    Outstanding Shanghai cuisine...

    Great Chinese specialty cuisine servicing the West 40s. Their soup dumplings with crab are excellent, however I wish their vinegar sauce came with fresh ginger. Pan fried noodles are standard, but they have Chinatown quality drunken chicken and jellyfish. They have fast delivery and they replaced my order of pork with soy beans and beancurd when I recieved pork and white cabbage instead. Would recommend to people who have a hunkering for solid Shanghai fare.

    Great choice

    These guys are the best that I've come across in the Times Square area. Very good lunch menu and value for what you pay for. The food is consistent and I've never had anything that I didn't think was fresh. Chicken with string beans, chick with broccoli, and double sauteed pork were all very good. I've had lots of sub-par Chinese in the area, this place is definitely a cut above the competition.

    Easy Dining

    I have been here several times. The servicesi is fast and very good. The food in general is very good, and the place is always neat and clean. Great for a quick lunch, or before theatre. The place is kind of small, but you will be pleasantly surprised.

    My food arrived promptly, I'll say that much, but everything else was sorely lacking. I ordered sesame shrimp, and while I know this is not an "authentic" Chinese dish, I didn't expect it to look or taste like orange paste (which it did). The breading was so thick that all the shrimp stuck together in one large cube, and the shrimp itself was strangely mealy. Plus, it came in a tiny little container. The amount of food was fine (it was a lunch portion), but the container was so small I could not combine the rice with my food (no plates were included either). The egg drop soup it came with had hardly any flavor, and it was the consistency of runny pudding. Bottom line: there are dozens of Chinese restaurants in Midtown- don't choose this one!

    Great Value for Authentic Chinese

    We got our food delivered and it was Authentic Chinese food at a great price. Generous portions and extra sauce to pour over the rice. Shrimp w/Garlic Sauce was fresh and not too spicy. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for good authentic Chinese food in the area.

    Lovely Jubbly

    It is a very authentic chinese restaurant with great food although the waiter had trouble understanding us, the service was still up to scratch and deserves to be recognised, go there and you will be pleasantly surprised.
