Great appetizer salads and special rolls! General Tso's Chicken and Spicy Shredded Beef dishes are amazingly crispy and full of spicy/sweet flavor (and the chicken is actually all-white meat!). Decor is lacking; however service is good considering very affordable prices. Didn't expect anything out of the ordinary, but received quite extraordinary food! Definitely my new place for General Tso's Chicken and their one of a kind sexy roll (the seared albacore tastes great!).

I have been fortunate to be able to eat here 3 times over the last month. Each time I was with family and friends and we have different tastes in asian food. Potluck's menu satified everyones tastes. Although this restaurant has a mostly Japanese menu, we tried their pad thai noodles and several of their chinese dishes. The dried beef dish, General Taos chicken and sea treasures in xo sauce were great. The japanese menu is my favorite. They have very tasty speciality rolls. We tried the spicey girl roll, Christmas roll and a king crab roll and all were delicious. My husband didn't care for their Viet nam style noodle soup but the miso soup was great. The service everytime we went was very attentive, friendly and professional. It's so nice to be greeted with a smiling face. And they were friendly, smiling and accomodating with every request we made. Their prices are comparable with any other moderate priced asian restaurant in Chelsea and to sweeten the deal they offer a free bottle of hot sake or wine with dinner. Give it a try.

I ordered the Vietnamese noodle with beef and the Thai red curry with beef. Both are mediocre and not worth the price! The wonton soup has no stuffing at all. Its such a waist of my tummy...!!!!!!

My cousin recommended this restaurant. We started with Gyoza, which were good. The kids ate some wonderful General Tso's, not that nasty deep fried stuff the kids normally eat. However, the stuff is not for the faint of heart it does have some heat. The adults ate sushi from the Chef's Special Rolls menu. These absolutely blew me away! They ranged from great to FABULOUS! Three of us shared a Jade Roll, Titanic Roll, Spicy Girl Roll, Christmas Roll, and Summer Roll. My personal favorites were the Titanic, delicate scallop, and Summer, surprising kiwi. The restaurant was wonderful to my very tired children and took great care of us. Can't recommend the food higher!

The prior MenuPages reviews of Potluck were overwhelmingly favorable, so I was psyched to try this place. I was hoping for sushi that would rival the raw fish I tasted on the West Coast, and my wife already had visions of Tokyo and Osaka dancing in her head. We called in an order of one veggie roll, one yellowtail jalapeno roll and the sushi grace combo (10 pcs + a spicy tuna roll), and picked up our order on the way home. I started with the miso soup, which was tasty and, most importantly on a cold wintry night, hot. While I was busy with the soup, the Mrs. attacked the yellowtail jalapeno roll and the veggie roll. I asked for the initial verdict when I finally turned my attention to the sushi in the combo tray her response was “It’s OK.” My heart sank. I tasted a piece of the spicy tuna roll – very mushy, spice-infused, utterly forgettable. Next on the agenda: the sushi pieces. Visually, they looked a little odd because each piece was long and slender (not even wide enough to cover the underlying rice ball) and quite thin, a noticeable contrast from the stubbier and thicker slices of fish one frequently finds here in NYC. The first bite revealed that the fish was not especially fresh or well-prepared. It was basically "supermaket sushi." The Mrs. tried a couple of pieces, too. After I finished eating the remaining fish, my wife d this meal “totally unsatisfying.” I had to agree. Hmph.

I went to Potluck last night based on the reviews from menupages. We almost left because we were there for a 24th birthday party and then ambiance was not very lively... (i.e. there was not that many people there). We decided to stay and were very happy. The food was very good.. the fish was really fresh and the rolls were creative, inventive, and thoughtful. They also give you a glass of wine or saki with dinner. Its a new place people should definitely try... I think the lack of crowd is due to the location. Also, its fairly reasonable in price.

We were a party of 7 celebrating my son's girlfriends birthday. The staff went above and beyond to help - singing Happy Birthday with us and bringing out the cake with lit candles. The [select]ion of food was large, presentation of each dish was amazing , and the food was delicious- each and every dish! would definately recommend and will be going back there.
