Restaurant Week in Hackensack

 About a dozen Hackensack restaurants will be offering discounts Friday through Dec. 13, in what is being billed as Restaurant Week.

Unfortunately, the discounts vary -- unlike the $24.07 lunch and $35 dinner during Manhattan's twice-yearly Restaurant Weeks -- and some popular restaurants are not taking part in the promotion.

Examples of the discounts are the $19, three-course dinner at Cafe Arabica, a Middle Eastern restaurant, and the $10.95, three-course meal at Galapagos. Mangos Restaurant's three-course dinner special will be $25.  Other restaurants, including Wondee's Fine Thai Food & Noodles, will be offering a second entree at half price.

Pollos Mario, Greek Island Grill and Bohemia re among the restaurants not taking part in the promotion. Full details are available at the following link:


  1. I haven't been to Pollo Marios in over 2 years and don't plan on going back. The place is really overpriced and the food quality seems to have gone down.

  2. Really? We went there two to three years ago and I did a budget restaurant review of the place, but haven't been back. That's too bad about the quality and prices. Do you like Thai food? We love Wondee's.

  3. I do like Thai, my wife doesn't like it as much, I also like Vietnamese a lot. Where exactly is Wondee's?

  4. Wondee's is on Main Street, on the block just past the library. You can turn right at the library and enter the driveway on your left to the lot behind Wondee's, which is at the end, and enter through a rear door. There's a sign. For Vietnamese, Saigon in Englewood and Mo Pho in Fort Lee are owned by the same Vietnamese woman and the food is terrific.You can just Google the names for addresses and so forth. At Wondee's, we usually order a whole fish, steamed or fried. She also serves lamb and shrimp.
