my next trip to NYC.

The meal was average and they charge by the pound. My plate came to $10 and I was not satisfied. There was no ox tails or lamb or goat or red snapper. And the dessert was limited. No peach cobbler or red velvet cake. :(

It was Sunday afternoon and I was walking down 125th St looking for something to eat when I stumbled upon Mannas. As soon as I walked in I knew I had hit the jackpot! There was a huge buffet that had some of everything. Fresh...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
