This place has the best dumplings anywhere hands down. I recently was there and they had the soup dumplings that are so prevalent down in Chinatown. But sorry, I gotta say that CF...


the service was horrible at this place! our water glasses never got filled; ask for extra duck sauce and never came; removing our plates before we were done. table next to ours: "...

Mmm Scallion Pancakes! 4/14/2010

The food here is great! They're scallion pancakes are a must have! And unlike other Chinese restaurants their general tso's chicken has big chunks of chicken instead of just breading. I must admit when I do dine there I feel a bit rushed by the servers but if you just ignore them and focus on your delicious food in front of you it'll be good experience haha Pros: food Cons: service more

not for those who like polite service 2/6/2010

I will admit, we go often. the food is good. However, the service is HORRIBLE. I have eaten there about 40 times and not once has a waitperson ever come over to me and said 'how is everything or do you need anything?" They want you in and out. They get frustrated if you ask for extra duck sauce or more tea. They stand over you and basically throw the food when it why do we still go? the food is good, that simple. Yes, they are a little pricey too. But in the area, they are pretty much the most consistent quality. They know they are rude, but they know they get a way with it. So go for the food- not for the atmosphere or service and you will be content. If you need a smile or polite waiter to enjoy your meal - well folks, you are out of luck Pros: the food Cons: the waitstaff, the waitstaff, and the management! more

bomb dumplings 8/24/2009

I love the dumplings. This place also has great lunch specials. I would recommend for delivery. Pros: quick, affordable Cons: sometimes slow delivery more


This place has the best dumplings anywhere hands down. I recently was there and they had the soup dumplings that are so prevalent down in Chinatown. But sorry, I gotta say that CF is the winner. Sorry Joe's Shanghai. CF's dumplings are not as greasy and offers an explosion of clean flavored soup in their soup dumplings. When you press your lips together after the finish, there's no sticky after feel....the best! Pros: Great Food Cons: None more

poor service, bad food, expensive and with no hygiene standards. 7/21/2008

I just came back from China Fun and I would not recommend it to anyone. Firstly, as it is typical of take-away, the food is over seasoned and too salty, I suspect this is the result of using MSG: the Kung-Pao chicken was the worst I ever had in my life. Secondly the hygiene: while we were waiting for our food one of the waiters took off his shoes and put them on the desk near the chopsticks, how disgusting. I would have assumed that the manager would have shouted at him right away, but no!.. at one point they were looking at and touching the shoe at the same time, probably because it had a broken sole. Lastly, it is quite expensive for this kind of food and the horrible service. Overall I wish I had gone to Panda Express, which is much better, cleaner, and it costs a third of the price. Alas there are no Panda Express left in NYC. more

Jacked up prices! 7/9/2008

This place jacked up their prices after they redid the rest. Some dishes as much as 4 bucks. The portions aren't the best and are heavily in salt. I order take out from time to time but they treat you like viet cong sometimes and are very abrasive. Cons: You leave NOW more

not good 3/9/2008

Too busy.....wait long for delivery.Food is so-so.............not worth the long wait.would not recommend. more

Horrible, Horrible Food 12/5/2007

Honestly, the worst food I've had in my life. They are right around the corner from me and I have tried them on a few occasions over the span of many years. On each of those occasions I am reminded of the poor quality food they serve. Recently I had a delivery for dinner and have now officially sworn off China Fun for good. I don't care how cheap or convenient they are...nothing edible should taste that bad. more

Pretty good Chinese food outside of Chinatown, a great place for a casual lunch. more

Awesome! 7/12/2007

We visited China Fun on a recent trip to NY & loved it. Great value for familes. Service was prompt & efficient. Food was delicious. We have 3 kids & usually one is disappointed--but not this time--it was great! The waitress suggested that our kids share an order of fried rice--which we appreciated--its no fun to have a ton of left-overs when you are traveling. We loved this place so much we actually ate here twice in one week! Pros: Great food/prices more

Still the Place for Shrimp Dumplings 1/30/2007

This place still has the best crystal shrimp dumplings. I used to take my daughter to the 65th street location and split four orders between the two of us, washed down with soda and tea. The food is still the same--great, but the servers can brush up a little more on their english. more

Terribly rude service, took 90 min to deliver food 1/19/2007

Took over 90 min to deliver the food. The first time I call after 45 min to check on the food they yelled at me for giving them the wrong phone number. I gave them the number and address again. 45 min later the delivery man finally showed up and he had the wrong address written down! They mess up the phone number once, then the address the second time, and they have the nerve to yell at me about it! Completely unacceptable. Cons: TERRIBLE RUDE SERVICE more

That red bean bun is no joke 10/4/2006

I don't really like Chinese food, but their lo mein is the best I've had in the city so far, their steamed veggie dumplings are excellent, and I crave their red bean bun at least 4 times a day. I'm really excited to try the scallion pancakes tonight. I'll let you know how it goes. Pros: food is great Cons: don't have any more

The Best Chinese, Hands Down! 9/13/2006

My family and I have been coming to this staple on the upper eastside for the past 15 years and the food has always been consistently outstanding and the place absolutely immaculate. In short, we love this place no matter what anybody says!!!! I'm living proof that at 30 years young and having run my 5th marathon, the food at this place is good for yah! Pros: The Best Chinese Food, Tasty and Nutritious Cons: Not Enough China Funs in the City more

Great food, better eat in a hurry! 9/9/2006

Chew fast? You will. China Fun practically escorts you out of your seat before you've finished your plate. The food is GREAT, but it is very busy and you are constantly reminded that someone else needs the table. All in all, a good place if you want great Chinese food-and don't want to make conversation. You won't have time to!! Pros: Great food, prime location Cons: You are made to feel like you have to hurry up more

Live Maine Lobsters Rule! 9/6/2006

The lobsters at this place is the freshest I've had in a very, very long time. They keep it in a tank in the back of the dining room and scoop them out to order. The meat was succulent and buttery, not like the watery creatures off the LI Shore I've had in some other Chinese places on the UES. Pros: Deliciously Fresh Food Cons: Crowded more

  • In Short
    China Fun specializes in huge, meal-sized bowls of soup, like Cantonese wonton and roasted duck noodle. The menu also includes roast pork, duck and chicken, barbecued honey spare ribs, sushi, a variety of dumplings and dim sum treats like scallion pancakes and roast pork buns. Big portions for small prices attract locals to the casual space for lunch and dinner, and the counter does brisk business in takeout.
