Shun Lee West

Conveniently located across from Lincoln Center and a startling revelation in shiny black lacquer, Shun Lee exudes Asian chic with grand authority.
For haute Chinese cuisine, it’s among New York City’s best. Regional offerings include crispy Grand Marnier prawns with honey walnuts (Canton), braised sea bass in hot bean sauce (Hunan) and shredded beef with leeks and hot peppers (Szechwan). Specialties include beggar’s chicken baked in lotus leaves and clay (requires one day’s notice), Hunan tripe, sweetbreads with black mushrooms and of course, Beijing Duck.

"The Chinese food that we had was terrific, exactly what you would expect from an upscale place like this. But given that it was Chinese food, the place was a bit expensive, with most dishes in the $30 dollar range. Given that it was NY and convenient, we know you must pay, but for dished that will else were cost 10-15, this was high. We all remarked that probably after everyone leaves for the concert or the Opera, they probably bring out the regular menu. Still terrific food."

"Don't go there. It is the worst Chinese food I had in my three years living in NYC. Shun Lee charges a premier price so one may think their food is of good quality. Not true. It is worse than third-rate Chinese restaurants. We ordered the Beijing Duck and Sea bass in Black Bean Sauce. Both were subpar. The presentation was also sloppy, third-rate. Don't go there. If Shun Lee wants to stay there and charge as they are charging now, they better find a good chef."

"This has become a favorite spot for our regular quarterly meeting of friends. Great place for top notch food, terrific service with personality and comfortable seating to talk about life and purpose. Duck, Prawns with walnuts, and spare ribs are delicious. And dining under the dragon adds the perfect touch!"

"We had asked for a table away from noisey service stations. In spite of the fact that the restaurant was only 15% full, we were placed at a table plagued by service trays set up directly behind us. The trays bumped into our backrests. Waiters shouted loudly to other waiters ten feet away. Unpleasant."

"If you are looking for exceptional Chinese food near the Lincoln Center scene, Shun Lee is a food lover's dream. My husband and I shared two remarkable entrees that included a nest filled with seafood variety that was perfect. His noodle dish complimented the selection. We had no complaints with any part of the actual meal. But oh the noise and the feeling of being cramped. We could hardly hear ourselves talk but we certainly could hear the couples seated behind and next to us, as well as a table full of 10 seated in what should have been an aisle. We certainly will return but not on a busy Saturday night."

"The restaurant itself was quite attractive - however, the food was not very good. We ordered off the price fixe luncheon menu. My entree Crispy Duck turned out to be shredded duck in a eggroll type vessel. If we had not been pressed for time, I would have returned the entree.
Next time I would try the Cafe if there will be a next time.

"I love Chinese food and Shun Lee doesn't disappoint when the food is delivered. But the value is questionable. You go for the atmosphere which, for a Chinese restaurant used to be unique. However, there are now enough upscale Chinese restaurants in NYC that it is no longer unique.
When we went, after 9 pm on a Friday, the place was dead. The service was gruff at times and not especially warm. When we were seated, there was an odd gritty sand like substance on my place. When I was served a beer, I was given a glass with lipstick on it. These are not hallmarks of the service one would expect to get for these prices.
The two of us split Shanghai Dumplings (two each) and a red snapper with scalions & ginger. Both very nice.
Like, I said, this place has solid food. I just wouldn't call it a good value per se."

"Inexpensive lunch menu however not impressed with the duck & walnuts (duck hid in a heavily encased fried breaded batter). My friend, a vegetarian, thought her eggplant entrée was insufficient.
Service was very good & nice décor.

"It is a great to know Shun Lee West is there when we want a fun and gracious place to meet friends. It is also convenient to Lincoln Center and they are experts at getting you out the door on time. The service has always been courteous and prompt. The food I've had has been good. I have had friends say a dish was dull here and there but I have found dishes on the menu that are bright and lively."

"The food was good as always, the place quiet at lunch. We like Shun Lee West because it is close to Lincoln Center, where we go to the opera and the symphony frequently. Our last visit happened to be during New York's restaurant week. Shun Lee had a lunch menu for $25, which normally is $26. This includes soup or appetizer, main course and dessert (ice cream or fresh pineapple). My husband ordered muu shu pork, I ordered honey walnut shrimp. Both were outstanding. For appetizer we had spring rolls and soupy Shanghai dumplings. These dumplings are amazing. They are round bundles, filled with some pork and a delicious broth. You put some ginger sauce on top. When you bite into it, you have to be careful not to lose all the broth, because it is truly fabulous. I hope to return there soon to have more of these dumplings."

"There are very few Cantonese restaurants left in the City. Shun Lee was one of the last; the food reminded me of Sunday evening family dinners growing up in Brooklyn. Shun Lee was never great but it was good enough. I'm afraid it's slipped below that minimal standard. Ribs served luke warm, vegetable fried rice with virtually no vegetables and wanton soup with only scraps of noodle and no meat (it was sent back; it had obviously been ladled from the very top). Service remains good and the atmosphere has a nice vibe but don't go for the food."

"Got to the restaurant and was told they did not have my reservation. While at the host station I receive an email from open table telling me I didn't show up for my reservation. I found this extremely annoying and the host really didn't care. Our waiter was brisk and rude telling one in our party that green tea doesn't have enough caffeine in it for her to worry. Where does he get off saying something like that?? The food just isn't good enough to tolerate such behavior. Won't go back."

"There is a reason this place has been around for a long time - it is good. The food, service and decor are very pleasant and it adds a sense of refinement over its competitors in Chinatown. The menu is extensive and the dim dum as well as the regular menus are good value."
