After moving to the UES almost a year ago, I made it my mission to find the best chinese restaurant, based on value, healthy options, locations etc., and i have to say after my thorough research, Chinatown East is the winner. They have the best steamed dumplings around and even a vegetarian menu. I've only gotten take-out, and the food is always ready by the time i get there (usually about 5 minutes after i call). Plus, when i'm in the mood for sushi, they've got that too (admittedly, it's not the best quality, but it's more than decent and it's so freakin' cheap!).

This restaurant is not that bad if American Chinese food is what ur looking for. However, they put too much MSG in food, and the taste is far from the better Chinese food on Mott street. Don't expect very fast deliver. I live in the next block and it takes 40 minutes for the food to arrive.

Ate here with a large group of families, we are talking 4-5 strollers and tots- they could not have been more accomadating...hard to find in NY. Food was good and fresh. Price is right.

Just ordered my dinner tonight from Chinatown East (after reading reviews here I decided to try this place out). Ordered the very basic steamed mixed vegetables and a spring roll, and I gotta tell you - very good! Not hard to screw up these 2 things, but you'd be surprised. Spring roll wasn't greasy and was tasty. The brown rice w/my veggies had to be one of the best take-out cartons of brown rice I've ever tasted. Vegetables were perfectly steamed. I'm definitely ordering from here again. Would have to say this is my fav delivery Chinese place on the UES. Looking fwd to trying other dishes from here.

This is great (American) Chinese food. It is always fresh and prepared as expected. If you call it in they have a great system utilizing your phone # for future calls. It is SUPER quick so don't go to the bathroom after you call and before the food arrives. Your pants will be around your ankles scrambling for the buzzer.

This place is great. Fast, affordable and healthy tasting unlike a lot of other chinese places. The food is great and it is the best I have had in a while. I used to like pig heaven but it went down. It is really fresh tasting food. Sushi is average as well.
