Though the atmosphere has always been utilitarian, Tang Tang used to be one of the best Chinese restaurants on the UES both quality and value-wise. Now, under the Tang's Garden new name and management not so much. Tang Tang's Steamed Little Juicy Buns and noodle dishes were amazing. Tang Garden's LJB's dumpling skin was thick, the noodles greasy. My Chicken with Black Bean Sauce and my wife's Sesame Chicken lunch were ok, but they used to be amongst the best in NYC. To be fair, it's food was serviceable Chinese food. But to those of us who frequented Tang Tang, Tang's Garden is a disappointment.

We order delivery from here at least once every week -- they have the best dumplings (all handmade, in-house unlike the gross frozen kind in all other chinese restaurants in this 'hood). There is a wide variety and everything is good. Favorites of ours are: tasty little juicy buns, all the dumplings, chicken with zucchini, bean curd with pork, and the bok choy. Usually super quick delivery too. Top-notch neighborhood Chinese.

Tang's Garden has the widest choice of noodles and ways to prepare them than any restaurant outside of China town. I love their Shang Hai noodles in vegetable Shang Hai noodle soup. I also love their lobster or fresh fish dishes.

I often eat here for good reason: the food's very good. They have pleny of noodle types and methods of cooking. I highly recommend their lobster or fish dishes. Besides their great sources, they offer many simple dishes as well which I personally prefer.

The previous reviews for this restaurant reference Tang Tang. Yes, that was a great neighborhood restaurant but the health dept shut them down. They reopened as Tang's Garden This restaurant is NOT Tang Tang as I experienced yesterday on a pity run - giving them one last chance. Don't be fooled by the identical menus! This is NOT the same place. The restaurant was empty at 8:30 pm. Moo Shu Veg is an easy test and it was a great dish of Tang Tang. It was tasteless here - just lots of oil. The meats were greasy. I have found it to be worthless to complain in a small chinese restaurant like this so I guess they will slowly die from lack of business.

I am just feeling sad tonight. I moved to Florida and no longer get to call Tang Tang to order chicken with broccoli, a scallion pancake (with hoision sauce added on the side) and cold sesame noodles. I am so jealous of all your New Yorkers! Florida Chinese "food" is HORRIBLE. NEVER LEAVE NYC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if the job is good, and you are pregnant!

Best Chinese food I've had in a long time - authentic Szechuan. Cold sesame noodles a must! Great value and quick delivery. Tang Tang is the best!
