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

Wu liang ye is the best Chinese restaurant in NYC. My fiancé and I have been living in nyc for many years and have enjoyed the neighborhood spots. But this place is the best the city has to offer. We have a holiday tradition of enjoying the festivities in Rockefeller center and eating lunch here. The restaurant is not your... More

When we arrived the waiter gave us a small table, we were only 2, in front of the kitchen and wasn't the best location but the restaurant was full, so I can accept it. We placed our order and the waiter wasn't so happy to answer to our questions about the food. As starters we ordered spring rolls that arrived... More

A colleague has dined here many times and brought us along for a treat, and what a treat it was. I'm told (by my colleague) that the restaurant takes its name from a famous liquor of the same name, which is made from made from five organic grains. In the spirit of adventure we tried a pour, and then enjoyed... More

We were 4 people, shared 2 appetizers and 2 main dishes (and 2 ordered soup in addition)= the food was delicious. The place is packed for lunch, plenty of Chinese, plenty of tourists, plenty of everyone. We ordered lemon chicken and vegetable lo mein as main dishes, and the lettuce taco thing and dumplings for appetizers. We had plenty food,... More

Horrible food.. very expensive for what it is. Chicken tasted extremely fatty. One of the dishes we couldn't eat more than a fork full. Such a shame, regret wasting one of our meal outs there

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.
