do NOT go to Midtown Joe's Shanghai

went there sunday for my brother's b-day. prices there
are LUDICROUS! soup dumplings were good as always, and
prices not prohibitive, but everything else was
ridiculous. crispy fried yellow fish fingers with
dried seaweed were good, but at $26 a plate they were
hardly worth it. General Tso's chicken was $25 . . .
can you believe it -- $25! for General Tso's chicken!
And the worst part was that it SUCKED! You can get
good general tso's at every hole in the wall in the
city for $5. We didn't get anything else because it
was too damn expensive. They should have never left
chinatown, and neither should you. Go to the Chinatown
branch, or the one in queens, and wait the hour or so.
it's worth the wait for the excellent soup dumplings
and the unpretentious ambiance. it is definitely not
worth the money to get a reservation and eat in a fancy
room in midtown and pay for chinese food that's being
marked up like rare wine.
