I always avoided this place because of all the $$ signs thinking it'd be too expensive for lunch. Lo and behold, they have a lunch special and it is by far the most generous special in the neighborhood. You get a giant portion of your entree with 2 dumplings and a small serving of rice along with fried wonton skins and a selection of dipping sauces. The food is light years better than the competition (I've been to every Chinese restaurant in the E 50s except Shun Lee). It's not greasy, very well seasoned and cooked to order. Now if I want my extra-spicy, sugar-free, reduced sodium garlic pork, I know exactly where to go!

The service was excellent, very attentive. The food is definitely not like your usual take-out. They have authentic regional Shanghai dishes along with your more mainstream Chinese dishes. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed - not stuffy at all which is surprising for its east side location.

Food is excellent and well prepared. Sauces are light, but tasty. For some reason, food eaten in was less flavorful. Preferences could not be accompanied in the restuarant as they can over the phone. Regardless, food is still some of the best.

My office has ordered food from here at least 2 times a week for the past 2 years. I have tried pretty much everything on the menu and have to say there was never anything that was 'just okay'. I have eaten in the restaurant once and found it to be pleasant as well.

Great Chinese food... the best I've had in a long while. Service is excellent as well! Prices are a little high, but totally worth it!

I have been here on several occasions and I always found the service to be very good. And the food to be not only authentic but delicious. In addition, I have always received chopsticks with my meal and found the entire experience to be great!

We just ate at "Our Place" and were very disappointed. Other reviews had us expecting an above-average experience. Instead, we found tbe restaurant to be totally inauthentic--the kind of stereotypical white-tablecloth American Chinese place that gives you forks instead of chopsticks and charges you for tea. Some of the food was passable, but our main entree was not up to par. They also committed the perennial sin of taking our check and tip before we even stood up--I don't know why, but that always rankles me.
