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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
