I had all but given up on ordering chinese takeout when I discovered lychee house. The food here is fantastic. The dishes are fresh, crisp and bright. Never heavy or oily. The only other place I have had chinese this good is Shun Lee. I have never eaten at the restaurant but I have ordered delivery once a week for several months. It is always a treat and you can't go wrong by giving it a try. The prices are a little expensive...but it is worth it!

i work in the area and always order from here on rainy days. the food is great, from my experience it is the best chinese delivery i've had in manhattan. it might be a bit pricey but the serving size makes up for it. delivery time is speedy too. cannot say anything about the atmosphere as i have never ate inside.

Our Place is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants and definitely my favorite place in the neighborhood. All ingredients are fresh and top quality including meat, chicken, and fish, which is surprising hard to find at most Chinese restaurants in this city. I usually order delivery or take out and my food is ready in minutes. Dining in is a nice experience as the waiters will plate the dishes table-side and I am a sucker for table-side presentation. My favorite dishes are the pork with yellow leek, general ching's chicken (not general chows), chicken soong, spareribs, and amazing chicken. Egg rolls and soup are great too.

I've been ordering from here for years and the last two times we have ordered the food has been subpar - once, the dish was drowning in oil, and the second time it just wasnt that good. I hope they realize soon because their food used to be great.

Maybe they have better dishes but... Shumei was dry and sticky but the worst offense for me was the crispy duck... a fairly traditional dish... was not a crispy skin duck, it was bonless duck dipped in egg and flour and deep fried... not cute at ALL. and VERY DRY. Had to buy lunch twice...totally bummed.

I have actually only eaten at Our Place twice but have ordered in countless times. The food is excellent and the delivery is super fast (and the order is Always correct). I've ordered several different dishes and loved them all. Overall this will be my Chinese place for as long as I live on the UES.
