The dumplings aren't normal dumplings, they are dense and look like little baskets. The wonton soup is made with fried wontons which aren't good when they are wet. But the sesame chix and the egg foo young are good and the food is generally passable for a fast meal.

I agree..everytime and it has been A LOT...u order and the next thing you know a knock at the door. I always get the same thing, but sometimes its made differently..which can be annoying. It's better than most chinese places near me on the UES- 70's.

If you call at 8:00 pm you'll get your food at 8:07... scary actually. The delivery boy has a wok tied to the front of his bike...

This is a very solid, reliable UES Chinese place. The food is healthier than most Chinese resturants and there is a good selection of steamed and diet friendly items, but even standard fare is cooked without MSG and with the best quality healthy cooking oils, which makes a difference. The cost of dining is quite reasonable, and delivery is speedy. As for the decor--- time for a refit, certainly---but everything is always keept clean as can be, and the waiters are friendly and swift. Trust Charlie Mom's---you won't regret it!

I have tried this place twice now for delivery...urgh. There are several very good chinese spots up here, this isn't one. The food is the bland dumbed down for America variety, if you like that go for it! If you order sesame chicken everytime you might like it.

The inside of the restaurant looks like a vampire hideout and the utensils are ancient (had to asked for plastic ones instead).
