If you want authentic, great tasting Chinese food at a reasonable price, Congee Village in Chinatown, New York City is the place to go. Here, you can bring your family and guests and enjoy their house chicken with soy sauce, the razor clams cooked with black bean sauce or their pan-fried flounder and can still afford to order their lychee...

We were at Congee Village for Chinese New Years 2014. We absolutely understand that this is a huge holiday and it's going to be crowed with some wait times. That is expected, what is not expected is to be packed onto a table that is crammed into other tables where you can not sit without hitting other customers. Literally shoved... More

The food is quite good. Large and diverse menu. Good location, a couple of blocks from the Lower East Side which is a nice walking place. Really enjoyed Sunday brunch there.

Recent reviews praise the food but not the service, so I was pleasantly surprised. Restaurant management must have gotten the message. Our meals last night were superb and the service was really good.

To be fair, the food was delicious. And the hostess was friendly - even offered to take a picture for me. The waiters, however, didn't look at us when they brought us things or when taking our order, never smiled, didn't fill water glasses til we asked, and spilled water without cleaning it up or apologizing.

We recently ate at Congee Village for the second time. The first time the food was excellent and the service good. This time the service was terrible, brusque and unfriendly and the food wasn't good either. I wouldn't go back. There are too many other Chinese restaurants in NYC to go back to want that's not consistent in food or... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel receptionist (in an hotel based in Chinatown, NY). I asked him for authentic Chinese cuisine based locally, at reasonable cost. Less than 1/2 mile away was the Congee Village. Loved the fact that a pot of green tea is delivered to the table immediately you are seated. Personally, I prefer to... More
