New to town - really looking forward to a 'Delivered Chinese Meal' like in the movies. Delivery was prompt, price is excellent, service on the phone brilliant. But the food itself left a lot to be desired. Not what we expected - not has tasty as food had in Hong Kong, China, Australia or New Zealand. At this stage not tempted to try again.

Quantity-average but filling Service-almost excellent with friendly servers Atmosphere-nice chic design with a pretty fish tank. Should be bigger. Quality-fantastic

Any time I have eaten in the restaurant I have had a great experience. However, everytime I have ordered for take out its been poor. When dining in the food is great, fresh and the portions are large. However, each time I have ordered out the portions are much smaller and the food tasted old. Bottom line is eat in and dont take out from this place.

This is without a doubt the best chinese food outside of chinatown in NYC. I have taken business associates from out of town who now call me asking when they can come back for more Chef Ho's! No lie! Their food is such a marked cut above the usual bland NY chinese fast food, you want to come back and try everything on their menu. The only thing I ever had and didn't like on their menu is the Banana Chicken, but don't listen to me, you may love it! Try the Hunan Shredded Beef, Crystal or Grand Marnier Prawns or the szechuan oil dumplings, all amazing. Sorry for my spelling and/or grammar!

This is awesome Chinese food. Period. I've tried a ton of other places in New York, and only want Chef Ho's!

I stopped in here to try the duck, figuring it would be their speciality. It was absolutely flavorless and bland. It tasted like chicken with no seasoning, and was totally dry. My husband actually had to ask for salt! The menu here is pricey and the food is very mediocre. The crowd was 100[%] white (no Asian diners!) and it did not feel at all like an authentic Chinese restaurant. They did not even have hot sauce! The Next time I'll stick to Lillie's Noodle Shop for duck or head down to Chinatown.

I could not disagree more with the negative posts. The food is the best chinese I have ever had in Manhattan. The peking duck alone is worth going there.
