Good food

This is where I go for crab in sauce. The restaurant is pretty small so it fills up very fast. The food is all good and the prices are below most other Chinatown restaurants.

I went there alone after reading the good reviews and I was desappointed. I took some time and the food wasn't very good. The meat was hard like plastic. But the taste was ok. They serve a lot however. The waiters weren't very friendly or nice at all....

This is not a place to get food in New York. With so many great choices do not eat here. There service was not good, our order was not correct. The food is heavy and of overall poor quality. The restaurant is not clean. We were just glad to eat and not have any stomach issues afterward. With so many... More

we have been here maybe 10 times in the past 5 years. We often meet friends where the husband knows the owner for years. We have never had an issue so we took the kids tonight. While the food was very good when the bill came it was all in Chinese and there was a charge for $1.00 When I... More

It was OK out of all the restaurants that we have gone this is the last one in our list. Food was so so I bet there has to be better choices in Chinatown

I have been coming here over 40 years. People at next table over heard me talking to owner and said they had been coming over 50 . That has to tell you something. Don't waste your money at the big name tourist traps. Cash only!

Have been coming here for 20 years for lunch once or twice a month. As there are courthouses nearby, this place is frequented by cops, DAs and lawyers. Always has been. Tourists also find their way here too. For good reason. Simply put, there is not a better place for chow mei fun or chow fun dishes. Period. I overlook... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
