Best food in Astoria?

What do you all consider to be the best of the following in Astoria?

Thai Food
Greek Food
Italian Food
Mexican Food

Here is what I think, I have not tried every place but from the paces I have tried here they are:

Best Sushi: Go wasabi on 30th ave, I know they have a place in the ditmars area which I have yet to try.

Thai: Thai pavilian on 30th ave between 37-38

Pizza: Sac's on broadway in the late 20s/early 30th

Crepes: the only place I know that have crepes. broadway in the 30th in the corner. Its fairly new have been there for around a year-I do miss Everest but in a way I am glad go wasabi took their place

italian food: this is also a tough one; I have yet found an italian place that is to die for. I have tried over 25 italian restaurants in Astoria. I guess I like Rizzo (not to be confused with the pizza store)

Mexican food: steinway and northern blvd. forgot the name but the food is yummy

Greek: to me there are 2 type of greek places, the fast-food gyro joints and the more authentic sit down restaurants. For gyro I must say Opa Opa! on 31st street and for sit down restaurant I like Karyatis and Telly Taverna

and for the worse place ever to eat: Zodiac cafe. I know, i know people rarely go there to eat but once I went to see a performance and got the munchies and ordered spanokopita (spiniach pie) and it tasted like someone spilled paint on it.
