  • Sweet Spot: Ice Cream

    by sylvia32 Written Feb 21, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sweet Spot.... A great place for the ice cream lover's sweet tooth. Their newest flavor red velvet cake ice cream is fantastic. Staff always lets you try new flavors .... great service but then it makes it hard to decide. My kids go for cotton candy tastes just like the real thing. Smoothies, floats and don't forget the old fashion egg cream. I'm glad they are here!

    Sripraphai: NY's most highly awarded Thai restaurant

    by AuTourDuMonde32 Written Oct 16, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've been coming to this place since it was half the size and about an eighth as acclaimed~ so I will have my little nit-picks about some modifications to the place.. but none of it takes away from the fact that this is a truly truly special place. The food is authentic and lovely.. with tons and tons to chose from.. the atmosphere and decor is great (yet modern).. and the service is just ok... It's no-longer byob, but they've got a nice drink selection... And note that it's closed wednesdays and absolutely impossible to eat at on a friday or saturday night.. as they are highly publicized as of late and they do not take reservations.
    Zagat guides has given them the top rating for top thai in NY for consecutive years.. and Michellin has awarded them in a similar fashion from the first book on NY they made through to their most recent. I personaly tend to frequent other more "off the beaten path" locations with indeed comparable and in some cases superior food, but that is simply because I don't like the crowds and the arrogance they residualy give the staff.. This place is great!

    Favorite Dish: Everything is good.. Though they usually have some nice soft-shell crabs specials (when they are around of course) that are noteworthy and a must if in season~

  • Ariyoshi Restaurant: Japanese in Sunnyside

    by pilarmia Updated May 4, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The prices in this Japanese restaurant are low, especially during the week. They offer incredible dinner bargains, many are under $12 bucks. The food is a firm "good". It never disappoints for the money. The best japanese is in the city for a very steep price.

    Here the rolls are good, and fresh and the staff is very friendly. I have been going there for ten years and love it. Great place with kids. Worth the trip...guaranteed.

    Favorite Dish: Ariyoshi house salad with seaweed and avocado. WOW, the dressing is addictive!

    Himalayan Yak Restaurant: Dal Bhat and Gundruk in Queens

    by hawaiiansnowlion Written Aug 9, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have been going to this restaurant ever since their previous incarnation as the Tibetan Yak five years ago. It has remodeled and is much larger and more 'upscale' than before, though the prices are pretty much the same. They have expanded their menu - they used to serve only Tibetan food, now they also have a Nepali menu - hence their more inclusive name. I am vegetarian and love spicy food so I usually get the spicy potato curry and roti(shogok khatsa) - I've never been disappointed with this dish. Since they started serving Nepali food I sometimes get the vegetarian dal bhat - it's so good I didn't mind paying $9 for it, knowing that in Nepal I would pay 20-30 rupees(less than .50) - the aloo gobi is the best I've had anywhere. I also enjoy the sandeko gundruk, an unusual Nepali vegetable dish you won't find anywhere else. The only disappointing thing about this place is their momos - mediocre at best - go to Lhasa in the E. Village if you want the best momos in NYC.

    Favorite Dish: Hard to pick just one - probably the shogok khatsa - spicy potatoes with lots of cilantro, roti with a plain lassi to cool the heat.

    El Gauchito: Delicious Matambre and Siphones de soda!

    by mle267 Written Dec 30, 2005

    Very casual place- a bit crowded. No frills tablecloths and dishes, but absolutely delicious Argentine food. I was the only non-Argentine there,which is a good sign! Wait staff spoke broken English, which only added to the feeling that I had magically gone back to Argentina. Prices are quite reasonable- especially compared to other Argentine places in the city.

    Favorite Dish: Matambre apetizer was great- came with ensalada rusa, which is like potato salad. I had the Milanesa napolitana which is like beef cutlet parmesan with ham. Dessert was crepes with dulce de leche.

    Rouge: Great French food in queens

    by liqdstar Written Aug 3, 2004

    I love Rouge Bistro. THe food is amazing and the staff is so friendly. They have these great olives on every table, and this "flight of wine" thing thats great for people like me, who love wine but don't really know much about it. You get four little glasses of different kinds of wine (you have to choose either red or white), and they're all really yummy.
    Its a great place to sit around for a long, slow dinner, without having to deal with the usual snottiness found in most NY french restaurants!

    also, the prices are decent.

    Favorite Dish: as usual im going with the alcohol...the flight of wine!

    5 burro cafe: MExican

    by liqdstar Written Mar 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    5 burro is always crowded, but the wait is worth it. this is one of the best mexican restaurants. the margaritas are huge and delicious, and the food portions are very large.

    they have this grilled chicken mexican salad, and i really believe that their grilled chicken is the most tender, flavorful grilled chicken i've ever tasted...

    their weekend brunch is a good deal..the eggs are great.
