    I must say that I had heard good things about this place as being the restaurant with the best Chinese food in town. But the food was poor to mediocre (the vegetable dumplings were alright, everything else was not); the service was good and the ambiance was nice. Overall, a poor value considering the large price tag. One could get the same quality food for $20 delivery instead of paying $100 at this place.

    So yummy...don't pass up!

    My boss orders from this place all the time, so I figured I would give it a try....and let me tell you, it was Awesome. The food is different from most Chinese places in that it's quality stuff....you can taste the difference. I had the Chicken with 3 different nuts, and it was out-of-this-world. Also try the cold noodles with sesame paste....you can't go wrong with Shun Lee!

    The Best on the West!

    Forget what these other fools are saying.... this is the best Chinese food in Manhattan. I highly recomend the Dim Sum Cafe too. Bring a date, an important client, or your 80 year old grandmother, I guarantee you will have a blast!

    Not worth it

    Food portions are too little for the price. The duck that we ordered is way too salty. Vegetables are so-so fresh only. Some other dishes - too much starch. Service is spotty. Quite a disappointment.

    Fab food, older crowd

    Tried this place a couple of times, and being in my thirties was delighted to find myself the youngest person there. Possibly by decades. I think just about everyone eating there early is off to the Lincoln Center which is just over the road. All that aside, dine in the main restaurant if you want top quality service (and you'll get it): it's a bit less personal in the 'cafe' or the 'bar'. The food is outstanding and good value. Not regular cheap Chinese: filet mignon and greens are great, as was spicy seabass, and delicately served for you by the waiter rather than regular 'family style' do-it-yourself.

    Shun Lee

    The Greatest Chinese Food on the Upper West Side! They have incredible Dim Sum (at the cafe), amazing poultry and meat dishes, and the best fried rice I've ever had. The prices are a bit high, so it's not necessarily a weekly takeout place, but if you ever feel like going out on a weekend for great Chinese Food, Shun Lee is the place to go!
