The options around here are pretty dreadful. This place has been a refuge for me. The food is fairly good for the price and the noodle soups are a savior in this weather.

Although I'm a fan of variety, I find myself here pretty

Decent Chinese restaurant with fine decor and quick delivery/takeout. Their cuisine is Sichuan style so for spicy eaters, this is a good spot. Lunch special comes with a house salad with their special in-house spicy dressing.

Pros: Good quiet atmosphere, lots of choices, reasonable prices

Cons: Average food, generic "chinese"

This is a good place to go in a pinch for a quick business meeting or after work drinks. However, some of the staff at this spot have the worst attitudes I have ever encountered. They can be very nasty for no reason at all. They greet you

I've been staying in NYC for a few weeks and Chef Yu is the only decent Chinese restaurant within walking distance from where I was staying. Luckily the food is pretty good. I ate there 3 times in 2 weeks. Decent service. Good Chinese
