I have added Oriental Garden as my new favorite Chinese restaurant in New York City.

The place is clean (including the bathrooms) and the food is good.
They offer both dim-sum or food from the menu.  Some dishes are not found in the menu but if you've attended a party using their "party menu",  you could describe it like playing "charades" and may luckily be able to order them a la carte that day.

One of those dishes look like this:
I still don't know what it's called. But they are tiny almost invisible fish coated in light batter and deep fried.  I try to avoid fried foods but I do like this one on occasion.
When you make a dinner dinner reservation that can seat an entire table, they will set the table pretty elegantly.

They have fish tanks at the entrance with live shrimp for them to cook ordered by the pound, or geoduck clams also weighed by pound prepared for you.
Above are the geoduck clams.
Below looks like eel in the tank:
