Solid, if unspectacular

Yes the service was... unhurried, but the food was overall quite good and reasonably priced. Excellent hot and sour soup (yes its possible to mess this up... they didn't).

It seemed like a good idea to make a reservation for a birthday dinner since we were a party of 12. Except that the word "reservation" doesn't mean anything at Congee Village, since we were told at 8:30 p.m., the time of our reservation, that "there were two parties ahead of us." Hmph. We were finally seated a half hour... More

Not far away from the border of Chinatown and almost at the end of the hip Lower east side area this Chinese/American restaurant is predictable but worth a visit. The ambience is the one you expect from such a restaurant in New York. Although quite spacious it's crowded, noisy and full of Chinese; this should be good hint. The menu... More

Food is always reliable if the service is a bit lacking. Great Choice of entrees and interesting vegetable dishes. You can make a whole meal out of a bowl of congee.

I took my family to this restaurant on a Saturday, just after the lunch crowd has quieted down. The restaurant was deceptively larger than it looks from the outside. There are two seating areas (ground level and upstairs). The upstairs tables were spaced decently apart, unlike the main part of Chinatown where you are packed in. Decor at this location... More

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

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
