In the same vein as Sapori d'Ischia...

My wife and I are new to Queens (been living in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island for over 13 years). Anyway, we discovered Sapori d'Ischia in Woodside. And what a great find! It made me fall in love with Queens even more.

So, does anyone else have any great Queens Restaurants Must Eats? Not talking Italian, but any cuisine...

  1. If you like Thai food, Sripraphai in Woodside has been widely recommended throughout the Chowhound forums. Some claim that it's the best Thai food in all of New York. Also, if ethnic food is appealing to you, Queens is the place to be. To begin with, just do a quick search under Jackson Heights or Astoria and you will only touch the tip of the iceberg as far as "must try" restaurants go.

    1. Welcome to "The Beginning"
      How about a chesseburger @ Donovan's.
      Woodside or Bayside.
      Their French Onion Soup is a good starter along with a black&tan.

          Is that Mina's Kitchenette in Jamaica, NY?

          1. re: yongjoo

            I think stuartlafonda may be referring to Spicy Mina in Woodside. I believe its Bangladeshee food?

        2. De Mole in Sunnyside - some of the best Mexican in all of NYC. Shredded goat tacos - amazing!

          1. Hi Yong - two of my favorite restaurants in queens are DB Wine Kitchen - in Forest Hills - and 718 in Astoria. Both are nice, upscale (but totally casual) restaurants, where I've never had a bad meal.
