    Good Food, Not Worth the Wait

    My husband and I went with another couple on a Saturday night. When we called, they said they do not take reservations but the wait is usually about 5-10 minutes. This was not the case! We stood by the door, squished and freezing for at least a half hour. And this was not even so late. When we left at about ten thirty, the crowd waiting by the door had grown quite large. The food was quite good. However, in my opinion, it was outweighed by the not so pleasant wait.

    Yuuuuuummy!

    I have been to Noi Dui again and again with my girlfriends and on dates. This place is delicious. I've tried a bunch of their plates and have never been disappointed. The staff is also the friendliest bunch, not your typical waiters. The only downside is that because the restaurant is very popular, it's often crowded and noisy. Makes it hard to hear the person sitting across from you sometimes. The wait time can also long in the evenings.

    Great food, abysmal service

    On the plus side: calling a day in advance for a party of 11 helped us secure a table with a minimal wait -- they don't take reservations but the advanced notice helped; food was excellent Downside: goal of restaurant: get you sat, get you fed, get you out (the last two not necessarily mutually exclusive); waiter berated my kids for being loud in a very loud restaurant; they started cleaning my table even before we were finished; I complained to the waiter about his service, and the manager -- like talking to two walls; loved the food, but you dine for the experience, not just to get in your 3rd meal of the day; will NOT return

    Long wait, poor service

    There is always a wait, even early in the evening on a typically quiet night. They do not take reservations and there is no area to wait, so people are stuck waiting by the door feeling cramped and sometimes even outside on the stairs. We were in line first, but were given a poorer table because as we overheard the maƮtre d say, the people behind us were "big spenders". The food was so-so, but we were given our check while we were still eating and rushed out. As we were leaving other people also complained of the same thing...overall really poor service.

    Excellent restaurant unfairly panned by reviews

    My wife and I were visiting from Upstate and went to Noi Due for lunch with our friends who recommended it. She is a cookbook author. We were all very happy and enjoyed our food. Their pizza Margherita was classically simple. Their rolled lasagna was very creative. Their desserts were delicious.The staff and management were friendly and accommodating. The critics missed the point, the management wants to serve Kosher food that is also good to eat. If they have long lines and more patrons then they plan they are part of the growing pains and maturation process of a good restaurant. The key issue is the food which is excellent for an NYC kosher restaurant. Any restaurant can and does have glitches. This restaurant deserves strong support because they are trying to do a good job of serving good Kosher food at a reasonable price.

    Decent food, poor management

    After being seated and placing our order, we were kindly asked to move to a side table with no room to make room for a larger party that had showed up (without a reservation). Having gladly complied, I had hoped that my courtesy would be reciprocated with a small gesture; perhaps a comped drink. When I inquired management gruffly refused. The attitude was not appreciated, and I will not be returning.

    Not recommended

    My husband and I went to this restaurant after checking the reviews online. I had high expectations, I am Italian and I was excited to go to a kosher Italian restaurant in NY. Big mistake. - Average wait for a couple on a Sat. nigh: 45 min. to 1 hour. They do NOT accept reservations! - The hostess kept on trying to push us to buy a bottle of wine. We get a bottle of wine if WE WANT to. - Food: Food was the last drop. I ordered arancini, which should be made with rice, instead it was made with "macaroni" (read macaroni and cheese fried into ball). The melanzane imbottite were decent. The Branzino was decent but they ran out of potatoes and decided to switch my side dish without letting me know (rice instead of potatoes??) The cheese ravioli were soggy and doughy. We ran out of this restaurant and never looked back, we are never gonna go back, obviously.
