Oriental Odyssey

Chosen as the best Chinese restaurant in New York by Zagat's 2006 guide, Oriental Garden is known for its no frills approach to food. The unremarkable decor and sometimes brusque service is more than compensated for by the cuisine. Crabs, lobsters and other sea food are kept in tanks up front only to be plucked out and cooked fresh for you. Dig into dishes, such as the succulent Salt and Pepper Prawns or the Diced Seafood Soup, and the highly recommended Razor Clams in Black Bean Sauce. If you want Chinese food that's fresh, wholesome and affordable and don't mind an unexciting ambience, then this is the perfect place to go to. It must be remembered though - dinner here is not for the squeamish, there are dozens of creatures staring at you from the fish tanks, while you eat your meal!
