What a nice surprise: a GREAT restaurant tucked into a strip-mall? Nice ambiance, great service (thanks, Courtney!), and wonderful food! Good values on Tues. & Wed. nights.

We arrived without reservations on Saturday night, waited for a group to leave because the house was full and now we know why it was packed! From the autumn menu we had the Thai soup (perfectly spiced), the mushroom ravioli (wonderfully earthy) followed by the pumpkin torte. The staff was friendly & attentive and it was great to actually see the owner and chef greet each table! It was a special evening for 2 midwesterners in New York. Highly recommend that if are in the area, go out of your way to eat there! Don't let the fact that it is in a strip mall deter you.

This guy can COOK! Imaginative, varied dishes, delicious and beautiful. A neighborhood restaurant that you need a reservation for on a Tuesday night. Excellent food, Excellent service, fair prices. This is 1st class food done to perfection. You will not be disappointed.

There aren't many places left in good old EG so to be ranked no 1 isn't saying much.

Went here based on a friends recommendation. I no longer trust my friends recommendations.

Food was average at best, WAY over priced. Everyone there wants to act like this is a prestigious members only club.

It's a restaurant in a run down shopping plaza... Enough said.
