Benny's Lung Sheng Restaurant
Posted by Roccoz18 on 01/30/2014
Looking at other reviews, you would think Benny's would be decent Chinese food. What I found was rude workers in a filthy restaurant (there are two tables set up with broken chairs ) with sub-par food. Most of what was being served up here was chicken wings with french fries. I ordered chicken with mixed vegetables, an egg roll, and wonton soup. The vegies were okay, but swimming in a greasy sauce. The egg roll was broken and therefore had a pint of oil, and the wonton soup was served in a tasteless, clear broth. Just another non-descript Chinese take-out. Nothing even close to special.

I have lived in the neighborhood for years and I have always enjoyed the food especially for the price. The teenagers from the surrounding projects make it difficult to go into the store but if you order over the phone it is worth it , the delivery is quick and the food is good and hot. Would recommend

Lived here for 5 years and ordered twice from here. The clientele make it hard to enter the place and make it up to the counter. The last time I went the local youth were throwing chicken wings at each other. I shall pass. I walk an extra block to amstradam and eat at the place across from the mamma pizza joint.

I ordered in from this place and the food is really not good at all. The rice was old and hard and the dish had no flavor. Plus delivery service was poor. They left the coke out of my order and, when I called up to ask them to bring it, they told me I live too far for them to deliver it - that I would have to wait until the next day! The food is cheap, but you have a lot of options on the UWS - and this place is just not worth it.

First, take note, they don't accept credit cards, which is a turn-off. The actual "restaurant" is usually inhabited by a bunch of loud obnoxious teenagers, so it is nice they serve your takeout order rather quickly. I like that I can get a small order of General Tso's w/o out any rice for $5. It's not as bad as some places, but it's not great either. They don't seem to charge tax either. The cheesesteak roll sounds good, but it's not. Also, the egg rolls I've had have tasted stale.. but I've seen them make them fresh right there, so I don't know how you f'up an egg roll.. but, go figure. Also, it's not on their menu, but you can order 2 liter bottles of soda from them.

I just moved to this neighborhood a couple of months ago and I've already found my chinese food staple for the area. The food is pretty good all around (especially the fried rice) and the delivery is fast enough that the food comes piping hot. Recommended for sure
