    Not recommended! as of May 7th 2010

    I ordered takeout (on May 7th 2010) fried rice and it was burnt dark brown and tasteless for no reason. I also ordered BBQ ribs and they were burnt crusty and old looking once i took it out the bag - some meat was off the bone - like burned off - tortured like - I was so surprised at a restaurant in the 80s serving takeout like this - I should have known once it was ready within 5 minutes.

    Sunday BS

    Ok another NYC story. Ordered from Chef Ho and they told us 1 hour for credit card orders. 45 minutes for cash. Huh?

    Tastes to Die for!

    If you go to this restaurant there are 2 things you must try. 1. The Peking Duck- they roll it up in a "pancake" with veggies n plum sauce. A half duck is a good portion for 2 people. 2. The Grand Marnier shrimp- I tried it once on a whim and I LOVE IT. A must have!

    Best neighborhood Chinese on UES

    Many of the dishes here are very good. This is NOT Chinatown, but for a neighborhood place, there are some very good dishes. For example, chicken corn soup, Young Chow fried rice, Chicken Chow Mein, Lake Tung Ting Shrimp. If you want spareribs, eggrolls, dumplings or Shrimp 'n' lobster sauce go to Chinatown. Theirs are awful!But Moo Shu & Chef Ho's beef are both good, but beef 'n' broccoli is NOT! You can try other dishes and see if you like them. Don't expect miracles, but if you tell them how you want a particular dish, they do follow instructions. Also their Egg Foo Young is good. I order it with the sauce on the side. If you say "easy on the oil", or not too spicy you'll get what you ask for. As for them being the best this side of San Francisco, get a grip.............they are a reasonably good neighborhood Chinese.

    Poorest service ever

    Although there were two empty tables when my party of two arrived, we had to wait for the host to actually walk to the front of the restaurant for several minutes. Then we were seated next to the coat rack and the waiting area for the larger parties which resulted in the waitress forgetting we were there. She finally came to take our drink order and give us menus, but did not return to take them for a good 15 minutes. Our apps took another 20 minutes to arrive, but they were good. My boyfriend's soda came after the appetizers and with no apology. Our meals came a half hour after the apps were taken away and were pretty good, but nothing special. No one asked how anything was and we felt like we were being barked at when we asked for soy sauce. For two appetizers and two meals we were there for almost two hours. I'm confused why they don't realize that people come to dinner hungry so it should not take so long. Thank god I'm not a diabetic - I would have been dead by the time we ate.
