If you are looking for fantastic fare and very reasonable prices then Estihana is most definitely the restaurant for you. Owner Yamin Dayan, a Madrid native shows Jersey how steak should be cut and cooked. Spain is known for its meat selections and meat dishes and Yamin really brings that out at Estihana, one example being the Oxtail on the menu. This is the sister restaurant of Estihana in Brooklyn.
The restaurant is modern with an Asian-style feel, silky wooden tables line the restaurant with a sushi bar upon entrance. Yamin's favorite and the house specialty is the Mongolian Style Steak in a Garlic Brown Sauce. Another fabulous mouth-watering cut is the Aged Rib Eye. Estihana ages its own meats and cooks them to juicy perfection. The Rib Eye is accompanied by grilled Zucchini and the option of roasted, mashed or french fried potatoes. For those who do not favor meat on the menu, there are over two dozen sushi rolls that are innovative and tasty. Appetizers include the infamous Shredded Crispy Beef, Asian Chiucken Noodle Soup, Stuffed Jalapenos with Kani, Spicy Tuna, and Spicy Salmon in a spicy sauce.

With food so good, the clean-cut, quick-service atmosphere makes this restaurant the complete package. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly with a true love for the food at this fine establishment, especially Yamin who is very accommodating to all requests.
Now with the seasons changing, this is the perfect time to try the warm flavorful soups on the menu such as the comforting French Onion Soup served with a crispy Crostini or the light and home-like-taste of the Chicken Dumpling Soup in a Chicken Broth. Lastly, don't forget to bring your favorite bottle of wine to pair with your savory meal as Estihana is BYOB.
The food was delicious and the service excellent. They are now open Motzaei Shabbat and you do not have to bring your own wine. I definitely recommend the Asian sampler. This was a wonderful dining experience!
