Dim Sum Go Go is an unsuspecting restaurant in Chinatown that’s a ton of fun. Their menu is based around Dim Sum (hence the name) and the decorative red wallpaper is bright and gives the place a something special. There are vegetarian friendly options and noodle and stew options too if you’re not looking for Dim Sum off the cart.
All you can eat…Sushi? Our dreams have come true at Kumo Sushi in the East Village. The restaurant features a traditional Japanese ambiance with a Tatami room for dining with privacy, a large dinner hall, and a more casual sushi bar.

Korean BBQ and Korean inspired street food are big in New York. Queen’s is a known area for Korean cuisine but if you’re in Manhattan there’s no better place than KTown to find the goods. Pocha 32, a family style restaurant (with portions large enough to feed a pretty big family), is especially popular for dinner and after hours drinks. The locale is open from 5pm till 4am and gets seriously crowded on the weekends so it’s best to get there early. Try the Watermelon Soju!
Pho anyone? The outside of Cơm Tấm Ninh Kiều on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx might not be the trendiest but the food sure is good! The thick tapioca noodles and different soups, meat balls and chili sauce are all delish!
Ngam in the East Village is the place to go for modern Thai comfort food. Of course the Pad Thai is great and their small plates like Thai Tacos and Bacon Laab along with their $6 Happy Hour cocktails make it a great after work spot.
The Bombay Bread Bar is a new trendy Indian food spot in SoHo. The decor is adorable and the menu offers small plates, nice Indian breads and chutneys as well as a slew of great drinks.
Honorable Mention: Vegan Southern Asian Fusion
Ok, so this place isn’t exactly from one country and hence has landed in the honorable mention section. Red Bamboo is an Asian fusion vegan restaurant in Greenwich Village. The menu has choices ranging from Asian Dumplings to Spring Rolls to Caribbean Jerk Spiced Seitan. While this hot spot can’t technically be classified in any other category than “awesome” it ends up on our list cause it’s delicious!
