  1. Try Bodhi Tree on 3rd ave/11th st. The last time I was there they had an awesome $7 lunch special that included 2 appetizers and an entree. It's Thai food and it's good.

    Bodhi Tree
    58 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003

    1. Rhong Tiam, on Laguardia b/w west 3rd and bleeker. Just got a Michelin Star. Although probably undeserved. Still very good, tasty, HOT thai food.

        For Chinese, I would recommend Grand Sichuan on St Marks Place, especially for the cumin beef, pork soup dumplings, wontons in red oil, mapo tofu, garlic eggplant, cold cucumbers in scallion oil, and the Gui Zhou spicy chicken.
