Fresh and dependable Vietnamese in Chelsea, Omai is one of the top rated restaurants for this type of cuisine in all of Manhattan.
The green papaya salad with shrimp, dried beef, roasted peanuts and aromatic herbs, as well as the duck salad tossed with cilantro, daikon and pickled carrots, are both strong representations of the dynamic flavors that make Vietnamese food so delicious.
The restaurant turns out some great seafood dishes, and the sauteed chicken with spicy lemongrass sauce is a winner.
