Fantastic food. The tapas are exceptional, authentic, and clearly conceived by a well schooled chef! Congrats. He uses the Spanish and Latino ingredients beautifully. Now, let me mention the design. That too is a WOW -- the Diego Rivera paintings for one, not to mention the really fine cocktails, and elegant but not snobby service. Go!
Loved Pardes. Original dishes, well constructed and well conceived. Delicious. The service is excellent. Dishes are explained and everyone working there has a positive vibe. A great addition to the area.
The food is absolutely the best... superb! However, the service is slow. Last time we were there, it took an hour to get served. Needs improvement.
Green rainbow sushi
My sisterhood hosted a trip to NY this Sunday and we ate lunch at Estihana in Manhattan. Lunch was delicious! One of the items on our menu was Green Rainbow Sushi. Normally, I'm not much of a sushi eater, but this was incredible and I would love to know the ingredients used in this dish. I know that the top was thinly sliced cucumber, but what went into the sushi roll? Thank you, Judi
Owner Avi Cohen has outdone himself with the newly opened, La Brochette. Beautifully appealing architecture and ambience lends its way to the deliciously tasty French cuisine served up at this upscale steakhouse in the heart of midtown Manhattan.
Upon entry you will be warmly welcomed by the friendly and knowledgeable staff who will seat you at your table and floor of
preference – as there are three levels to choose from. White tablecloths and napkins grace the warm mahogany tables which are decked out ever so elegantly with fine china, flatware and clean cut glassware. The artfully designed menus are loaded with decadent dishes to choose from. Steaks are juicy and seared to perfection and their sushi is par excellence. Every bite off of every dish is bursting with fresh flavors and the presentations are inspiringly creative.
On “live nights” enjoy being serenaded by violinists or saxophonists which definitely adds some joie de vivre. So when looking for a night out on the town La Brochette is the ultimate dining experience!
I think it is great to have a Kosher Chinese restaurant, but they shouldn't promote it by saying it is "reasonably priced".If you order an appetizer, soup and any dish you could easily go to well over $60 a person without adding for drinks and dessert and tax and tips. To me that is not reasonably priced.

For Manhattan standards and pricing that is almost reasonable.
The finest and tastiest Sushi anywhere. It is so good that you don't want to swallow. For the translation of "betampt" try any of their special sushis. The finest employers, my finest customer, and perhaps the most ehrlich businessmen in the food industry. We wish them continued success in ruchnius and gashmias this year.
The food was fabulous! We like the new look. We were regulars at La Carne Grill and missed it terribly. This is a really great place. Service was outstanding. Only one criticism, the musician (which is a nice idea), really didn't play for us. He played for two minutes and then went out to smoke. He also kept running back and forth without playing anything. We were the only ones in the restaurant. Just to be clear we loved the restaurant and hopes it succeeds!
wow is all I have to say me and my wife just went our for are 20th annversery at Haifa and the service was 5 star and so dynamic ive never ever incountered great service like I did at Haifa wow................. and the food was so dynamic and tasty and the owner came out to make sure we were treated great im so very impressed and me and my wife will be back............
Claude and Eva Labi are also the proud owners of Cafe Vert - a delicious and homey french cafe - located right across from Lotus at 9490 Harding Avenue, Surfside Fl.
Kosher restaurant in Warsaw
INCREDIBLE! Glatt kosher restaurant, with sofisticated delicious food! I couldn't belive... Galil - new restaurant located in the old building, near Warsaw synagouge... What I can tell more - it was amazing dinner . I regret that they are not in the neighborhood...
I work in the neighborhood and had enjoyed the lunch buffet several times. The price was good, the food excellent, and the service great! I brought colleagues as well who are used to spending time in NYC dining in varied and high end places and they were impressed with the cuisine. Because Orchidea is elegant while at the same time warm and friendly, it occurred to me that it may be perfect for my son's Bar Mitzvah. From the moment Ofer took on this celebration, I was in good hands. He listened to all the details of what I wanted, added his own ideas, completely took care of everything. The Bar Mitzvah was beautifully arranged, the table setting elegant, the food delicious and artfully presented. Each place setting had a personalized menu with a bar mitzvah them and my son's name on it. The menu was generous and included salad, soup, main course and dessert. The guests were very pleased with the service and the ambience and my son felt that his day was a very special one. We had small children and they were accommodated without issue as well as a very last minute guest list, which created no challenge at all for Ofer. The waiters were fantastic, even pitching in to help with pictures. My son couldn't decide which table he wanted and they switched the head table 3 times without the slightest appearance of being at all put out. Ofer baked a beautiful large challah specially the morning of the bar mitzvah. The day couldn't have been better and we thank Orchidea staff and management for the personalized attention, the attention to detail and for delivering on the ask. A special thanks to Ofer Kohen! Thanks, Ofer!
Finally a good kosher restaurant near Disney. I went to some of the kosher restaurant with my family but none can compare to Voka rest. The waitress was all smiles and very helpful and dinner was amazing. Everything was delicious. So much that we went twice. Best steaks ever.

Pita Plus on Sterling Ave in Hollywood Beach has one of the best falafels I have ever tasted
Food was excellent ... but be aware that the local police set up a radar speed trap on Corlies Avenue for anyone going over 25 mph, even though the limit on identical street in neighboring town is 40 mph! Police recognize the absurdity of this hateful, politically motivated trap. I would avoid Allenhurst. Sodom and Gomorrah had pretty good food too, but it was a place to avoid.
Any recommendations for gluten free in Five Towns?
The food was wonderful. I had the grilled water melon salad (surprisingly delicious) and the spicy/peppered steak, indeed spicy, very savory and cooked perfectly "medium". We are happy that, finally, there is a kosher restaurant to eat a proper restaurant meal when we visit Disney.
The food was good, service was pleasant. But $4.00 for a can of coke??? Oh, and they added the tip already onto the Bill which is fine except that the bottom of the Bill has suggested amounts for the tip so if you are not paying attention you will end up adding on an additional amount and unknowingly tipping 30-35% instead of the usual 15-20%.
Having a birthday lunch tomorrow for my daughter. I came in from New Orleans and we are so looking forward to being at the Purple Pear in Monsey The menu looks great and I want to try everything!!!! and its all kosher!!! Happy Birthday Philyss Samuels Seidenfeld, love daddy
The place is pretty nice for a sit-down lunch or dinner. It usually gets pretty crowded, being the only dairy 'restaurant' in Monsey, (Al Di La deserves mention here, but for some reason Purple Pear is frequented much more). The food is great, it has lots of taste and the service is good. I had the French onion soup, and would not recommend it to anyone, however the fish items were great.
Love the place, service is quick - the way fast food ought to be. The menu is very extensive (although they dont always have everything availble). The food that imtried so far has been really tasty, evem the chinese dishes are made quick. One down side, The Schwarma guy is nasty, perhaps they should consider getting a nicer fellow.

a while ago Orchidea was featured in either Mishpacha or Binah magazine and several of their recipes were posted, among them the yeminite soup. i lost the magazine with the recipe and would love to get it again. I would purchase a copy of the magazine. anyone know anything about this?
The food is really good here, it is not over stated, perfectly seasoned. The chef clearly understands how to layer flavors. I also really like the ambiance, the staff is knowledgeable and very friendly without being overbearing. It is a place you can an associate to, and feel like you are definitely not going to be embarrassed. i am definitely a fan and return customer, the kind of place you really don't get sick of.
I've been here a couple of times and I must say, I simply love the decor and service. My first two times going there a young, good looking fellow named Edward served me and he was phenomenal so now I just request him. I think I love him....
Best place to order from!!! Thank you so much for making up such a beautiful fruit platter, with cheese cakes and Tiramisu! Amazing customer service with a personal touch.
We hosted a sheva brachot there last night. The entire crowd was wowed by the food & presentation & service - from the hors d'oeuvres through dessert. I have hosted events there on many occasions and have never been disappointed. They are always outstanding and a pleasure to work with!
By far the best prepared Shabbat meal I have ever had. July 2013. The people were so friendly and happy and helpful and thorough and concened about our happiness. My family and I felt like We were enjoying a warm home cooked meal but perfectly executed by a five star chef. Jerusalem Glatt Kosher Restaurant made our vacation an amazing experience. The Challah is the best I have ever had. Amazing place. Must try
Best restaurant in the 5 towns !!! great food great service !!!
On June 9, 2013, I attended a bridal shower at Orchidea. I must say the food was delicious. From the sushi all the way to the deserts. The food was seasoned to perfection and I enjoyed everything I consumed. The service was awesome and a good time was had by all.
Very good . went with my grandson . He had fried i had grilled schnitzel Attentive staff
Delicious food items, highly recommended

Tonight was my second time at this new Indian Kosher restaurant. I am generally not impressed with the quality of kosher restaurants in NYC, but Shalom Bombay goes above and beyond the others. They are very passionate about the food they prepare and the service they provide. On both visits, they went the extra mile to make sure my experience was pleasant and my food outstanding. So far I have tried the Chicken tikka naan, Tandoori mix kabab and lunch buffet with my friends, both were far better than other kosher NYC restaurants. Prices are very affordable, ranging from $20 to $30 for a beef/lamb or chicken items, they offered lunch buffet $14.95 per person which is also amazing. Shalom Bombay is a Indian Kosher gem in Manhattan. I highly recommend it.
Real Tasty Indian Kosher
Paula Taylor- 06/06/13
If you are in Manhattan and you like Indian food, go to SHALOM BOMBAY! I repeat, go to SHALOM BOMBAY! My mother is the best Indian cook I know, but this place might actually top her cooking. I really love their rich menu, I am a big fan of their Beef Do-Piazza/Madras, Chicken Tikka Kabab. Also, believe it or not they have more than 20 vegetarian dishes. Service was also excellent. We were in Manhattan for 5 days and ate here three days in a row. I am usually reluctant to eat in Indian food out because I feel like it is too Americanized in taste, but SHALOM BOMBAY seems to have the right ingredients for everyone. My husband, who is not of South Asian descent, loved the food there too. We can't wait to go back !!!

Shalom Bombay's catered for my 23rd birthday party and I gotta say, the food was the life of the party (thought that was supposed to be me?!)! After searching for months for the perfect catering place that would offer the kind of food I wanted (Indian kosher, a mix of vegetables and meat - comfort food basically) at a price that wasn't going to force my family to take out a second mortgage, my mom found Shalom Bombays's and I couldn't have been happier! Talking to them was super easy and they made me feel really relaxed and comforted about my food and for that because I was already stressed over my head with everything else! All in all, they really helped make my party a success and I am so thankful for his employees. The food was divine, everything from the vegetarian dishes, nans, chicken samosas to the lamb kofta curry was so good. The lamb cofta curry was amazing and was probably my favorite dish! I highly recommend Shalom Bombay's, they're an incredible Indian kosher restaurant with superb customer service and jaw-droppingly good prices!
Hi, I went there for the first time last night. The food was amazing and the service was great. The steak was better than any Manhattan restaurant that I have tasted..the owner was so nice walking around making sure everyone was happy. It makes such a difference.Hatzlacha
Quality Service with Tasty and Fresh Food
Matt Brown- 05/30/13
Simply put, Shalom Bombay blew me away. Their meals were always delivered on time and were fresh, warm and tasty. They have many food items to serve you, so you won't have to be the same everyday. I was concerned that it wouldn't be enough food (small portions), but it was exactly the opposite. I live a busy life. I am always trying to stay healthy and Shalom Bombay helps me to reach my goal . I definitely recommend Shalom Bombay for it's excellent service. Long live Shalom Bombay.
Excellent food, great price for lunch buffet (14.95), easy to get a table and takes reservations. Their buffet has tandoori chicken, two vegetable dishes, fresh salads, lentils, basmati rice, various mouthwatering chutneys, skimpy on desserts (which is fine for me for Indian food) and prompt service.. They fill waters fast, come around with tandoori often enough, as well as naan. Their vegetarian dishes are AMAZING. I never order vegetarian dishes when I eat Indian but this place makes a great vegetarian item. The Vegetable Kofta Curry I had the first time was good, and the Baingan Bharta was also great. Overall, for Indian food in an area full of it, I think Shalom Bombay is one of the best.

Last night my husband Jeff and I hosted a Sheva Brachos dinner for our niece and her new husband. We live in the Boston area and had to arrange for this from out of town, over the phone. We did not have unlimited funds but wanted to make a lovely celebration. Ofer and Mazal were so helpful, caring and creative! I knew it would be a nice affair, but when we walked into the restaurant last night, the gorgeous table they had set took our breath away. Beautiful, elegant, sophisticated, but not overdone, it was simply stunning. They even produced the fixed menu on the inside of a beautiful folded card they created with a pretty design and the names of the bride and groom on the front. There was one at each place setting. The service was friendly, professional and attentive. The entire dinner was absolutely delicious!! We started with caesar salad which was tastier than I've had in any Italian restaurant, then came vegetable soup; light and flavorful, followed by tilapia with a light almond cream sauce, fresh vegetables and garlic potatoes, all artfully presented and delicious at the same time. The desserts were simply to die for!! Tiramisu in a chocolate cup and Neopolitan pastry that melted in your mouth. To top it all off, Ofer and Mazal made us all so comfortable, even accommodating our son's desire for a different entree when we could not convince him to try the fish or the penne pasta with vodka sauce. i can't recommend this establishment highly enough, and can't wait for our next trip to Brooklyn and dinner at Orchidea!
