Lovely milk tea and a nice spare small dining room with 13 chairs. It has counter service that is very polite and friendly. I had one of the Taiwanese soups and it was delicious.

The food is ok and the early morning service is polite and cheerful. The menu is an Albany lunch menu - no surprizes. All the service items are paper and plastic, which indicates complete ignorance of our current environmental situation.

I went to the Albany restaurant and tasted the mild patty and the oxtail. Both were delicious! The service is very casual - even though I ate in the restaurant I was served in an aluminum tin usually for takeout, with plastic fork and spoon. The staff was cheerful, polite and efficient. The drink was served from the bottle with no glass. The mild patty had all the right flavors to make you want to order a couple more. The oxtail was perfectly tender and rich with a gravy that flavored the peas and rice. The plantains provided a sweet contrast to the savory meat. I will revisit again to try more of their menu.

Although here in Albany we are experiencing a burgeoning burger business scene, it's not terribly impressive. I find myself paying more and enjoying it less. BurgerFi is a recent addition and offers ok burgers. They have several kinds of combinations including a breakfast all day burger with bacon and egg. The maple syrup is a nice touch. The burgers are on the small size, which is better than serving sandwiches so big that almost no one can finish them. The fries come in over-large portions - and really, what can you do with leftover fries? The fresh squeezed lemonade is more sugar than lemon. The spartan surroundings reminds you that you are in a cheap eats place, although you can sit outside on a nice patio and watch rt. 9 traffic if you like too. It's new and clean, and if cookie-cutter restaurants are your favorite you will like this - otherwise visit your current favorite burger place and really enjoy yourself.

I went early one evening and there was only one staff person to wait on all the tables, so as it got busy the service became slower and slower for everyone. I ordered the green curry with pork and it was fabulous! It was a large serving and I had to abandon it because after being at the restaurant for an hour and a half I had to leave and the staff was nowhere in sight for about 10 minutes. I stood at the counter, finally paid my bill and was able to leave. If you have no concerns about time, this could be a really tasty treat!

A group of friends met there recently and enjoyed a couple pitchers of good beer, wings, mozzarella sticks and the last flat bread pizza of the evening - hey, it's a tavern - we wanted tavern food!!! The wings were made spicy with black pepper - a twist on the Frank's hot sauce classic - I really enjoyed them but my friends wanted the Frank's hot sauce kind. The flat breat pizza was very tasty - although who lets the pizza run out by 7:00 in the evening? We did have to tell ourselves that we were eating "FLATBREAD" pizza, because it wasn't the real thing, even though it was good. The raspberry melba sauce cut the muster - not too syrupy and not too tart. The chef is thoughtful about the tavern classics and I'd like to go back and do a little bit more tasting through the menu.

I've tried this place several times because I really want to like it, but I can't. They agree totally with me about the way a burger should be made and the taste they produce by searing it perfectly is really delicious. They have some very interesting wings with great flavor. Unfortunately that's where my appreciation of what they are doing ends. The fries are frozen, served in waaaaayyy to big portions and over-seasoned. The service items are compliant with the new standard in low-class, and I detest looking down onto my aluminum half cookie sheet to see a piece of paper flooded with grease and juice from my burger. The yogurt is meh. The interior is tomato red with dark gray and produces a profound feeling of depression. I think getting a burger or wings for takeout may make for a good experience, but trying to stay there and have a full meal has so far been a downer.
