Asian Owned Businesses in NYC


In light of the sharp increase in racist attacks on the Asian community across the world, we have put together a list of Asian owned businesses in NYC for you to support. This list of asian-owned businesses in NYC is a result of collaboration across our global community and is by no means exhaustive. There are so many more incredible businesses out there and we welcome all suggestions. We’ll be updating this guide regularly, so if you feel like sharing, please email here. We'd like to thank community members Leland Sutton and Maachew Bentley for helping us put this list together.

Her Name is Han

The space is a more than a restaurant, it’s a home away from home. With a growing number of Korean-Americans and Korean internationals working and studying in the city, Her Name is Han wanted to create a place where these busy dwellers of New York can find the perfect home-cooked meal, prepared with the goal of bringing about the flavours of their mothers’ cooking.

Using only traditional Korean ingredients and recipes to produce what we like to call “Korean soul food”, their mission was not to replicate the fancy contemporary culinary experience, but to design a nostalgic one, where guests can enjoy an authentic Korean meal, all with the same feeling of comfort as eating at home.

12 Pell

Make sure to get your trim at 12 Pell, one of our favourite barbershops and community spaces in the city.

Mint by Mai

Mint by Mai is an amazing lash extension business run by lash artist and educator, Tammy Mai. In addition to her lash services, Tammy offers educational 1:1 training to those who are looking to start their own businesses.

Jeepney NYC

Jeepney is the best Fllipino Food in NYC hands down. The restaurant, founded by Nicole Ponseca’s and Miguel Trinidad, has been at the fore-front of popularizing Filipino food in the city. It’s named after the "Jeepney", the WWII jeeps left behind by US occupation. Filipinos took the left-over jeeps chopped them up and tricked them out, creating a vibe, a mode of transport and a symbol that is uniquely Filipino. That is the essence of being of Jeepney and being Filipino - its a vibe, a mode, and a symbol of uniqueness.

Lhasa Tibetan Restaurant

The original Lhasa in Jackson Heights is one of our favourite places in the city to eat Momos. Each Momo flavour is so delicious it’s understandably difficult to choose which flavour you want to commit to. So to make it easier for you, they do great combo selections, perfect for lunch of dinner.
