About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

For almost two decades, Mr. K's in New York, NY has been serving up delicious Chinese inspired fare in a low-key but chic setting. There are lunch and dinner menus, and an extensive wine list that offers some remarkably complementary choices for this cuisine.

A meal at Mr. K's can begin with such options as the lover's dumplings or the amazing chicken curl. There are many other appetizers, as well as delicious classic soups. The main dishes feature poultry, seafood, meat and vegetarian specialties. There are also rice and noodle options, and Mr. K's makes a unique prix fixe menu available, allowing diners to enjoy a chef's selected array of delicious dishes and even a lovely dessert.

Great food, service, sooo comfortable. The service was prompt, courteous and very helpful in picking the right dishes and quantities so that we did not have anything left at the end of the meal. Well done.

Looking forward to dining at Mr. K's, but not as quite up to usual standards. Food was up to the standards we had expected. However, service was rather abrupt and not very attentive.
No tea offered, when ordered desserts not offered coffee. Not sure if it was due to Sunday
night, even hostess was not evident initially and then was very casual. Will return another time to see if this improves as food was still very good.

I have been enjoying Mr. Ks since they opened their doors long ago. The restaurant provides an immediate respite from crazy mid-town Manhattan: plush, spacious booths, stunning Art Deco decor, quiet and efficient service. Mr Ks serves the best Peking Duck in New York, the appetizer sampler is always a winner, and the entrees always satisfy. At this dinner I hosted 3 guests from France who loved the entire experience! Alas, Mr Ks will close at the end of May due to the loss of their lease. I am crushed as I truly love this experience.

Over the past nine years or more my wife and I have enjoyed Mr. K's restaurant. We typically visit New York city four times a year and always have at least one meal at Mr. K's. So you will understand how sorry we are to learn that Mr. K's will close at the end of May 2016.

Food was very greasy, for the price it was not worth it. When I showed it to the server he started arguing. I requested for manager who never came. Later I was told he is busy.

Service was just ok. Just put the food on the table did not offer to serve. Non veg and veg Appetizers were split in the same plate and my Veg colleague could not eat. It was just horrible.

OVERPRICED AND OVERATED. No value whatsoever. Service mediocre, at best. Food is poor. Do people dine here for the old/outdated gold flatware service??? REALLY disappointed, as it was a very special occasion...my 86 year old mom visiting NYC and loves Chinese food. This was not even close to what we expected from this legendary restaurant. THUMBS DOWN.
