    green tea chocolate lava cake is the best thing they have. green tea tiramisu and Thai tea Créme brûlée when they have those are the next best things. otherwise, yuzu eskimo & matcha bubble tea.

    Yes, the green tea lava cake is amazing. Yes, in my opinion, the golden toast is better. Bit of a wait but so worth it. Do the omakase for a group and get the red velvet & matcha cookies!

    We got the 4 desserts for 3 people (as recommended) and it was A LOT. portions are large with a huge scoop of ice cream on each. Personal fave were chocolate green tea lava and golden toast

    The Harvest & the Love Fondue (temporary Valentine's Day special) are what I've personally had, but honestly, everything is so delicious and well-made! It gets crowded in the evening, so come early.

    Their Harvest is a great concept! You 'water' the 'plant' (made of berries, cheesecake and merengues covered in oreo crumble) with rose milk tea. Be sure to pick up a loyalty card!!

    A take-out version of the popular & nearby Spot Dessert Bar. This place serves smaller versions of some of your favourites such as the Chocolate Forest and other pastries and drinks to go.

    The Golden Toast was amazing. The flavor of the ice cream & the toast blended perfectly together. It was sweet & the strawberries added a tanginess to the dish. I loved the overall dish.

    A NYC treasure that tops more well-known dessert places. Pichet changes the menu seasonally, so the awesome rice pudding was no longer there, but every tapas item is always a phenomenal surprise.

    The Golden Toast was surprisingly good. Also surprisingly large! The toast itself is 6x4x3 inches. It reminded me of Spanish bread from the Philippines - toasted bread that's buttered and sugared.

    They offer traditional desserts with an Asian flare. The biggest crowd pleaser is the green tea chocolate lava cake, made of a moist chocolate cake with a gooey green tea filling. Read more

    We love their dark chocolate cake with green tea buttercream, the classic coconut, and the apple crumb cupcakes. And when available, banana walnut cupcakes should be at the top of your list.

    The real draw at this Asian dessert bar is the ice cream, which has an impossibly silken and dense texture, and is offered in flavors like Ovaltine and Vietnamese coffee. Read more

    Get the 3/4 samples and you'll have a happy day. Chocolate mousse, green tea ice cream and berry-based cheese cakes among my favorites here. Oh, and don't forget the thai iced or taro milk tea.

    Desserts with an Asian twist, the choices are hard to resist. Go for the tapas option and order 3 or more. The Chocolate Green Tea Lava is one of the best, and the Green Tearamisu is creatively tasty.

    The Yuzu Eskimo is standout. The banana ice cream in the Banana Chouff is strong but delicious. As someone whom milk doesn't agree with the Coconut Monkeybread is a perfect take in a classic dessert

    The Golden Toast with Condensed Milk Ice Cream is one of the best desserts I've ever had. Try it! The Green Tea Lava Cake was pretty great too.

    Lava cake was our favorite. The harvest (cake, fruit, creme, cookie crumbles, raspberry sherbet) and chocolate forest (mouse with pistachio) were amazing too. Fantastic dessert place. Big portions.

    The chocolate green tea lava cake is THE BEST. If you leave without getting that, you are missing out big time! The macaroons are also excellent. Overall great place, clean with nice servers.

    Coconut Almond Nutella Macaroon: Many say that macaroons are the new cupcakes. When you taste this awesome East Village delight you might understand why.

    They brought soft cheesecake with blueberry compote, oranges and passionfruit foam, and mini cupcakes (Green Tea, Coffee, Coconut, and Mocha) to Choice Eats- sweet and delicious!

    I love this place. So far I've tried the Thai creme brûlée, green tearamisu, green tea cake, sweet potato cake and golden toast and I recommend them all! The Thai tea is really great too :)

    the matcha lava cake is their most famous dessert, but you really can't go wrong (the best deal is to split 3 dishes with a friend)

    I liked The Harvest and the matcha lychee bubble tea. The Harvest is beautifully plated. The matcha lychee bubble tea is light and refreshing.

    The green tea lava cake was melt in your mouth delicious. So moist and warm offset by cold refreshing green tea ice cream! Also winners: green tea macaron and lychee matcha tea!

    The green tea lava cake was as delish as it sounds! All the flavor have a natural and clean taste. Tip: if you come an hour before closing all the cupcakes and cookies are half off

    Unique and delicious desserts by Thai iron chef Kittichai are perfect for sharing - get 3 for $23 or up to 7 desserts for $55 depending on your party size/appetite

    You may have to wait a while but remedy that with a lot of chocolate green tea lava cake. Be prepared to use your fork as a weapon because who needs enemies when your friends ravage your plate, right?

    Unique desserts quite unlike anywhere else. Get the coconut cheesecake only if you like coconut, they don't skimp! The Thai iced tea Creme brûlée is interesting in its presentation, and tasty!

    What they call tapas is fully sized desserts. Everything here is great. Don't over do it, you'll get a green tea chocolate overdose!

    I had The Harvest and loved it! The berry sorbet is so flavoursome and the pot is full of cream and fruit. Highly recommended!

    Love how they mix flavors, the pistachio ice cream and chocolate, and green tea ice cream with the chocolate volcano. <3

    Creative Asian-inspired dessert plates can be found at this Saint Mark's eatery. The chocolate green tea lava cake and the Champagne Mango Crepe are both standouts.

    Love the unconventional dessert flavors here. Green tea lava cake is by far a favorite, but all the tapas are amazing - so get a bunch with your friends and share!

    My absolute favorites: Chocolate green tea lava cake and golden toast. If you got a group or a gigantic sweet tooth, get omakase and try multiple desserts!

    I love the continued growth of dessert tapas bars in NYC, but I didn't love Spot the way I've enjoyed many other spots. The presentation and service are wonderful but desserts are somewhat bland.

    The harvest was so good!! Their 3 dessert special is nice but super difficult between two people! Be sure to balance out with a ratio of two sweet and one light.

    For that serious chocolate craving get the Chocolate Forest. Rich, dense chocolate mousse cake with a gooey centre.

    I don't know or care if they are Asian inspired, but this place is the best desserts in NY and I've had a lot. The harvest and the mango thing were amazeballs.

    Great place for a group of friends (like 6 people) to get together and splitting 5 desert tapas, three macarons, & two icecream a/sorbets on a weeknight

    The banana chouff was delicious and the bubble tea had a lot of tapioca in it! Waitress was super nice as well.

    Best Thai dessert spot in NYC. Usually very crowded and might have a wait time. Great desserts. Try their signature toast and lava cake.

    This place is like a tapas bar filled with innovative creations such as the Green tea lava cake. We've never seen an explosion of green tea like it, and we loved it.
