bad food, expensive, snotty staff, bad/reallllllly slow service.
will never go there again. i have no idea why we were told to go there.
this is my favorite place to eat in ny.
great food, service (a waiter even went to check what cd was playing and tell me), atmosphere, and prices.
their tom yum and coconut tofu soups are delicious (haven't had a chance to try the others, yet), as was their "duck basil" and thai suki.
their thai iced tea was delicious, too.
and like a previous reviewer said, their bathroom is amazing. i think i found enlightenment, while washing my hands.
i used to love going here, until i realized that every time i ate there, i felt crappy afterwards. the buffet does have a good food selection, and the sushi (when they had it) was great. but everything seemed really, really greasy; and we'd feel full/not good very quickly.
i haven't been there since we realized that eating there = not feeling well, and i probably won't be back.
my recommendation is to eat a lot of the sushi. it was pretty damn good, and i doubt that it would be grease-heavy.
in response to the other poster, i don't believe they have any vegan desserts.
the soy cheese is NOT vegan. some of the waiters/waitresses will say that it's vegan, though. not sure if it's because they're stupid/ignorant, or if they're just bitchy.
some of them are nice and upfront about it, though.
food's decent, but on the expensive side. i'd rather go to mad mex's, but the seitan tacos/fajitas at adobe are pretty good.
tofu hoagie was pretty tasty, and great for the price. this isn't a restaurant/sandwich shop, but a small deli/asian grocer.
they carry nice odds-and-ends, like fresh tofu and soy cream.
definitely worth stopping in, when in the area.
each time i've eaten there, i've felt sick.
and with govinda's down the street, i can't comprehend how this place still gets good business.
decent prices, pretty damn good sandwiches, great deserts (ice cream and vegan treats).
the chicken cheese steak (i usally sub the green peppers with broccoli), pepper steak, sabji wraps, and chicken salad sandwiches are all very good. in fact, i like them so much that i haven't explored the rest of the menu.
good place to meet up with some friends before/after plans.
food ranges from relatively ok to good, but the portions are incredibly small and the cost is incredibly high. after eating there (entree and dessert), i realized i was still hungry and went straight to another restaurant and loaded up on more food. sad, but true.
the waitress we had seemed to have a bit of attitude, too. which seems odd since she did virtually no work (there are very few tables there and i think we were her only table) and made a sizable tip (see high-priced food).
the deserts seem to be a better purchase than the entrees/appetizers (more bang for buck), but i probably won't go there again.
go to new harmony, instead
no idea how this is listed as average-priced, the food is soooo cheap.
fast food falafel, with a salad bar. excellent for the price.
tons of food options, helpful staff, delicious food, amazing service, and very well priced.
they also have monthly-ish all you can eat buffets, which are awesome; and a great way to try new dishes.
you can't go wrong with any of the "special dinners" (spring roll, entree, bowl of soup for $12). both the hot & sour and wonton soups are amazing (as are the others), and all of the listed special dinner entrees are nothing short of delicious.
if you're not sure what to get, the staff is very helpful in steering you in the right direction.
IMO, this is the best restaurant around, period.
