  1. chung ki wa definitely ain't that good at all.

    coatzingo is close enough to elmhurst (more like jheights) and is damn good.

    taste good get lots of good coverage as top malaysian in the five boroughs but I personally haven't eaten there. if I were you, I'd hit Taste Good.

        I vote for Taste Good- the food is great, and the people working there are very nice-- you might want to check Chao Thai as we just discovered this place-- we are loving trying all the Thai in Elmhurst.

        ya I won't start rec'ing a flood of places in elmhurst, esp. since the OP has narrowed down their choices but . . . good call on Pho Bac! I like that one better than Pho Bang.

        1. re: bigjeff

          so FYI Taste Good is actually CLOSED on thursday's... who knew
          walked over there with my mom and made the discovery.

          after some wondering ended up at Pho Bac again
          had a great meal
