Respond to Review of Tiengarden
Review: My friend insisted that this place was great, so we started a 7-person bachelor party out here, and I see a lot of satisfied reviews here, so I might try it again someday, but I have to say I wasn't blown away. There were some good items, the dumplings were decent, but greasy, the crispy gluten tasted pretty good, the curry potato was probably one of my favorites, and we tried some ice cream dish and the carrot cake which were both pretty good. The Satay had a weird taste and was disappointing, the spring rolls were a little greasy, I can't remember the other dishes we tried, but they weren't very impressive. The service was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is lacking, it was a hot night and there was no a/c going which made it muggy even with the door open. I had read somewhere(supervegan?) that you can't bring in alcohol, even though they don't serve any, but my friend didn't know that and brought us all a beer and they didn't seem to have any problem with it. The prices were a little high, but most places in NY are. I'd say in NY there are many better vegan options, but if you're in the neighborhood, it's worth at least checking it out.
