I was very surprised at how good this little Japanese restaurant is, in the heart of Forest Hills. I ordered sashimi, and every bite was very fresh and succulent. The staff and extremely pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The restaurant is spotless, and beautiful, and that goes for their extraordinary bathrooms that one must visit! I enjoyed my meal tremendously, and... More

I really enjoyed dinner here with a friend. The atmosphere was very chill the decor was pretty and the food was really good. The lychee martinis could have been better but overall I enjoyed it. I would come back.

I like the way this restaurant is set up. The ambiance and decoration is beautiful. The food is good. I have food allergies so I can only eat certain items on the menu. Their avocado rolls were good. The foot traffic goes and comes here. One minute it is busy, then you look around and it is empty. Great for... More

We came here for dinner and drinks. It was fine, but a bit pricey. We ordered several interesting items and the bill came to $180+. This would be fine, but the food was good, but not high quality. The major issue was that we were all of a sudden told that the place was closed and it was time to... More

I like this restaurant because it has good food, attentive service, and offers a variety of Asian dishes for a reasonable price. It has a bar as soon as you enter. The place gets busy on Fridays and weekends and the wait for a table gets longer. Food is beautifully presented. I see a lot of young professionals patronizing this... More

I love the food. I don't like anything too spicy hot and while they have many of those dishes on the menu they also have a lot of other choices.

I thought I'd do a second review of this place as my wife and I came here for dinner recently and the interior has changed a bit since I reviewed MoCA some years ago. They have replaced the illuminated glass murals of Chinese maidens with illuminated glass murals of butterflies. They have also installed crescent-shaped couch seating in the center... More

MoCA is more like a midtown Manhattan restaurant than a local community restaurant in Forest Hills. The quality of food and presentation is wonderful -- although service is sometimes a little slow. If you order takeout, expect the same quality in your plastic containers. The atmosphere is dimly lit with imaginative lighting and decor. Different (in a good way) and... More

If you come here looking for your favorite Chinese, Thai food at your local takout...you won't find it here. You'll find better Asian food here kicked up a notch as Emerile would say. The food is innovative, fresh an most important yummy. Service is much better than most Chinese restaurants in Queens. Ambience has a Manhattan nightclub vibe which is... More

I've been here a few times and I did enjoy the food every time I came. The location is nice because it's accessible by subway ( F/M/R/E trains to Forest Hills/Continental Avenue station). The restaurant has outside seating in the summer, which I like very much. The menu is pretty extensive but I like the appetizers better, specially the shrimp... More
