    Every bite was delicious! We loved the chicken samosas and the chicken curry and pork vindaloo were wonderful. I had the coconut rice on the side and it was just perfect. I

    Everything was sooooo good! They have a special for lunch that you pay a fix price for one starter/main/desert... The service could be better, but it's really worth it.

    Best mojito I've had in a long time! I highly suggest the Kumquat mojito. It's very tasty, fresh, and citrusy. If you don't like very sweet drinks I suggest to ask for less sweetness in your cocktail.

    This place brings you happiness on a plate with a lot of flavor. Just the right amount. The decor n music makes your dining experience 10x better. The place in one word? Flavor.

    Easily one of my favorite restaurants in NYC honestly you really can't go wrong here with anything you get. My personal favorite is the sushi and the oval time chocolate ganache for dessert.

    Late to the game on this one, but the service and food here is outstanding. Go with the chipoltle sushi from the raw bar and the chicken samosas! Curried red duck is delicious paired with rice!

    Spice Market didn't disappoint. The Vietnamese Curried Chicken was amazing. Small portions but the flavor and texture was just right. The ambiance is very trendy and engulfing.

    Start with the salmon tartare, then get the curry duck or the lobster. Finish with the coconut sorbet (coconut cake is rather oversweet). Don't forget to order the Thai iced tea or kumquat mojito!

    The services is above and beyond; everywhere I turned there's a waiter(ess) with a smile on their face. If the menu is too overwhelming, the tasting menu is a nice way to go. We were easily full!

    Mushroom dumplings and the salmon tartar were both delicious. If you don't like cilantro, don't order the chickpea with mango. The Vietnamese spring rolls are deep fried, not the usual fresh

    Highly recommend the Grilled Short Rib Burger with Asian Pear and Korean Chili Sauce. Interesting fusion of Asian flavors on a burger.

    In my eyes JG barely does anything wrong. I come here once a month & as a foodie in NYC-huge compliment. Go all the way and do the tasting menu also dont forget to come back and try the other dishes.

    Good ambiance, music, service. Food is amazing.. But the GingerMargaritas were off the hook. Amazing Asian cuisine in the heart or NYC. Have the coconut sticky rice with the duck !

    Chef calls this "Asian street food," and it sort of is, from all of Asia at once, but it's also refined and the atmosphere is very upscale. Really great lunch today! The chili cod is great!

    As everyone says, the ambiance is on point! The brunch dishes are reasonably priced ($15 for my delicious short rib hash and poached egg), and the biscuits were flavorful!

    The coconut chicken soup was ordinary, the pumpkin soup was the best soup i ever had!!! The chicken wings were bursting with flavor, maybe too much flavor.. Duck curry was great, i highly rec it.

    Everything is amazing here, especially Char Grilled Chicken, chicken and steak skewers, spicy chicken samosas, and Ginger Fried Rice. One of the best restaurants I've been to.

    Great food that comes with a slight attitude (in a good way). They are not afraid of using spices and no matter what food you pick, you will walk away happy

    A well executed gimmick best suited for an early evening cocktail and people watching. Enjoy the over-the-top interior design while sipping on a ginger margarita and munching on wasabi peanuts

    The tasting menu is definitely good value ($50). Awesome food, although the dessert selection in the tasting menu was kind of average. Also definitely try the Yuzi Lemon Drop cocktail.

    It's a super-styled big-box Meatpacking District restaurant, but the Southeast Asian-inspired food has remained consistently tasty over the years (though you'll pay quite a bit for it).
  • La W.

    They have a whole vegetarian tasting menu that's excellent and contrary to what the menu says, you can order it individually, no need to tyrannize the entire table!!!

    Sit on the patio for lunch, it's (for NYC) quiet and splitting some dishes makes it the perfect amount of food. I suggest trying: salmon tartare, mussels, calamari salad.

    Amazing ambience. Romantic and trendy. Date spot. Loved the Black Shrimp appetizer, papad w/chutney, and cocktails.

    If you are used of Thai / Asian food it is very sweetened and lightened regarding taste. We are far from the genuine asian flavors. Convenient in the area but not a must.

    After 12 years in Asia, we're often disappointed - not here! Black pepper shrimp, chili cod and pork belly (if you appreciate the crispy, fatty bit of heaven). Ginger rice was bland though

    We went for lunch with a big group. The place was dead but the service was still incredibly slow. Prix fixed menu didn't have enough for everyone to try for multiple courses. An overall disappointment

    The other dish server mentioned was lemongrass chicken. This had good flavors but was on spicy side for an Asian. Cayenne must have been added beyond the lemongrass.
