What Our Customers Says!
This place is so unique. Brings me back to my country Dominican Republic, from their decoration to where they serve the food ( traditional pots) and to the little box... read more in which they bring you receipt ( is a box where people in DR go around shining shoes and have people put their feet on top of the box while having their supplies inside. ) The five star goes to the food but they need to improve of their service for sure. A little to slow for a tiny space restaurant where I feel like you need to be fast to bring in for revenue. Over all will be back. We had the mofonguitos : cups of fried plantains topped with ground beef. Delicious!! And for entrees: white rice, red beans , Chicharron de pollo and pollo quisado! And they have the BEST chinola juice!!!! (Passion fruit) read less6/14/2018

The... read more guy by the register suggested we get the monfongo with our chimi sliders and omg they're both soooooo gooddd!!! me and my sister still have a slider and a lot of monfongo left. lolTheir outside porch is the cutest and great for waiting. I would suggest maybe a bench or some individual chairs outside. It was about 3pm when we got there and was told this is around the best time to come because it gets even busier (probably a 40min wait for a table). Cant wait to come back and try some more things off the menu. BTW their Chinola is bangin !!! read less7/06/2018

They are now open and I came all the way from Manhattan to try the food and omgggggggggggg! For a few minutes I felt like I was in Dominican Republic eating my grandma's food.

This place is a true hidden gem!!! The restaurant's decor is so cute, however the place itself is small, so don't expect to be seated righted away after 5PM. The... read more Soursop drink is BANGIN' but limited so don't anticipate getting it after a certain time near closing.One star off for the messy disorganization in seating and waiting. Make sure you put your name on the list when you come in. I'm sure it's mainly because the size of the place, but it was kinda stressful when they weren't prompt about seating when the tables cleared up, and the other people waiting get antsy and you can tell they wanna jump on it, haha. Food was delicious! read less6/15/2018
The food is flat out awesome. I had pernil with morro and it tasted much better than more expensive restaurants that i've been too. It comes served in these cute... read more and small calderos. So the food is great. However the rest is a miss. It is just way too small of a location and people waiting for take out will bump into you constantly as your enjoying the great food. I'm sure that when there are less people the service would be just as good as the food. For gosh sakes find a bigger spot! read less2/18/2018

One of the best Dominican restaurants in the city, although apparently it's pretty new. While it took a while to be seated (place was packed around 2pm), the servers were... read more amazing.
