I'm looking for a great Asian restaurant in Manhattan for this Saturday night. Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Japanese, etc., but we're not in the mood for sushi or Indian food. Thanks!

        Without knowing your price point...

        Ssam Bar - Still thinking about the last meal.

        Pure Thai - More of a hole in the wall, but with big flavors

        Ippudo Westside - That Akamaru Modern rocked my world at lunch time today again. Is there a better Ramen dish than this in NYC?

          Vietnamese and Indonesian can come off the list, neither is well represented in Manhattan. Give Larb Ubol a try

              Jungsik would be my first choice.( Korean-ish) gourmet
              Kyo Ya ( Japanese)
              Hirohisa ( japanese)
              Hakkasan ( Chinese)
              Uncle Boon's ( Thai)
              Indochine ( Vietnamese)
              Kittichai ( Thai-ish) nice place
              Buddakan ( Chinese/trendy)

              These are not necessarily authentic, but all have nice atmosphere and good food.
