Just had dinner here. Exceptional food and value. Would have cost more if I were to make the shrimp and vegetable dish myself. Largest shrimp I've had at any restaurant and cooked to perfection. We had dinner about 9:30PM and the waitress cleared our plates as soon as we set our chopsticks down. Excellent meal but didn't relish the rushed service.

I had stopped getting Chinese takeout because it was greasy. But Canteen 82 has restored my faith. Even simple things like Moo Shu Chicken are flavorful and perfectly cooked. The pea shoot dish is fantastic and a good value. Also, my daughter always wants Japanese and the rolls are pretty good. I did think that the big noodle soup in Thom Ka broth had too much curry and not enough lemongrass. Still - a great addition to UWS Chinese.

Cold sesame noodles had a 25 thumbs up rating and I found it to be mediocre at best. Noodles were stuck together and not enough peanut sauce. The real disappointment was the sesame tofu-hands down the worst thing I ever tried. I say "tried" because I took a few bites and couldn't eat anymore. The batter was rubbery and elastic or gluey-seemed undercooked too. Oh, and it was largely these cubes with sauce, two extremely tiny pieces of broccoli-so aside from the bad taste it was also not well balanced. Thought I would try a new place and saw this was the highest rated on the UWS. My review--blech! Dumped food in garbage where it belonged.

I order from here quite often and I love their food. It's always fresh, it comes very quickly and the people are extremely kind when I call. The house special lo mein is one of my favorites. But it's all very good. And affordable too.

Canteen 82 has amazing dumplings! The vegetables are fresh in all of their dishes. If you haven't tried this place, you should! Also - they have a wonderful back room for parties. The service is superb! I'm so glad this restaurant exists on the UWS!

Seriously good dumplings that make your taste buds tingle with glee. I have not had one bad dish, let alone, experience ordering from or going to this superb UWS restaurant. If you're an Upper West Sider, I simply do not see a better option for Chinese. A+
