    best Chinese on the UES

    One of the better Chinese restaurants in the City, actually. Was taken there by two young women from Shanghai, and they said some dishes (e.g. the oxtail appetizer) were better than what they'd had at home. In any event, it's real-deal Sichuan style excellence on a par with Grand Sichuan in Chelsea or anything in Chinatown (no soup dumplings on the menu, though). If you're a fan of legit NYC Chinese restaurants like Congee Village and Grand Sichuan, you've found your UES resource. If you just want b.s. America Chinese like wonton soup and shirley temples, order from Chef Ho's or the like. This is a different animal.

    not recommended

    I wanted to try a new chinese delivery restaurant and the reviews seemed pretty good for Wa Jeal. I ordered hot and sour soup and General Tso's chicken. It was more expensive than what i'm used to paying, took an hour for delivery, and the chicken is very bland (even though I requested medium spicy) and soggy (even though I asked for extra crispy). Its so mushy and flavorless that I don't think I'll eat it....and I love general tso's chicken. This was supposed to be a special treat since I've been dieting...but now it looks like i'll only eat soup for dinner. : (

    Really, just the best you can get

    Whether dining in or delivery, this place is the best you can get anywhere near here, period. End. of. Story. They are easy to order with, retain your card on file, remember your usual orders (if you order enough, which I do, because it is awesome). Inside is a great experience too. Great waitress, short time till food is on your plate, and always right there with water or anything, but not in your face. If we didn't have them on the UES, we would be totally screwed for Chinese. Because trust me, I've tried every single other one and none of them can even do a basic pork fried rice or even boneless spare rib anywhere remotely near correct.

    Amazing Authentic Chinese!

    I have been going here for the past two years and have yet to be let down! I must admit, you do need reservations on weekends and on Christmas (I will be there again this year). The food is absolutely delicious. The scallion pancakes are amazing, and the soups are great. Every different dish I have ordered here has been top notch, from the sesame chicken, to the campher duck, to the rice and noodle dishes. 100% would recommend to anyone wanting great Chinese food at a reasonable price. Forget the mom and pop chinese take outs. This is what Chinese Food is all about!

    15 Minutes for my order to arrive. Delicious as usual.

    I am enjoying my wonton soup and my favorite repeat order, the fish with crispy tofu. Having read some of the reviews below, I turned my stopwatch on when I got off the phone with the restaurant. It's after rush hour, yes, but the order arrived 15 minutes after I placed it.
