Little whole in the wall but the food is great. Can be a little tight in the sitting area and at times can be noisy but the taste of the food is well worth it. We never feel we have visit New York City unless we stop at La Caridad.

We headed to eat here because friends had been talking to us about the history of the Cuban-Chinese in the upper west side. Our dilemma was whether to select Cuban or Chinese from the menu. I stayed safe and chose what for me are Cantonese staples -- egg drop soup and egg foo yong -- though I selected the yellow... More

I haven't eaten here in years but had the opportunity yesterday afternoon to dine in and they did not disappoint. The oxtail was so tender, the pork chops were cooked to perfection, the sweet bananas were on point, the place is not fancy but the food more than makes up for it. The prices are fair and the food plentiful... More

La Caridad serves Cuban and Chinese food . The food here is awesome! Big menu with many interesting dishes. You get a lot for your money: huge portions for a low price. If you are ever in New York City, this is a great place to eat!

This seemed like a great idea . Something different. It was so bland in taste and service was awful.

First meal when we got to town. Spanish and Chinese food; interesting combination. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals. A lot of food and fair price.

Sure, the pork is great in everything here, but don't forget the soup. Nearly a meal by itself, and consistently great for thirty years.

We discovered this place by accident while walking towards our hotel at lunch time. The name doesn't sound Chinese but the food was authentic, fresh and very tasty. The staff and cooks are also Chinese. The service is swift (as is typical with restaurants serving this kind of food around the world). We liked the food so much that the... More

We were looking for some comfort food as it was a rainy day and this place didn't disappoint! Best Chinese-Cuban food in NY! We started with the wonton soup and the flavor was amazing--pork slices were huge! We then had the best pork spareribs---wow---the house special fried rice, fried sweet plantains and avocado salad. It was so, so good....and we... More

Best in the city. Avocado salad is amazing. Worth the trip. Rice and beans was great. Get fried yuca for appetizer. Price was reasonable.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
