Great place for sesame noodles

I have been here a couple of times since I work close to Mott Street. I love their Sesame Noodles. The sauce is nice and thick and filled with sesame seeds. The price is right at $4.25.

I can only think that the recent poor reviews were posted by rivals ! We are a family of 5 from England and 2 of us are not keen on Chinese (myself included) but when in Chinatown you know you have to try a Chinese - thank goodness we chose this one (our next encounter at the Mandarin Court was...

With all the trip advisor stickers and New York Times review plastered the shop front, yet a room full of tourists and no locals, I had my doubt but I thought I will give it a go. What a big mistake. We ordered a few very basic Shanghai food, juicy pork dumplings and sweet red bean pancakes, good lord they... More

Good food but resting on their laurels. They need to pick up their game again, it's been on a downward trend since late 2014.

Ordered the crispy duck which was BLAND and TASTELESS. Was watched by the waiters the whole time we ate which made it uncomfortable but being intimidated into handing over a BIGGER tip by the waiter was nothing short of a disgrace. Avoid.

We were right near Chinatown and decided to go hunting for a nice lunch. Knowing that Mott Street is the center of much of the action, we hunted around with smart phones in hand, looking up ratings. 456 Shanghai Cuisine is a very good place to enjoy the lunch specials. This was our first time here. The lunch special offers... More

We visited 456 unaware of any reviews. We thought it was great. Very fast and the staff was entertaining. It was very crowded!!! It was great to see the kitchen staff grinding fresh pork and making the dumplings fresh oh and the dumplings were wonderful.

Used to be our favorite place in chinatown. A visit last week changed our mind after noticing the new staff. Though the service is still good and fast. Gone are the efficient shanghai lady managing at the front desk. The wall became more cluttered. The pork iin fried dumpling is pink. The vegetarian duck is dry and blend. The beef... More

Had to visit a Chinese restaurant in China town and this looked as good as any. I'm not sure what I expected, everything was ok, infact, just like most Chinese restaurants I have tried. Quite busy, ok staff, of food, reaonably priced. I guess I expected a wow, but just got fed instead.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
