This restaurant is nice and simple and is very easy to bring young children and picky eaters. The food came out fast and it was pretty good. If you are in the neighborhood and want nice and simple Asian food then you should try Chinatown East for sure!

I have ordered delivery from here since the first week they opened. In the begining they were on point. Their Sezchuan Chicken Dumpling and sushi rolls were amazing! Their service was very fast. However after the first couple of weeks they changed their recipie for the Sezchuan Chicken Dumplings... thinned out their sauce, and changed the style of dumplings... and their sushi appeared sloppily put together (but still tasted good). Their individual sushi pieces are smaller than average as well. I decided to go to the resturant and eat in to see if there was a difference. NOTE: the crowd is very rowdy and loud due to the "all you can drink special" while a great idea... it doesn't make for a pleasant dinner out. Their in restaurant presentation is great but they still managed to mess up on our order 2 times! I'm torn because I think they are one of the best sushi places in the upper east side esp when it comes to price... but I guess you get what you pay for:( too bad... If you choose to eat there, I do recommend their Shrimp in Lobster sauce... it is pretty good... but order delivery if you want to keep your sanity!

This being the only chinese place in the area I hadn't tried, I just had delivery from China town East. Pork Dumplings in Szechuan Sauce looked good, but the filling was a sort of stringy pork something. Maybe it was uncooked as it was very chewy. After the first two, I ate only the noodle part, as the filling was scary to me. I also ordered Sesame Chicken, which was almost good, except it was very garlicky, and sort of cold, as were the dumplings. Probably won't order from here again.

You will have more luck getting your order right if you order from anywhere else.

After a four hour bus ride to NYC to visit my boyfriend I was really looking forward to a delivery experience worthy of the wait. After finding Chinatown East on delivery.com and evaluating the menu, I decided that it seemed safe and ordered. Within an hour I was enjoying the Orange Flavored Chicken, Pork Dumplings, Scallion Pancakes and Lychees. All delicious! This just might be my go-to delivery place when I come back to visit!

The first time I went to Chinatown East was a few months ago, and I had a decent experience. Tonight, however, was an exercise in stress management. The place was loud - music was blaring, so customers had to talk over it, making it impossible for me to converse with the person across the table from me without shouting. There are several big screen tv's showing different channels, so the whole effect is really distracting. This is a personal preference, though, and others might not mind. The real problem was the service. The restaurant wasn't terribly crowded, but it still took us over an hour to receive our sushi. When it did come, our orders were both completely wrong. Obviously, the waitress misheard us given all the noise, but rather than apologizing and correcting our orders, she argued with us as though it were our fault she got our orders wrong. Finally, the manager had to come over. They brought us our correct orders in the end, and we ate our meal within a fraction of the time that we'd been sitting there. The food was decent, and a very good deal for the price (1 dollar pieces of sushi), but nothing very special. When we left, we were both amazed to find how relieved we were to just be out of the restaurant. The best thing I can say about it is that it's clean, and the food is a bargain. There are better options on the Upper East Side, though, and I'll be sticking to those from now on.

Very mixed food, General Tso's Tofu was great! The fried rice was unappetizing & the dumplings were hard to pick up they were so heavy. Find the good dishes and stick to them, don't take a chance on a new dish.
