In NYC the health dept rates your restaurant A, B or unrated, or so I thought. I had never seen a C rating before until I saw the big yellow letter on their front window, that means 28 health code points for violations. That said, we went back when their score was changed to "Pending" and they wouldn't serve us the lunch special on the weekend, even though the lunch special said nothing about being limited to weekdays on the menu. We were about to try delivery now that it's a weekday, but I'm seeing warning from others that it took 1.5 hours and 2 hours for those reviews food to come, and that Legend was rude or hung up on them when they called to ask. I believe it since they were rude to us about the lunch special thing. I'd said at the time, are you sure you don't want to serve us the special, since it's on your menu without special conditions? They said yes. I said we were going to leave and leave an honest review of our experience, they said they didn't care. So here you go, Legends - all honest... a shame since I did eat your food once when you first opened and it was pretty good, but not worth everything I and other have written about you.

I will never go back! The food took forever, as they served every other table first even those that were empty when we ordered. The service was so bad that the food lost any appeal it might have

The food is tasty, but it can take TWO HOURS to get it delivered to your door. And when you call the restaurant to inquire about its status, they sometimes don't even answer or just hang up on you. Wildly frustrating.

They are always consistent with the right on flavors of their food. Even on a busy night like Christmas Eve. Stay traditional Legend!

Wish Penang-which Legend replaced- hadn't gone. (Had been our regular dining spot.) Went here twice- but think it needs a few more months to get their overly-spiced food more palatable.

Two of us ordered the broccoli with eggplant and pork fried rice. The broccoli was fresh and not over cooked as in many places. The sauce was delicate and tasty but too skimpy. Overall I would recommend it. The big disappointment was the fried rice. Tasteless and, ,dry with no complexity what so ever. Maybe they save their culinary skills for the more sophisticated dishes but all meals should be well made.

I am Chinese and so happy that we have legend around the corner. I don't like fast food Chinese. Thats fake chinese food... like General Tao chicken... yuk. This feels like home food! Please don't order the Vietnamese or Beef with Broccoli... besides Beef with Broccoli is also not real chinese food. Order only Sichuan food and you won't be disappointed.
