Haven't been there recently -how is food these days. I used to go very often up until the days P Diddy or whatever his name is these days made it too popular and a bit thuggish to enjoy. Used to love the Peking duck. Anyone know how they charge for this dish? My recollection was that it was $40/person which is very steep especially if its one of many courses. What other dishes are good to order-granted I use that term loosely cause I know they don't usually give you menus.

    I haven't been to that location for years, but when I went to the one in Tribeca, there was a $59 Peking duck prix fixe:

      Place is just a huge rip off and isn't good. You want Peking duck in Midtown... try (of all places) Peking Duck House on 53rd. Excellent food and obsequious service. My go to chinese in midtown
