This is the best chinese food i have ever had in my life...no joke. The peking duck is the signature dish and a must. Another hidden gem is the grand marnier prawns and the crispy beef appetizer. Treat yourself, it's worth it.

This food is simply not Chinese food. It's Chinese-styled, but anyone considering this Chinese food needs to be educated. The place suffers from the typical problems of the so-called upscale Chinese establishments in the City: lack of authenticity.

The trio appetizer was fantastic. Any one going there must try the peaking duck even though it?s optional in the 5-course meal. We were 4 of us and tried 4 separate main courses. Except for what I ordered, which is the ?Lamb whatever style?, every thing else was really good. The potions are huge and non of us could go for the desserts. The best out of all was the way the brew the coffee, which reminds me of Edison?s Light Bulb. Great place for a date.

Definitely spacious, which is rare in NYC. But otherwise disappointing. The "trio" special appetizer of crispy beef, steamed dumpling and spring role went one for three: the spring role was excellent. But the crispy beef may as well have been fried pork rinds and the steamed dumpling was so-so. The chicken with asparagus was also so-so, brought down by the most bitter asparagus I have ever tasted. And our waiter seemed annoyed at our table's requests, which were not unreasonable (additional sauce for the dumplings, an extra serving of white rice, etc.)

For those used to quick, budget-priced Chinese fare where you exit with little white containers, Mr. K's is a world apart. This is a restaurant where you go for the extraordinary ambience and professional, attentive (without being stuffy or overbearing) service. Most of us wouldn't flinch at entrees at a French restaurant starting at $20, but it's unusual for Asian fare. However, it's not the food you're paying for, especially since it's good but not great. This is a special place for a celebration, an important client, or a romantic tryst. The $45 prix fixe, four-course dinner is a treat, and includes three appetizers, soup, Peking duck, a choice of entree (from among two pages of choices), dessert and tea or coffee. Regardless of your choice, expect to pay an average of $50 to $75 per person. And for the most part, it's worth it.
