Glatt kosher restaurant in Forest Hills, Rego Park or Kew Gardens, NY

Wasn't sure whether to post here or on the more general Kosher board, but picked here, since the location I need is rather limited. An Orthodox client from out of the country wants to take a colleague, my colleague's wife and me out to dinner this Thursday evening, somewhere in the local area. There will be 6 people altogether. I know there are restaurants on Queens Boulevard and on 108th Street, but have never eaten in any of them and don't know which are Glatt kosher and have decent food. I haven't been given any guidance as to type of food or price range, so I can't include that info here. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Definitely post this on the Kosher board - you will will get recommendations any where in the NYC area as well the US and world - other sources to check would be http://shamash.org/kosher/ a searchable site of kosher restaurants along with reviews but be warned some of the listings might be outdated or http://www.koshertopia.com/ another site dedicated to the NY area -

      Hapisgah is very popular with all the Israeli's and conservatives in the area---food used to be alot better there, it's gone downhill a bit from where it was...somewhere along the way, they changed their falafel--and it's not so green anymore--it's sort of pricey for what it is--but the falafel is still okay--their hummus is good, and their baby chicken kebab is good--steaks are ok--fried spicy eggplant salad very good--it's a comfortable atmosphere and menu is diverse enough to please all tastes--veg to meat eaters...

      Another place to consider would be Colbeh but I haven't been to the main street location in ages, and I'm not sure if they are still there because it's not listed as a location on the site for colbeh, but it is listed when you do a search--so maybe call them..anyway, Persian glatt kosher--there's one in little neck if you want to travel a bit.....

      I'm sure they would be happy at Hapisgah, it's a popular spot--
