    Give me clogged arteries!

    I ordered a beef and broccoli for delivery and when I opened the container, it was flooded with oil. The meat wasn't simmered in the sauce at all because when you bit into it the taste is of just the meat and oil. The sauce itself was floating around separately in the oil. Everytime you take a bite of something all you can feel and see is the oil dripping off. Also, they jacked up my order, but refuse to admit that they made a mistake. Never ordering from this place again.

    I'm hoping this was an off night...

    I've eaten at this place several times and been very pleased. I've ordered from this place several times and am usually happy, but i just had one of the poorest Chinese meals ever. We ordered General Tso's chicken, cold sesame noodles, and minced pork with noodles in black bean sauce. The sesame noodles were fine, no real complaints except that they were a little gritty, but not bad. The minced pork with noodles was okay, but the noodles were completely mushy - WAY over done, almost formed a big mush ball when i emptied out of the container. But that was nothing compared to the General Tso's chicken. First the sauce is good, i'll give them that, but they don't give you enough sauce to put over the rice. Second, the chicken was DRY beyond belief - it was as if it was overcooked, then sat on the counter, then was reheated. also, the delivery guy got to my place in 5 minutes - no way they cooked the food to order, the chicken was probably made and packaged earlier along with the mushy noodles. Hopefully this was an aberration, I would normally recommend this place, but based on todays dinner, i'd stay away from the delivery...

    I so do not understand the rave reviews that this place is getting. My soup dumplings were cold and all of them crushed so the soup came out. Lo mein was greasy and flavourless....the worst is that I paid with my credit card and first they charged me twice. After having them fix that mistake I later saw on my credit card statement that they had given themselves a 13 dollar tip on a 31 dollar check! WTF! Dont do it unless you want bad food that is waaaaay overpriced.

    I love this place!

    The Northern Chinese food is delicious and they have quick delivery over a pretty long distance. The soup dumplings are best I have tasted outside of Chinatown and satisfy the craving; all of the other dishes I've tried have been good as well. Highly recommended.

    Best Chinese on the UES

    I've never eaten in the restaurant, but delivery is great. Always on time, and the food is the best I've had from any Chinese delivery place on the UES. The chunks of chicken appear to be actual pieces of chicken, not blobs of random goo that you get from most other Chinese places. I will never order from another Chinese restaurant on the UES. If Shanghai Pavillion is closed, I will just order Dominos. There is seriously no substitute.

    Pretty Good

    Agree with upscale Chinese.The drinks were expensive. The food was pretty good, wouldn't say it was the best Chinese I've had. The pork dim sum was very good. Oveall pretty good. Don't think it is worth the extra $$ though.

    Best NY Chinese Restaurant.....

    I eat here on a weekly basis and live in the Bronx. I discovered the place before moving from UES and then to Queens and still ate there once a week. Highly recommend crescent chicken dumplings - has the best spicy sauce - crispy shredded beef, crispy chicken w/ celery and my favorite (from the back menu) - broccoli & chicken with kung pao sauce - extra spicy Service is fast and quick. Don't forget to try the ginger ice cream with real bits of ginger. Very refreshing after the wonderful meal. I always take out-of-town visitors there. Not your ordinary NY chinese restaurant - upscale is how I describe to my friends and worth the extra $$$.
