Noodles on 28 jacked up their prices. Any recs for another chinese restaurant in Gramercy

I've been ordering for Noodles on 28 for years, but they recently increased their prices by what I consider a significant amount. I really can't bring myself to pay almost $14 for chicken and broccoli. I was thinking about trying Chef 28. Any thoughts?

Any additional recommendations for chinese restaurants in the Gramercy Area (I live on Lex and 26th) would be really appreciated. Thank you!!!!

    1. I'm pretty sure you're in the delivery zone for Wu Liang Ye and Szechuan Gourmet.

        Agreed with WLY. I dont know if Szechuan Gourmet would deliver there but they are great. But then again, if you just want chicken and broccolli i'm not sure these are the best choices.

      2. I live in your nabe on Lex and 27th and dislike Noodles on 28. Since the closing of Spade, sorely missed, I've ordered Chinese takeout from "Good Chinese Food" 157 E. 33rd (Lex/Third). Fast, inexpensive and very often delicious.

          As a side question, has anyone checked out that new place where Incredi used to be... Yan Yan?

            Tried a lunch special at Yan Yan and didn't really love it. It was a bit greasy, and the quality of chicken was a little lower then I was hoping, since I had finally tried Incredi and was pretty impressed.

            That said, I was always a Sam's devotee and the last time I tried Noodles on 28, I thought it was pretty I might have different taste, and a Noodle on 28 fan might just be perfectly happy with Yan Yan.

            Have not lived in the area for 1.5 years, but we used to order from Jimmy's too.

              I've lived around the corner from Jimmy House for 12 years and never heard of it until the recommendation of "princeofpork" and "valerie" above! I tried it last night and it was darned good. Great crispy duck, double sauteed pork and cantonese noodle soup.

                So glad you enjoyed it. Best Hot and Sour soup on the east side.

                  Glad you liked it too. I only wish we had a place like that in Westchester!
