    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

    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.

    Do not order take out

    Friends wanted us to try this restaurant. We ordered the General Tso's chicken, fried pork dumplings, scallion pancakes and Grand Marnier prawns. I have an allergy to garlic-a bad one. The chicken arrived with two large visible pieces of garlic; the pancakes were rather poor, and the shrimp had a little mayonnaise on top- no relation to Grand Marnier. Our friends insisted we try them again- so we ordered takeout; the same chicken and shrimp dishes, with Mo Shu pork, and brown rice OK - will be ready in 10-15 minutes. I went to pick it up - there were 2 couples finishing eating, they paid and left. I waited just over 30 minutes. When we opened the package we had Mo Shu chicken and white rice. No big deal. Again I had to add my own Grand Marnier. The chicken tasted strange. after letting it sit awhile the taste came through. It had had garlic in it, and been removed. Sorry, friends, but it will be a cold day in hell before we eat here again.

    great chinese

    just moved to the UES and had great takeout from Wa Jeal. Everything arrived quickly and hot. Sesame chicken was crisp and the baby bok choy was not overcooked. About to order again.

    Do not order take out

    This place has no take out menus. They tell you to go to the website and call or order online. Keep in mind it says 60 -70 minute wait for delivery. I tried calling for the first time they put me on hold for 5 min. I thought they forgot about me called back again and they put me on hold waited a few minutes called back again same thing they don't let you get in a word before they say please hold. They claim they are the best Chinese restaurant in town. Put me on hold three times you strike out.
