A new Indian/Chinese restaurant is scheduled to open on 41st Street.
Anise Fusion, located across the street from the Butcher Block, is a joint venture put together by John Huang, from Sunnyside, and Peter Chang, from Woodside. Both men are Indian immigrants of Chinese extraction.
Anise Fusion is expected to open on July 28. It will primarily be a takeout and delivery business; however, the restaurant will have five tables for in-house dining.
The men are still working on finalizing the menu. For further details, visit www.facebook.com/anisefusion
thank you kamal and jessica for stopping by and trying out the food
thank you kathy & russ for the comments, we hope to see you soon.
This may be a small restaurant, but it sure does have some DELICIOUS FOOD!! OMG!!! Was it ever GOOD!!!! But, then, anytime you have a family owned business and Grandma is passing on some of her secret recipes’ from the old country… Something I’d bound to be goof!!!
Anise fusion is now open for service, please stop by and try out the food. and leave a feed back, to help me to make my customer happy. thank you
Even if this restaurant was in “direct competition with Tangra,” I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. Competition is a usually a good thing for everyone involved, so we should welcome it, unless of course we are overrun with too many of this or that type of shop. Then again, the market usually evens that out. We have so many pharmacies, Thai restaurants, fast-food shops, already but clearly if people are shopping them.
Years ago I hear the statistic that convenience stores needs about 300 families to survive. In the suburbs you see them strategically lcoated every 4-5 miles down main thoroughfares. If we apply this statistic to densely populated urban areas like our community, it’s clear why we see so many of the same type of shop over and over- 300 families can easily be on one or two blocks!
Thank you for the explanation – it had me dumbfounded. See you next week!
hello [email protected], vegetarian duck is imitation duck meat make with soy bean.
They have their menus out in front! I picked one up. On it confirms the Grand Opening on July 28th. Some variety from the usual take-outs, decent prices. Not sure what “Vegetarian Duck” really means though. 🙂
They also have a Lunch Special from 11-3:30pm for $5.25.
I’m really hoping for their being a quality takeout joint.
Welcome and thank you for opening a “high-end” Indian/Chinese take out/delivery restaurant. I’m looking forward to frequenting your establishment!!! Quality Indian/Chinese is worth the few extra $ – even during tough times.
Thanks everyone for your support and will make sure all my customer are happy. Sorry about the gluten free soy sauce, but will try to look around or maybe try something to suit your taste. Peace
Wonderful Peter! Will certainly be stopping by!!
Do you have a gluten free menu? I found even most soy sauce has wheat in it.
Looking forward to trying the sesame chicken.
thanks Raquel, we will see you soon thanks again
i will try out the food, and support all the restaurant of Sunnyside.
Thanks kamal you won’t be disappointed
Hi Peter, thanks for stepping up to the plate and saying hello and introducing yourself and the restauant. If I cannot make it to your new place I will call and order take o9ut once you deliver. I love your great positive attitue. I wish you the best of luck.
hello everyone, we are not competing anyone and don’t feel scare to try out the food. beside tangra, we are just a take out restaurant with a few dine in. we(anise fusion) would like sunnysider to come try the food and about atmosphere, we still telling everyone it is a take out restaurant with a high end so we don’t want anyone to feel it is a regular chinese take out restaurant like every take out restaurant and about raqual feel free to contact me or john to see the kitchen. we will be happy to help you.
i love to try new restaurant. i will go and try.
Hi Krissi. You are right about tangra but it looks tiny, no atmosphee which tangra has and just to buy food and leave is not a complete meal. Alot of people looks for an atmosphere when they eat. Plus how is the food and prices as well.
Who is going to be the first person to go in a taste the food and report back to us.
We’re not paying to eat in THEIR kitchens.
I don’t know how they all stay in business. BTW: on WOR this morning they were talking about how arbitrary the Health Dept is – best comment: I would like to see THEIR KITCHENS!
While I appreciate any new business in Sunnyside, isnt this just in direct competition with Tangra?
Unfortunately, Roger is probably correct. Never to early to grease the wheel.
Rodger the shrubber you are so adorable..why not make up a fund for them in advance of them so we are always ready for them. You a funny funny man
Good luck and don’t forget to make a generous donation to the health inspectors’ retirement fund.
