    Unappetizing Dim Sum

    We have eaten Dim Sum all around the world and seldom been disappointed. The dim sum here is unappetizing and unappealing. The dishes were not even steamed hot, just lukewarm and tasteless. The price that you pay (3 times more than chinatown or anywhere else for that matter) is definitely not worth it.

    Best Chinese in NY

    Service is always great and the manager of the cafe gives personal attention to customers. Favorite dishes include Shun Lee bean curd, schezuan salmon, hunan broccoli, veg spring rolls, stir fried string beans, hot spicy noodles

    So not worth it

    If this is upscale Chinese food, I don't think I like upscale Chinese food. The atmosphere is cool, the service is good, but the food was surprisingly unappetizing - especially for those prices! Spring rolls and dumplings are ordinary, even a bit greasy, but they cost twice as much as at an "everyday" Chinese place. My "crispy duck" managed to be heavy, greasy and bland; the Grand Marnier prawns were in a weirdly un-Chinese cream sauce; the vegetarian "duck" was extremely greasy; and even the alligator was amazingly boring, coming with nothing but broccoli. The desserts seemed mass-produced, like an afterthought.

    I found this place to be overrated, and you can find better dim sum anywhere in Chinatown. Also, not a good date place, as the lighting is unflattering.

    We order in from Shun Lee ALL the time. It is reliably high quality. We go to the dim sum cafe sometimes - the fried pork dumplings are awesome - for a really good casual meal and prices there are like all the other local spots. Service in the cafe is crazy, not great, but it's a fun casual fast moving place. Service in the restaurant is EXCELLENT and the prices are high, but it is without a doubt the best chinese on the west side. A very 80s-style black and red atmoshpere. The wait staff is so friendly and happy to talk in great detail about the dishes...or anything!

    Heartily recommend. Enormous menu,, everything on it is great. Pricey, but worth it - more than just a neighborhood joint.

    I have literally traveled the world, and Shun Lee is second to none. Anyone who can afford this meal would be crazy to pass it up...crazy!
