  • when i used to work at sony, we'd lunch here with the team: peking duck was a favorite (among other dishes). possibly some of the best chinese outside of chinatown
  • Grand Marnier shrimp and pillowy mu shu make for an elegant pre-Lincoln Center meal best taken with martinis and friends.
  • The wonton soup there is out of this world INCREDIBLE.
  • Seems like maybe it was good in the past but was only so so. The spare ribs had no sauce. Beijing duck and grand marnier shrimp were marginal. Really expensive for mediocre food.
  • After removing it from the menu for a few years, they are once again serving General Tsos Chicken, which they allegedly invented. It is delicious and definitely worth a visit!
  • La Carne en tiritas
  • Invented General Tso's Chicken, but doesn't serve it anymore due to demand becoming an annoyance.
  • Seen in Episode 2 of "Master of None"
  • Episode 2 - Parents
  • This place is not good, unless you're old, white and don't like authentic Chinese food.
  • Terrible service and food
  • Over rated and over priced
  • So bad that I wouldn't even take a free meal to go back
  • Their Orange Beef was incredible
  • , -
  • Jonathan Waxman, chef of Barbuto, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Beijing Duck.
  • A high-end Chinese eatery with traditional and classic dishes. We find this elegant and fancy setting to be absolutely wonderful! The staff is always attentive, and we love ordering the orange beef.
  • Peking duck is amazing
  • Very disappointed in the food after my wife has talked so highly of this place for years. Very oily and meat was all overlooked. I would not recommend for the price.
