I order out from Uptown at least once a week, and have ordered from both the Chinese and Japanese sections of their menu. I have not been disappointed once! The staff is always very friendly and courteous, and my food is always ready when I show up (I only live 5 min away). The dining room itself is pretty bare-bones, I've only dined in once with a friend - definitely not a date place! But they are great for take out and delivery, and are open quite late for the Upper East side until 11:30 PM (as of the date of this review).
Pros: Great Chinese and Japanese food, low prices, fast delivery
Cons: No ambience, sparsely decorated dining room
