    We were a group of 8 people, we had to wait one and a half hours to finally have to have worse service! We came and had to give our names to have the next free table instead a group that came after us got the next free table. We were told that those people had the table because they made a reservation a week ago when we all knew that no reservations can be made in this restaurant. When we got our table we had to hurry since the kitchen was closing and so was the the restaurant

    Great for a birthday party

    I brought a crowd of 10 or so people to Cafetasia back in March. The food and drinks were excellent. I'll probably go back again this March! My only complaint is that I made reservations for 8pm, and we didn't get seated until 8:30.

    Do the Chicken Basil Udon.

    Have never eaten at Cafetasia, but have ordered from there many times. Delivery is suspiciously fast. Food is generally tasty, but noticeably different on different nights. Skip the pad thai! No good. Try Galanga for the best crispy duck salad ever.

    Hit or Miss, Poor Food Quality

    The quality of food and service here is not consistent. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not. The worst had to be my most recent order. The shrimp was NOT cleaned or cooked properly. The veins and intestinal parts were still attached; there was actually black stringy stuff hanging off my shrimp.

    Four years at NYU and I finally found this place. The food is amazing and beautifully presented. The dishes are unique and fresh. The service is extremely prompt (I have never waited longer than 10 minutes for my food to arrive). The atmosphere is calming and funky. Cafetasia is a great dining experience for both harried students and serious diners.

    not worth it, had better

    my group was late and the hostess gave an attitude, including a warning. apparently, the food lacked authenticity, tasting overly sweet and overly priced. i've had better, cheaper meals. the seats were uncomfortable to sit on, let alone get our legs over those 'lunch' tables. drinks were overly priced, but nice representation. so freaking dark, had to use cell phone light to read menu and the place is smaller than it seems on their site. limited room space. not worth it.

    I had come here once before, and everything was great, except for the funky crunchy coconut on iceburg lettuce. the appetizers were delicious and the sauces very nice. the pineapple rice was amazing. then.... i went back last weekend. it was really bad. the pineapple rice was undercooked, and had no flavor. the basil udon with tofu was SO SPICY and the duck in my duck green apple salad was very, very sweet. overall, it sucked.
