The dumpling vegetarian style are excellent, so are the shrimp but you only get 4. The bean curd with crab meat are fab. The casserole of bean curd is good, but not as good as the silky crab meat bean curd. The prawns are good but expensive for $20. They often try to push the specials which can be $45 so beware. The eggplant for $12 with black bean was quite good. It is the best Chinese restaurant in the neighborhood.

One of my favorite places for Chinese in the city. Amazed it's on the UES! Elegant dining room (esp compared to most Chinese restaurants). Terrific value for lunch, but you have to ask for the lunch menu -- three times they simply handed me the dinner menu, as did Grand Sichuan in Chelsea, which is a pet peeve.

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).
