    Surprise!

    Great food! Very great place for a quiet meal and thoughtfully prepared dishes, such as red snapper with beans, steamed shrimp dumplings, nice wine and sticky rice for dessert. Eat in the back yard!

    Quaint

    good food at fair prices if you like Asian food. the waiters are very attentive. In the warm weather you get to sit in their lovely garden, or inside where it's a bit tight but ok.

    Miserably sub-par

    I'm pretty easy to satisfy when it comes to eating out, but man did this place fall on it's face. I specifically asked that my curry soup be prepared extra-spicy; it was about as spicy as day-old dishwater. The other dish (some sort of fish) at the table was just as bland. If you are into paying 2X as much for Malaysian food as you would in any number of places in Chinatown of vastly superior quality, this is your joint. The back yard IS romantic, but can't make up for the lacking in food and value.

    Fantastic

    The place is cozy and a lovely find. One of many of it's appealing points is that the staff is friendly and the atmosphere is casual and creative. I had the snapper that was served with this amazing coconut lime sauce onions and stringbeans. IT was AMAZING! It was my first time there but I can't wait to go back.

    cozy & cramped & cute OH MY!

    stuff yourself and your date into this adorable little spot and the impending winter cold is left out the door and entirely forgotten. It's warm inside, filled with a rainbow of lanterns, flowers and painted tables.. And steaming ceramic pots of curry and Asian-style paella. I went for the chrysanthemum greens adorned with figs and pears.. far from disappointing! In fact, the red curry with beef and veggies was one of the best I'd had in a very long time. It's the kind of place that will raise your spirits when the world seems to be lacking color.

    Disappointed by delivery!

    I live in the neighborhood and typically enjoy the food (and the value) at Cafe Asean. I'm always recommending it to people! But I ordered delivery from there last night (for the first time) and found it very disappointing! The tofu and vegetable curry dish I ordered ($14) had only a few vegetables and only THREE pieces of tofu. I'm shocked that they'd consider that an entree (and charge an entree price). If I give Cafe Asean another try, it certainly won't be delivery.

    Fabulous!

    This place has remained eternally true to its Asean roots, but wished it offered some Filipino cuisine as well. The ambience and esoteric music is great and calming, with the frendliest waitstaff you would find in Manhattan. Simply, "De-li-cioussss!"
