We have been to Tang Pavilion before and returned because the food was good and the portions were large, BUT . . . This time the food was mediocre and the portions were not large. We were a party of 8. The restaurant is beautiful. A very classy atmosphere. The waiters are constantly attentive but not pushy. I give them... More

Found this place by accident when looking for some better food alternatives near the Hilton Hotel. Very interesting traditional dishes served in a very classy manner. Real china and charm as well as a warm, welcoming staff and waiter. Nice to have been seated in the back room instead of near the front door when it was cold and rainy... More

We have been coming here for many years and the food and service are always good. The test for us is can you go back several times and still have the same positive experience. Over the years we may have been here 20 times and always a excellent meal. Also for midtown NYC the price is very fair.

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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
