Been to this branch several times as well as the UES one, which is equally good. Love the food!! Ambiance is convivial, always busy, decently attractive -- far from fancy, and service is prof'l with mature, suited Chinese waiters who help to answer your questions. Ordered the hot & sour soup, which was great, then one of the nightly specials, crab in a sichuan sauce. Waiter advised me these were in the shell, but said that's fine. Got a massive platter with a wonderful sizuchan pepper sauce. Was messy to eat, but fun. All the passers-by gawked at my plate. Other dishes have all also been great. Btw, my other two faves Chinese-wise, are Grand Sichuan and Yeah Shanghai Deluxe.

You know this restaurant is good when Chow yun Fat, Ming Tsai, and the girl from crouching tiger hidden dragon are some of their regulars. It's quaint and the food never lets me down. Try their razor clams with scallion sauce..soo good.

Try wonton with hot oil. It's yummy and tasty. Most of seafood dishes are very good.

Walked over to this midtown hideaway in 94 degree weather for takeout. Had the most delicious mouth watering Beef Filets & Vegetable with Hunan Spicy sauce Ive ever tasted. The wait was horrendous in this cramped establishment and service unfriendly but the food well worth it. My advice call in your takeout order 1/2 hour before you go!

The food here is excellent. While it's slightly pricier than your average Chinese restaurant, the food doesn't have that dingy overly greasy taste to it. The food is tasty, light, and a good size in portions. The service is friendly and courteous, too.

The Chef's Ma Paul Tofu (ma pao dofu) is the best we've had anywhere. The razor clam appetizer is also outstanding. Good sichaun food in mid-town.

This is one of my favorite stops when I come to New York for authentic chinese food conveniently located in midtown. Wu Liang Ye never disappoints and has been consistent for over 15 years.
