Since moving to the UES I've tried a couple of Chinese places and this place is far better than China Fun or Asia Grill. I don't order anything too out of the ordinary stuff so for me this place was the best I've has so far. Got the sesame chicken and fried rice which were both very good. Actually, come to think of it, the sesame chicken was the best I 've has in a while.

For those of you who know what Ma-Po tofu is, this place should win an award on 'Worst' Ma-Po tofu. So dissapointing that I will not try any other dishes.

Those who rave about this place like Americanized Chinese food. This place is not authentic at all. If you like Hunan beef, shrimp and broccoli, that kind of things, you will be alright. But if you want the real things, you will be disappointed.

I'm not sure why all of these reviews are so good, maybe I haven't been ordering the right food. I've gotten delivery from Evergreen a few times, and I have never been impressed. The food is bland and tasteless, so much so that my friends and I went to the store and bought sauce to put over our food. That's a little sad. I've basicly given up trying to find good Chinese on the UES.

Fresh ingredients,The best eggrolls, great menu, nice atmosphere are just a few of the reasons to dine here. Yes, it is a little more expensive then some of the other chinese restaurants in the area,but it is well worth it for the quality of the food. If you are looking to order in, the food comes in 10 minutes. I am always amazed that they can cook it that fast. Also, the people who work in the front are the nicest people of any restaurant in the area. I assume they own the place. They treat you so nice weather you are ordering one dish to go or are eating in. I can't wait to go with a big group so i could sample more of the food and also can't wait to check out the dim sum brunch.

I am convinced that no one has ever actually dined in a Chinese restaurant. My reasoning is based on the fact that Chinese food is usually just what a group orders when they can't agree on anything else: Moo Shoo something, dumplings, fried rice, egg/spring/vegetable rolls and a dish that is obscenely soaked in sugar and sesame seeds. In other words, rather than please one group, just sate everyone with fried, unidentifiable food(?). Evergreen is the perfect rebuttal to my argument. The food is of good quality. The selection goes beyond pork/beef/shrimp fried whatever. While pricing might be a little higher than normal, let's face it - you live on the UES; nothing here is "normal." Order from Evergreen and enjoy. You won't drop on your knees and praise them... but you won't have to entertain the notion of venturing into another neighborhood (lord forbid!) for food, either. Plainly and simply, good Chinese food.

This place has the best pork buns and egg rolls anywhere. They are pricey for the size of the portions, but the food is delicious. I highly recommend it.
