69, the Dollar Bill restaurant, has been our go-to place for several years, and to be fair the taste and quantity were as good as ever, but after an attempted rip off last night we won't be going back. And now that I'm grumbling, I'll note the delicious honey chicken was mostly breading, not meat; the wonton soup had wontons... More

Been there once some time ago. Did not like it much. The food is not as good and the prices are too high. This place is made for tourists. Recommendation: Do not go there.

We went here with friends who had been here many years ago. I had honey crispy chicken and pork fried rice and my husband had squid with garlic sauce. The food was very good and the price was more than fair for the portions they gave us. The staff was attentive & friendly. There were locals eating there too which... More

When we are in NY we always come back to this place. This is my third time here. I asked a traffic cop where the best Chinese food was back in 2006 and he said 69 Bayard. He was right. Best beef chow fun anywhere I have ever been. Roast pork and bean sprouts are great. We'll keep coming back... More

just discovered this gem of a restaurant & the food is very affordable & tastes really good ! We tried the dish with rice,mushroom,chinese sausage & chicken steamed together which is always delicious & the salt & pepper chicken wings .. tender & tasty ! Dinner for two can easily be had for $20 or less .

The worst I have eaten in a very long time. I was prepared for the no frills decoration of dollar bills on the wall replacing wall paper or any other resemblance of a Chinese restaurant. However, except for the egg rolls the food was appalling. We ordered steamed dumplings which were soggy. You could pour the water off the plate.... More

Have ordered takeout, usually beef chow fun ($5.75), lo mein ($5.25 chicken) and Singapore mai fun ($6.75), very good (dry style), cheap and quick. Sauces (oyster) sufficient and decent quality, ingredients OK (curry), and quantity good sized. Beef is not top grade but fine. Singapore curry is dry and old style. Had lunch recently. Beef and tomato on rice ($4.75... More

First off I went here because of the reviews on trip advisor, usually it is never wrong. This time it was wrong big time. The decor of the restaurant was dollar bills plastered to the walls. Normally I would have walked out in a second, but trip advisor gave good reviews. The food was awful, they couldn't even get chicken... More

Went here after reading all the great reviews - had a very underwhelming experience. Besides the fact that it is a shabby restaurant the food is just about average. The egg rolls are deep fried and oily, the kung po chicken consisting mainly of peas and celery ! The chicken came in small bits and was undercooked.
