Shun Lee West
Excellent cuisine. OverallExcellent cuisine. Overall a nice lunchtime experience.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMChina in New YorkWe had a wonderful experience at Shun Lee. The food, service, and ambience are wonderful. We just came back from China so wanted to extend our experience by dining in the best Chinese restaurant in NYC. It was also our anniversary so we thought to make it special. It was. The service was an added treat. The waiter couldn't have been more attentive and we spoke with him about China and Hong Kong. We want to go back to China and Shun Lee!!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMgood but not perfectThe grilled scallop appetizer (lunch menu) is hardly worth the trouble -- not much taste, boring texture, no color.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPrices through the roof!We have eaten here a lt, but haven't been in a few months. Perhaps I am remembering wrong, but the prices have soared. It used to be expensive, but never outrageously so. That has changed. It will now be for special occasions only...if at all.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for pre Lincoln CenterPerfect for pre Lincoln Center dining. Service is attentive and the food is very good. Those lovely steamy wash cloths at the end of the meal are the perfect touch.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent.Food and service were excellent.

Sea bass well done but sauce may be too salty for some.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter all these years, ShunAfter all these years, Shun Lee has still got it! Food was superb!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the maitre d' couldWhile the maitre d' could have provided us with a warmer and more friendly welcome, our waiter was a delight with a gracious smile and spot-on service. The velvet chicken and corn soup was heavenly. The spareribs were cooked and seasoned perfectly and the spinach that accompanied the meal fresh and green, just the appropriate crunchiness. I loved the scallion pancake and even though I'd already eaten way too much (it was so good), I would have found room for more as they were so good. My dinner partner had beef with peapods and declared it fabulous.
Then why only 4 stars? I would have given five stars if the maitre d' had been pleasant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be great foodContinues to be great food but has gotten really expensive.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Chinese in the city.Food is always great. Should be on everyone's short list.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways go for their ChineseAlways go for their Chinese New Year Banquet.
Fun and very good food. The 5 course menu was perfectly balanced between spicy and mild, seafood and meat (excellent venison).
The appetisers were delicious as was everything except the soggy Pekin Duck (unforgivable!)

Whenever we are in the city we always enjoy a fabulous dinner here. At our last visit we enjoyed Shun Lee Wonton soup for 2, followed by a shrimp and scallop special entree of the day along with and an old favorite egg foo yung. Our food was served hot and artfully presented. Service was attentive but not overly so.12/23/2012 12:00:00 AM
