Chinese resturant for 50th BDay

I am turning 50 and have @ 60+ coming from all over to Manhattan to celebrate.
I need atmosphere/great food/ private room/not in Flushing (too many out of towners) and
not $$$$
Can be funky but no hole in the wall.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Well, I don't know about private room rentals, though it's huge, so there may be such a thing, but PING'S has great seafood, boisterous atmosphere (lots of fish tanks and gold statuary) and good prices.

      Thank you for your response, will add it to my list.

    2. Harmony Palace may be worth considering. They certainly have the space. I haven't been there for a banquet in years, but the fact that Chinese folks continue to rent it out for large community functions and wedding banquets indicates to me that they haven't slipped.

        I will check it out on my tour of Chinatown places.

      2. Wu Liang Ee in midtown is REAL chinese food (but approachable for even teh squeamish) and for large groups Mr. K's on Lexington - also has great food.

          1. I've only been to Ping's in Manhattan, but it was great. Congee Village is also good for groups.

              Yeah, but I seem to remember that the biggest private room at Congee Village seats 50. That's why I didn't mention them before.
