Got both cherry and lime. Perfect Italian ice. Reminds me of the stuff we used to get in Philly as a kid. Service was quick. Highly recommend.

Located in Corona section of Queens it’s a bit off the beaten path but the restaurant is worth the trip. Make reservations well in advance the place is always packed. The food is outstanding. Healthy portions are provided. The service is old school and professional. Nice wine list.

I've been here twice now, once for new years and once with my parents for a special dinner. Both times the food was outstanding and the service was quick and friendly. Definitely not the cheapest restaurant in JH but the food is worth it, especially if you're in the mood for fine dining but don't feel like heading into Manhattan (or paying Manhattan prices).

I got the black linguini with seafood the first time there and the braised beef with risotto the second time. Both were so good and the portions were large enough for me to take home a second meal. This place is a high end gem on the very diverse Northern Blvd.

We were well aware of this place even before arriving in the neighborhood. We went around 11 AM on a Monday for an early light/late breakfast. Was not too busy and we were seated right away (although things picked up in the restaurant later on).

Of course we got the showcase soup dumplings, but we also got scallion pancakes and vegetable dumplings. The soup dumplings were the "soupiest" either of us have had, certainly at least in North America. The vegetable dumplings were good in their own right, also steamed, but it made us feel a little less guilty by letting us eat greens. The scallion pancake were fine.

Be sure to have cash, and use the various sauces and vinegar to jazz up your dumplings.

Sripraphai Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By Manuel P - Woodside, New York

This restaurant has a huge menu, and I do suggest you be careful when adventuring with new flavors and meals. Spicy foods are very spicy, even when they reduce the spice, and some fish dishes have a lot of bones within them. Everything tastes wonderful, and when I go with the family I often end up also eating the spicy food that a friend did not think would be so spicy... :-) My recommendations: the sauteed pork is wonderful, as is the green mango salad, and the different variation of Pad Thai are worth having on repeat visits.

its seems a bit unorganized,very small space to have two lines with walk space in between....mall table area not a guarantee to get a table have to wait on line to get a table,no room for the line when it gets long,people at the tables what to stay and talk deep conversations over pastries and coffee that means tables stay full for sometime before it will be your turn on a long line...evenings and weekends it can be a bit frustrating especially if you are with children,make reservations a must! time it exactly after a movie if you attending one....if you want to go without reservations go at a down time,like mornings, or mid afternoon perhaps or us just order out and eat like no one is watching guiltfree,as far of the pastries blondies are delicious,fudge brownies,strawberry shortcake is good,plain cheese cake,coffee delish but all a little pricey,takes good patience to wait but line goes outside,not good on a hot day or cold day standing outside,it needs better organization,maybe get a bigger place with more tables,i have to call it as i see and experienced.....enjoy how you can LOVE

My husband and I had lunch at London Lennie's on a Saturday afternoon. The lunch special I had was one of their specialties, Battered and fried fish and shrimp with french fries, all delicious. An individual loaf of bread came with pats of butter and cole slaw came with the meal as well.

It's been ages but we were rolling by and my husband just pulled in the parking lot.
I forgot how good their food is. The burgers are always the best but I got nachos this time and
they were really exceptional. Service is great. The place is clean and everything
goes smoothly....relaxing diner vibe! It won't be so long between visits next time!!!

This atmosphere is so nice , clean , fresh , and the bath room is also big. But it is really sad for this mood, some customer's way of eating is dirty. They breaks the atmosphere.
