I walked by the other day and saw that Wa Jeal had landed the former chef from Wu Liang Ye, which made my day! I ordered delivery that night of some Kung Pao Chicken. Delicious! Complex flavor, not too greasy and good heat. It's not cheap Chinese, but it's some of the best, so worth it!

We have been living on the UES for some time, and have tried out numerous chinese restaurants. My wife and I have stopped our search. This is now our go to! We have not had a bad dish from Wa Jeal.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
