“Our favourite small groovy hangout. Super tasty, fresh and healthy!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We just happen to be lucky enough to live basically across the street from this little gem. Dave, the owner and chef is really up on Asian, Vietnamese cuisine and local healthy produce. Fresh, fresh fresh! The place reminds me of a tiny brownstone restaurant which could as well be in Brooklyn. And we like the long communal table where you can meet new people or run into your friends. The staff is young, hip, tattooed and super friendly. If you can get oysters, go for it!!! The clams are amazing, as are all the noodle dishes....the crab cakes are the best in the world. For Valentines dinner we had skate and some amazing desert with caramel and coffee....major yum! Almost afraid of recommending this place, because soon we won't be able to get a table. Only thing......hope they start taking cards soon....cash only can be a drag.

“Great noodles”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Started off with great pork belly buns. Pork was juicy and while the buns weren't warmed they still had fresh taste and texture. My wife had the pork ramen which had great noodles and a delicious broth. I had the Thai noodles which I think are their interpretation of pad thai which was excellent. We got there early -- they open for dinner at 5pm and we got there not too long after that -- to make sure we didn't have a tough time getting seating with our 2-year old. The place isn't really child friendly (a little cramped and they don't have high chairs or booster seats) but the wait staff and other patrons didn't seem to mind when our boy acted the way 2-year olds do in public. Note that they only take cash and don't offer sodas or juices. But have a good selection of Tenren tea and also serve beer and wine.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I have eaten here several times and the food is fresh, tasty, well prepared and leaves you feeling well nourished. However, I do rank it only 'very good' because it looks like a 'hole in the wall' and the seating is not very comfortable, especially in the heat of the summer, when the air conditioning works very hard and still does not do the job.

I like that the menu changes often and no matter what I have bought, I have been very happy. The service is good and polite, the prices reasonable for what you are getting.

“A fantastic addition to Hudson's culinary landscape!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Having lived in Hudson for almost 10 years we've enjoyed watching the city's cadre of restaurants grow and enjoyed dining in them even more. HFS is the latest dining venue to join the ranks of the Hudson Valley's dining capital, and brings with it a much needed ethnic cuisine.

A fusion of Vietnamese and Thai cooking, HFS's menu offers diners a range of fresh, delicious and light courses using almost exclusively local ingredients. The night we dined at HFS our two appetizers (Lettuce Cups and Crab Cakes) were both wonderful and so different from each other: the lettuce cups were light, crisp and fresh, the crab cakes were meaty, flavorful with just the right amount of heat. Our entrees consisted of Spicy Chicken with Noodles and Pork Meatballs with Rice Vermicelli. Again, both outstanding - fresh and delicious with just the right balance of flavors. Portion sizes are perfect.

The restaurant offers a limited selection of wines and beer that really match the cuisine quite well. The space itself is small, so you have to get there early. We were lucky to get the last table when we walked in, but the turnover seemed fairly brisk, so waiting time wasn't long at all.

Overall Hudson Food Studio is a welcome addition to our city and will be a regular stop on our dining rounds.
