This is one of the worst places i have ever been.

1. Unprofessional Service and the waiters are very very rude, they treat people as if they are begging for food.
2. Worst food ever : The food might be day or tow old. All they do is microwave it. One can feel that easily.
3. Expensive : this is really not worth the price.

All i can say is "Never go to this place even if it is for free".

My wife and I discovered this place early in September. The food is delicious. We thought we found a great new place to add to our list of favorites. When we found they also had a place in our neighborhood of South Plainfield, we were thrilled and visited them for take-out. That's when we found they charge extra for rice at dinner. We thought it odd as we've never paid extra for rice at any Asian restaurant. I began to think maybe we were being too picky until I noticed other reviewers also found the rice situation odd. Anyway, we still thought the taste of the food compelling. We had lunch again today at the Jersey City location. After paying for our meal we were in the middle of a conversation when the maitre d' stopped by our table and asked us to leave because he had customers waiting for tables. Needless to say I found this the most obnoxiously rude behavior I have ever been subjected to by a place I just lavished my hard-earned money on. But the incident served to knock the rose-tinted glasses from our eyes. I can't say the food is not delicious, it is, but I can also say this: the food is pricey; the servings are small; the decor is old and shabby; the chairs have more stains on them than any discerning restauranteur would allow, and they are very weak (I was surprised whenever I made it through a meal without my rear plunging through the weak seat cushion); we also had dogfights on a couple of occasions with a persistent fly or two buzzing our table. In summary: the food is great, but management stinks. We won't be spending anymore of our money here.

WORST food I have ever eaten outside. Overloaded with spice (Chili), oils and garlic. Every dis has almost same taste (garlic and chili). Even fried rice had too much chili and garlick. I could not tast anything it masked and killed my tase buds

Had been to the restaurant several times and during our previous visit we spotted several mice. It was horrific and we dare not go there again.

Horrible service and the MOST TERRIBLE food I have ever eaten. I was sick for 3 days after and my stomach still turns thinking about it. The hostess was too busy talking to her other lazy friends and our waitress was very rude. She messed up our order and rolled her eyes at us, as if it was our fault. Considering it was EMPTY on a Saturday night, you would think they would be more attentive. I will never go back .You are better off going to Manhattan and spending less and getting better food and service. By the way, rice is $4 extra. With their high prices, rice should be included.

I went to eat and have a good time, I did eat but the good time never came. I walk inside and first thing I saw was the hostess playing with somebody, we sat and our server was great (maybe she tried too hard) but at the end of the night somebody drooped hot sauce all over my jacket without saying sorry. just for that im not coming back

Worst place as far as service goes. i specially mentioned food should be non spicy and they served spicy food and the wrong dish as well. The staff is rude and the manager not helpful. the food tastes fine so thats the saving grace.

Average food mixed with indifferent service and deteriorating decor. Takeout food tastes much worse than eating at the restaurant. At the restaurant, some dishes are ok, the rest overspiced or too oily. Don't make the mistake of visiting the restroom, unless you want to lose your appetite.

We were told it was bollywood night every other friday where a dJ will come and play the music and you get to drink and dance. we went there to realize that the DJ was a frustrated creative guy who kept mixing non bollywood songs except a couple of numbers, people didn't stay long and next thing we knew they started playing Salsa(which was good music) but basically had the owner dancing with his employees and visiting friends and our group(the PAYING customer) feeling left out. NEVER EVER go therefor the promised friday night. It was an employee night with the owner hoping to make some money off us.

I waited for an hour to finally pick-up food I'd ordered. They walked by me several times as if I was a nuisance when come to find out the cashier messed up the order. In the end my food was sloppy prepared in a rush, and the response I got was: The cashier was busy during lunchtime.

While their food is not bad, they are a pain to deal with. Delivery requests are sometimes - and randomly - met with "the delivery man is not in today." They need better, consistent delivery, and a fax machine that works.

For me, the food is excellent but my hat off to the hostess who greets when you enter..She's affable, friendly and very accomading..She's a joy...
