  • "I was very excited to some at this restaurant espexially after hearing about how great the dood it is and the celecrity status it held in the other states. I get that some plates are pricey based on the neighborhood but it was definitely overpriced. The food was not all that great. The lobster fried rice suck!! The glazed spare ribs were over cooked and dry. I expected so much better and was highly disappointment. I will never come back here to dine again."

    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Complete package. Visit w/ a date,family or co-workers. Great for all occasions. Good pricing for every budget. Casual yet cool sophisticated ambiance. Relaxed bar scene for lunch gets turned up for dinner. Excellent Chinese cuisine is the main reason I dine. From light appetizers (shrimp satay &chicken wraps being my faves) to the many entrees, one won't be disappointed. Order drunken sea bass or green prawns if you love seafood. Don't leave without Beijing chicken &fried rice. Specialty drinks are nothing short of perfect! Try Shanghai Philippe &blueberry mojito. Prompt service &pleasant staff. Crowd varies from hip to corporate so it's for everyone. Noise level is good. Finish with gelato (pear is delicious).You'll be fully satisfied."

Only mishap was that we preordered a Peking duck and a chick days in advance I called the day before to confirm reservation and my preorder, first the hostess tells me that they don't serve large parties at 9p when I already had a reservation She put me on a brief hold then comfirmed that my reservation will be honored She also confirmed my preorder The day of my reservation out server informs me that there was no preorder for my reservation Not happy"

  • "Not sure if there was a Groupon special or what...but have been a few times and there was definitely a very different group of people eating at the restaurants."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I took my lady here for our 5 year Anniversary and we both absolutely loved it. I would definitely be back! The only thing I kind of disliked was that there's 1 waiter for like 5-6 tables or maybe even one whole area. (I wasn't paying too much attention.) But that's what it seemed like. Other than that it was magnificent."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Absolutely delisious! The service was top of the line! Will be back really soon!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Overall a very disappointing experience. To our surprise, the fish was pan fried with not very much taste, the service just OK, the place very noisy and the meal over priced overall."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The seaweed app was out of this world! Go just for that. We three were impressed with the wait staff's attention. It seemed the very minute we needed something, they were there. Wish I had gotten the name of the server because he was knowledgeable about the menu big time. The cocktails were spectacular - good drinks. The birthday celebration was magnetic, everyone joining in whenever the fireworks began. There was a high noise quotient at celebratory times, but everyone was fully engaged. I say this and I am 68 years old. The food was great, particularly the sea bass and spicy chicken. Although we would have loved a dessert, we were too full. Next time we won't deny ourselves that joy. Get a reservation, especially after 7:00 p.m."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "This is hands down my favorite restaurant in NYC. Food is always good but my only issue is that the service is hot or miss at times. This waiter I had this time around wasn't attentive as others and everything felt rushed. If I so happen to get that waiter I will promptly asked to be seated in a different section. Besides that everything else gets 5 stars."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "My friends and I have eaten here several times in the past couple of years and never had anything but the best of meals. It's our go-to place when we met in NYC."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "While this is not my first time dining here, it is my first time dining here at lunch time. The crowd is much quieter and the scene is more intimate than the lively crowd this restaurant draws at lunchtime. I still strongly recommend the food as the crispy beef is always a favorite."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "How can you go to one of the nicest restaurants in NY for $22? 3 course lunch special Monday-Saturday! And the portions are so large they are sharable. Great chicken lettuce leaves appetizer (4 of us shared 1 portion), the chicken satay is also a winner. For main dish the chicken with walnuts was outstanding. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Went here with a party of 6, and had a great time. This restaurant is divided into an upstairs for larger parties and downstairs for singles, the bar, and parties of two. The good was delicious had the being chicken, three the hard way, crispy duck and all were excellent. Our waiter was nice not super friendly but nice. Would definitely recommend!!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was barely as good as my local take out and way, way overpriced. I would not recommend or return."
