It has changed a lot since I've been there last

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... read more

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

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

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!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
