Shun Lee Cafe

With Shun Lee Cafe conveniently located across from Lincoln Center, Dim Sum is just the ticket. The Cafe, a black and white checkerboard dining room, decorated with images from the Chinese calendar.
Terrific Dim Sum on rolling carts in constant motion and a variety of dishes in smaller portions completes the menu at Shun Lee Cafe. The Cafe is a great pre-theater stop for a “quick” dinner.

"Great location for pre or post Lincoln Center! We had an early dinner (5pm) which was a good time to go, it was nice a quiet, although by the time we left the cafe was full and noisy. The service was great, dim sum on rolling carts got you eating pretty quickly and before we knew it, our main dishes were there. We had Grand Marnier Prawns (which I liked very much), beef and broccoli, Buddha's Delight and Young Chow Ten Ingredient Fried Rice, overall we enjoyed our meal."

"Shun Lee Cafe was a great choice for dinner before Lincoln Center and I often enjoyed going there for both the menu and the dim sum. Our last dinner there was enormously disappointing. The service was lackadaisical at best. The dim sum selection was quite limited. The usual care in preparation of the food was absent and the orange flavor beef was no better than what I could get from the greasy corner Chinese take-out. Every place has the occasional off night, but the experience here was not my old friend SLC."

"Although I have dined several times at the Shun Lee Cafe, my dinner on a Saturday night at 6:15 was not a memorable experience and I will think twice before dining there at that time. I know this is a busy time but the restaurant seemed to be sorely understaffed. My companion and I waited waited close to twenty minutes before a waiter took our order. I had to ask the Host several times for some attention. The food was fine, not amazing but not outstanding. Although online a gluten free menu was announced the was no sign of that on the menu, and because the two waiters we saw were so busy and rushed it was not possible to inquire. Perhaps at a less busy time this option could be explored.
Being situated close to Lincoln Center makes this restaurant a helpful place to eat. However, more staff on Saturday nights would be a great benefit.

"Shun Lee Cafe is a good reliable spot for super before a concert at Lincoln Center. The menu has standard fare and the dim sum is varied. Recently the fried dumplings have been tough and doughy, but, by and large, the quality of the food is good. The waiters seem harried. But I have never been late for a concert--in at 6:00 out easily by 7:00."

"Have been coming here infrequently for some time. Last night was a big disappointment. We were in the cafe part of the restaurant which is more casual than the Main restaurant and ordered Th dum sum. They were gummy and Sri except for the shrimp dumplings. I bit down on a piece of metal, showed the waiter and actually had to ASK to take that item off my bill!! The 1/2 Peking duck which used to be their specialty was cold, soggy and owning in plum sauce and the separate duck leg was a dried outdid appointment. We told the waiter twice we needed to leave for the theater by 7:30 yet he disappeared so we had to flag the manager down to get our check."

"Not sure why so many negative reviews indicating sharp fall-off in service at this long-running Lincoln Center neighborhood spot. I've also eaten here for many years because it offers affordable, light meals before a Linc. Ctr. performance (better a light than a heavy meal that leaves you snoozing during the performance.) On a recent visit found the service to be just as efficient as in the past, and found a large variety of appropriately hot dim sum still on offer. We did try the Peking duck for the first time -- while it was very tasty -- seemed like a rather small portion -- a half duck produced just 2 smallish pancakes each for 2 people. Plus a very small piece of duck on the bone that was more like a garnish."

"This is a very reliable and yummy place for before theatre orOpera. The convenience is worth it but better yet the food is consistently good. Service is efficient though can be brusk. They get you out in time for where ever you're going. After the rush crowd eating is more leisurely. Everything is good there!! Dim sum is renowned."

"I don't under stand all the negative reviews. My reservation was at 6:00 pm on a Saturday night. Although they were very busy, I was seated promptly. The service was very good and friendly.
The meal was perfectly paced and not rushed. Food was excellent. I was very pleased and would not hesitate to come again.

"We hadn't previously tried Shun Lee Cafe. They are next door to Shun Lee West and seem to share a kitchen. They gave us both menus, and we could order from either one. It appeared that there were many of the same dishes on both menus, but the ones from the Cafe menu were about $10 cheaper ($19 instead of $29, for example). We found the decor very cheerful, the service very good, and the food delicious. The walls are a black and white checkerboard, which is a design that I love. Not as luxurious as Shun Lee West, but a place we'll come back to for good value.
I appreciated that when I had a question about the ingredients of one dish because of allergies, the waiter called over the manager to answer my questions."

"The service was poor. We had to ask for clean chop sticks and then the server removed our forks after first course and never brought another one to us. We didn't enjoy the atmosphere as it was too quiet, with no music. Overall we were very disappointed in the food and dining experience."
