This is probably the best Chinese place on the UWS. Great food in a really nice atmosphere. I've gone here a number of times in the last few months, and I've never been disappointed.

The only negative thing (and it's a small one) is that the staff sometimes can be gruff or slow to offer good tables, extra sauce, etc, etc. But they're very accommodating once asked, and on balance it's a great place.

Pros: food, atmosphere

Some of the best Chinese food I have had in some time. The menu is very extensive and has nearly everything you could wish for. I am a fan of the all inclusive dinner - run about $35 for two people and $16 or so for every additional person - it makes ordering easy and is quite tasty. Prices are reasonable and the service was great. Highly recommended!

Pros: foods,service

The quality of average chinese chain food does not merit the kind of grief you get from these delivery guys. I literally live a block away from this place and they still roll their eyes or grunt at the tip i give them, which is more than adequate. Also, you have to ask these people for napkins and utensils, otherwise they dont include them. Kinda ridiculous for the prices they charge.

Pros: decent food (you know what you're getting)

Cons: rude delivery, prices, no napkins and utensils incl.

I ate at the West side China Fun on Sunday night. My first time there. I had the chicken with mixed vegetables in brown sauce. I thought it tasted not-good, but it was even worse than that, I was awoken in the night with FOOD POISONING. I called the restaurant the next day (yesterday - I was home all day being ill) and spoke with the manager, Steve, who proceeded to yell at me "My chicken is not bad!" (read: he would not acknowledge the chicken was bad, and continued to serve it to unsuspecting diners), and he further refused to refund me the $22 I spent for the privilege of being sick. I would NEVER ever eat here again and I warn everyone out there that you too could get sick and the management will not care! I will report this to the health dept as well, as this is beyond rotten!

This place used to be better. They've turned to the mediocre and bland. I even asked for extra spicy and it was still bland. Large menu, lots of choices, good for large groups, but not the "let's go out of the way place" it used to be. Staff is polite but cold and tries to rush the table turn-over.

I work in the area and have a choice between quite a few restaurants, but China Fun is the best. Their lunch specials are just $5 and the portions are big. A definite must if your in the area.

Does anyone know what happened to the Stone Forest Chow Fun? It was not the same the last couple times---It was always the same for years, dependably perfect ??? It was always one of my most craved for dishes. Thanks
I do love the place though--One Thanksgiving I took five people there and filled every inch of the table with our favorites. And we weren't arrested for not having turkey.

This is not the China Fun that we know when we went away last year, and thank goodness it's a heck of a lot better than before--the food, service, atmosphere, everything. It just might become the best chinese in the neighborhood....

Pros: Food, service, atmosphere

Cons: Bathrooms a bit tight

Even though this place has been on Columbus Ave for many, many years. I never stepped into it until after their recent renovation. The reasoning being that before it looked so much like a take-out joint. But now the place has absolutely transformed itself into possibly a mecca for dim sum and chinese on the UWS. The open kitchen is no longer and pushed back to the rear (thank you, tired concept) and the dining room has been expanded as a result. The food was delish and the service on par. Great job, China Fun People!

Pros: Terrific Neighborhood Find

.

This restaurant has had a complete makeover, and it looks terrific, with high undulating wooden ceilings and a decor resembling a Chinese courtyard! And the food has also improved dramatically. We had a dim sum brunch last Saturday and even though the place was mobbed, the veggie buns came out piping hot, turnip cakes with nice and crispy outside, mooshy inside (the way its suppose to be) and not a slick of extra grease. The roast pork we had was tender and melt in your mouth delicious, and the waitress who served us was beyond accomodating, and even brought our daughter a mini dough boy made with dumpling dough!!! You can't beat that!

Pros: Great food and atmosphere

China Fun has begun a avalanche of curiosity. Its food is not only more health conscious, it tastes better than what the normal, run of the mill chinese joint has to offer. Their noodles dont leave that grease residue in your mouth and their veggies and meats are all the more tasty....

Editorial from

We love the Stone Forest Chow Fun---shredded chicken in a piquant peanut-and-garlic sauce spangled with cilantro. And the chicken soup here is a true curative.
