    This place is delicious and the food is consistently good. My favorite is the crispy tangerine shrimp, you will not be disappointed.

    Chinese food without the grease!

    Fast delivery and they keep it pretty healthy (as far as Chinese take-out goes). The food is fresh and its not greasy.

    Will not order again

    The white-meat chicken in 2 different dishes was extremely tough. The food was not fresh. The fried rice had about 2 pieces of meat and was tasteless. Greasy and dry at the same time, like they reheated old fried rice. This was our third time ordering from Wa Jeal. The other two times the food was okay but based on all the rave reviews this place gets we thought we'd try again. Lesson learned.

    keep going back

    Completely don't understand any of the bad reviews of this place. Have lived in the UES for almost 2 years, and getting Wa Jeal for about that long. Great great chinese food. Some of my favorites: ma paul tofu; young chow fried rice; scallion pancakes. I have never eaten in. Great for rainy night take-out.

    Small portions and quality uneven

    We enjoyed this place very much and dined there many times. The spicy dishes and very good but the portion size is very small for the prices they charge.

    Favorite Chinese in NYC!

    I absolutely love Wa Jeal. My friends and I come hear at least a few times a month. For one the restaurant has a great atmosphere, I love taking family here. The service is always top-notch, very nice and friendly. Now onto the food - AMAZING. It's spicy - if you don't like spicy make sure you request no spice. But if you love spicy, this is your place. Some of our favorite apps include: shrimp dumplings, szechuan dumplings, and scallion pancakes. My roommate loves the chili beef but thats too spicy for me. As far as entrees go the chili prawns are awesome, the kung pao chicken is definitely my favorite, and the spicy chicken in garlic sauce is great too. I also love how the portions here are big enough to share and the prices are so reasonable. My boyfriend and I love to go share an app and an entree and the meal costs less than staying in. If you love Chinese food you have to give this place a shot.
