Cheap chow around midtown (57th and 7th) for dinner?

Dinner for two, both on pretty strict budgets (under $15/entree) with veggie options. Decent amosphere would be nice, would like a sit-down place. Open to all types of cuisine.

    Roberto Passon (Italian) on 9th ave. & 50th has some good pasta dishes. Pumpkin ravioli very good. It's crowded pre and post theater but at 8 pm, much better.

      La Bonne Soupe, the sweet French bistro, on 55th, b/t 5th & 6th, has lots more on the menu than just good soups.

          Ramen is not a vegetarian food- as it uses meat stock. You might be able to make a dinner from the vegetarian side dishes though.

          Whym on 9th Ave bet. 58th and 59th. Stick with the entree salads.

            Topaz for thai food. I've only had it for lunch.
