I came to this restaurant with the NYC Vegan Meetup group. I didn't have any expectations... I left with a great experience. Great ambiance! Delicious vegan dishes - soup, appetizer, tea, entree, and dessert. I will surely return.

For someone who is used to choosing "one of the two vegetarian dishes" at most NYC restaurants, Franchia was a pleasant change. Great atmosphere, great food, TONS of choices, and moderately priced. I only wish the kitchen was open later so we can catch a great meal after a show or movie.

This palce is lovely - I'd come more often if it was in a more interesting neighborhood. Most of the wait staff is friendly, though at times they were so atttentive it made me a bit uncomfortable. The food is good but a bit on the expensive side for what it is. The presentation, however, is wonderful! I'd love to try the prix fix one of these days when I have a large enough appetite - the deal sounds too good to be true.

I love the middle tier here. Sit down at your table with the tiny candle flickering, and you can't help but relax. The food is good -- not spectacular -- but good and fresh. I loved the ice zitrone and ice plum tea; both tasted intensely of the fruit (the plum seed was sitting in the bottom of the glass). And, unlike its sister restaurant -- Hangawi -- you don't have to worry about wearing thick socks! Defintely a place to put in the rotation.

From the peaceful environment to the attentive yet non-intrusive service to the delicious food, Franchia is a winner on all counts. The vegetarian food is delicious, nutritious and healthy and even a non-vegetarian such as myself did not leave feeling hungry or wanting more. The first time I ordered Franchia, my girlfriend and I ordered a lunchtime delivery and found it so good that we ordered another delivery for dinner that same evening, and we enjoyed every single dish we ordered. I should mention that even the deliveries are tastefully presented. The teas and smoothies are fantastic and I now find myself having trouble walking by without stopping in for one when I walk by. I could not recommend this restaurant more.

The atmosphere is really great. Quiet and calming. They have a great selection of teas and a cute little gift shop area for tea cups and packaged tea leaves. The food is great. The dumplings are amazing and they just have a wonderful selection of appetizers, noodles, sushi rolls, etc. My non-vegetarian friends were impressed, too.

The food is really nothing special, The bibimpap is like a boxed meal you would get on an airplane in korea. And they tried to charge me 6 bucks for bottled water. Yeah right.
