Went there for a friends gathering. It located just next to the Rockefeller center. Must be there for 20 plus years. The food is decent. We ordered the normal home style food, with a lot of vegetables. The tastes are good. The prices are reasonable, considering the location. A good place to have Chinese food.

Up a dozen stairs this is a reasonable find in midtown New York. An extensive menu but you can speak to the managers to get detailed information about food. Good selection of beers and some wines.

Went in here Xmas eve and arrived at 9.20 so questioned if we were too late to be seated. We were told it was fine but needed to get the order in quickly. We were then not offered any drinks and rushed out of the restaurant by the rude staff chucking the bill on the table. The service was that... More

I am Chinese and even though I was born and grew up in UK, I appreciate good, authentic Chinese food (I have lots of mainland Chinese friends). Came to New York for a business trip and saw that the restaurant was described as "authentic" so I popped in to try. I ordered the braised fish with chilli oil and immediately... More

This has to be the best Chinese restaurant by far! I went as part of a group and had an incredible array of Chinese food. Would definitely go back again and again!

I have been coming here for about two decades and still find it the best Chinese in the City. To truly appreciate it requires you to have broad tastes or at least a sense of adventure. My favorites here include Beef with Capsicum, jelly fish, razor clams, tripe, and fish filets. When I'm with a more willing partner I order... More

Dined at Wu Liang Ye this week with business friends. 5 of us allowed the waiter to make several suggestions and were pleased with the dishes and service. Food came out very fast. We started with 3 appetizer dishes plus spring rolls. Had the noodles, steamed dumplings and something else I cannot remember. All dishes were hot and fresh. Main... More

I come to NYC 2-3 times a year and make it to eat at Wu Laing Ye each time I visit. The restaurant is well located near Rockerfeller Center. You should make reservations since they are always busy, both for lunch and dinner. Portions are very large so consider sharing an entree.

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.
