Looking for Ethnic Restaurants (Middlesex/Monmouth)

A group of us like to try various ethnic restaurants, the more unusual the better. We live in an area bounded by Edison, Old Bridge, Jamesburg, and Toms River, so something within that area is better than something further away.

We've been to Chim Pun Callao, the Filipino place in Middletown (now gone), the Russian Restaurant in East Brunswick, Makeda, and various "Asian fusion", Indian, Mexican, and Central American restaurants. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

      2. Eleeper, check out the following thread where the same question was asked. Some of the responses are almost two years old so if you see some place you're interested in give them a call to make sure they're still there!

              I definitely agree on Krakowiak (and I also prefer it to Polonia).
