    No need for fancy Chinese

    We went at lunch with a group of 6. Our appetizers: Dumplings are opened, cut in half. They were warm/cold. The crispy beef was ice cold. Gross. The entrees only come with white or brown rice. We ordered a pork fried rice for the table and it was ok. The shrimp fried rice was just white rice with some shrimp. This place is over-priced for cold, not very tasty food. Mr. Chow blows it out of the water. Never again Mr. K. Good thing it was company expense account. Yuk.

    for clueless out of towners only

    I always like to mention something positive; the Vegetarian Purse entree was excellent. Inventive, not unhealthy, and well-flavored. Everything else, starting with cold noodles with sesame sauce, was almost without flavor, unless you count red spice a flavor. I am a big fan of spicy food, and Indian food, and in general nuance, but you know when the chef is just mailing it in when heat from spice is the only ingredient and flavor in the dish. Truly a disappointing experience food-wise and service-wise. I am mystified as to how this place stays open other than corporate accounts. The service was surly and while food coming to the table was slow, interactions with the waiter were hurried as he was too annoyed to have to serve people. The atmosphere in the restaurant was one you find seldom these days, plush pink seating, a large space that still feels intimate, and appropriate music. Oh and the bathrooms were excellent, private with marble and the whole works. So unless you eat out for the purpose of visiting a beautiful bathroom and hanging out in a cool atmosphere and do not intend on actually eating good food, would not recommend at all. There are many other exemplary places in Manhattan for fantastic Chinese food at half these prices and a way better experience.

    Perfect In every way

    From the minute you are seated you know this will not be an ordinary dining experience. Service, food, atmosphere all perfect. You truly get what you pay for!

    not what it thinks it is

    too many things wrong here...was hoping it was a version of Bill Hongs or Dewey Wongs...but just an over priced restaurant serving poorly prepared food with a high price tag...skip it.

    please dont

    Where to start, Look beautiful but thats were the good comments end. I could sum it up in 1 words overpriced. We ordered 2 starters, mains and a bottle of win,. the bill came to $130. I reckon we were in and out in an hour. Satay chicken was missing a vital ingredient, the satay. The dumplings got praised by my husband. Can not remember what we had for mains so I think that shows how uninspiring they were. We had been here years ago and had a lovely evening, however will never return. My advise to would-be customers is dont. Your wallet will be alot lighter and you will feel cheated.

    Not worth it. Don't see how they can survive

    I went to Mr. K last Saturday night. We were a party of 4 adults and 1 child. The bill came out to be $300. We had to keep ordering more food because the dishes were small. $28 prawns $45 firecracker lobster were the 2 most expensive and least noteworthy. The prawns did not taste fresh. The sauce and flash fry batter on the lobster was too thick to determine if it was fresh . As the restaurant filled a bit, we were nearly forgotten by our waiter. $7.50 hot and sour soup was half the size of a normal rice bowl and nothing special. The best tasting item was a plate of 4 open-faced pork dumplings with edamame, I believe. Our local Chinese take-out joint does better Chinese than Mr. K. I can only recommend this place if you need atmosphere. It's got plush pink banquets and a deco-themed interior. It's a big space in midtown. I can only imagine how high the rent must be. With food of this quality and price, I don't see it lasting. If you want expensive, inventive and delicious food, your money is better spent at Mr. Chow. But if moderate priced, delicious and fresh is what you are after try M Shanghai in Williamsburg or explore Chinatown and have a real colorful experience.
