Best

I can write a long review about how good the food and service is at Mr.K's but that sometime is not needed when i can sum it up in just a few words.

Worst

During my trip to NYC, a friend wanted to show me to a nice place, so we went to check out Mr. K's -- with its high ratings and all. Well, based on my experience, I'm quite puzzl...

Editorial review from GrubHub 2/9/2014

The food was excellent however the wait time was extremely long. I got two emails each one saying it would be longer than the previous time expected. If it weren't for that, I would have given them 5 stars. grubHub was very nice and gave me a bonus for having to wait so long. more

A terribly huge disappointment 1/18/2011

my family and I went to NYC for the weekend. We had been eating at wondeful restaurants all over the city until we came to Mr.K's. We would have been better off going to Leann Chins, that may even be an understatement. The food was cold, and bland, and terrible. My whole family was utterly disappointed to say the least, and it's hard to truly disappoint us. The whole venue was tacky, and I got a headache from the pink chairs, pink walls and tasteless place settings. Overall my point is to comment on the food, and it was bad. I wouldn't suggest you spend your money on overpriced tasteless Chinese at Mr. K's. more

Atmosphere! Service! FOOD WAS THE BEST! Superb! 9/16/2008

After reading some of the negative reviews, I really wanted to see for myself. I was visiting NYC for the 1st time and got tired of same old stuff! Especially the "I'm better than you" attitudes or the "Do you really belong here?" from the waiters in Manhattan. Being from the Cowboy State, (Wyoming in case you don't know) We can eat Steak and Italian anytime. Anyways, although we were somewhat intimidated at 1st, The waiter seemed to be walking on eggshells so the last thing we wanted to do was to offend the waiter! I Felt it was best to just ASK about the fancy table settings and the such that were being presented. The waiter was thrilled that he was being treated like a person and not a servant. He loosened up right away and was flattered that we didn't want to offend his culture and was more than happy to explain to us what the heck it was all about. The rest of our dining was a true delight. I had the Prawns/Scallops in Garlic sauce and my Wife had the Seafood Fried Rice. Wonton Soup was excellent ! As was the entire meal. Service was Great ! I truly think that by treating the waiter with respect and dignity made the evening even better and we were not the only ones that were pleased with the entire "event ". Highly recommended !!!!!! PS - Regardless of how you treat the waiter, It's definitely a 1st class operation there. Very pleasent time and educational for us I'm not not ashamed to admit. We will certainly go back when we return to NYC in the Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more

could be better 1/28/2008

Probably my favorite restaurant in the city. I have been eating here for years, and I never get tired of it. Lovers dumplings, crispy beef, and lemon chicken is a personal favorite. I would have no problem if they simply stuffed me full of food (from both sides!) like a Thanksgiving turkey, its really that good. Stick a chopstick in me, I am done more

5 starts on some things, 1 star on others 7/20/2007

Today was my third visit. Highly recommended for its beautiful art deco decor; lovely place settings, serving dishes, and cutlery; nice ambience; and excellent service. And these positive things are consistent -- they've been positive every time I have been. And, sometimes, the food is excellent and highly recommended, too. But that's the thing -- having spent $80 for lunch for two people, you don't want the food to be SOMETIMES outstanding -- you want it ALWAYS to be outstanding. Today, one of the dishes was WELL and truly below average -- the fried rice we got was SO SALTY we had to send the whole thing back (it was like eating a salt lick, as if they had poured salt on it before sending it out). Not even the slightest whiff of a problem sending it back (goes back to the excellent service), and when it came back, it tasted MUCH better, but they had removed ALL the chicken and shrimp from it, which is presumably what drove the cost of $15 fried rice. Definitely worth a visit for the positives -- send the food back for another try if it doesn't meet your standards (and it may, but it may well not). more

Best Chinese!! 7/6/2007

Great Chinese dishes. The sauces were delicious and the service was great, French serving style. The dumplings were delicious and expertly done. Ginger Basil chicken was great. The table setting was beautifully done with authentic Chinese style pieces. Nice high ceiling, beautifully decorated with Chinese vases and corals. more

Wasn't impressed. 4/4/2007

The food here is not good. Atmosphere and decor is pretentious and tacky. Had the sizzling pepper steak, west lake lobster, beef dumplings, and a noodle dish. Was not impressed by any one of them. I have had so much better. Everything tasted and looked like take-out food. And their desserts? Forget about it. I regret ordering them. Although the food is bad, I am going to be fair. The service is good. I really liked the workers. They are friendly and attentive. Bad food, good service. Pros: service Cons: food, decor more
