Cons: portion too big,i can't finish everytime
Great spot. I really enjoyed my meal here, and I'm surprised it's not more packed. They have insane drink specials, like 2 for 1 beers, and free wine during dinner. It's a recession, don't people wanna save money? Try the pineapple w/ chicken. awesome
Pros: Cheap eats
1st - the lunch specials are $6.95, not $5.95 as advertsised. 2nd - I am not a picky eater I like just about everything, but the food tasted like dirty,burnt, old food. I couldn't even take more than a few bites, I have never had chinese/asian cuisine this disgusting before in my life! I want my $ back! Do yourself a big favor and avoid this place at all costs or you'll be wanting your money back as well. Hopefully this saves someone some time/money.
Pros: they provided paper plates w/my order
Cons: food tasted like garbage
We've been there during the opening period, very good food (I had the patai and my spouse the fish) - enjoyed it immensly! a very hospitable place which will continue serving lunch for just under $6. for that sum you really have to check this place out.
This place is so new, they don't even have a menu online yet! Go grab a menu out front, trust me. $5.95 lunch specials, drink specials out the ying yang. I recommend Yan Yan if you live on the east side. I had a chicken dish w/ apples...it was unreal.
I got delivery twice over the weekend too. So cheap but so good. try it out
Pros: Amazing Food & Service
Cons: No online menu.
Vietnamese food shouldn't have to be this expensive. Clearly the staff is very Americanized and with the trendy ambiance, one would have to argue the authenticity of this place at any angle. Beyond that, the food is decent but nothing spectacular.
Pros: Food, Ambience
Cons: Service, Pricey
I love this restaurant. The dishes are exotic and full of flavor. I've been to quite a few Vietnamese restaurants that prepare dishes somewhat blandly and/or too similar to Chinese cuisine. Fortunately, this isn't the case with Anh. The restaurant certainly doesn't shy away from using spices and interesting food combinations. Plus, the atmosphere is charming and the prices are modest. I certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone with a discriminating palate for great taste.
my friends and i wandered into anh when we didn't get seating at a nearby restaurant. the atmosphere is cozy and cute. they waited to get us water after they took our food orders, which took the waitstaff a long time to do. they definitely took their time getting the food out to us too, which is good and bad depending on if you have time. the food was pretty good, portions decent. we were all surprised that rice was extra. i'm asian and it's just customary that rice comes with the entree. and we all thought that the food was too salty. maybe they make it that way so you are forced to order rice.
overall, it was still a nice experience. i would go back if i were in the area again, but the extra cost for rice might make me rethink twice.
Pros: cozy, romantic, good for chatting
Cons: extra money for rice
My boyfriend and I wandered into Anh on a whim. Knowing nothing about Vietnamese food, we asked our waiter to recommend some things. Everything we tried was delicious and the prices are very good. The setting and service are also nice. Try it, it's a gem in this otherwise boring part of town.
This is probably the most "upscale" feeling Vietnamese restaurant I've been to in Manhattan. The decor was beautiful (somewhat cheesey perhaps but very clean). The lighting was very dim, making it good for romantic dinners for couples. We were there on the Sunday before Labor Day, so it was very quiet - don't know how croweded this place can get. The appetizers were tastey but very small. The entrees were good: I had the pork chops, which were pan fried instead of grilled, giving it a different taste, and my friend a delicious sea bass stew served in a clay pot. Dinner for two was expensive compared to other Vietnamese restaurants, but I guess you're paying for the ambience.
