  • “Great service and real Chinese food not deep fried frozen food topped with MSG. The staff is friendly and it is a great spot to go and eat with friends after work. The cocktails are as good as the food. ”

  • “I love Cafe China, but I can't understand why they give me reused chopsticks that are full of splinters. It's absolutely ridiculous, it's unsafe, and it's cheap. Your food is wonderful, use decent chopsticks.”

  • “Great authentic Chinese food with no MSG (coming from a Chinese-American foodie). Delivery is always on time and friendly. For healthy greens with great flavor, try the stir fried snow pea shoots with garlic. Crystal shrimp dumplings and pork dumplings in chili oil are also good.”

  • “Consistently good... Their hot and sour soup is the best ever! And I have not found any restaurant who can match - even a little - their ma po tofu. Cafe China I Love You. PS: Customer service is awesome there! They call you if delivery may take longer, etc... ”

  • “Great Food. Seriously really great food, the best, most authentic and freshest in midtown.... but the delivery service stinks. Allow at least and hour and a half for delivery.... expect that that your food may be spilled.... and probably cold. ”

  • “Food took two hours to arrive. The seamless estimate was 30-45 minutes. When it did, it was no longer hot and sauce for the dumplings was missing. We called twice after about and hour to try and see what the deal was, both times we were brushed off and told the food was on it's way. Too bad because the food itself is decent, but for the hassle -- and the price, this is more than most Chinese -- you can do much better. Won't order here again. ”

  • “Cafe China is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in NYC. After spending a summer in Beijing, whenever I get the craving for some authentic Chinese fare, I head over to Cafe China. Since it's near my office, I order dinner from here as much as possible. They deliver very quickly as well! Best kept secret...”
