I really like this place - service great, food great... But lately the person on the phone is too fast and forgets things... Tonight brown rice, last time how I would pay...

Just tried again. I got the Wonton in Szechuan sauce and Capitol Chicken. The Wonton was soft - lifting them they came apart. The sauce was peanut-spicy as expected, but spare. When I finished I was left with Wonton skins because the dumplings fell apart. Blah. The Capitol Chicken was so-so. The Chicken was spongy and not plentiful, and the bulk of the dish was slicked green pepper and spinach. The sauce was reasonable spicy but I was not impressed with the value for the dollar - it seemed like mostly veggies - and the chicken was not a nice texture. I've had worse - but I have had way better too.

I just moved into the neighborhood and already have ordered from them 5 times. Cheap, fast, and fresh! The steamed dumplings are yummy and fresh and they always seem to get here within 10 mins.!

I always get delivery or take out from this place since it's near my job. You really can't go wrong with their lunch specials. They are a reliable chinese food takeout/delivery place that is super quick. my best bets are the sesame chicken (nice and crispy--even delivered--and not too sweet) and anything fried rice. I've had their dumplings (good, but nothing to rave about) and their sliced chicken and broccoli (also good, but not a fan of the texture of the chicken). I love this place tho because they are so quick with delivery it's amazing. If you need a place for good sesame chicken, this is it!

In the neighborhood divisions offered to us by MenuPages, Six Happiness is, BY FAR, the best Chinese takeout (considering the value for your dollar and quality of the food) in the Grammercy/Kips Bay/Murray Hill demographic. The delivery is very fast, the food is always hot and fresh, and the service is perfectly nondescript. The dumplings are really flavorful - lots of ginger and scallions - and juicy and large. The standard American Chinese dishes (chicken and broccoli, moo shu fill-in-the-blank, chow fun, lo mein, etc) are dependable and delicious. This is THE ONLY Chinese takeout I order at home, and when I visit friends who live elsewhere, their takeout rarely adds up. You can't compare it to your favorite dim sum place in Chinatown but if you want reliable, tastey, American Chinese food, this is your best bet between 20th and 40th on the east side of Manhattan. And this has been my opinion since I moved to this neighborhood in 2005, and trust me, I've tested it. PS - I gave it a mid-range atmosphere rating because MenuPages made me. But honestly, I've never been there or even walked by that I can remember. So just disregard that. We're talking takeout, y'know?

I would not even consider ordering from here based on the way this place looks. Don't get me wrong, it is perfectly clean, it's just we have many full fledged Chinese restaurants around here, and this is a place with the order board over the counter and a few small tables. Maybe its my bias, but I never feel Chinese places like that have very good food. They seem to cater more to a lunch and fried rice crowd. Anyway, I was on here and read so many good reviews - and ones that go back a few years all the way up to present day! - so I decided I would give them a whirl and see if there was more than meets the eye. The answer: there is. The menu offers a larger variety of dishes than your standard takeaway, and all at a reasonable price. I ordered an old standby to start (but a favorite and I think a good Chinese restaurant barometer), the cold sesame noodles. They came generously served, and had a nice peppery undertone to balance the vaguely sweet sesame and peanut flavorings. So far so good! For my entree, I ordered Sliced Chicken with Young Ginger Root. This too was delicious - it came in a mildly spicy ginger sauce with pickled ginger, string beans and carrots. In addition to the good food, service is prompt and friendly. So yes, keep the menu! For my money Spades is the standard bearer in the area - both of the dishes above that I ordered are slightly more artfully prepared at Spades (the flavors are more intense), but this is quite good. I plan to call again sometime.
