My husband loves their chicken. We visit every time we go to New York. They have excellent portions. Their Ceviche is fantastic. It’s a small restaurant on the Upper East side but well worth the train ride from Brooklyn where my daughter lives.

This location is very small with limited seating. The food is very good, both the chicken and the steak offerings. And there is so much you will want to share. The service is good, not super friendly or attentive.

I’ve never been to the restaurant. Only delivery. Cheap huge portions of delicious juicy roast chicken, beans, tons of sides. More than enough for two people plus leftovers.

You MUST try the great JALEA which to better explain it is a wonderful concoction of lemony and red onion drenched battered sea stuff like calamari, fish, shrimp. It comes in mountain like shape shocking at first. The small Jalea is enough for 3 people...More
