I love how this lovely cafe takes in tired/hot guests and makes everyone all calm and happy with a great homely feel and first-class service. This is definitely the best place for deep conversations (not loud conversations!!) because the volume of the music is low and the lights are not too bright nor too dim. You don't feel rushed at all! :) Food is mediocre but the desserts and drinks can be refreshing.

This is the only restaurant that I know of in NYC that serves (what I call) contemporary Japanese cafe food. If you're looking for omurice or spaghetti neapolitan , this is the joint for you. If you're looking for an Italian spaghetti dish, this is not the right place. Most negative reviews I've seen fall in this camp. I order lunch from here about once a week. It's fantastic, try it out.

this place is a big joke. Even a canned meat sauced Spaghetti with ketchup took 35minutes for the kitchen to make. With all the restaurants closing in NYC, made me wonder how they survive. With Tourist with bad palates I guess..

this is the most adorable cafe that i know of in nyc. its very homey, and cozy and cute. they have great art on the walls, and nice music and the food is great! just like the cafes in japan. i recommend this place for everyone that wants to just chill out and not be pressured to be spending so much money on everything. just one thing thats missing, i don't see Hiroko anymore. she used to be there whenever i visited... my favorite dish is the Hamburg- Curry-Doria. its just everything you desire. so delicious.

The reason that I went to this place was after reading some of the reviews here and I was totally disappointed when I tried the food myself. I ordered a Kino- Tara Spaghetti and it was so dried and was overpriced for $13. My friend ordered one of the Hiroko's specialty -Seafood Doria with Rice. The portion is so small and is overprced at $14. I felt bad that I recommended this place to my friends. We are definitely not going back.

I had the Omu-Curry which is fried rice wrapped inside an omlette with curry sauce on top. It was very good. And the waitresses were very kind especially the owner Hiroko. I didn't notice I had [drop]ped my wallet until I got back to my office from having lunch at Hiroko's Place. As I was calling my credit card company, my secretary tells me that there is a Hiroko to see me. And there she was, Hiroko herself has delivered my wallet to me. She said since the office was so close by she thought it would be faster if she just brought it herself. Such a generous person.

This is one of the best restaurants that I've been to. It's a nice and quiet inside the restaurant. They have great service there too. The waitresses are really polite and nice. They're always smiling. It's so different from other restaurants in that it feels so much like home or just a place to relax. There's couches that you could sit on and sip your coffee. But if you prefer to sit at a table, you could choose the round tables or regular rectangle ones. My favorite food there has got to be the green tea parfait! It's soo delicious and healthy too cuz its got lots of different fruits in it. Im going with my group of friends every other week now.
