While many of the restaurants in NYC's Chinatown can seem like tourist traps, Nice Green Bo stands out with tasty food and great service. Plates of fried rice range from $5-$7, and are more than enough for a meal. Would definitely recommend.

I have a big problem with NYC Chinatown. Most of the places are tourist traps or just poor and not worth a visit. This one is poor. It is edible but tasteless, uncooked and poor service. They serve free green tea and free wifi is available.

Had a fast lunch, tough lo mein noodles were thicker than usual, they were ok. We also had some steamed pork dumplings, raw, uncooked. I give them an extra encouraging star because as we tasted only two dishes.

Always a good pick in Chinatown. Yet another name change, but I think that as more economics than food issues. Noodles and rice cake dishes were great and a good value. Soup dumplings weren't as good as I remember, maybe just an off day? Worth a try across from the ice cream factory.

Friendly attentive staff, very tasty soup dumplings, entrees very good. Enjoyed the sesame chicken, mixed meat lo mein, and dumplings. Reasonably priced, but cash only.

The restaurant continues to change names, but with the most recent change to "Deluxe" Green Bo the food has really become close to inedible. The soup dumplings ($4.95) were a glob of thick wrapper with a grainy, tasteless pork ball surrounded by flavorless broth. The cold sesame noodle ($4.95) tasted nothing of tahini -- only peanut butter -- and the... More

wow wonderful fresh food cooked to order! Very fast food with a wonderful selection. Tight seating arrangements and if it is just 2 of you expect to be seated on tables with other people. It just adds to the character and experience in this place! We got friendly with the locals at our table and they recommended some wonderful dishes.... More

The food here is no doubt delicious. The restaurant was filled with Asians. They always say to eat where the locals eat! They only take cash, so make sure to have cash. The biggest change since my last visit was that they did not include steamed rice with any entree. If you wanted rice, you must order an entree of... More

Don't be put off by the look of the outside. If you want posh decor and fancy service this isn't for you. The food is fabulous and lots of it at a brilliant price. The beef in black bean sauce is a must as is the chicken and sweet corn soup. My advice if there are more of you get... More

I have always hated dumplings/pot stickers. Seriously–hated! Until I went to Nice Green Bo, which was recommended to me by a native NYer as a great hole in the wall place for Chinese. He knew I was having a bunch of out of town guests and would be paying for a group of 12. I've never been a big fan... 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.
