Need good Chinese restaurant for wedding rehearsal dinner 25-30 people

We're looking for a good Chinese restaurant in Manhattan, preferably with a private room to host a wedding rehearsal dinner for around 25-30 people. I've been considering Shun Lee and Wu Liang Ye - the former is pricy and the latter doesn't have a private room. Any other suggestions out there? Thanks so much!

    I have throw similar parties at Mr. Kays, midtown on Lexington. They have a number of private rooms. Service is very good, they are professionals and the GM is on the ball in regard to parties and the like. Good luck.

      If you are looking for a midtown location, Peking duck house in midtown has a private room in the back.
      Also consider Obao, which is Viet/Thai on the same street. One of my friends had a wedding rehearsal there in their backroom and it was wonderful. Food is delicious as well as it's one of my favorite lunch spots. They have a small outdoor terrace in the back you can use in the winter months too.
      There is also restaurant called Lychee house. Call to see if they have a private room.

      Then there is new Chinese tea house. Very good food and really clean with great service. Also ask to see if they have a private room as it was a large restaurant.
