    This and Malecon are the two excellent delivery choices in the neighborhood that we've found.

    Great food for value, Only one drawback

    I've lived in WaHeights for almost 7 years, and No. 1 is still one of the best values around: Great food, low price, friendly service- How I love to hear the nice woman who shouts 'Yeah, No. 1' into the phone whenever I call! The delivery is fast, and the food, cheap & delicious. The only flaw is, they don't take credit cards, so whenever I have no cash on me & crave takeout/delivery, it's no no.1 for me.

    They are the best in the area

    I love this place! The people are very friendly and food is fresh and the best in the area. I like the shrimp dumplings and really anything shrimp or noodles.

    Love it don't hate it

    Simply stated...best in the area. If you are looking for authentic Chinese....move to Canton. This is Wahi. Best in Wahi. Period.

    Best in the 'Hood

    Over the last two weeks I ordered cold sesame noodles from 4 places in the area. #1's is in a class by itself - the sauce actually has spice and is thin enough so that you can actually mix it with the noodles, and the noodles themselves have a great texture. Everything I've ordered here has been tasty. The quality of the beef and chicken is better than you would expect. They will also mix the dumplings 1/2 meat, 1/2 vegetable which deludes me into thinking I'm eating a well balanced meal. One caution, if you want soft bean curd (rather than fried) make sure whoever takes your order repeats "soft" back to you. The staff is also very nice.

    Not sure if ill order here again...

    I decided to give this a try since it had one of the most positive reviews amongst Chinese restaurants in the Heights. I am chinese and am very critical with my chinese food. I ordered one of my favorite dishes in general: beef with eggplant. The service over the phone and delivery by the way were very good. The portion is very generous too. But the dish itself was somewhat disappointing. I found the dish too sweet and unauthentically chinese. I was hoping to find uncommercialized chinese food such as the one in chinatown. I guess my quest is still on to find this in the heights. I'm not sure if i will give this joint another try....

    Best Chinese Takeout in the Heights

    The food is very good for Chinese takeout in NYC especially if you order standard things like House Special Fried Rice and General Tso's chicken. But why this place shines is the ease with which you can order. I have never encountered such an efficient system. If the male voice answers you will need 15 seconds and 30 seconds if female. Of this presupposes you know what you want and aren't an idiot. They don't take cash. Avoid the dumplings. Somehow they get them all leathery. Don't go there to dine. It's a take out joint.
