    Nice in summer

    The space out back is worth visiting; the food is usually quite good. Service, however, can be abrupt and even latently hostile-- a little jarring in a setting that can only be described as humble.

    Most Flavorful Meal I've had in NYC

    This place is awesome! Wonderful menu selections, delicious apps and entrees for great prices. Definitely call ahead for reservations - the place is tiny! Would not recommend it for a large party. You are missing out if you do not try this place!

    Pleasant scene, wonderful food

    This place is well worth a try. The food is fresh, delicious, and quite original. You'll find things here that don't show up on every menu. The setting is pleasant, clean and unpretentious. The service is polite and timely. And at such reasonable prices, it's really one of the best values in the area. Topped, perhaps, only by Grey's Papaya down the street.. Been there a few times, always try different things, never found a dish that was a clinker. Check it out.

    Half Good, Half Bad

    My dining partner and I were seated after only five minutes even though we didn't have a reservation. I had a great plum wine, which I luckily ordered because our water was sort of warm and we HOPE that was lime in it because if not, we drank dirty water! Our appetizer, the calamari, was excellent, so I had very high hopes for the main course. While we were waiting for the main course, the table next to us got the wrong food and instead of bringing out the right dish, the waiter brought back over the menu to dispute the customer (who had eaten there before!) and then blamed the cooks in the back! My dining partner liked his meal, but I only liked the tofu and shrimp in my noodles - - my noodles had some weird after-taste. We decided to skip dessert. Oh yeah, and they only take cash! I don't recall seeing that printed on our menu. The restaurant itself was really pretty, but my "chair" (really a bench) was not quite adequate.

    Favorite for years

    I was introduced to this restaurant in 1998 and it is still one of my favorites. I've never had a problem with service and anytime a friend visits from out of town, this is the place I take them (and they've also given it great reviews and reminisce every now and again about how great the food was 'at that restaurant'). I've ordered take out and it was ready to go when I got there. Don't skip this one. It's beautiful on the inside and the garden IS really nice in the summer.

    Unlike PLAINAWFUL's review, I've only had positive experiences here. the food is delicious and an extremely good value, and I've never had a problem with service (although i've never gotten take out, only dined in). there's a lovely garden out back and the interior is really nice as well.
