Shun Lee Palace Ratings and Reviews
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.
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).
Shun Lee has been one of our family favorites for over 30 years!! It never disappoints and we always feel welcome there!! Everything was delicious and the Crispy Beef (along with the Peking Duck) are our most favorite items on the menu, although it's really difficult to choose a favorite because it's all so good!!
Food was greasy waiters keep bumping in our chairs and waiter was very rude and started yelling at us when we complained about the food instead of asking us if we wanted something else and told us we don’t need to repeat we already told them we asked for manager he never showed up it’s a upscale place how do they survive with that horrible service
I've been going to this restaurant more many, many years. When I moved away from NY, it became a staple on my "must do" list when I get back to the city. Nothing has changed. Food is delicious and the staff can't do enough for you. It's always special for me to go to Shun Lee Palance. Literally, it's like coming home.
The decor is acceptable but getting a little old. The wait staff is responsive but not sufficiently attentive or friendly. The food is good but not amazing while the prices would suggest that the preparations should be more unique and sophisticated. I think the Shun Lee on the West side does a better job but it’s time that this venerable Chinese restaurant freshen up its act.
