    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.

    Best Chinese in NYC

    Always fast and courteous service. The food is impeccably prepared and flavored just right. I always take out of town guests there and they are amazed.

    Best Crispy Peaking Duck!

    The Peaking Duck is so delicious! They come prepare the duck at your table. Although this place is expensive, it is a good restaurant to go to on occasion! I have not gotten anything I dislike from here. Can't wait to go back!

    Appetizers: The dumplings were fine, the cucumber salad, tough, but edible. Entrees: Chicken w/chef's special sauce, completely ordinary, but served hot. XO Chicken tasted like KFC, and crispy scallops, flat, soggy and ordinary taste. Service and ambience very nice. Don't know what the big deal about this place is. Over priced, ordinary, American Chinese. Maybe they are catering to older clients in the neighborhood.

    Overpriced - how does this place exist?

    Went there for dinner last night with a large group. Saw the prices on the dinner menu ($28 for orange beef?!?) and expected it to be family style. IE, one dish services 2-3 people. If we would get 8 dishes it should be plenty for 15 people. Turns out the dishes are all individual entrees. This is not a four star Frank Bruni chinese restaurant. I could understand $30 individual entrees if it was. It's a regular chinese restaurant in midtown, extremely overpriced. The food was decent but I can get orange beef for 5.50 from my local hole in the wall chinese place and it's just as good, if not better. I don't understand how this place exists. I would not recommend it at these prices.
