Good Sushi in Monmouth county? Where do you go?

Morning MGZ! We went last night and everyone really enjoyed... even me! I had fried shrimp dumplings.. two orders please since everyone else had to try mine! Seaweed salad, and sauted scallops all appetizers others had to taste too! I was very happy with my food! . My family ordered rolls, and sashimi unfortunately I asked on the way home what they had and have forgotten since them.. but they liked everything a lot! We all said we would happily be back with thanks MGZ!
My kids like Avenue East in Cranford for Sushi, and Mambo Sushi I think they said??? We were told it would be a 40 minute wait for sushi, so we ordered apps and the wait went fast. A great meal much appreciated! After reading your link I am glad Kazu moved too!!

Thanks so muchMGZ, Coldbeer and Bgut. If my son gives me an extra hug we just might try both places in the future!
Ironically tonight we will be in Freehold so I am leaning towards Kazu. Thanks for asking Corvette Johnny. Yumi sounds like I might even enjoy it! I really appreciate all your help, much thanks!

Sahara in Mattawan on 34

CatLadyJan, I am so glad you liked it too! I don't know how long they have been there, but I am so glad I finally tried it. It is so much more than I expected when I looked at it from the outside. I never expected to see a restaurant! I thought perhaps a couple of tables. Then I was really happy when I tasted the food. Glad you wrote about the hot sauce too, my friend loves spicy food and we never even thought to ask. Next time I will try the chicken!

Sahara in Mattawan on 34

Hcentro I just read your post and just returned from Sahara 34. You are absoulutely right! Deliciious and well worth a visit! My friend and I went for lunch. We both love Gyro and each of us ordered it. The gentleman who probably owns the place was our waiter and he was delightful. The hummus, tzatzik and Greek salad with stuffed grape leaves were quite good. After we shopped in the market for interesting spices. It is a restaurant with about 10 tables set with table cloths and a market next door. Very comfortable clean place with a very friendly and kind host who made us feel most welcome. After we ate we shopped in the market for all sorts of spices and the gentleman helped us learn about the various flavors used in Middle Eastern cooking. It was a really nice experience and I look forward to going back many times. The phone is 732 566 2225 He is open 7 days a week. He is located at 1008 Route 34 Pine Valley Plaza Mattawan. Right near West Lake. Really worth trying!

PS Joonjoon thanks for the encouragement!

German Food

I would love to try German food,but not sure which place you are recommending. Was it Schneiders which would be a lot easier for me than Fort Dix, so I am hoping!

Prosecco in Port Monmouth- A Great find!!

yeepat so glad you wrote! I wanted to but forgot! I went there a while ago and loved it. I was hesitant to go back due to mixed reviews. However we went again about two weeks ago and loved it just as much. I don't know why people had bad experiences, but we plan on going a lot more often. The pizza was great we had a polenta appetizer that was so good we had to order a second order! Sorry I can't remember the name of it or what else we ate, but all was delicious! Thanks for the reminder to write my already forgotten memories ! Proseco is a keeper for our family.

A very pretty place to sit outside in the warm weather not a big deal inside. The food when it is good is quite good. I loved their lentil soup. Friends of ours rave about it. We have been there three times and two out of three were good, not rave worthy but good. I think their pizza was good, but not sure if I am confusing it, but the lentil soup I do remember! It is the location you need...

What a beautiful day I am having just reading all these memories, wishing I had some of my own to add. I love the water and when I was very young my parents bought some sort of boat. Problem was we spent more time repairing it than riding in it and that is all she wrote.

Monmouth County Casual Italian suggestions...??

No we were there too early. However we plan on going back! I can't imagine people dancing there, but sweet is such a beautiful description for this place. It definitely was a lovely day for us and it was Tony and Dominic who gave it such a lovely atmosphere. So not like me to talk about a restaurant's atmosphere. I only care about good food, but this place had heart and it was just impossible not to feel good about being here. Oh and the food…!

Prosecco I just wrote a review. It sounds like just what you are looking for. The owners make it a fun place because they are so delightful and caring. I typically don't want to be bothered when eating, but these people were so warm and charming we actually enjoyed talking to them! The food is excellent and we stayed a long time talking and relaxing and stuffing ourselves with a delicious dessert! Even though we were really too full to eati it, it was a creme puff type thingie with white mouse and rasperry sauce and chocolate and oooh it was soo good! The chef loves to make desserts on the weekend and we couldn't refuse! The food was really good and we ate way far too much. We will be back!

Prosecco Italian Bistro 732 495 5900
Our family of 5 went today thank you Sockster for this find! It was a delightful meal for all of us! The pizza was outstanding, the scallops and bacon fabulous, the Mozzarella with roasted peppers and I forget what else was really really really good! Etc. Etc! My son had Frank Sinatra, seafood and pasta, we had gnocci and ravioli sorry that is all I can remember but everyone shared and everyone loved the food. The owners were warm and caring and seriously concerned about pleasing us. They could not have been more charming and gracious. The food was worth the half hour trip we made to get there. A lovely meal and yes Sockster I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it too! We will be back. I look forward to trying many different "Italaian Tappas" but will always include their fresh mozzarella! Then again, maybe the pizza too which was really really my favorite, or maybe….

Tosca?

La Cippolina in Freehold is really good. Not typical Italian I have been there several times with different people and everyone really enjoyed the dinning experience.

Reminder Jersey Shore Restaurant Week is now!

I had salmon husband had short ribs both were good but warm not hot. Service was slow… despite not being full.
I wanted to try the place, and I am glad we went. The place was lovely, the food good. I am more interested in fantastic food than beautiful surroundings. I read the reviews from here on the way home. Usually I check here first but Restaurant Week motivated me and we went. Looking forward to trying other restaurants I normally would not think of going to.

Gardenia Grill (Hazlet)

Thanks! I love Middle Eastern food and look forward to trying this place. I agree with Corvette Johnny " great food at places tucked away and out of the limelight" one of life's great pleasures! I never would have known about it without your delicious review!

VIA45 in red bank, 24oz cowboy steak

I don't know a thing about cars, but food well...
I agree with Seal. I have yet to eat anything at Via that wasn't fantastic! My husband had a steak there last week, and my daughter a few months ago. I am sorry I don't remember what they had but both loved theirs! They were different cuts of meat but each one swears theirs was the best! I had a taste of each and they were both fabulous. I don't think you can go wrong there, except for NOT getting a reservation! Enjoy!

empire szechuan?

You might try telling them you loved the braised beef and spicy pickled veggies. You can add that you are allergic to flour and can they make your food with corn starch only no flour. Do you have Celiac's Marlboro Man? At one point I thought I had it, many many years ago when it was unheard of and found lots of good websites ( forgot them sorry) which offered lots of info.
Glad you enjoyed your meal this time!
