I see all of these wonderful reviews and wonder what went wrong all of a sudden. Yes, our server was friendly enough, but he never brought any bread (even after he offered it!) I had to keep him from doing the quick "everything good? Good!" and zipping off so I could get a refill on my drink that had sat empty all through my meal. They at first were rushing us and then when it was clear the place wasn't all that busy for the night, proceeded to ignore us with half-eaten plates of food in front of us. Why were they half eaten? Because the food was subpar. The "shrimp dim sum" was the same kind that you buy from the frozen section of your supermarket. Little flavor and a texture like chewing gum. My friend ordered the calamari, and though it was passable enough, I think I've also seen that exact kind in the frozen section. I ordered what was the full English breakfast and for my $14 I was treated to chewy overcooked eggs, a burned portobello mushroom top, pasty potato cakes, undercooked baked beans and sausage and bacon that were both cold and hard. It was a mystery how this happened as the food came quickly.

We had dinner there on a Friday night while visiting New York for the first time, and our first impression of this restaurant was WOW! The monkfish and saffron rice was just amazing, and the wine selections are wonderful. The atmosphere was intimate and quaint, and the service and ambiance were above average. The chef is Thai, and the food had a touch of Thai cuisine, which makes it unique and refreshing.

We went here after a play, on a busy night (St. Patrick's Day). We were seated immediately by a polite, friendly head waiter. The meal was excellent: oysters (more than the promised dozen, as they were slightly small) chicken and duck as entrees. Delicious! Service was gracious and attentive- not rushed , but we didn't wait. At the end of the meal, despite a growing crowd, we were encouraged to relax over coffee. We'll go back.

Four of us went to Angus for the Sunday Brunch, and came away very impressed. One would expect a restaurant in the middle of the theater district (it's next door to The Producers) to be at best mediocre, but this was terrific. Two of us ordered steak & eggs, which came with an 8-10 oz. steak and two eggs, delicious sauted spinach and a slightly soggy pancake of hash browns....a great value at $14.00. The ladies each had the fritatta and finished every bite, declaring it excellent. The bloody mary was tangy and tasty, and the desserts were out of this world. Service was friendly and efficient. We will go back.

Steak- Perfectly well done, moist, tasty! Garlic mash potatoes- Creamy, splendid, wonderful. Bourbon baked beans- Right on. There's little more to say. The food was great!!

Our party of 4 tried Angus McIndoe in desperation after we were late for a reservation at another restaurant. It turned out to be a splendid accident. First, they squeezed us in on a busy Saturday night. Second, the food was terrific at a resaonable price. Members of our group had roast duck, penne with sweet sausage and a cheeseburger (perfectly medium rare), and all were well done. It was our best meal in five days in New York, in which we ate at nothing but Zagat-rated restaurants.
