Myself and six coworkers decided to have lunch there today.... as soon as we sat down it was downhill from there. First, the noise level is totally unbearable, don't expect to actually talk to anyone while eating. Second, appetizers

Cafetasia has a great lunch special for $7 that runs until 4pm. Fast service, (often too fast), and populated by mostly NYU students. However, their Basil Udon is excellent!!!

Terrible customer service; the waiter kept rolling his eyes at us, I lost count how many times. They got two of my friends' drink orders wrong, and were hesitant to fix them. The food wasn't special, I've had better Asian cuisine

Great menu, I would recommend every dish. I have been here at least 10 times and the service is great, really quick. Great drinks and cool atmosphere! Good date spot or group spot or even going alone and sitting at the window! Only

Pros: Great value and atmosphere, great entrees, perfect for groups

Cons: Appetizers are more on the so-so side, but you get what you pay for!

If you can get over being surrounded by NYU students, this place is a great cheap dinner spot. The dishes range from XS-XL (although the XL is actually just normal entree sized), which makes it great for sharing dishes tapas style. The

Pros: Food is good when served hot

i visited this place a few days back. the ambiance is really good, though the sitting could be a problem as it has a long table more like school cafeteria. the food was on the sweeter side but very fresh and well prepared.

This was my first time trying Thai food and I was 100% satisfied with my delicious meal! I ordered from the prix-fixe Lunch menu and what a bargain it was. I strongly suggest the Chicken and Shrimp Sumai and the Beef Massaman curry .

I heard about Cafetasia from some friends of mine at NYU. I joined them tonight for dinner and had an awesome drink, called a "Thai Mojito". I'm confident in saying that this will be a popular drink this summer due to its delicious taste

I usually order from cafetasia a lot but the last time I ordered they took more than an hour to deliver 4 blocks. I cancelled m order immediately and will probably only order on days where I am not as hungry because I can then wait longer.

Went here for a Happy Hour on Friday. Can't beat the 2 for 1 happy hour special. The bartenders understand the meaning of 'heavy on liquor, light on juice'. Get there early to grab a table, especially if you're with a group of people as
