Nice veggies and sesame chicken but didn't blow us over

We went to this restaurant on a stroll through Chinatown and because they had lots of snippets in the window praising their food (even thought they also have a grade B sanitary rating on that window). The much praised dumplings were nice but a bit doughy, the sesame chicken was delicious, the... read more

Don't let the newspapers pasted to the front windows fool you. Come on in and have some of the best food in Chinatown. Small, typical dining room, but outstanding dumplings, scallion pancakes that we get EVERY time we are in NYC. Love this place!

If you think Canal Street is representative of China town, you're wrong. If you think a chain Chinese restaurant with stone horses out front is representative of Chinese food, you're wrong. To really get an idea of what China town really is, drop one block South of Canal to Bayard Street. If you want an idea of what traditional Chinese... More

Found this resturant a couple years ago. Great food then and great food today. Stopped in for lunch with a friend and she loved it too. It's on Bayard street in China town, a little off the beaten path, locals fill it up during the lunch hour, that to me says alot.

We craved comfort food one evening and found this restaurant through Google Maps. We ordered scallion pancakes, sui ma dumplings with sticky rice and ham, bowl of rice noodles and spicy pork stir fry over rice. Way too much food for 2 people! Good portions, tasty and cheap!

We loved this place!!! In only 10 days in New York we had lunch here twice!!! The fried pork dumplings, the boiled pork and leek dumplings and the steamed vegetable dumplings were great! Unfortunately, after reading such good reviews about the fried scalion pancakes, they were way too greasy. After seeing the spicy stewed beef soup with rice noodles at... More

I've chosen to rate this place as 3, average according to TripAdvisor, but really I would rate it 2.5/5. You get a lot to eat but it's really nothing to rave about. Two of the three dumpling dishes we ordered were oversized (the steamed vegetable, and the fried pork). Is this an American thing? I've eaten dumplings in China, and... More

the food is amazing. Everything we got was superb and I'm still dreaming of the scallion pancakes and tiny buns (dim sum). We had come from the 9/11 museum and had hoped to walk around Chinatown shopping but it was cold & pouring rain outside. We ducked in here on recommendation of others and it was the best part of...

We have frequent visitors of Chinese restaurants in Chinatown for years. We came across this restaurant about 5 years ago and have made this a family tradition for Chinese food. Great appetizers like shrimp toast, hot and sour soup are fabulous. We ordered the hot buns which are fabulous. Then the Szechuan beef, double sautéed pork, Lo mein, Singapore noodles.... More

We went here mostly because it was right across the street from the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory , which was in our list of places to go. It is very non descript ( which is fairly typical for Chinatown ). We were seated quickly as it was not busy at all . Service was fine -- not overly friendly or... More

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.
