Lunch Recs (from Pa Stn to Times Sq)

5 of us are taking the train up from Baltimore for a meeting at a Times Sq Hotel. We intend to walk from the station up to the meeting and would love to enjoy lunch at an Asian restaurant of some sort--Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese or Japanese...etc along our way for $25 or less/person. Any suggestions for us?

  1. You cand find some stuff here:, though it may be a bit low-end for what you want.

    I like Sushiya on 56th btwn 5th and 6th, though it may be a bit out of your way. Also, the downstairs cafe (Tea Box Cafe) at Takaskimaya dept store on 5th and 54th is excellent and somehow not that $$.

      Jel212, Both those recommendations are well north and east of the o.p.'s geographical parameters, i.e., b/t Penn Sta. & Times Square.

      tora, Most of the good Asian restaurants are north of Times Square. Your best bet is "Little Korea," right near Penn Sta. One possibility is Kang Suh, on the corner of B'way & 32nd. But there are many others.
