Are we talking about the best specific dish? Or overall?
Also, does ambiance count? Or just looking at taste?

I would say overall. Ambiance does not count. But feel free to throw out specific dishes

My go to at New Kosher Special is Sesame chicken special combo, white meat, and add broccoli. 4 meals delivered to EWR is $40.

Jade makes great dumplings and the Mala chicken is typically phenomenal.
Also good is the Sesame chicken, orange beef, fried wontons, and the hot+sour soup mixed with wonton soup.

Zero ambiance and like all CLE eateries, it can be inconsistent at times. They're on Uber and DD.

Kosher Family 18th Ave branch. Havent had a bad dish there. Wouldnt eat in the store...ever. Kind of like the Elizabeth branch. The COney Island branch isnt as good but you can at least step in there and not be grossed out.

New kosher special is great but the ambiance, if one can call it that, is probably what a physical manifestation of the Coronavirus would look like.

The Kosher Wok near Boston takes the cake wonton for the best Chinese, by a mile.

And service at NKS makes me never want to eat there again. In fact, I might not.

My last call:

Me: I heard rave reviews about the beef sticks, can you tell me what exactly they are?
NKS: Sir, they're sticks with beef on them, sir, sticks with beef. (Lest you think, "sir," was used as a measure of respect, allow me to clarify that it was the opposite.)
Me: OK, can I get one of thise?
NKS: <exasperated> What size, sir?
Me: Large. And also a beef with garlic sauce.
NKS: <exasperated> What rice, sir?

. . .

NKS: We do not take credit or debit.
Me: So, only cash or check then? (to confirm whether they take check)
NKS: Great, you're hearing works.

I was going to nominate it but then I remembered that that's basically the only Chinese place I ever got from frequently.
Wouldnt eat in the store...ever.
Lol I think I ate in the store once or twice in my life. The one benefit of eating in the store is that the dishes they serve if you stay is larger than to go. Or at least that's how I remember it.
