... and I'm sure some of the patrons probably are, but when you order steamed chicken with vegetables and they want to charge you 16 bucks, it's time to look elsewhere. They're not the only chinese food in the area, either.

The only reason I order from here is because it is close and quick to me. The food is very good & pricing is moderate. The worst part of this place is the lady who answers the phone. She is unfriendly and rude. Make sure you know your order before you call.

Just get ready when placing your order. If you get the lady that I just dealt with you will feel guilty giving this restaurant a penny of your money. A thank you from them is extremely far fetched as well.

A busy 'hustle and bustle' crowd. While the food is decent, I must add that the service continues to be a let down. The service is particularly bad with the phone attendants. Whether it is ordering or picking up the food, these women need some serious customer service training. Someone needs to remind them (daily) that their role is equally important in retaining and maintaining curtomers. I hope that management does something about this.

Another standby in the Apple.. very informal and busy, no reservation necessary. Lot's of bustle, has the feel of a Hong Kong restaurant. The menu is vast and they recently added a Japanese sushi menu. What I like best are the dim sums and if you are alone, you can savor many of the small dim sum dishes easily for a meal. There are over a dozen small dim sum items. My favorite is the steamed soup dumpling, sometimes called xiaolong bao. There are 3 in a steam basket. The best way to eat this is to maneuver each dumpling onto a spoon without breaking the skin. That way you won't lose the delicious soup sealed into each one. Another favorite dish is the combination Cantonese barbecue plate which is always fresh. They do a big takeout business for their barbecues. The simple vegetable dishes are always good. This time it was the green beans which are gently chewy as al dente. Tasted fresh and green when compared against the usual boiled variety in other restaurants. I ordered 3 dim sums, the barbecue and the beans. Enough to take back for snacks for 2 days. The crispy fish is spectacular. On the other end are the noodle dishes. I've had a luo mein and a beer for about $12 plus tip. As in any large restaurant, occasionally things can be uneven. But on the whole I've always been very pleased to at least satisfied. I like either beer or whisky and soda with Chinese food.

This place used to have the only decent Dim Sum and Cantonese-style food on the UES. But the quality has gone way downhill lately ... Very bland the last couple of times I've tried it. Might be that they're trying to do too much, adding that whole Japanese side to their menu. The new people on the phone seem to be nicer now, although they messed up my delivery order.

I don't dine in but get delivery on the weekends a lot at this restaurant. they have nice chinese brunch on sat and sundays. They have the best soymilk and small delictables that i miss from home. I would suggest the sweet hot soymilk and rice ball stuffed with dried meat, and minced pork congee. They are not comparable to what the originals really taste like, but it's still good for what we have in nyc. worth a try!
