Chinese in Murray Hill

Just tried China Palace last night.. nothing special, wouldn't order again from them. Wild Ginger, Hunan on 5th, pretty good, but again, nothing special. Is there any very good chinese in Murray Hill? Anyone?

  1. Grand sichuan on 33rd and lex and Wu Liang Ye on 40th and Lex are the two best in Murray Hill.

    Some people love it, but personally, I think Noodles on 28 is horrendous. Expensive and all the dishes have heavy, cornstarchy, gloppy sauces. I also occassionally order from Mee Noodle Shop on 30th and 2nd for spare ribs or roast pork over rice.

    1. Heavenly Bamboo, perhaps a bit outside of Murray Hill at 39th bet. Madison & 5th, serves the standards and the familiar but also has great Shanghai style cooking with the best soup dumplings and veggie dumplings I've had in NYC so far.

      1. Jimmy's house on 24th and 3rd avenue.

        1. Phoenix Garden on 40th b/t 2nd and 3rd. Excellent Cantonese style food...if you go there, it's BYOB as well. Essentially a taste of Chinatown without traveling down there....

              I like Evergreen too - especially their scallion pancakes.
