Good food, but where's the french? 6/11/2007

My wife, my sister and I ate here while on vacation in NYC last Thursday. Overall it was good. Pros: food, location, prices Cons: they advertise French, but don't really have it. more

Good food but rude staff 5/15/2007

This cafe is cute and the food is good, but the wait staff has too much attitude. If you intend to order a full meal, you'll probably enjoy it and you'll be treated politely enough. But if you're just going for dessert or splitting an appetizer, the staff will become incredibly rude and condescending--even if they have almost no customers at the moment and there is plenty of room for other customers who might want to spend more money. So don't bother going unless you plan to order a full meal. Pros: Good food, clean place Cons: Rude staff more

Great chicken curry! 11/3/2006

I had two of the dishes recommend by other reviewers- the mango squid salad and the chicken curry noodle. The mango squid salad was ok in flavor, it was also small-portioned. The chicken curry made up for it with very strong flavors. The cost of a meal here is very reasonable and makes it a good lunch spot. I will be going back to try other dishes. Pros: Cheap and tasty more

Chicken Curry!!!! 10/22/2004

Any time I'm within 10 blocks of Franklin Station (and often when I'm nowhere even close!), I make a point of stopping in for a bowl of their chicken curry noodle soup. PERFECTION. Get a nice cold Sierra Nevada to go with it and you're sitting pretty. One of my favorites in NYC. more

Excellent 6/23/2003

Franklin Station is one of New York's best values. Delicious, well-prepared food, served in an airy cafe space where most entrees cost less than $15. The cafe is very close to the 1-9 Franklin Station subway stop, and has a pretty terrace for warm-weather dining. And the staff, reputed to be rude, actually greet regulars by name and with a smile. Pros: fresh food, quick service more

this spot is hot 3/4/2003

except for the generically bland decor, this spot is a first class restaurant, serving up authentic and absolutely delicious malaysian food. They also have great coffee and regular breakfast food, as well as tasty sandwiches. All this ensures that even if ur tryin to go with someone that doesnt like malaysian (or is afraid to try) they can have stuff that they def will eat. The afformentioned bland decor is more like super nice when compared to the dirty malaysian spots in chinatown too. Try the creamed spinach chicken and the mango squid salad, 2 of my favs. Yeah the service is curt, but its quick and accurate, which is all i care about. Pros: off the heezy eats, quick Cons: unexciting decor, but clean more

Great food, not so great desserts or.... 7/19/2002

appetizers, and the selection was too small. Next time I go, I'll skip these courses. Nice selection of entres. The food was very good. Portion size was adequate on some entres, but skimpy on others. I had the Mango Curry Shrimp, and it was delicious!! And, the portion size was very good too. The Chicken Istimewa was also very good, with good portion size. I would NOT recommend the Papaya Boat or the Terenggaru Shrimp; not worth the price, especially if you're hungry. I went with 3 people, and they all enjoyed their meal. Pros: inexpensive, not crowded, decent parking Cons: plain desserts, only beer and wine, small tables more

Crude and Quirky 5/20/2002

I had heard that the waiters here are curt. (They are.) They act as though they were working at one of NYC's most exclusive fine dining establishments. (They're not.) I kept my interactions with them to a minimum and focused my energy on the company and the food. The curry chicken noodles are flavorful without being too spicy; my friend enjoyed the mango curry shrimp. Making the experience unique and compensating for the rude waitstaff was a makeshift sideshow. I'm guessing that the washed out, thematically unrelated images would act as a perfect icebreaker if you were on a first date. more
