...but careful...you have to know what to order....preferably from the specials menu. Duck with chives, anything salt-baked, especially the soft shell crabs in season. Totally delicious.

Chanced upon this place while looking for some food to eat in Chinatown. This is just along the main road so it's quite prominent. Popped in and it's quite a small place. Passable service. Don't expect great service. We ordered the roast duck & roast pork combo plate which was great! The duck was juicy and succulent with just the... More

A native New Yorker, by birth, I always return to the scene of the crime when I can. So, I wound up in "The Big Apple" this week and had a craving for the food of my youth. Yes, BoBo is gone and so is Temple Garden but Noodletown is still here. The place is the same, a real down... More

it says michellin on its door. the porridge was bland. maybe it was meant to be like that because ive tasted con gee with richer taste. the soup is light and not laden with msg. but the noodles need to be better.... the servers are friendly and well mannered. oh yeah the vegetables are fresh and well done!

While in NYC, I had to eat in Chinatown. This was an excellent choice. Service was quick and we shared a communal table with an Asian family. I had the duck rolls and wonton beef stew. It was delicious. My companions all enjoyed their food as well. I would highly recommend this place.

Fast service even a bit "rude". I did not find it dirty. Dishes were good and quickly served. It is a place to eat as if not it wouldn't be so crowded and visited by so many asian.

We went for dinner and had several of the dishes recommended by others, including the shrimp dumpling soup. It was good, relatively inexpensive and quick.

I had pretty well given up hope of finding good Cantonese food in Chinatown after being disappointed so often but stumbled on this place by chance. The atmosphere of the place exudes a shabbiness that screams well cooked food. No kidding. I love the wonton mee soup but everything looks great. BTW, its a real steal!

Had lunch there as part of a tour we were on. The food was terrific...the atmosphere was busy and electric. The service was crisp but very friendly. Overall an excellent experience.
