Quite okay but nothing special

We ended up here just before the closing time, thanks for serving us, the food was OK and "chinese" but nothing very special. Not too expensive, but not cheap, either.

We always go here for a meal while in New York - the food is fresh, wonderfully prepared and flavorful. Wait staff is helpful in choosing dishes and their recommendations are the best.

This restaurant is tucked away on an upper floor of a building near Rockefeller Plaza. I doubt anyone goes there who doesn't know it exists. On a very, very cold Saturday in Feburary at about 3:00 pm it was pretty crowded, but we were seen to a table immediately. We were sitting too close to a couple who were quite... More

This is the worst experience at a restaurant I've had in a while. We went in as a family of 4 and sat down. The waiter came over and didn't offer any other sort of drink other than water, but that's not the worst of it. The waiter poured the jug and spilled it over my mother. The menu didn't... More

We stopped by this place after the Red Sox vs Yankees game and cruising the Times Square. The place looks average, but the servers were all polite and friendly. We ordered the Dan Dan noodles, dumplings, Yan Chow fried rice and Singapore rice noodles. Every was tasty, especially the Dan Dan noodles and the dumplings, just right amount of spiciness... More

I had an excellent take away lunch that included shredded port with spicy garlic sauce, fried rice and pork dumplings in chili sauce. All of it was excellent and for about $17 we had more than enough food for lunch for two.

I desired to eat Chinese. Place was really bussy. Really friendly staff which was eager to serve and help. Food was served hot, quality of food was really average. I must confess I eat way better Chinese in the past. I was really struck on how dirty the place was. Nobody cleaned the toilets, sinks or even dusted the door... More

This is a bustling place with many Chinese patrons. I have been there many times and always had an excellent meal. The food is extraordinary. This is the place I take visitors from China to lunch. They really would rather have Chinese cuisine instead of western cuisine, and this is as close to authentic as you will get outside of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
