I used to get delivery from this place on nights I worked late in Lower Manhattan. The dishes, according to my Chinese coworkers, are authentic Sichuan and Shanghai style and are surprisingly great quality for takeout/delivery prices. Since changing jobs and now uptown, I still crave Yangtze and have gone back many times in groups to eat there at the restaurant. Being pretty far downtown in Battery Park City, I never have a problem getting a table, the service is really polite, food is consistently good. I typically end dinner with a nice walk along the waterfront to work off the calories. To people who don't stray far from the typical Beef and Broccoli or General Tso's Chicken, the large menu selection can be kind of intimidating, so here are my recommendations: Appetizers: Drunken Chicken Entrees: Miso Fish, Braised Chicken with Napa Cabbage, Beef with Chili Pepper, Conch.
