My friend brought me to this place during a recent trip to NYC. For starters the place is larger compared to most NYC restaurants and not busy. It is the true definition of a mom & pops store. No need for reservations. We had the ceviche (delicious.com) and fried rice with chicken (portion large enough to share). Everything was great however there are a few things that kept this place from receiving 5 stars from me. 1. Older style decor, 2. No alcoholic drinks, 3. You must ask for ice in your water.
