    Never again

    My grandparents came here 60 years ago and we have been coming for the last 20 years.....never again. We used to not mind the extremely high-priced entrees and appetizers because it tasted so good. That is not the case anymore. I asked for Spicy Chicken Soong and it did not have any spice or taste! When I said I asked for "Spicy" Chicken Soong, they took it back without saying anything, poured the hot pepper and oil all over it and just brought the dish back and dropped it on the table. So rude.....again, do I need this for these prices?!?!!? The slippery chicken, soup, and spring rolls were all tasteless as well. The waiters have a terrible attitude, always have, but again, I used to ignore them and just focus on the food. But now, they even managed to mess up that component. The branch on the UWS is inedible, it's a shame this original Shun Lee Palace....followed suit. I'm not sure how they could stay in business much longer. Just do yourself a favor and spend your hard earned money elsewhere....trust me that there are much better places in the city for less money. I left the place starved and angry.

    worth the wait, every single time

    i have a particular dish that i can't get the same taste from any other chinese place in nyc. i tried and tried, seriously tried, because shun lee palace took too long to deliver to my building. after each disappointing try, i'm constantly reminded how shun lee does chinese right. today, knowing that it will take over an hour, i just placed my lunch order. but i know when it gets here, it will be worth the wait.

    Not At Any Price!

    After rudely being changed to a different table because one person in our party did not show up (this was done at 5:30 and an empty place) we sat with menus until we stared at one another long enough and asked for the Restaurant Week menu, conveniently not attached to any of four regular menus. Well, why not? We could be uninformed tourists. No such luck Shun Lee. Along with my Chinese daughter-in-law, we had ONE scallop divided into four sections for two people with some cheese on top. The appetizer on the menu clearly said," two grilled scallops", hmm, that is suppose to be per person. Oh I know, the chef had the Saint Jacques recipe open. With the low ceiling, and one toddler in the room the noise was inescapable. Also taking into consideration the grumpy waiters and a few burnt pieces of duck in the wrap (undoubtedly saved in the kitchen for those cheap Restaurant Week folks). I would never, under any circumstances, Restaurant Week aside, recommend this place at any price. We had tried it in 1971 when it opened, and all I can say is if you want really great Chinese food folks...please go downtown. My daughter-in-law can tell you where! This is our sixth Restaurant Week choice and I have nothing but praise for the other five. This is what I get for listening to a neighbor who never leaves the UES.

    Best Chinese in this city

    My family has been going to this gem for decades and it's still the best Chinese to beat. Ask any true New Yorker and they will not only know it, but have repeatedly dined here for generations including NYC Mayors, US Senators, celebs, and movie crews. The Peking Duck is tender with extra crispy skin, the Lobster Cantonese succulent and fresh, and the spicy hot bean sea bass--unbelievable! Elegant decor, eager to please wait service, and a full dessert menu too! Pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for!

    Prices go up, portions shrink

    The food is overall good (overall because the chicken satay is fried and inedible). However, the prices keep going up: $20 for chicken soong appetizer, $7 for a spring roll and $27 for chicken entrees. Even worse is that the portions are considerably smaller than they used to be. The service needs improvement since they like to hover too much and rush you, even when the place is empty.
