The Door
If you find yourself in Queens check out this place. It is 5-10 min drive from St. Johns University. There is a take out part and a sit down area. Takeout takes forever; dont order when hungry. The restaurant is small but nicely decorated clean and neat. Everything on the menu tastes great, is authentic, yet still creative. For example they serve escovich chicken. The waiters and waitresses are very good too.

Club Nakisaki
Its 5-10min drive from Hofstra University and Nassau Coliseum.
Is a Chinese Jamaican restaurant/club. The top floor is a restaurant and bar and the bottom floor is a night club. The club is only open Fridays and Saturdays. You can rent for special occassions. They serve both traditional dishes and exotic combinations. You have the choice of eating at the buffet or ordering from the menu. The buffet is ok and you get more for your money and stomach. However the menu has more wonderful combinations that you may want to try. You will need a doggie bag though. Service here is excellent.
