    Great Szechuan!!

    They make the best dan dan noodles that I have had in a long time!! Streaky pork is also great!! Perfect balance of spice and flavor, so far, soo good!!

    So great!

    Found this place a few months ago and eat here at least twice a month. The food has real schezuan fire with interesting blend of flavors. Good delivery time too - always comes hot. Favorite dishes include spicy pork dumplings, wok tossed lamband Kung pao chicken. When eating in- be sure to try the crispy chicken! Took a foodie friend who agreed it's the best Chinese in ues.

    Very Disappointed

    We ordered tonight for the first time after reading the positive reviews. I should have scrolled down to the food critic's review before ordering as this was possibly the most disappointing take out food we have ever had. The sichuan pork dumplings were greasy, the chicken with pine nuts/lettuce wraps had frozen corn, carrots and peas? and the pork with plum sauce was also greasy and had no flavor...simply inedible! There is no one in that kitchen that can cook. I will never order from this place again.

    excellent chinese food!

    This place is great. A clone of Wu Liang Ye on 86th St. Spicy, delicious. Especially good if you eat in and get a discussion going about spicy food and specialties. Always ask what vegetables they have off-menu! We always do and never are disappointed.

    Good food, service

    I order from here at least once a week. The food is delicious and the service is great because the staff are friendly and willing to explain to yo the different dishes. What a great addition to the UES! I guess my only suggestion would be for the restaurant to add a side steam vegetable option.

    Awesome place.

    I really am happy to see Wa Jeal come to our neighborhood. The food is delicious and whether we have it delivered or dining there is a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is very clean and friendly, and currently it's BYOB. I would recommend getting the sauces on the side to control the flavors. The chili garlic soy sauce can be overpowering on some dishes. Love the Sichuan pork dumplings and the chicken lettuce wraps.

    Good eats at decent prices!

    After reading all of the reviews here I decided to try Wa Jeal. I am somewhat familiar with the varied types of Chinese foods from different provinces in China. I also know that Chinese food in the USA is completely different from Chinese food in China. The Chinese food in the US is Americanized and served differently then their China counterparts. Unless you go and eat at the "local only" Chinese restaurants in Chinatown. then you will know what I mean by completely different then American Chinese restaurants. Most Americans would not eat at a local-only type Chinese restaurant because the food they would see would not look like the appetizing and some would be viewed as disgusting. However, the food at Wa Jeal was pretty good and flavorful. We ordered 6 dishes and all were tasty. Overall I think it's a pretty good Chinese restaurant in the Upper East Side. My other favorite is in the East Village called Sammy's at 11th St on 6th Ave. Enjoy!
