Chinese Restaurant Reviews In New York City
Discount Chinese Restaurants in New York City near the Broadway Theatres
Some might argue that all Chinese food tastes the same. While I’ve never made it all the way to China, I can say I know the difference between poor, mediocre and great Chinese food. Anyone can throw rice in a wok, but not everyone has the secret touch. At Tang, we discovered what good food minus the grease really means plus we didn’t mind that it didn’t feel like we were dining in a generic Chinese restaurant either. Specializing in Shanghai cuisine, we were intrigued by what the cold lamb belly might look and taste like, however, we were more drawn to start with the house special wonton soup for two ($4.25). A fewminutes after ordering, a large bowl appeared filled with succulent wontons, pork and a sweet tasty broth that made me think I could have just stopped eating right there. Luckily we didn’t. We moved on to share the jumbo shrimp and scallops in garlic sauce ($9.95) which had a nice amount of fresh seafood in an aromatic mouth-watering sauce. The beef with oyster sauce ($8.95) was soft and tender but the filet with sesame ($15.95) was divine and went incredibly well with Tang’s stir-fried noodles ($7.95). We did notice many diners ordering up their sweet and sour pork as well but we had no room on the table! While there are some dishes that range in price from $18-$25, all dishes can (and should) be shared. Friendly and attentive wait staff was the cherry on the cake of our dining experience at Tang. I’m already looking forward to my next visit.
