I came here with a group of new friends and we ordered tons of dishes for the table to share. Lazy Susan is the best :)

This is my second time here and I was even more impressed this time around. We ordered couple signature dishes such as beef stew with pumpkin and curry Ox tail. OMG! They are sooooo good. They are a little more pricier than other dishes but I highly recommend them.

Also, the Bird's Nest here is great; they gave us tons of scallops and shrimps. Another favorite dish on the menu is their shrimp with rice noodles casserole. I was so full I couldn't fully function afterwards!

Pros: Great selections and clean

My wife and I ate there in Feb 2009. We had great service. The waiter was very helpful. The food was great. Probably the best oriental food we have ever had. We are going back to NYC soon, and we will certainly revisit.

A really nice restaurant! The decor is welcoming and modern. They have a 40" HDTV hung on the wall for everyone to watch and have dinner. They usually keep it on the sports channel. One of the best Chinese restaurants in Chinatown. The food tastes great! I have ate here so many times and I would highly recommend to others to try this place out. Be warned that this restaurant is extremely busy. Reservations should be made before you come to this restaurant especially at peak lunch/ dinner hours.

Cons: NONE

so, I was there when shaneequa and her group (pls see below comments) were there ... and indeed my group, being used to Burger King and Dominos, glanced hard at what the laughing table was ordering.

Everything looked delicious! Albeit I did notice a look of pukish disgust passed over a very adorable man's face as he involuntarily exclaimed - ai yah to a dish that sounded good to this group of non-asians .... succulent roast beef with fries! Hello, Applebees!

They did order (or rather, I guess it's this Mimi character) this interesting concoction of fried shrimp in a weaved basket. Again, while the rest of the group turned to hurl, this dish was plunged into and ravished by some. As they turned the dish, i noticed ... the once alive but now fried the hell out of it Shrimp was sitting moist in a bucketful of Miracle Whip. I didn't even know Chinese people ate Miracle Whip! And Shanequa was right! there was a telltell stream of bright orange which was proudly identified as velveeta.

Um, even us - a table who grew up on casseroles - could barely contain our disgust. As certain members of the party proceeded to stir lovingly this abomination, we noticed giggling that there was indeed a Del Monte fruit cocktail below all that mess! Unfortunately no cherries ... i believe the cherries were plucked for another dish. Ai yah - those chinese restaurants are SO creative!

So, in one AAAAAAAA-mazing moment, we have a combination of fried-until-limp shrimp, 2 jars of Miracle Whip and a glazed topping of velvetta mixed together and highlighted with syruppy fruit cocktail

After seeing this dish, we no longer go to chinatown and proceed to eat at Midtown and Upper Westside chinese places .... sure, it isn't authetic but it aint no mayo-y, cheesy, fruity fried shrimp
either!

That dish, BTW, was not clawed by anyone except perhaps the feistiest of them all...

my friend nuoc nam du du and i were seriously lusting for the scrumptious chicken stuffed with minced shrimp, the highest desideratum of haute chinese cooking. so before the summer doldrums descended, i decided to get the posse together at amazing 66. having fostered a fraternal bond with miss chan, the feisty but filthy gorgeous maitre?d, we turned to her guidance for an empyrean feast. ms chan, whom i personally worship as the deus ex machina of noveau chinoise cuisine, might have presumed that as we had amongst us, the chimera (who was of anglo-saxon descent), that our palates would gravitate towards the more ?westernized fusion? offerings. she cogently pitched the silky smooth roast beef, which i almost fell prey to until she revealed that it came with a side of fries and dinner rolls. of course we were no fools and opted to study the menu diligently. well at least two of us did, as the rest would not stop yacking.

having chosen most of the dishes and vetoing mimi twice, (yes readers, this is that same mimi i wrote about in the shanghai yeah review) i felt guilty and allowed her to make a contribution. with alacrity, she went straight for the shrimp with mayo and fruit cocktails nested on a taro basket. when asked how she reached that decision, she pointed around us ?look, every table ordered one!?.

fifi and i rolled our eyes with disgust when the dish arrived. not only was the shrimp drowining in mayo, it was topped with impregnable coats of velveeta? resting underneath, the fruit cocktail was an unpleasant surprise that reminded one of canned del monte, a staple in the third world?

we would never return had it not been for miss chan?s gratuitous soup and desserts, and that generous discount. next time, we predict that mimi will go for the fish with peach slices? also, du du suggested that we do a cleansing ceremony by symbolically dipping the mayo drenched shrimps into cups of hot tea, to signify purification and release.

I've never had Cantonese-style food quite like this before. Everything was extremely fresh and ultra delicious. We went there to eat for a friend's birthday. Let's just say, there wasn't much table conversation because everyone was too busy eating! I definitely recommend the scungilli and the steamed crab & sticky rice. Can't wait to go back.

Pros: Scungilli, steamed crab & sticky rice, and the quail.

Cons: Area can be difficult to find parking. But it's well worth it.
