This past weekend a group of friends were getting together for Indian food in Jackson Heights - based on some research and reviews we'd chosen to dine at Indian Taj on 74th St. However, when we got there the wait staff was pretty rude and unaccomodating - even though we had called and spoken to them beforehand about the number of people in our group (12) and they said it wouldn't be a problem for us. The buffet that was out looked really unappetizing as well. So we left and went down the street to Jackson Diner.
Jackson Diner was fantastic! The wait staff was absolutely wonderful and accomodating and the food was really delicious - we had tons of appetizers and entrees to share amongst all of us and I can't say anything negative about any of it. I'd highly recommend any of the mango drinks as well - I had the mango martini. I've seen some negative things about Jackson Diner on these boards, but we had a great experience and great food. Only thing I will say is that it was definitely pricer than the some of the other places - but in my opinion - worth it!
