food is terrible. most restaurants throw away non fresh daily food but elvie's sell it again the next day.
it's pretty obivious because the meat or chicken portion looked dull and dark (it's not the sauce, i know the difference".

I ate here 4 times to see if my previous impressions were wrong. They were right. The food is over-priced and disgusting (for a lack of a better word). Not worth the time or the money.

We get takeout from here all the time - the ginger soup with taro and spinach is the best, especially if you are feeling a little under the weather. We also love the pork with spicy brown sauce. Plantains are delicious.

Having been in many different filipino restaurants accross the country, I can safely say that the food @ Elvie's Turo-Turo is palatable. Unfortunately, If you are thinking of having some friends over, you may have to settle for take home.

If you are looking for an "authentic" filipino dining experience, Elvie's is it in NYC. From the Lumpia, to the pancit, to the adobo, to the Halo-halo dessert, this small local storefront restaurant has it all. just don't expect ambiance

If it's authentic food of the Philippines that you want, Elvies Turo-Turo is by far the best for value and taste that I have found in the Metropolitan New York area.
Food served here has the quality of the best home-cooked meals I have

After returning to NYC after living overseas for a while I became turned off at the so called restaurant scene. Mostly everything in NYC is style over substance; its more important to have hip music, hot waitresses and inflated

Short of being invited to a Filipino home for dinner, Elvie's is the closest you'll get to tasting Filipino delights...such as mongo (lentil stew), chicken adobo, pinakbet, and longaniza (sweet cured pork/sausage). For the adventurous of

If you don't want to pay Manila Garden prices or are looking for homecooking you won't find at Cendrillion, Elvie's is the place to go. It will remind you of Mom's cooking, which was oftentimes MASARAP (delicious, for you non-Filipinos)
