The owner of this restaurant and I have been friends for a very long time. I have been eating here for about 9 years. They cook the food exactly how I like it and it is always delicious. The atmosphere is great, so is the food and service. I have had takeout a few times and it is like being in the restaurant. Great chinese food.

Excellent food. I love their hot and sour soup (probably one of the best in the city). The szechuan shrimp is also out this world. I did get delivery once of general tso's chicken as well as shrimp lo mein and they were both very greasy. However, I've ordered both since and they were fine the second time around. So maybe one of the chef's just got oil happy? All in all, you must try it.

I loved this restrauant. My husband and I were greeted with a smile, escorted promptly to our table. We were served tea, water and slaw. We ordered a glass of wine and an appetizer of steamed shrimp dumplings with sauce, it was a delicious start to a great meal. I ordered the crystal prawn and my husband, the prawn and scallops each served with a bowl of white rice, we did ask for the brown, but we decided the white was fine. Our meals were very good. My meal had large prawns with pieces of ginger and scallions with a light, bright sauce. My husband was a little disappointed his shrimp and scallops were cut into smaller pieces, but the sauce was terrific. When the bill came, my husband mistakenly mistook the amount for $20.00 more than what the bill had on it, he gave the amount to the waiter and said keep the change. Our waiter came back to let my husband know he must have read the amount wrong. What a bargin! Great food, professional and honest service, amount to a great evening out. We will definitely go back, I want to try the duck.

Love this place, honestly some of the best General Tso's take out I've had, and it's pretty hard to have delivery of General Tso's without it getting soggy, but this place rocks. Only complaint is try don't delivery in Spanish Harlem even tho I live pretty close, I guess cause some delivery men had a bad experience or are just scared of the neighborhood. But this place is good enough I'll walk down some 15 blocks to pick it up.

Best Chinese food in Manhattan, and that's saying a lot. Try the very special sesame noodles- no one does them better.

I have been frequenting this restaurant for over 20 years now. I started visiting with my dad as a teenager and now I have my husband hooked! It has always been my favorite chinese food. Each dish has a distinct flavor and the food is fresh and lean. One of our favorites remains the Peacock Fantasy. As an avid chinese food eater, Chef Ho's remains the best I have ever had.

I ordered the bbq ribs - 4 in an order - but I ordered it anyway. Nothing but fat on the bone, never again. Athough the sesame chicken was so very fresh, not much sauce but it was delicious.
