    Forget delivery

    An hour and 15 minutes for delivery 5 blocks away. Food arrived cold. Won't be ordering from here again, that's for sure!

    Overextended

    Due to the success of this previously competent establishment three things have happened: 1. the overall quality of the food, that is, the previously special attention to detail has disappeared. over the last 3 orders (we order at least once per week) we were completely unimpressed. 2. delivery timing during peak hours - essentially anytime that you want to order chinese - is bordering on disrespectful. last 2 deliveries were quoted at 45 min, with actual delivery times being 1:20min and 1:15min. during both deliveries there were forgotten items. 3. the management, which used to be very responsive and accommodating when the order was delivered incorrectly, has - likely due to the newly found success - stopped caring. rude and argumentative sums it up. one of two things usually happens when a restaurant reaches this unfortunate plateau. hopefully, the management takes steps to improve quality and service or, like most restaurants, it goes out of business. if the latter were to occur at this point, no one on the upper east side would miss the demise of, at this point, a completely average chinese joint.

    Really Good

    Lovely cocktails. Awesome braised fish with mustard greens, though, a bit oily. Poached chicken is good, though, a few pieces of grizzle, with a really, really spicy sauce. Braised duck didn't have the best pieces of duck in it--a bit grizzly. But overall the food is exciting and different. Service is top notch. Definitely go.

    Disappointing

    I expected more based on the reviews, but maybe delivery isn't their thing. I mean who ever heard of delivery from a Chinese restaurant! The food arrived on time and was hot but the entrees were all bland and greasy;. the appetizers were better but not good. Desserts were tasty . Not a repeatable experience

    Phenomenal

    It's amazing to think that there is only one, true top notch Chinese restaurant in the entire Upper East Side. This is it. Stay with the Chengdu-style dishes and you will not get a better Sichuan meal anywhere else.

    Best Chinese - Outside of Flushing

    You're not going to find better Chinese than what Flushing has, but if you don't want to travel that far, Wa Jeal is by far the top Chinese (Sichuan) choice in Manhattan. A 'must' dish - shui ju yu "fish fillets in hot spicy water" - better than some versions found in Chengdu. The lobster is another spectacular dish.
