Me and my family who were on holiday in new york city visited this restaurant on Tuesday the 1st of December and I can't recommend it to anyone it was that bad. We're still waiting on part of our order. We got our main course before our starters which meant our main courses were freezing by the time we got... More

A group of friends and I walked from our hotel to Chinatown and were told to try this restaurant. We were not sorry we did. The food was very good and the prices very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to someone interested in good Chinese food.

After some hours wandering in Central Park, we came to Chinatown to eat and came across this place at 61 Mott Street. It seemed clean and neat, so we gave it a try. I could notice that one of the waiters barely spoke English (okay, I know it's Chinatown) but the other one who attended us was really nice to... More

At least twice a month I find myself in China Town and I am adventurous so I tried The Mandarin Court Restaurant. The restaurant is located on the very busy Mott Street and is spacious and has good service. The portions are generous. The restaurant is geared towards tourist and not for those with discriminating taste. We had the General... More

I particularly didn't enjoy my food at Mandarin Court. Some ingredients were very low quality, some obviously shop-bought and deep-fried and others very high in sickly flavourings. Not to mention it all came out a little too quickly for comfort. My girlfriend (the fussy one!), however, really enjoyed her dinner. I think that stemmed from the meat not being too... More

Sign outside said two lobsters for $20.00. When we were seated we tried to order the lobster special and were told that those lobsters were not available, but that we could order a pair of "larger" lobsters for $26.00. I hate bait and switch. The meal started with Hot and Sour soup that was nuked in a microwave. The Peking... More

When it comes to Chinese food, I'm really picky because I grew up in New York City, Chinatown and ate there for decades. I was at this restaurant for Chinese New Year Eve's dinner. They gave us a large Coke bottle that was expired. There was no ice and we had to request for it. The quail should be crispy... More

You should not come here for a gourmet meal, but my wife and I found it suited us perfectly for lunch. New to Chinatown, we wandered through the streets looking for a restaurant that had a lot of Chinese customers, so we chose the Mandarin Court (although we thought it was called the Golden Mandarin). The lunch menu was large... More

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.
