This place started good but after couple of good reviews they spoiled. the service is poor, food quality is not consistent.

This place was a great find 4 years ago; large portions, delicious food, and friendly service. However, we have gone to Sip Sak at least 2 dozen times, and it has been downhill. This last time the service was rushed. And, when we asked for bread for our 2 year old, the wait staff didnt know if it was ok and we had to go to the manager to get it. Skip this place.

For a cheap and quick meal on second ave, this place worked out just fine. The atmosphere is very casual. For a sit-down restaurant, I felt strangely appropriate wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The tables are spaced far enough. The service was pretty hands-off- as we were leaving I overheard another waiter tell some customers about some specials which our server declined to mention. No big deal though. We started with a hummus appetizer, which was light, lemony, and pleasantly textured. A nice change of pace from some hummus preparations more reminiscent of garlic caulk. The entrees were also good. For some reason when I read "Lamb and Okra" on the menu, my brain said "Hmm...Lamb and Orzo...that sounds nice!" Neeless to say, I was a bit surprised when the server placed my plate of cubed lamb in front of me and it was swimming in tomato sauce with tons of strange little green things. I've only had fried okra before, so it was a new experience--the okra was slightly bitter but mild. Nothing to write home about, but if okra is your thing, I bet you'd probably dig it. The Chicken Kebab came with rice (as did the lamb dish) and salad. The salad was fresh and tossed in light vinagrette. The rice and chicken were both tender and tasty. Overall, the food hit the spot, if it didn't blow either of us away. Although the menu wasn't particularly exciting, it did offer plenty of standard mediterranean/middle eastern dishes.

I frequent this restaurant three times a month. I found their food to be delicious, abundant, and fresh. I like their baked chicken, fresh bread, cucmber/yogurt, okra/lamb, red snapper plates.

The hummus is indeed good, as having an excess of grease, is less detrimental to the hummus and can actually be good. Their chicken is also moist but for everything else, from stuffed cabbage, to Mousaka, if you're looking for a better deal, better food, and a good portion size, go somewhere else. The value score, I was generous about, when really for the portion size, you're not getting a great value at all. In fact you're getting shorted (except for the bread.)

Spinach! The spinach and dill appetizer is truly one of the best things I have ever tasted. Can't get enough of it. Everything is has always been wonderful too. Fresh and tasty.

We got tired of chinese food and pizza and had the food from here delivered. It was great. We love the appetizers and the main courses (which we have tried several of). Food is warm (although easy to reheat) and delicious. Portions are sizeable and we had some leftovers. The takeout menu has been added to our permanent menu file.
