Ethnic lunch spots on Upper West Side?

Will be in NY this weekend and am looking for a good spot for lunch on Sunday – open to ideas for any and all cuisines, as long as the quality is good.

    Indus Valley, 100th and Broadway, is a very good Indian restaurant, and last I checked, the lunch special was an excellent value. If you like Dominican-style rotisserie chicken, go to El Malecon, on Amsterdam a bit north of 97th St. I love their chicken! Some of their daily specials are also nice. Like in this weather, I could definitely go for the nice big bowl of Sopa de Pollo that they give you.

      At the risk of sounding like a broken record... I recommend Cafe con Leche, Swagat or Turkuaz.

        Awash is fantastic Ethiopian on Amsterdam and 106 or 107. Nice place as well.

          Thanks for all the good suggestions. We ended up going to Saigon Grill, a Vietnamese restaurant on Amsterdam between 90th and 91st, and had a great lunch. From the crowds, it seems to be a popular spot, and I'd definitely recommend it.
