    Come here before the Opera and enjoy a Dim Sum Dinner - one of the only places that serves it at night! Make sure you get the pork bun, star dumpling and taro pancake.

    "Dine in — as decorative red-eyed monkeys watch you clean your plate — or out — the restaurant provides plates, sauces, chopsticks, fortunes cookies, even dessert (candied pecans)."

    My favorite place for takeout and delivery. Sea bass filet and grand mariner shrimp are so savory and delicious, absolutely melts in your mouth.

    sauteed dried string beans are delicious. a nice, slightly burned, texture and some good strong seasonings (garlic?). I ate every one.

    The cafe is a good neighborhood spot for Chinese / dim sum, although a bit expensive. There is also the more formal version of the restaurant next door.

    Grand marnier prawns great tasting but rich. Chan do chicken fine but nothing unusually special. Heavenly fillet and noodles sorta msg-ish. But great decor and overall the food was fine.

    Classic 70's Chinese dining. If you want to know what Chinese food was like before America got authentic Chinese food, this is the place.

    The Chinese restaurant near Lincoln Center has a cult following for its dragon-themed decor and always-tasty dishes.

    Grand Marnier shrimp and pillowy mu shu make for an elegant pre-Lincoln Center meal best taken with martinis and friends.

    Went for the novelty based on the general Tso documentary. Way overpriced but good was decent and plentiful. Also not the original location!

    Get some dim sum, peeking duck, chan-do chicken and some heavenly fish filet. Toss some garlic string beans into the mix...Thank me later.

    If you haven't ordered yet... RUN while you can. Their manager, wait stuff and overall customer service will leave you so dissatisfied, it will make for an overall bad meal. Never eat when you're mad

    Hit or miss Dim Sum. But super fun when it is busy. Sit in the Cafe, not the full-service restaurant.

    Don't get the lemon chicken. I've had better quality takeout - for half the price.
