The food here is reliably good. The Peking duck is a specialty and good to share. This is the first time we didn't order too much, a problem unless you want to take a takeout box into the theatre. This past visit, during the holiday season, they were pushed and two dishes arrived cold. They fixed it and we had a good experience.

I have been going to this wonderful elegant Chinese restaurant for a number of years, it is always a great experience, specially the Peiking duck, which is beautifully carved and served by the very well train staff.
If you want a real treat, let them compose a menu for you, you will be happily surpriced!
In spite of the elegant surroundings and generous portions of great food, the prices are quite reasonable. If you are home bound, they also deliver their lovely offerings.

We really enjoyed our meal here. Restaurant is a bit more up market than some other Chinese so the price is a bit higher. Interesting menu. Excellent service.

Been going here for years. Old times sakes mainly. Food needs some attention. Perfunctory service and they have missed an opportunity to keep it interesting and fresh. Menus are drab.no specials.

The service and food are very good, place is spotless. I had the foi GRAS dumpling special, yummy! Then the lobster with ginger and scallions over crispy angel hair, which was lovely. My husband had your basic shrimp with lobster sauce, he claimed it was the best he has ever had. It is pricey, but the location is in high rent area, close to theaters, Lincoln Center and movies, very convenient.
