    Great Chinese!

    Gourmet Chinese...the best wonton soup! They have great service too...if you order a lot of food to share, they split up the food for you on your plates. We were very happy here.

    Good food, rude delivery guys

    Very good food; delivery guys don't know how to say thank you when you give them a tip.

    Great Find

    Loved the place! The food was out of this world and the service was impeccable. Definitely will return for another great meal.

    Excellent food

    The food here is among the very best one the Upper East Side, if not in the whole city. Some wonderful unusual dishes, such as the succulent Rack of Lamb and many, many others. The ambiance is very sparse and clean, Service is very good. But the metal chairs can be very uncomfortable. Fairly expensive, but worth it.

    Delivery guys are unappreciative

    The food is very good. Liked the Shrimp Our Style. However, after ordering delivery from them 3 times, I stopped calling them. Their delivery guys always act disappointed when I tip them. The standard tip for delivery is 10% which is what I typically give. If 10% doesnt equal at least $5, I typically throw a fiver to any delivery guy (the delivery guys at Saigon Grill, Chef Hos, Wu Liang Ye, and Ichiro Sushi love me). The last time I ordered from them I had an $80 tab, I gave the delivery guy $10, and he looked confused, then sullen, then he kind of put his head down and turned away. It was the 4th time an Our Place delivery guy did the "thats a weak tip" act. Hey I appreciate the fact that their delivery guys wear a bow tie, but 10% is plenty to bike over a bag when the weather is OK. Sorry, I dont need a guilt trip with my Chinese food.

    Unfortunately they remodeled

    This is a restaurant that serves delicious food. It is not great Chinese food but it is good New York Upper Eastside Chinese food. The staff could not be nicer and the service is indeed excellent. When they remodeled several years ago they lost a lot of the charm that had made us want to go there. For a while we did not return. We continued to miss our friends who are so kind and attentive and serve delicious food so we are back as regular customers but the space is not the same.

    Best Chinese on the Upper East Side

    Dining in is always a pleasure, as the restaurant is charming, the staff attentive and the experience well worth the price. Delivery is similarly worthwhile. It's always prompt, and accurate. We regularly order items such as the spare ribs, tangerine or chen do beef and house fried rice. The spring rolls are literally the best I've had in the city. I especially enjoy the dim sum (until 3:30pm Saturdays and Sundays)-- spring rolls are available, along with good steamed shrimp dumplings, rice noodle rolls etc. I especially like the steamed roast pork buns. For those of us on the upper east side unable or unwilling to make it to Chinatown for dimsum for weekend brunch, I'd recommend paying a little extra for the high quality dim sum delivery available from Our Place.
