I've been eating at and ordering in from China Fun for years. Sometimes their food is great, sometimes not so great (but not horrible). I come back because the menu is superb, they carry far more many dishes than most Chinese restaurants north of Chinatown. In sum I would say China Fun is right down the middle; you can get gourmet Chinese food in the same neighborhood for much more money, or lower quality Chinese food for much less money. China Fun is a safe choice, a little bit above standard. but a little bit below "tell all your friends about it".

Ordered a Small Lo Mein with Fried Rice, Total was 14 Dollars and 9 Cents. How is that possible? Good food but overpriced. If you can pay that, go for it.

I do order from this restaurant quite a bit...the soups are always great (even won ton soup, which from other restaurants usually tastes like water with some dumplings in it, has wonderful flavour here). The lighter healthier menu items are even very tasty. They have menu items you can usually only get in Chinatown like roast duck, soy sauce chicken, etc. They've also added a sushi bar and it's very good as well. The prices are higher than most mid range chinese restaurants, but the quality is consistent so I don't mind that so much. They deliver VERY quickly and keep your address on file so that once you give them your phone number, they know your name, where you are, and your credit card info (if you used one for your last order) immediately. Yes, it's a bit Big Brother, but very convenient. The staff however is abrupt and rude and most of the tables are too close together. They also state they are wheelchair accessible but there's no way a wheelchair can maneuver around without bumping into furniture and patrons. My advice, save up and get take out.

Take out and delivery only. Ever heard of the soup nazi? Ok, then if you miss Seinfeld or are in deep longing for a waiter that would not only not understand you but will manage to make you feel small then this is the place for you. The food is not bad and they know it, thats why it's priced so high, so if you want good food and no attitude do yourself a favor and have them deliver it, at least that way you can have the satisfaction of slamming the door on the face of the delivery guy, (after you get your food and pay for it of course). That said here are some top Menu recomendations: Unagi-Don (One of the biggest servings in NYC); Chirashi (savory rice and nice variety of fish); Pineaple fried rice (WOW!); Curry chicken psatry (2 delicious bundles of savory YUM!); Mandari style fried pork shop. (lots of meat for under $4.); Stone forest Chow fun (so spicy your nose hairs will fall off); Chinese pork sausage fied rice (A delicious rarity); And any of their mandarin noodle soups are delicious and big enough to possibly warrant a lifeguard on duty near by for the protection of the innocents. If only they could work on their attitudes. Good eats folks!

This place has been a mainstay in its area for a long time. Food is generally very good, with dim sum being thier best offerings. Dinner and take out are well above average, but not special. However, the lunch menu and prices are an outstanding value compared to most in the area. It's a fairly short menu, but portions are generous and served up quickly. Great for a sit down lunch, but average for anything else.
