We have brilliant Asian food in Sydney, so we were in two minds trying this venue. The waitstaff swayed us, so 7 of us piled in. The food was world class. Myriad, layered Asian (Thai, Malay) spices and herbs woven throughout all the dishes. Fast, efficient service and all courses were delicious. Washed down amiably by 3 different white wines,... More

I have come here lunch time with a group of friends. I have to advise against getting the lunch box, which is what all my friends got. For paying a bit extra and ordering things separately I seemed to have eaten much more. The "Tom yum" soup was really nice. I ordered the chicken version, but they had a vegetable... More

The food was some of the tastiest we have ever had. Angel made us feel very welcome and we would have no hesitation in recommending... More

Energetic staff and fast service make this a great eatery if you're in the area peckish for something Asian. The food is hot, fresh and genuine, and it's reasonably priced by NYC standards. It's a good eat.

We arrived just before the happy hour ended. The prices for food and drinks were more than reasonable then! Mine was extremely spicy - but it was delicious. Good and fast service

We visited just for a quick drink at happy hour and loved it. The only problem was we weren't hungry enough for food! The service was great- attentive and very friendly. $7 happy hour cocktails - what more can you ask for?

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
