Upper West Side (or at least non Chinatown) Chinese

We live on the Upper West Side and are frustrated by the lack of good Chinese food in Manhattan compared with the West Coast (or I suppose Flushing), especially outside of Chinatown.

To give you a sense of what we're looking for, here are the places we like in Chinatown:

Excellent Pork Chop House
Great NY Noodle Town
Joe's Shanghai (the detractors are wrong on this one if you know what to order)

Outside of Chinatown, and applying a lower standard, I think the following are decent:
Henry's Evergreen
Shanghai Pavillion
Ivy's Cafe

If you have any other suggestions (preferably on the UWS but really anywhere uptown/midtown) I would love to hear them. I am particularly interested in places that really scratch that very basic noodle itch.
