Shun Lee Palace Ratings and Reviews
Very enjoyable experience. All staff very accommodating and very attentive. It was our anniversary and they treated us to a very special dessert...Along with many good wishes. We had a lovely evening there and look forward to going again when we are in New York City.
We always go to Shun Lee Palace when we visit NYC. It was very unfortunate that the food was way off. The food is usually very good. The service was outstanding as usual but the food was way off. Don't know why but at their prices the food needs to be outstanding. Not certain if we will return. It's a shame since my wife and I have been going there for years. Very sad that the food was very disappointing.
All of the Shun Lee NYC restaurants are outrageously overpriced. That said, if you want to pay the price, you will get excellent food, excellent service (helpful, gracious, attentive to your needs on and off the menu) and a pleasant QUIET dining experience.
Shun Lee is most definitely *not* your inexpensive Chinese restaurant - it is fine dining with familiar *and* unusual Chinese offerings and above all, calm, peaceful and courteous.
This was my 2nd visit. I started going here after Mr. K's closed. I have to say the food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. Both visits have been for a special occasion and the staff ensured that our dining experience was in fact special. Serving sizes are also generous so next-day left overs are also a treat!
The orange beef is to die for. The duck egg roll is divine. The Shanghai soupy dumplings are a must. And don't forget a perfectly mixed martini or three. Excellent, elegant service and it's fun to sit side by side with your date (it's encouraged) and watch the room. Expensive but worth it. Best upscale Chinese food in NYC.
We had read mixed reviews but wanted to try a quiet, nice Chinese restaurant with quality food and ambience. We loved our food, the room had a nice ambience, and we could hear each other talk. Yes, it was pricey, but we all felt it was worth the money because the food was so good and the service was equally good.
We've been to this restaurant over the years, willing to pay top dollar for imperial Chinese food though in a city with a good Chinese restaurant on nearly every corner. No more. It is no longer good, and still expensive.
We noticed on the way in that they have "outstanding food" stickers from 2009, but not more recently. There's a reason why.
I can't believe that this place is rated as highly as it is. We have eaten Chinese from Hong Kong to San Francisco to Chicago and this is the worst Chinese restaurant, from food to service, we have ever patronized. We shared the Beijing Duck (they don't actually have Peking Duck) and it was served as "tacos." The duck was off-tasting and the resulting nausea lasted throughout the evening. The service was horrid. After finishing we sat while the 10 or so waiters had a nice chat, often quite loudly. Just a truly negative experience. Avoid this place like the plague.
Great place, excellent food and great atmosphere. Took my 94 y/o mom there for dinner, she loves good Chinese food. We had a great time. Even though the place was crowded (Sat night) the noise level was low and we could hear each other talk very well. For my mom, who's hearing isn't great (again 94!) it makes a huge difference. All our dishes were excellent and the service efficient and very nice. We will be back
I visit new york 3-4 times a year and in the past I enjoyed this restaurant very much. However, the last times I have been very disappointed.
This week it was ridiculous: At 9:30pm 80% of the waiters left, leaving just a couple of junior staff in charge for the whole restaurant.
I ordered one peking duck for 4 people, they served the whole duck in just 6 pancakes...
At 10pm the manager decided to turn off the music, despite there were 4-5 tables occupied....
I have been in this restaurant probably 12 times, but I will never come back.
Very sad as in the past it used to be quite good but it seems management has changed.
