Egg drop soup-bland. Wings-weird flavor. Ribs-too sweet. Duck-poor quality and salty beyond belief. Overpriced even for midtown. There must be another area restaurant where the food is good.

They have the best quality food for chinese delivery in Murray Hill area. While some other reviews say the food is bland, maybe it just isn't greasy enough for certain peoples taste. I find the food to have a very clean fresh taste, which i prefer.

Just waited 21 minutes for hot & sour soup and some dumplings. People came, ordered and got their food while I waited. Maybe it was lost in the kitchen because when I got back to the office my food was cold. It was probably a lot tastier if it was hot... Next time I will skip ordering the dumplings, because whenever I asked what was taking so long they told me it was the dumplings. The dumplings were not worth the wait, tasteless and greasy. The soup was good, if it was only hotter!

Perhaps those who don't rate this restaurant high they don't know what to order. If so, don't decide by yourself but just consult with them and follow their recommendation! "Fried t-bone steak" is the chinese feast you can have only at this restaurant in New York.

If you are looking for large portions and fried chicken wings, Evergreens is not the spot. Instead Evergreen's flavors feel gourmet, light, not goopy and corn-starchy like those other joints. The chicken always seems fresh and is truly all white meat, not that byproducty looking stuff we sometimes get at the other shops. We are suprised at some of the other reviews. We really like Evergreen and think they have the best quality ingredients - We ate there last night and commented on how it reminded us of Fine Chinese dining, the way we remember Chinese Restaurants to be when we were 70's kids. Definately better than the other Murray Hill area Chinese restaurants whose foods taste 'processed' or 'unloved'....Try fresh Chicken with Baby Bok Choy and Celery in white garlic ginger sauce or even dark, spicy garlic sauce on the side. Tasty beef with broccoli and all sorts of yummy Dim Sum. In the end, grown up food for when we aren't looking for grease to cure our hangovers. On the days we are hungover, well that's when we hit any of the other usual suspects for large amounts of pork fried rice. .

Just started working in the area, so I found this place on menupages.com. While it's not the worst food I've ever had, it comes as close to a dictionary definition of bland as I've ever eaten. Had the fried dumplings and sesame chicken: each was nearly completely devoid of taste. Even the discount pouch of soy sauce had no taste! It's safe to say I'll be eating elsewhere next time I want Chinese.

The food is so so. Surprisingly, the decor is better than expected. There was a decent amount of people eating there while I was waiting for a table. And people were coming and going while I was eating. So it can't be so bad if people are coming in, right? For sure, there are better Shanghai restaurants in Chinatown and elsewhere.
