I was just reading a brief article about Lang Lang, the Chinese pianist, who has an apartment in NYC. In it, he says, "For Chinese food, I go to Shun Lee because the food is authentic. You can ask for the dishes to be prepared Chinese style, and the kitchen will cook them with more ginger, garlic and soy.
I have not been to Shun Lee for a very long time so I’m wondering what the locals currently think. I did a quick search of reviews and they are all over the map. Some do say it is authentic, others say it is “totally Americanized”.
