High Ceilings!

Okay, Mr.K's has an outrageous interior space. I feel small in it, and the cushy booth-like seats don't help. The dishes were incredibly authentic, and not bland in the least bit. The tofu was spectacular, so spicy it burned my lips. I can't tell you how truly blissful it was to sink my teeth into Mr. K's Peking duck. Everything was good, though not entirely impressive. However, I definitely go back, and it fulfills any craving I have for schezuan!

An Asian Gem in Midtown

For those used to quick, budget-priced Chinese fare where you exit with little white containers, Mr. K's is a world apart. This is a restaurant where you go for the extraordinary ambience and professional, attentive (without being stuffy or overbearing) service. Most of us wouldn't flinch at entrees at a French restaurant starting at $20, but it's unusual for Asian fare. However, it's not the food you're paying for, especially since it's good but not great. This is a special place for a celebration, an important client, or a romantic tryst. The $45 prix fixe, four-course dinner is a treat, and includes three appetizers, soup, Peking duck, a choice of entree (from among two pages of choices), desert and tea or coffee. Regardless of your choice, expect to pay an average of $50 to $75 per person. And for the most part, it's worth it.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
