We were there for a quick lunch. 2 adults with two kids. The restaurant is small and was crowded but the service was good. The food was great. Especially the dumplings.

We visited this place in the middle of the week with good expectations after having explored the Chinatown up and down. It was a cold afternoon and very nice to find a pot of tea ready on the table. That was the best part of the visit. We ordered some west lake bf soup and another dish, spring rolls etc.... More

Had an A rating and the menu looked good so we went in. We all got different entrees and the dumplings. Everyone loved theirs. Service was good considering it was so busy.

We enjoyed all our dishes, but the pork dumplings were particularly well flavored and delicious. We had lo mien noodles, beef and green onions, and a tofu dish. Hearty servings, quick service, and average atmosphere. Lots to see in Chinatown - plan to walk around after your meal to experience the area.

We stopped in here for dinner after shopping in Chinatown. Place was packed which is usually a good sign. We had the steamed pork dumpling which were delicious. Also had the spicy chicken and beef with garlic. Tea and two beers. Bill was only $43!!!

We strolled around Chinatown for half an hour looking for a place to eat and decided on this one. It was clean, had a decent menu, with some dim sum items too. We also saw quite a few people inside, tourists, families, and potentially more local folk, which is a plus. We did not order anything exotic, but what we... More

Our meal here was fantastic. We dined for dinner and the place was packed. The food was fresh and healthy. In fact I think it might even be the best Chinese I have ever eaten! Certainly the best in NY! The service was fast and friendly. I can't wait to return.

We come to 456 for their incredible soup dumplings, and even better, fried dumplings. Most everything is delicious here, and we highly recommend their wonton soup. Dumplings of goodness!

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.
