New York City is home to many of the finest restaurants in the world, and one of our greatest assets is the plethora of fine eateries serving up Asian cuisine. From Koreatown to Chinatown to Thai in Times Square, here are some of our favorite finds.

Kristalbelli NYC

Located in Koreatown, Kristalbelli showcases the full range of authentic and robust Korean flavors — and also spotlights the delicate aspects of Korean cuisine. They boasts an utterly fresh, tasty, and clean experience, with only highest quality ingredients cooked atop each table on smokeless convex crystal grills.

Bangkok House dumplings

For Thai food near Times Square, enter Bangkok House. The reasonably priced cuisine has exotic flavors that will challenge your taste buds and please your appetites. We recommend ordering a few entrées that can be shared easily with a group. The Restaurant Row staple’s lunch and dinner prix-fixe menus are very popular with the work and theatre crowds, and remain open until 11:30pm — so you can still grab a bite after the show.

Chinatown is about restaurants; there are more Chinese eating places on any one block there than in most middle-sized American cities. Huge palatial spots compete with tiny take-outs with two or three tables. You can put down your magnifying glass and stop your detective work when you reach Shanghai Cuisine and try their authentic Chinese dishes and soup dumplings (pictured below).

From the moment you enter Tribeca’s Ninja New York and are greeted by the staff clad in jet-black Ninja ensembles, you’ll know you’ve entered another dimension. A recreation of a hidden 18th-century Japanese ninja village, it’s a one-of-a-kind, very entertaining dining experience combined with high-end contemporary Japanese cuisine.
