Last night I went to get take out at NY Chinese Restaurant on
Citrus Tower Blvd, in Clermont. Years ago it used to be good, but I haven't been there in many years. I placed my order and while I was waiting I went next door for a bottle of wine. When I got back I took a seat and waited for the food. It was at that point I got a good look at the place...UGH. The floor in the Front of house was FILTHY. You could tell by the 1 foot margin by the counter, where people could not walk very much. I would think they would have to re tile the whole place as I don't know if the floor will clean up it is so bad. The front door was so smeared, it looked like someone took a cold wet rag to wipe it, and smear the grease around....not to mention the rolled up dirty apron in the magazine rack right next to the front door. If that is what the front of the house looks like, what about the back of the house???!!! At that point, I should have cancelled my order, got my money back and left.... The shrimp egg rolls were very tiny compared to other places in town. The Lo Mein was tasteless...however, the reason I stayed was they have a dish called "What is it", it is a chicken dish with a peanut sauce. This used to be awesome years ago, that is why I stayed. Well, all I can say about it is "What Is It"?. Tasteless as well. I think the Heath Department has missed this place for years... I didn't die from the food, however, the thought went through my mind many times. It is really hard to mess up take out Chinese food...that is why there are so many take out places....However, I give this place 4 forks DOWN, and will not return.

I consider myself an indiscriminate lover of Chinese food. I'm not super picky, and love most Asian cuisine. After visiting Clermont's “NY Chinese Restaurant”, however, I am indiscriminate no more.
The ""food"" dispensed at this Citrus Tower Blvd. restaurant was perhaps the most disappointing I've ever had the displeasure of ingesting.
Do you like General Tso's Chicken? Imagine several scoops of melting wood putty globs coated liberally with a slimy film of gelatinous soy sauce.
Beef and Broccoli more your style? Hopefully you also crave the savory flavor of stagnant municipal tap water, which--judging by the smell and taste of the dish--was the chef's marinade of choice. A quarter cup of this swampy swill was served up inside the container, and--like a rancid aquifer--served to keep the meat so soggy that it hardly required chewing.
The Crab Rangoons were the least repulsive foodstuff in my order (which, of course, isn't saying much), though the namesake is deceiving: the cheap cream-cheese filling had zero smack of anything sea-borne at all.
The only serving I’d classify as palatable was the prepackaged fortune cookie whose ominous message of “A new adventure is on the way” was likely a reference to the gastrointestinal repercussions I’ll endure in approximately 24 hours.
All in all, if I were to rate this restaurant on a “Chinese Export-Scale Index” with 1 being ‘Child Labor Laws’ and 10 being ‘Jeremy Lin’, I’d give them a solid 3—placing them squarely between ‘Lead-Laced Toddler Toys’ and ‘Toxic Drywall’ (the latter of which may’ve actually been a staple ingredient).
Please don’t let the overstated nature of this review obscure the sincerity of my feelings…this place was truly horrible.
