Best Chinese Delivery UES (90's)

I just moved to NYC and am craving good Chinese delivery. I am scared to try any without recs. I am in the mid-90's near 3rd Ave. Any suggestions?
Welcome to the neighborhood! I'm a bit west of you, but am guessing the delivery areas are the same.
To my mind, not a lot of great options. Chef Ho's is okay, and I like the fact you can get half a peking duck. I really like their wonton soup, less thrilled w/ their dumplings, which have a very heavy dough. There's always Wu Liang Ye - I've had excellent meals in, but some rather disappointing delivery experiences. And - abashed as I am to mention this - Tang Tang delivers to your area and has wonderful cold sesame noodles and I'm also partial to their scallion pancakes. I think all three have menus at www.menupages.com.

Wu Liang Ye
215 E 86th St, New York, NY 10028
1328 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10021
Dishes I've enjoyed at Wu Liang Ye:
House Cured Pork sauteed with Garlic Bolts
Sauteed Sponge Cucumbers
Sliced Scungilli with Roasted Chili Vinaigrette
Sliced Beef Tendon with Roasted Chili Vinaigrette
Hand Shredded Chicken with Spicy Sesame Vinaigrette
Julienne Jelly Fish with Scallion Pesto
Sichuan Pork Dumpling with Roasted Chili Vinaigrette.
For just standard but tasty Americanized Chinese, First Wok is fresh fast and cheap, and they give free sodas!
We ordered from Pig Heaven last week and I was very impressed - had a small ordering of suckling pig, a Peking Duck, some dumplings and scallion pancakes. Not cheap, but well prepared.
