sit on floor restaurant

Can anyone recommend a restaurant where you sit on the floor or on pillows on the floor? I know it's an odd request.

  1. Bamiyan, the Afghani restaurant, on the corner of 3rd Av. & 26thSt., has a few tables for two where you sit on the floor on cushions.

      The only place I'm familiar with is Hangawi, where you sit on pillows, but there is a well under the table. You also have to remove your shoes. Excellent vegetarian Korean food.

    2. Khyber Pass, another Afghani (St. Mark's Place) has, or used to have, pillows for seating on the floor. However, I haven't been there in years because the food the last time I went had declined (I had a few good meals there back in the '90s).
