Okay, for a person like me, a Special Ed Teacher who runs from school to school all day, my lunch has to be quick, cheap and tasty of course. Jaya Malaysian Resatuarant fit the criteria, however I had to give them points off for the lack of customer service. If you enjoy talking to the wait staff and stellar customer service, then this might not be the place for you. Since one of my main schools is in China Town, NYC, I'm always looking for new spots to eat that fit my lunch time criteria. I decided to check out this restaurant because it was literally around the corner from my school and I was really craving an order of Pad Thai Noodles. Mmmmmmmm. I was seated quickly, almost instantly upon walking in. My order was taken almost as quickly and my food came out in less than 10 minutes. I ordered the shrimp pad thai noodles. The food was good. Not great, but good for a 20 minute lunch stop. The portion size was good enough for me. There wasn't enough to take home in a doggy bag, but it was satisfying for lunch. My bill was reasonable,under $10 for a can of soda and my order. After my order came out I was given no attention from the wait staff, but I wasn't looking for any. Overall it was a good lunch stop for me and I will return again.
I recently found this food gallery / food court after I got a job nearby, and I am so glad that I did. The atmosphere reminds you of food courts in Korea, and the selection of food available at very affordable prices is remarkable. Many times when I am in this area of 32nd street aka Korea Town, my friends and I always spend a great deal of time standing in the streets wondering what we're in the mood for and trying to decide which restaurant would be able to accommodate all our needs. This gallery offers a great range of food, from the typical kimbap, corndogs, spicy rice cakes, to ramen, miso ramen, pho, rice noodles, to korean pastas such as bulgogi pastas, kimchi pastas, seafood cream pastas, to tonkatsu and chicken katsu, to black bean paste noodles and spicy seafood noodles, to chinese food, and to top it off, a Red Mango placed inside the store for dessert convenience! The gallery also offers two floors of seating/eating area with music playing and a great but loud atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend this for a couple who want to have some privacy while dining, but i would definitely recommend this to those who just want to "chill" and eat with friends, co-workers, family, etc.
Crispy duck with pineapple fried rice is a great cuisine. I enjoyed it in Alpha Fusion. Last month I visited this restaurant with my friend. The atmosphere was very pleasant when I went there. I like to eat crispy and spicy dishes and my friend also enjoys this. So we give an order for crispy duck with pineapple fried rice. The crispy dish of the duck skin was well cooked and it was giving great flavors of green onions and pineapple. It was amazingly crispy and it was served in an attractive way. Everything was awesome!
