Since grad school I've lived in New York for over 3 years now and from someone who is Chinese this is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants (still can't believe it's on UES). I've tried all the steamed soup/juicy pork dumplings in Manhattan and I'm so glad that there's finally a place that does it the way it's supposed to be done. The rest of the menu is all equally as impressive, so consult whatever guide you want, but these guys know how to cook.

I have been ordering from this place since it opened. However, recently the quality has been going downhill. My last delivery came cold and soggy. The lady on the phone refused to send me a fresh meal and basically hung up on me. A friend of mine recently has had a similar experience.

I just moved to the UES, and I love chinese food. I've been kinda trying every place one at a time around here... and this place is by far the best! So incredibly delicious. Everything was perfectly flavored and perfect temperature-wise. Great, quick delivery.This is a great place not just for this area, but all of ny. Nothing to complain about, A+

The food is well-above any local neighborhood Chinese joints, and the atmosphere/ decor is surprisingly attractive. with an elegant touch. Btw, lunch is a great bargain......... This place is a great alternative to Mr. K's, Shun Lee, Indochine, and all the other over-priced Chinese/ Asian places or trendily mixed places, which have, to my experience, all been mediocre, overly priced food. Shanghai Pavilion is very good for neighborhood Chinese and has a great atmosphere.

A very good Chinese restaurant on the Upper East Side. If you're willing to spend a little more money, this restaurant is a good take-out place that offers traditional dishes (and good diet selections).

For those who know what authentic Shanghai dishes are, this place is not bad considered it's outside Chinatown. We ordered drunken chicken, minced chicken soup, rice cake dishes, and smoked fish. All very yummy and priced reasonably. Noodle soups are especially good here. But I wouldn't consider ordering the Peking Duck here (that's like going to a southern BBQ place and order sushi). The decor is not too bad, and service is top notch.

Based upon the rave review of this restaurant, I decided to order Peking Duck delivered. Totally unauthentic. Peking is supposed to be served with crispy skin separate from the duck meat. This duck was not properly prepared or carved...
