Sadly, my final visit to New Mandarin Court

Have been going to this Chinese restaurant for over 25 years whenever we can make it back to NY to see family. On our last trip with the kids we were surprised to see the place was more than half empty at 12:30 for Feb Sat dim sum! That was a first for us since we've always had to wait... read more

Food was adequate but bland flavour. Crispy duck was NOT crispy. Rice was almost cold. Table very small for three. Plates a bit grimy. A small tip was left. Manager came and demanded 15%. If they want a service charge they should add it to the menu. I would avoid it,

I understand the extreme comments that are already posted. You feel like a foreigner in the restaurant and are also a bit treated like one. But if you accept that, you can enjoy it better. I went in for crispy duck. The first waiter said that it would be too much for me (half a duck @ $35), and proposed... More

We were looking for a good Chinese place to eat just a half Peking Duck. That seemed to be a problem for several restaurants in the street. We asked the Chinese people who were waiting 20 minutes to be seated why they were waiting for such a long time. 'you will find out inside' they replied. And we did! The... More

Went to china town with high expectations and this has to be some of the worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. My sister ordered crab noodles which took forever and had no flavour. When the waitress cleared our plates she commented on the full plate of noodles and when my sister explained she didn't eat them because they weren't... More

We stopped by for lunch for their advertised lunch special of 4 lunch dishes and 3 orders of dim sum for $26.99. Seemed like a good deal. Portions were small but tasty. Dim sum was sitting on one of those steamer carts, but were not bad. Servers pushed hard to order additional items, but we didn't want anymore. Restaurant is... More

If only we had paid heed to the words on the back of the toilet door "Worst food ever" - we would not have set foot in here. We are a family of 5 from England and 2 of us are not passionate about Chinese (we prefer Indian but don't find decent Indian restaurants in the US). This was horrific... More

We stopped here on the recommendation of our tour guide from Real New York tours. He was right. Great dim sum. Even though it was at the end of the lunch rush and the cart did not have all of the items they were quick to let us order whatever we wanted from the menu. Everything was tasty and very... More

If you want the true Dim Sum NYC locals experience, this is the place to be! The dimsum menu is great, but it is not going to be a restaurant that will slow its pace for tourists. However, for anyone really wanting a true fast-paced downtown NYC chinatown dim sum meal, come here! The cheap prices are great and very... 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.
