Wonderful – My husband and I frequently need to be in Manhatten on business and we eat at Tse Yang's on 34 E 51st St. almost everytime we go there. The food is outstanding and it always arrives hot and is served by gentelmen who are polite and professional.
My favorite dish is General Tso's Chicken and it is not on their menu. I asked the waiter what dish was close to that and he assured me that the kitchen would make the dish for me even though it was not on the menu.
It was the best I ever had and they have prepared it for me ever since.
My husband is really fond of a dish that is Grey Sole and has never found it anywhere else.
The place is very clean which is a qualification that is high on my list. Nothing about the restraurant is cheap including the prices. You get what you pay for and at Tse Yang's you get the best. I noticed your reviews are very old and maybe thoses people should give it another chance. We have recommended it to many who have also liked it.
They have a part time bar tender named Louie who adds to the pleasure if you arrive early and deceide to have an drink at the bar before going to your table.
Avoid if possible.An insult to Chinese food lovers. – This place overcharges and the food is overfried,places sugar in sauces which shouldn't have sugar in them,and misrepresents its spicey dishes as spicey when they were not.My guest and I complained about the portions which were shockingly small and our waiter gave us a condescending response which is unnecessary to repeat.Despite the interior design which is impressive the lunch was an expensive embarrassment.
Horrible experience! – We planned a birthday celebration at Tse Yang's for our daughter. We had been there several years ago, and thought it was great. But our experience last Thursday night was beyond horrid.
Although the staff assisting at the table were friendly, the head waiter for our group of 11 was rude beyond words. To begin with, he announced over the entire table (in front of our guests) "you know there is a $65 minimum per person for a group this size." We ordered several starters, to be shared amongst the group and when they arrived, he started plating one piece of each item. When I asked that they simply set the dishes out for people to choose what they wanted he glared at me, then snatched the plates off the table and scraped everything back onto the serving platters! The had set the wine on a side board, and whenever we needed to have more wine poured, I had to go find him.
The food was bad - there's no other way to explain it. The only redeeming dish was a salt & pepper shrimp so we asked for a second platter of those. Our mistake, the second platter was too salty to eat. Peking Duck was a joke - cold and poorly prepared. The duck meat presented after the duck wraps tasted like it had been tossed with barbeque sauce. Awful!
Let's sum up - terrible service, bad food and over-priced. The final bill totaled nearly $130 per person!
