Upper scale chinese restaurant

We went there for dinner. The ambience is traditional. The paintings beautiful. The service was very attentious. They helped us select our order. The food took a while to get there, but was very good. We enjoyed the evening and were the last ones out at 11:15pm. The restuarant is a little on... read more

I will start off by saying the food is amazing. Being Chinese, I tend to have pretty high expectations of Chinese food in America. The food tasted authentic, but some of the dishes were not spicy enough for me. However, I understand because this is in New York, and a lot of people can't handle very spicy food, so I... More

found this restaurant by chance. The food was excellent. I thought it was pricey until we got our food. The food is excellent quality and you get your money's worth. If you want great food go to this restaurant.

The menu has an excellent selection of Chinese foods with options ranging from mild to super spicy. Our waiter was patient - we had a tough time choosing - and attentive. A friend from Shanghai did most of the ordering and communicating, which resulted in a wonderful variety of dishes. There were many Asians eating, which I assume means it... More

I am amazed how non ex-pats come here to order the sugary goop covered chicken chunks or the fried rice lunch special. Their menu has so many exotic dishes to try (although their portions are meant to be shared). Must try the 3-chili chicken (三椒) or the Tiger skin chili (虎皮青椒). The former is better than the standard kung-pao chicken... More

We were encouraged by how busy this place was, even though 4 of us had to squeeze around a small table, barely big enough for our dishes. We were recommended the pork dumplings as a starter and they were pretty good. Everything else we had was just bland. I'm assuming that this was down to our British style choice of... More

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

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.

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

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.
