The old restaurant was an authentic Chinese restaurant serving at the intersection of Pork dishes and Taiwanese Cuisine. My wife who is Chinese loved it there, especially the "Pig's ears" and soy milk alternatives. The new swisher restaurant has lost that identity and serves relatively standard NY Chinese food. I was particularly perplexed why they skipped the original ethnicity of... More

The best spareribs on the planet! Big and thick and wonderful. They are so tasty you can't wait for the next bite. The restaurant is a little pricey but worth every penny. We also had a great shrimp dish in a tomato sauce that was fabulous.The shrimp were huge. Everything is a la carte and rice is extra. We can't... More

From the dumplings to the ribs it was very good but our favorite never saw a pig. It was a classic Peking Duck. Served ready wrapped and stuffed with duck with drumsticks on the side, we were delighted and another pig lived to see another day. The rest of our party also enjoyed a fried pork with orange sauce but... More

I had the famous ribs and a pork-meat dish last night. It was lovely. The service was great and fast (almost no waiting at all). The bartender is super sweet. The wine choices is good. The staff there are all very helpful. Overall, a lovely place

Ate here with a business group last week, Nancy and the Staff were great, as were some of the other patrons who helped us decide which items to choose for our meal, it was a great choice for something out of the ordinary and also not priced out of line.

My husband, sister-in-law, and I ate at Pig Heaven at 1420 Third Ave. In NYC on a Saturday night. There was a party going on so Nancy, the owner, let us sit at a large table even though we just walked in without a reservation, but that way we didn't have to wait. The ribs are "out of this world"... More

Hey pretty restaurant with a very attentive and helpful staff. Cleanliness was acceptable. Unfortunately, I was not impressed with the food. The ribs which are highly touted elsewhere were very dry and I couldn't decide if they were overcooked or just poorly marinated. Prices for the quality were much too high for my budget.

I used to go to the old location often. My favorites were the vegetable Moo Shu and the ribs. This was my second visit at this location and my last. The Moo Shu although fresh lacked any flavor at all. In the past it had incredible flavor.The ribs were dry, greasy and also flavorless. The prices were very high even... More
