The peking duck was not very good. Maybe they think if you put enough Hoisin sauce on it, the taste will get better but this was not the case. I had a shrimp and garlic dish also and it could have been anything. No strong great flavors like I would expect. The reviews were good and the place was crowded but I actually don't know why. NYC has some wonderful restaurants and this is certainly not one of them.

Four of us on a Saturday night.....definitely need a reservation. Great corner table in front of the fish tank. We ordered lots of appetizers......sesame noodles (best ever), scallion pancakes, ribs and spring rolls. Moo-shu chicken for our dinner. I love that they put it together with the pancake for you.....so much better than when I do it myself. This was only my second visit but my friend who lives close by is there all the time. Service was excellent.

You know a chinese place is good when there is a line out the door despite the fact that other places nearby are empty. The food here is a step-up from most other local chinese restaurants, and Chef Ho's creates an inviting dine-in atmosphere with its white tableclothes, flowers on the table, noodles to start (make sure you ask), and friendly service. The food is great, and it really is a pleasure to come here. Make sure you make a reservation, though, if you want to go at prime time on a weekend.

The two of us went on a Saturday nite w/o a reservation. Busy but were seated in ten minutes. Spring rolls were excellent, not much lettuce.hunan honey ribs were ok, big portion. The duck was good, not great. Lots of deliveries constantly going out the door . Service was attentive. Would definitely return

We arrived early on a Monday night and were given a good table. Service was cheerful and efficient to begin with with but tailed off a little as the restaurant got busier to the point where we had some difficulty obtaining and paying the check. Food was fist class. The duck was excellent and half a duck between 2 people was more than adequate. Our other main dish was shredded Hunan beef which was very authentic, spicy and good. The accompanying dish of fried rice was adequate but lacked a bit of taste. The wine list was quite good and we had a Beaujolais Villages at a very reasonable price. The overall cost of the dinner was also very reasonable. Well worth a visit
