Good option for Chinese food in Hoboken. not overly greasy, though my kids didn't like the breading on the sweet & sour chicken. I thought it was fine. Fried rice was good and my husband and son liked the chicken and broccoli.

Food was mediocre at best, don't understand why they are still in business. Would not recommend this place.

While visiting our college son at Stevens, we happened upon Precious and were drawn in by a Chinese/Japanese/Thai influenced menu. First off, a lot can be told by a restaurant's soups and appetizers, and the egg rolls, soups and steamed dumplings were fantastic. We also had cashew chicken, chicken lo mein. Chicken pad thai and seafood stir fry. All were... More

I have been eating chinese food in Hoboken for 10 years and I can say Precious is by far the best here. Their delivery is usually very quick and comparable to other Chinese deliveries in the area. It is the only Chinese restaurant I'd even consider ordering sushi from in Hoboken though usually I stick with Chinese. Our favorites are... More

I frequently travel to Hoboken for business and eat Precious almost every trip as I need something Asian to break up the monotony of fast food burgers and continental breakfasts. Precious is decent Chinese food, and priced at a good value for what you expect to pay in the NYC area. The food is pretty average for a Chinese restaurant.... More

This is our go-to Chinese delivery place in Hoboken. They will make anything you request, even if it isn't on their menu, and will have it delivered to your apartment within 10 minutes. Whenever we want a quick bite and don't feel like going out, this is the perfect option!

Was passing by the restaurant on Washington street and looking for something suitable with the kids and figured out trying this restaurant. It was a very good random choice, the food was served quickly as the kids were hungry. The quantities were very suitable and the quality was very highly satisfying. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for... More

the sushi's solid and their cooked dishes are all excellent. Add to that pleasant ambiance and friendly waiters and you have an affordable winner!

This is our 3rd or 4th visit to this restaurant and we've always enjoyed it. The place is not fancy but the food has always been good. The wontons in spicy sauce and scallion pancakes are great appetizers. There are lots of very creative veggie dishes as well as non fried dietary options. We will definitely be back.

I love this restaurant. Precious is my favorite all-time Chinese restaurant. I speak from not going there once or twice but more than a dozen times. I've had many different entrees and haven't found one I didn't like. There dumplings and won ton soup are just perfect to start your meal. Then whatever you order could land up being too... More
