It was a very expensive order with average quality The General Tso chicken was so disappointed chicken with too much batter, over fried there is many other option in the area.

Staff were friendly unlike other Chinese restaurants in the area so that's a plus. The food is OK for a take-out place. But their General Tso, my go-to dish, is not as good as others. Also, do not order General Tso under Chef's Special because the portion is identical as dinner combo but more pricey which makes no sense.

We are always ordering take out, so I can't tell about the staff, but the food is always good. It's unexpensive, tasty and the plate are huge!

Food was generally good and on-time. However, with my last delivery, the crazy delivery guy was so rude and was yelling 'F*** You' at random people in the lobby of my building. Pretty embarrassing experience. I will NEVER order from here again...

Sixth happiness is your typical chinese takeout with the exception that it has some limited seating. The food is as good as your average takeout will be and the prices are a little higher to reflect the neighborhood. I wouldn't actively seek out this place to eat but overall it's pretty good.

You can't go wrong with this Chinese take out, especially if you are undecided what to eat. Have been here in 2002 and don't miss it whenever in this side of NY. It still is six happiness.

New York people in Florida say that you can't get good Chinese Food here. So when we were in NY 2 weeks ago we tried Six Happiness. Well we were certainly 2 Happy people. The food was hot and tasty. Better than anything we have had in Florida and just as good as what we had in Brooklyn. This was... More

This is basically a take out place since it has very limited seating. We order here all the time primarily because there are such limited choices in our area. However, we find the food pretty good and freshly made. The price is a little more and the portions are a little smaller because it is downtown NYC. But, it is... More

On a recent visit to NYC, I was desperate for good Chinese food and stumbled on this place. Really wish I hadn't. Food was not tasty and the table was sticky and gross. One of the delivery guys even sat at my table while I was eating. I made the mistake of going here so you don't have to.

I have never been to this place, but I have ordered food on Seamless several times. I tried the dumplings, the soup, the spring rolls, the noodles and the different meat with vegetables (good old beef/chicken and broccoli is the best!). So, ignoring the quality of the place, that of the food is great and the prices are aligned (if... More

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.
