Have eaten many times here and on their east side location. Consistently good food and service. I always get the Buddha Delight, as I somehow think that it will not make me even fatter. On my last visit, I was unknowingly on a last date with a gal who was a real piece of work. She actually spent time in... More

On our last day, we still craved some good Dim sum. Chinatown completely failed on that score so we tried China Fun as it was 5 mins from our hotel. The Dim sim dishes we had were just great and a decent bottle of New Zealand Marlborough Sauv Blanc wine (which hardly any NYC restaurants stock - not even Jean... More

Reliable Chinese food with good service. Also, its one of the quieter restaurants in the Upper West Side.

Went here try sit down and try and grab a quick meal. In this place quick doesn't exist. Our waitress decided to disappear and eat while we were waiting for our food and never came back to check on us for 25 minutes. We were annoyed to say the least. We actually canceled part of our order and when we... More

We were very unhappy with this restaurant. While eating a bowl of noodle and vegetable soup I found a piece of steel wire in my mouth. Very sharp and scary. When we told the staff they did take it away and asked what else I might like. The replacement that came was a very greasy scallion pancake. No attempt was... More

Decades ago a middle-aged woman who seemed to be educated and a very hard worker opened this restaurant trying to introduce a certain "hominess" to the food. There is a corresponding branch on the East Side. The Columbus branch is now under the management of her son. Over the years there is a steady decline in the quality of food... More

Seems to be a chain of Chinese restaurant, so, to be fair, comment on this as a poor example of American-Chinese food (I should have heeded reviews on another site!). The place is small, and the tables are crowded to the point that the servers have to slide through narrow aisles. One server spilled water on the chairs we were... More
