    Lan Sheng, Cafe China, and Szechuan Gourmet are also close by.

    Talent Thai Kitchen

    There are also two banh mi places nearby. Baoguette and Luu’s Baguette.

      How is the Luu's Banh Mi?

      I've had their buns, which I don't think they make, and they're not always fresh. I've been scared to try the rest.

        Haven't tried it yet and can't compare to, say, Baoguette. The buns sound a little alarming if they are not fresh. What kind of buns are they?

        1. re: kathryn

          Pineapple, coconut, sometimes pork buns, etc.
          When they're fresh they're fine.

      Are you also interested in Japanese/Sushi?

        +1 on Phoenix Garden.
        They rush you a bit, but still like the Cantonese dishes.

          If I am not mistaken Phoenix Garden is BYOB and Cash only.

      2. Mad for Chicken is a few blocks away.

        1. Great Sichuan on 3rd Ave. and 26th St. would work for you. There's a long thread here -

          I only ate there once (so many restaurants, so little time) but I liked it fine.
