Thyme in Roslyn village...great little house on a pond, wonderful, food, wonderful service and owners. We were looking to have a party there, alas too small, but she gave my wife and I FULL MEALS to try. Really amazing (even the chicken my wife got), and the lemon tart is one of the best desserts I ever had. http://eatoutlongisland.com/menus/thy...

Great Neck has some good Asian spots. Wild Ginger in the Waldbaum's shopping center is always good. Elaine's Asian Bistro, on Bond Street (parallel to Middle Neck Rd. one block to the east) is a also very good, with a Long Island meets Tribeca over the top decor, if a little pricey (note that pricey for Asian food is a relative concept).
I also like Pancho's on Grace Avenue for Tex-Mex.
I think it's worth the trip. The decor is really strange, although I give them credit for trying to do something different in Great Neck. I think the Mongolian Lamb is very good (sweet, cripsy lamb and scallions), and I like the Singapore noodles. The yaki sticks are also good. The best part, though, is that they have an appetizer of three mini burgers, which is perfect for one of my daughters who claims to not like Asian food (I prefer to think of this as a temporary fault of hers, rather than an actual food preference).
