    Thank God

    I love Sichuan. So I was very happy to see this place out the window of my cab. On my way back uptown, I stopped off and had an amazing lunch. The porks dumplings and twice cooked streaky pork were delicious. I love spicy food so I was ecstatic. My wife has low tolerance for chilis, but she loved it too.

    Dump the $4.95 Mexineese for the REAL DEAL

    So, had someone come in and drop off a menu a few weeks back. I've since gotten take out over a dozen times. Everything I've ordered has been perfect. Never too mildly spiced, quality of ingredients is amazing... and the staff and owners are sooo nice. My favorite lunch special... Chicken with cashew nuts (mild spicy) Brown rice, and wonton soup. The portions are MORE than enough, and the spicy prawn lunch item is amazing also. I am glad to see they are getting great reviews and I will continue to order from here over any other place.

    Simply Scrumptious Spice

    This is by far the best chinese food north of Chinatown and can compete with any restaurant in Chinatown. The chef has a gift of combining decent heat with flavors that leave you wanting more. The prices and the service are also hlep make this place an extraordinary find. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that they make it in this town!

    Best Singapore noodles

    By far the best Singapore noodles, not greasy and very spicy. It is clear that they take a lot of care with preparation.

    Amazing food and great service!

    We went here tonight and were pleasantly surprised. The menu offered a wide variety of mouth-watering choices and the staff was very friendly. We had the shrimp dumplings, spare ribs, the lobster special and tangerine beef - all were exceptional. My boyfriend summed it up best with "all the best Chinatown has to offer without having to go Downtown."

    We wandered into Wa Jeal after an evening at the Met, and by the time we finished dinner we were thinking of leaving Tribeca for the east 80's. The food is sensational, fresh, unusual and beautifully presented, the flavors are clean and bright, and the menu is filled with things we've seen nowhere else and long to try. The spicy food is brilliant, and they even have snow pea shoots, the world's best green vegetable. Lucky upper east siders.

    I got delivery last night

    This site should really have a category for delivery or a delivery option on atmosphere. But I digress.... I thought I would try this last night after reading the reviews. They told me at least half an hour for delivery but they got here in 20 minutes. Very friendly. I got the sesame noodles and the Tangerine Chicken. Loved the chicken. The noodles were very different from other sesame noodles I have gotten from other places. Much spicier and with a less pronounced nut taste. I think this is a great restaurant with an unusual menu. I am going to try them again and work my way around the menu and try some things that I don't usually see.
