Amaze 82 on the Upper West Side prides itself on delectable Asian fusion food and wallet-friendly prices, with a menu that bursts at the seams with cultural cuisine from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, China and Japan. Its interior verges on elegant minimalism — black tables and chairs are backed by bare brick walls and illuminated by wall lamps.
This restaurant offers a great deal for lunch on weekdays: only $10 for a choice of entrée, appetizer and sake or wine! Snack on some edamame while you peruse the menu.
I loved the Green Curry Chicken. It was served in all its steaming glory — a fresh and colorful medley of vegetables is drenched in coconut-infused green curry among tender slivers of chicken and served with a small bowl of white rice.
