    Good delivery food, poor phone service

    I've been ordering delivery from Our Place for years now. I'd rate the food quality as "above average" for a neighborhood Chinese restaurant, and in all my years of trying, I've never found a better one in the UES. I suggest sticking to the dishes marked "hot and spicy" most of the time, as with the exception of the hot and sour soup they really aren't so spicy, and the other items on the menu are sometimes a bit bland. Delivery service is usually super-fast, often within 15 minutes! I live about 6 blocks from the restaurant. I've never seen them get a delivery order wrong. Their delivery men are quite courteous and pleasant. The only problem I have with Our Place is the obnoxious woman who often answers the phone and takes my order. She tries to hang up on me before I've had a chance to give her my credit card number, in order to force me to pay cash. When I do say I want to pay with a credit card, she very rudely tries to make me pay with a Visa or Mastercard rather than American Express, which has I think a 1% higher service charge to the restaurant. It's highly unprofessional and unpleasant, and the woman who does this has no place in the service industry. I'd probably order from Our Place twice as often as I do, if I didn't dread dealing with this awful woman so much.

    Dim sum just ok

    I was excited to see the sign outside Our Place about fresh dim sum service. Went yesterday around 3:15pm and saw dim sum was ending at 3:30pm. Place had only one other couple in it and was deserted. Sort of cold, empty atmosphere. More workers than customers. Dim sum was ok. Chow fun was good. Service fast. But it just felt odd to be the only customers when the other couple left...I'll head to Chinatown next time I want really good dim sum.

    Great food, great place

    I've been to both this and the former location. I much prefer this one. Lovely clean and open. The old one (still clean) was dark and depressing. The food is wonderful but stay away from the chopped duck. Not a lot of flavor. Everything else was wonderful and tasty. A definite "GO" in the neighborhood.

    I went here with three other people on a recent Friday night and had one of the poorest dining experiences in a long time. Firstly, the service was subpar and, even though we arrived after 9:00 and the restaurant was not full, it took the waiter more than 15 minutes to come by and take our order. Another 15 minutes went by before our soup arrived. When it did, my friend tried to pawn off his wonton soup on me, saying it tasted funny. (I mean, how do you mess up wonton soup?) The minced duck in lettuce leaves looked and tasted like a pile of mush and the spareribs tasted like bbq sauce had just been brushed on before serving. We were just hungry and looking for a decent meal, nothing more. What a waste of money. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

    Good food, poor service

    The food is some of the better take out in the area, that is if you can get past the rudeness of the people taking the order. They also get the order wrong about 20% of the time. If you can deal with all of that then you will usually get something worth eating that isn't to greasy.

    I usually order take out for lunch from Our Place and have always been very impressed with the quick delivery and tasty food. However, they seem to have changed their lunch offerings; the quality of the food is not as good as before, and they now charging $1 extra for soup. Also, my delivery was over half late late and was cold when it arrived. I am no longer impressed with this restaurant.

    nomnom!

    Consistently tasty. Always quick delivery. The noodles and the eggplant are wonderful, this coming from a carnivore!
