This is my third time to dine
This is my third time to dine here. I booked a week in advance & made a special request for my birthday. Nothing was done or said or acknowledge!!!!!!! I was meeting a friend from Glen Cove NY. I will never eat here again! The waiter was cold and very impersonal.
It was very dissappointing, truly! I am from Texas and never have I been treated so rudely.

Gracious old still of Chinesse dining. It is pricey but worth the quality, especially the Pri Fix lunch.

Mr. K's was an elegant experience
Mr. K's was an elegant experience -- beginning with the orchid corsage presented to me when we arrived, continuing through the cherry blossom pink banquettes and gold plated flatware, and the lovely service in the art deco dining room. We expected Sydney Greenstreet to appear suddenly and be seated at the next table. We went for a late lunch and found the place almost empty -- just 6 or 7 tables occupied in a large space. The food was good -- best pan fried dumplings we've ever had (including London and San Francisco) -- and various dishes were divided among us before being presented at the table. While delicious - they could have been hotter. The menu is large enough to satisfy the curious but not particularly challenging. Recommended.

It was my first visit, and turned out even better than expected. The décor of the building, lobby, and restaurant is 1931 Art Deco, and that alone is astonishing. The service was highest level, and the food superb. I want to go right back!

Fantastic food and service. They were very accommodating, made great recommendations for our dining pleasure. It is a pricier dinner, but a great experience.

Always great for business lunches - everyone doesnt know about it in the area because it is hidden on the corner but it is a a magnificent decor (asian style) and wonderful service from start to finish.
I especially enjoy the Peking Duck - everyone has enjoyed the food when I have been there - over 100 times - first time writing a review

Expected more. Peking duck served on too think wrapper, meat pieces unundentifiable.

Icing on the cake!
Our visit to Mr. K's was on a friend's recommendation - and really enhanced our dining experiences whilst visiting NYC from England. In a calm, comfortable and delightful art-deco setting, the food was beautifully prepared with a great wine list. A highly recommended restaurant, and we'll return when next in the States.

one. of. our favorites
Best in NY. We eat here often and enjoy it every time

Mr. K's is one of my favorites in New York. I especially love the Peking duck preparation and the soup served in personal gold chafing dishes kept warm with a tea light underneath. The shrimp wonton soup is simple and delicious. Highly recommended.

Classic Charm and Great Food
I went to Mr. K' for lunch for the first time at a suggestion of a client and found it to be charming and great food. The waiter gave me a flower for my lapel and was courteous and attentive throughout the meal. The food was excellent and we all enjoyed the lunch.

Very relaxing. Quiet and peaceful.
Very relaxing. Quiet and peaceful. Great for when you want atmosphere but prefer the ability to hold good conversations while dining. A little over priced but a nice break from the noise of the city

We completely enjoyed our meal at Mr. K's. the Prix fixe menu had several selections for each of the appetizer, soup and entree offerings. I had the firecracker fish for my main course, while my guests had a lamb course and a chicken course. We ate family style, which is perfect when you really want a taste of everything.
The service was excellent. The dishes are "presented" in Goldware. The presentation just adds to the good experience. If I have a comment on areas to improve I would suggest they add a few white wines that are excellent with Asian food. They have Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Blanc, with 3 white burgundies and a couple of sweet whites. They need Viognier , Chenin blanc and Sancerre .
All in all- worthy!

Mr K's for lunch
Like that it is not noisy, very comfortable. Nice menu - not very adventurous.
Regular menu is a little pricey. Excellent choice for Restaurant Week get together with friends.

Always very good
I love Mr K's because the food is excellent, service always very good, and the setting very comfortable. Tables are spaced apart so you can actually relax over lunch and dinner and not be squeezed between tables. I also like the fact that the restaurant is not very noisy, so one can enjoy a conversation and not have to shout.

Great value for money
3 course prix fix lunch is an exceptional value. All dishes are delicious, service impeccable, place is elegant and plenty of choices. Even the coffee is included in the price.

Mr. K OK with me
Absolutely gorgeous restaurant with beautiful table service pieces. Food quality excellent, but very expensive for chinese food, portion size only average. Consistently an excellent meal though, and good location in midtown, next to Waldorf Astoria.

Hard to beat- as good as any chinese restaurant in the city

Another wonderful dinner at Mr. K's
We are only in New York 2 or 3 times a year for business, but our final night in town is ALWAYS spent at Mr. K's. From the beautiful Art Deco surroundings to the attentive, classy staff, every visit feels special. We like to start with drinks at the cozy bar, then head to our table where each lady is given a small iris. The food and presentation are top notch, and reasonably priced for this area. The after-dinner coffee service is fun to watch and delicious, too!
If you want to impress business associates, need a romantic spot for a date, or just want to relax and have good Chinese food, this is your place.

This is a winner!
Everything about Mr. K's is top-notch! The restaurant is lovely, quiet and tables are spaced beautifully. More than that, the food and service were superb! I anticipated a most enjoyable lunch experience, but our afternoon exceeded my expectations. "Kudoos" to a fine restaurant.
