Inexpensive Restaurants in the Theater District?

Any suggestions as to inexpensive Italian, Greek, Fish and Asian restaurants in the theater district?

  1. Head over to 9th avenue. My favorites in the area are Uncle Nick's and Pure Thai Cookhouse.

    1. Wondee Siam, the original one, and stick to the so-called "Secret Thai" menu and the actual Thai-language menu, if your waiter doesn't deny its existence. Ask for everything very spicy and not sweet, if you can take it, and then you're likely to get very tasty food.

      1. Cafe China and Szechuan Gourmet are a few blocks away from the theater district.

          Or if you you really want to go cheap-as-cheap-can-be, then the mix up the above suggestions and go to China Gourmet along 8th Ave.
          If you do go, just make sure to wear the stuff that you won't plan on wearing again until after they're washed.
