This is my "go to" Midtown Chinese restaurant when visiting the city. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxed. The only glitch this time was an error in my take-out order (I usually dine-in) when I ordered crispy sesame beef but received sesame chicken instead. Still good. The crispy beef is excellent, though. I also enjoy the soup... More

Ate lunch in this unassuming restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. The sauces were incredible, the food fresh and hot and the service excellent (despite the above reviews!). And the lunch menu is embarrassingly inexpensive. Great place.

We didn't really know this place and decided to go for it in the last min as an adventure. It turned out to be the best chinese restaurant so far we found in new york. All food we ordered is authentically cooked and tasted delicious. The atmosphere is nice and cozy. Lighting is perfect (not overly bright), which is not... More

We arrived and within 3 minutes we had our starter, before we were half way through they were trying to take the plates away to serve our mains. The waiters did not clear the table! The food was served cutting across our chest! Whilst eating out mains again they were trying to clear our plates!! We were then told..."we are... More

Pretty decent soup of spinach and chicken. Pretty decent steamed shrimp and broccoli . Lousy and rude attitude of some waiters at the end of our lunch who had the audacity to embarrass me stating that my cards were declined, when apparently I called up the credit card companies and was told that they did not even have any evidence...

We found this restaurant by chance , don't let the scaffolding around the front of the restaurant put you off , it really is worth a try. The food was of a high standard with good size portions that can be shared . Service was efficient , and the vodka and diet cokes were huge ! If you are in... More

We had a great lunch at Tang Pavilion, the food was delicious and well presented, the portions generous and the fresh fruit at the end of the meal was a really nice touch. The décor is plain but elegant, he service overall was good but the waiters spend too much time talking to each other and playing with their cell... More

Stuck in a row of small restaurants is this gem. When I looked at the website, I was expecting a hole in the wall but this place was top drawer. Excellent service, full bar and decent wine list. Food was fresh, tasty and served with style. We had shrimp and vegetable dumplings, beef with broccoli , two types of shrimp,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
