Lee Tang

Dirt-cheap Chinese food is not especially rare; less common is Chinese food that’s both dirt-cheap and reasonably good, and into this category falls Lee Tang. It’s not the best Chinese food around, but it is affordable on even the tightest student budget (q.v. the $4.99 “RPI Special” combo plates), and the staff are so gracious and well-meaning that one feels guilty finding fault. Lee Tang delivers well into the evening and generally the food comes quickly. Bless them, though, the staff’s English isn’t stellar, so try to be very clear when phoning in orders to ensure that you get what you’re expecting.

Comments on Lee Tang

I used to order from Lee Tang, but just couldn’t put up with the brown broccali, frozen peas and cubed frozen carrots any longer. For fresher food, try Sushi king, or Hao Wei.

Justin Engel, you can’t rhyme for sh*t and I doubt that you can sing. So why don’t you just come out and say it, do you like my brother’s food or don’t you? Spell it, Homey!

the sweet and sour chicken is essential to my very being! the delivery is fast and accurate…I always get the same amount of duck sauce each time…these guys are good. For $5.50 u get the works…can you tell I’m excited I order everyday, sometimes twice. If i cant find my secret egg roll I keep zip locked away for that late night snack…thanks LEE TANG

Lee Tang, Again I sang, Faded memories of honey covered chick wangs, Sesame Chow, Gung Lo Pow, Everyday shines, when the ribs are sublime, not to mention the time, quick delivery to entice, others restaurants? go ahead roll them dice, and end up with a cats eye, inside an egg roll all sorts of sliced. Diced, iced, will be your head after the drugs are needed to pump your stomach all red, leave it be and you shall see, Lee Tang is for more then just me.

Lee Tang, what up with they wang? They have food so good it made me sang, choco ban, pork fried rice for all of my klan, and the sweet and sour, chicken or pork in fried flowa. Tasty eats, sweet beats, try to competes and face defeats.

I love Lee Tang! I love it so much I always keep and egg roll in my hair for a quick snack when ever I want! and some times I even sleep with General Tso under my pillow!

I am a senior at RPI, and I order Lee Tang practically everyday. The General Tso’s Chicken is absolutely amazing, I would eat it for breakfast if i could… you’re the best!

I’d just like to note that while I was at RPI, of all delivery places, Lee Tang had the best track record of actually being able to find dorms. Most other places would get lost on at least one delivery. Never had a problem with Lee Tang, and they were even able to make an 11pm delivery to the Troy Building without getting *any* directions.

I lived in NYC for a while and I can say Troy has no real GOOD Chinese food. The Chinese food up there isn’t real Chinese food. As for which is decent, Lee Tang is the closest to NYC chinese I’ve found. Plum Blossom is good food, but it’s not Chinese.

Lee Tang has very t·tty Chinese food. You know what you are going to get, yeah man.

I can’t believe you guys don’t mention The Plum Blossom. Their food is amazing. The dinners might be a little pricey, but lunch is great. $5 gets you tea (good tea too), soup (wonton, egg drop, or hot & sour), fried rice, and an entree that you’ll probably have to take home (it’s that much food). That deal, along with the nicest looking interior in a restaurant (Chinese or otherwise) that I’ve ever seen makes it a must for lunch. I’m pretty sure it’s served until 3pm, but don’t quote me on that.

Hide the cats, Lee Tang might not be the greatest but it’s hard to beat when you’ve got a jonesin for some General Tso’s.
