Legend Upper West

This place is not about atmosphere, although there are large groups of convivial Asian students enjoying things most Westerners are reluctant to try. (We're often the only Westerners here.) I can't get enough of the Sichaun Spicy Fish Filet (S19) on the "Traditional Sichuan" menu. My husband can't tolerate the heat, but is very happy with the old Upper West Side part of the menu. The service is what I love: prompt and no false friendliness, although they recognize you after a few visits. Takeout is prompt and accurate.

When my wife and I eat there it is very good. but when we do take out, ouch.

this place has such a wide variety, and everything I've tried is absolutely delicious...it has quickly become a weekly staple in my diet

When it first opened, the food was pretty good, which saying a lot for the UWS (which has little-to-no decent Chinese food). But, now, the food is pretty bad - just ordered delivery: Kung Po Chicken and Conch. You could use the conch to line your shoes. The chicken was a loss. Time to find another restaurant.

We finally gave Legend a try...and boy do we regret wasting our delivery night on this place. We can't complain about the delivery time...that was spot on. But the food was flavorless. Both chicken dishes were bland and rubbery. The scallion pancakes had no scallion flavor. And that's just the beginning. Sorry, Legend, but not even worth the benefit of the doubt and a second order. We'll roll the dice and try another place next time...it'd be pretty hard to find someplace even more disappointing.

This place was full last night. The service was prompt and the food terrific. Highly recommend!

Happy to have made this find in neighborhood! Definitely best Chinese take-out we have had for years. Delicate, surprising, fresh and not gloppy or sweet. Delivery was fast and, though a bit more expensive, is worth it.
