Bangkok House is a culinary oasis for flavor-rich fine Thai dining at most affordable prices. Nestled on historic Restaurant Row, as you walk in you will be greeted by charming, authentically clad Thai waitresses who provide themselves on fine service with a smile. There are special lunch and dinner Prix Fixe Menus (including soup, salad, appetizer, entree, and dessert) as well as many house spe...cialties. We are very popular for pre-theatre dining and are open 7 days a week starting at 11:30 am, and the kitchen stays open til 11:30 pm for post-theatre dining as well. City Guide Magazine describes us as "Delicious Thai food to die for at extremely reasonable prices!"

There's beef, and then there's Kobe beef, which is served up by 212 Steakhouse. Head to this chic Midtown East eatery for an unrivaled dining experience featuring authentic Japanese Kobe beef or seafood, complete with fresh salads and delicious sides, fabulous desserts complimented with an extensive wine list from all around the world for affordable prices.

"They do a nice job with the Island/nautical theme. Service can be a tiny bit slow, but I liked the sports bar super-wide screen (and multiple) TV's. Good beer specials. Excellent place to watch a game."

Consistently voted as one of Hawaii's best restaurants, James Beard award-winning Chef Alan Wong uses the freshest locally grown produce and the bounty of the Pacific Ocean to create local favorites with a contemporary twist. Inspired by the unique ethnic influences found in Hawaii today, his menu reflects Hawaii's cultural diversity of its people, traditions, and lifestyles. "Taste Hawaii."

"Wonderful food, great service. This will always be my first choice for dining in Honolulu. (Note, skip the 'butter course' it's just butter and what is the put on the table ordinarily is more than fine.)"

When Shinbashi originally opened in 1974 waitresses wearing traditional clothing served the then novel sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. Shinbashi became popular amongst Japanese businessmen visiting New York and the restaurant was reviewed in the New York Times by Ruth Reichi in 1998 calling it "venerable Japanese." The new incarnation is following in the tradition of attracting Japanese guests but does so in a modern setting. The restaurant remains streamlined and cleanly lit so as to showcase the food. Quality of fish and presentation are of the highest standard and it is this attention to detail that is carried into the attentive service. Shinbashi offers an environment for you to appreciate your meal at the pace you choose and the space to enjoy your conversation.

"There are several very good Japanese restaurants in the area, this is clearly one of the best. Prices are not cheap, but not over the top either. Food is super-fresh and well prepared. [Service can be a bit slow during the busiest part of the lunch hour.]"

"For Yankee fans, and baseball fans. Great looking restaurant. Excellent place for a meat-eaters lunch. Pricey, but the specials are worthwhile. (If you can't get a table at the Yankee Stadium location, this is a very good alternative.)"
