Yup, love the food and decor, one of a kind in Long Island. Highly recommended for a great evening out. Love the signature "Vietnamese Salad"!

I ate there last night. It was a very cold night and although the restaurant had an outside vestibule, the swirling cold came in and filled at least 1/2 the restaurant. There was about a 20 minute wait for 2 and 1/2 hour wait for 4 at 8:30 on a Friday night. To me, its a good sign. The tables are very close together and the noise level is high. I liked the menu right off the bat. We had a hot sake which was ordinary but good. I saw that many tables were getting sushi so we started off with a tuna roll for an appetizer. It was delicious and buttery with no fishy overtones. We then had the crispy beef and the crispy jumbo prawns with leeks and ginger. I ordered a sauteed spinach with garlic but it never arrived. The beef was crispy, salty and sweet and it reminded me of Mr. Chow's. It was fried to perfection and was greaseless. The crispy prawns were not as crispy as I would have liked, but delicious, as well. Perhaps they left the shrimps in cornstarch for a second too long. The sauce was mildly spicy and the julienned leeks and ginger were a pleasant compliment to the dish. When our dishes came, I reminded the server for the spinach but it still did not arrive. I let it go. We ended the meal with chocolate ice cream. It was perhaps the best I had ever had. It was thick and rich but not overly sweet and gummy. I asked what brand it was and they informed me it was from IN THE MOOD a premium, local ice cream store in Woodbury on Woodbury Road. I would recommend going there and trying their other flavors too. They told me they sold great salads as well there. All in all, 8/10 for Haiku. Total bill: $55 including tip
