Wonderful meal and excellent service as usual. We asked for a birthday cake and they arrived singing - made it a very special occasion. A midtown east gem! Have been going here since 1995!

I had been to this restaurants many times as a kid and young adult. It was a favorite of my parents. I decided to go back again to celebrate my daughter’s admission to law school. What a mistake. While the food remains too notch,the service and the ambiance are aptly lacking. We were ignored for 15 minutes while we tried to get a drink, our plates were cleared one at a time with a many minutes lag between - last I checked quality restaurants clear when everyone is done with their meal - and the bathroom of two stalls had one clogged and the sink a mess of water, towels and who knows what. What a disappointment. I had take my family’s my there to celebrate a big event and to have my daughters experience a restaurant from my childhood. I would not repeat it. It’s a has been that needs a severe overhaul.

The food is excellent but pricey. Waitstaff seems to have mellowed which is good since they are usually quite condescending. However we stayed and chatted while there was only one other occupied table but the staff kept staring for us to leave. The prawns are delicious so every once in a while I overlook the lunacy of their behavior and prices.

I ordered the grand marnier prawns and a mai tai. Bothe were terrible. Food was disgusting and drink was bitter. Management did nothing about my complaint. Not worth the cab fare or price. It's expensive too.

The food is very god and comes in large quantities (except the dumplings which are excellent but come in a very small portion). The service is impeccable.

This is a nice, if somewhat pricey, option for an up market Chinese meal.

As always, Shun Lee Palace (Eastside) offers quality food, served beautifully and efficiently by a friendly staff. Don't worry about following the Captain's suggestions -they are generally very good. The menu never seems to change, but that's OK as long as you like the mainstays, including Peking Duck, Fresh Seafood in a Bird's Nest and the wonderful starter, Shanghai Soup Dumplings. We were even surprised by the relative reasonableness of the bill, considering the quality of the food and location of the restaurant (high rent district).

Excellent food! Love the chicken sung. Great service! A bit pricey and dated. But we all left happy!

I love Shun Lee. I also liked Tse Yang. It closed so this is the only really nice Chinese restaurant in nyc that I know.
