We tried the Chinese for dinner. We had previously had a home delivery so we were happy to dine in. Conveniently located on Seventh Avenue although it has a fifty seventh street address. The menu is extensive. The food is average to very good, but can be matched elsewhere. Decent service. Small restaurant. Lots of takeout and delivery.

If you are looking for gluten free Chinese or Sushi, this is your place. I go here regularly and never disappointed. The food is quality and unlimited gluten free options. It is a small place with good food. I've brought plenty of people not gluten free and they have also enjoyed this spot across from Carnegie Hall.

Yes this place may make GF food but it certainly wasn't great. We had a masaman chicken curry (suppose to be chicken but wasn't 100% sure it was very chewy and almost had the texture of fish) we also had sweet n sour chicken which wasn't just as bad. The service was worse than bad. Also looking around I'd have... More

I'm a fan of Lilli & Loo and knew from my experiences at the other location that the Chinese food is usually the better choice. But on a recent visit I but decided to take a small risk and order the General Tso Bento Box - spicy. The General Tso's chicken itself was quite good...though I would more call the... More

There are so many option to eat gluten free in this restaurant. I have tried the pork dumplings, fried rice, bbq boneless ribs, crispy sesame. all very food and the portions are huge! my husband tried the green tea ice cream and loved it. The prices are ok for NYC and because the portions are big.

It was great. Had the general tso's chicken bento and it was all excellent. Not too expensive either considering it was in NYC

A whole gf menu, and delicious food. We had the Mongolian Beef and crispy sweet and sour chicken - two things not usually done gluten free - and both dishes were very very well done. This was our first food stop in NYC and it set a high bar!

6 of us had dinner at Lili's. 3 choose chicken dishes- orange chicken, sesame chicken and one other but they all tasted the same. They did come with some fresh veggies not very hot and choice of brown or white rice, not fried rice. Vegetarian tofu broccoli was good. All portions were a good size and the chicken was white...

This is a great find for Gluten-free people like me who miss Chinese food. Ask for the gluten free menu if you need it. The General Tso's chicken is sinfully delicious! The Tom Yum fried rice is also great. I have encountered a waitress who undiplomatically reminded us to leave her a tip....it definitely ruined my mother's impression of this... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
