Upper West Side (or at least non Chinatown) Chinese

UWShound | Jun 3, 2007 11:00 AM

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.
