We were up in that area, and gave it a try.

The baked fish was A plus. Everything else was very good. Very inexpensive, clean, and very good. If you are out in that area (about 25 miles nw of Lancaster and about 35 miles west of Reading) it is worth a stop. It is maybe 4 miles east of HERSHEY PARK. Great place to take the family if you are... read more

It is a buffet - but options were not fresh and most things were deep fried. Guess I should have known better. It was a meal - but nothing to write home about.

My family has been a regular patron of New Chinatowen for many years. Although it is small and very low key, the buffet has many very tasty items. The regular menu is always available and everything is prepared quite well. My wife is from Macau and is very picky about her Chinese food. I have also traveled extensively in asia... More

My wife and I went there last Saturday night for supper before the Bears hockey game. We both agreed that it was much better than most Chinese buffets. The food was excellent and actually hot. The kitchen was continually refilling the food items which kept the food hot and fresh. Everything we tried was very good. The price for an... More

Always fresh, a great lunch buffet, and a great lunch special variety. We love the takeout from here, from the sesame chicken to the shrimp lo mein - the rice is always cooked to perfection! Very reasonable prices as well.

New Chinatown is tucked in the middle of the Palmyra Shopping Center. We've been eating there for years. The owners are friendly, and the food is tasty and plentiful. When my son was a young boy and we were in the area, he would always ask if we could stop just to get a cup of their delicious egg-drop soup.... More

I love anything that I order from here. Moo Shu Pork with rice pancakes, General Tso Chicken, Ribs, Shrimp with Lobster Sauce. My wife goes for the healthy steamed beggies with Chicken or Shrimp. We usually have the takeout, if you call ahead the food will be ready when you get there.
