MUST-GO dishes at pig heaven:
Fish or meat hotpot (recommend in extra spicy)
You have better places around for :
Mafa tofu. (Too sweet)
Excellent Chinese-American food (like, really good) at an affordable price point. This is not your typical, greasy take out. Produce is fresh, protein is cooked with an appropriate and not excessive amount of oil, flavors and sauces are very rich. Excellent customer service as well. We’ve enjoyed both their outdoor dining and delivery.
This is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. I live 2 hours away and drove to Manhattan just for this. The fish is so fresh, I feel like it just came out of the river. The beef was amazing, tender and juicy. Definitely recommend!
I’ve eaten in Chinese restaurants all over Chinatown, up and down the Upper West and Upper East Sides and around Midtown. After stopping for take out only now at Pig Heaven, I can jump on that band wagon to tell you that some of the best, if not the best, Chinese style BBQ ribs are at this UES restaurant. Moist, meaty, and slathered in sweet soy goodness. The dry sauteed string beans were a great vegetable to go with but I find they’re always best before being put into a take out carton.
Food was delicious
Especially a big fan of the chaosaobao, chicken chaufan, and the eggplant.
Service was excellent
Bathroom and Restaurant super clean
Our Go-To Chinese restaurant on the UES. very good restaurant for authentic Chinese cuisine on the UES if you don’t want to trek to Queens or Chinatown. everyone is super friendly. we have never had an issue with delivery as it gets to our apartment right away. favorite dishes include hot pot (pretty much any flavor), sauteed eggplant, and steamed chicken (if you want a less oily option).
