Recommend take out from Gan Asia or another place?

Hi, Is it worth it to try Gan Aisa? My DH and I are going to a movie and I wanted to get us
something quick, good, and hopefully cheap to eat before the movie. Can you recommend
somthing from Gan Asia, or maybe another place in the city?

  1. Gan Asia sucks... which theater? 84th? is that why you chose Gan Asia? there are better options... (what's a DH?)

    1. i always liked gan asia, but its pretty cruddy food - also beware, if you have nut allergies, even if they say there are no nuts in a dish, theres always some nut residue.

        oh really?! That's so weird because I was always dying to try Gan Asia because I thought it was supposed to be really good. Ok then I'm open to any other reccomendtion, maybe a good burger place. (Not Dougies we hate them! ) Thanks!

            If you're going to the theater on 84th, go to Alibaba on Amsterdam and 85th(I might be off by a block or two, but it's below 86th). It's a small Israeli place with schwarma, falafel, etc...

            The only burger place on the upper west side is Kasbah(84th between Broadway and West End).

              i second the alibaba recommendation; its prob the best shwarma in the city, at good price - its especially good after a night out on amsterdam!
