We had a large order with a varied selection for 10 people with delivery. The selections were quite varied and did not include pork or shellfish. Everyone was very content with the selections. The selections seemed a little salty, and 3/10 had abdominal issues overnight. We will continue to order here, but might alter our choices.

Food is okay. They have a cheap combo platter for dinner. $9.25 for soup, entree, and fried rice. Delivery time is not bad. Soup was okay. Friends rice, okay. Sesame Chicken just all right. All in all, good cheap alternative.

This is a very good Chinese restaurant on the upper east side, surprisingly extremely good and fresh at the restaurant but a great disappointment for take-out. I've never seen such a discrepancy. By all means go if you have a taste for classic American Chinese chow.

Ordered takeout from here for the first ( and last time) last evening. Not only did it take over an hour to arrive, the food was really awful. Tasteless and overcooked. The spareribs were burnt...

Very good and we'll priced Chinese food. I ordered hot & spicy eggplant and pork dumplings...both very delicious. They came very hot with lots of sauce and very large portions.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
