Find an employee who can converse. – I called twice before finding an employee who could help me pick a sushi/sashimi. Decent ingredients, service time as promised, and reasonable prices considering the location.
Great place to have a quiet, cozy meal – I come here for lunch all the time and dinner when I end up staying late around the area. They have great chinese and japanese food and beverages too. It's a small place but it's a very clean and cozy (so comfortable).
Keep up the good work, chef 28!
Great Lunch Spot – I work right around the corner from this place - they have GREAT lunch specials, both Chinese and Japanse food. Great price, great service, great food. We visit all the time and will continue to go back!
Christine of Chef 28 says "Best in New York" I AGREE – Years ago I worked a block away and ate at Chef 28 all the time. Now I am across town and seldom in the neighborhood. The "best things in life" are hard to forget. That is why I always return to Chef 28. I make a point to be in the neighborhood when I am in need for a GREAT lunch.
Today I made sure to schedule a business appointment around lunch time so that I could frequent my favorite lunch spot in the city. Take my word and visit this place when your in the neighborhood. And tell Christine at the front, she is right. "The Best in New York"
Crazy person answers phone – I order from this place probably about once every 2 weeks- the same thing...steamed chicken and mixed vegetables. Today I called to place my order and was told that they don't make that dish. I said "I know it's not a lunch special, but it is on your regular menu". Crazy lady said "that is impossible, we don't make that dish". Come on. Who has time for this?
Surprisingly Great Chinese in Midtown – My friend and I had dinner here on New Years Eve, since every other place had inflated menu prices. So glad we did! For the price you pay for Chinese food, it was great. And the quality was very good too! We got the seafood pan fried noodle and some other shrimp and veggie dish with rice. They were both big portions, and everything was fresh! Plus, we got so many jumbo size shrimps, clean, in our dishes! Even when you eat in Chinese places in Flushing/Chinatown, you might not get that! So I thought based on those 2 dishes, the quality is pretty good, esp since its not anywhere near Chinatown, and the value is good too. There is also a sushi menu, but we didn't have any.
Ambience--it's a nice place! Very clean and the staff was very attentive. It doesn't feel like a "quick meal" place, but a stop in, eat comfortably, and then go on your way place. I would def eat here again if I'm craving for Chinese food around this area, and would def come by for lunch during work as well.
Good Value – We just ordered delivery for the first time. It was ok. For the price, the food was good. The chicken was fine and the soup was ok. If you are looking for a place that delivers pretty quickly and is worth the price, give this place a try.
Best Japanese/Chinese food for the money – My husband and I have been coming to Chef 28 for over 15 years. They recently went through a much needed renovation and not only does it look fabulous but the food is delicious. The service is prompt and very friendly. The Manhattan roll is to die for, and everything is fresh.
What a find!! – They have an extensive menu. I've had 3 items:
Vietnamese Sesame Chicken Rolls
Spicy Shrimp Wonton Dumplings
Shrimp Dumplings (Har Gow)
They are each perfection! I'm afraid to try anything else here, and shouldn't be!!
Service with a smile, and the finest Har Gow in New York City. Who'd have thought it possible on East 28th Street?
Great value for delivery – I've never actually been inside the place, but have ordered delivery at least once a week for the past couple of months. The dinner specials come with a nice, if simple, salad with tasty dressing, soup, choice of brown or white rice, and your choice of a generous selection of entrees, all for less than $8. For me it usually ends up being three meals worth! The hot and sour soup is not great, but the won ton soup is quite lovely, and both the gong pao chicken and broccoli beef are tasty. The gong pao chicken varies in spiciness though. I like it spicy!
