On Yelp, Ava A, from Port Washington, gave Ivory Kitchen five stars and couldn’t wait to post her review.
“I'm writing this while still eating,” she said. “Ordered from here impulsively and was completely pleasantly surprised. I got the steamed dumplings and Szechuan Noodle Soup (quite spicy but I love that) and both are phenomenal. The soup is SO flavorful and both items arrived piping hot. I am having a great time.”
Hope M, from Kew Gardens, Queens agreed.
“Excellent variety of choices,” she wrote. “The food is very different than any other restaurants in town and is definitely a welcomed breath of fresh air.”
