My go-to hole in the wall for dumplings in NYC

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... read 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

Basically found this place by chance while walking around Chinatown. Just a hole in the wall, but man the food was authentic and excellent. Definitely would love to go back next time.

Overall, the food was very, very good! We had 5 people in our group. The service was ultra fast and pleasant. The meat dumplings were superb(forgot the real name). The crispy duck was juicy and excellent. The orange chicken, sesame chicken was flavorful. The beef and brocolli was excellent as well. The only dish that wasn't great was the won... More

This little eatery on Bayard St. is where many local Chinese eat. It's not trendy or fancy. The food is not always 4 stars, but it's not supposed to be. It's just good food at a decent price. There were many tasty dishes. I had moo shu pork with Mandarin pancakes and dim sum. I really enjoyed it. You may... 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!

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 vegetables (bok choi and spinach) were excellent and... More

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!

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.
