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!

We took family inviting from out of town here. This restaurant is definition of chinatown. Don't ask waiters what they recommend bc they will look at you like you have two heads :-)... They use smaller than usually chairs and tables bc of such a small space....BUT the food is great. Everyone had 2 orders of noodles, we ordered 3... More

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.

This is an authentic Cantonese restaurant. The Shrimp dumpling soup is one of the best in the city. Highly recommend the soup, the salt baked soft shell crabs when they're in season and the chicken and Chinese sausage casserole, but all the food is very good. Service is prompt but not gracious.

This review is based on four visits to the New York City Chinatown's Great NY Noodletown - all for dinner. The experience is always a filling one. This is not the place to "dine" but to eat cheap Asian-style food. They conspicuously display an "A" rating in the entrance window. My rating is a "D" for a unsanitary and run-down... More

We visited this Chinatown restaurant for dinner in Feb 2014. It was upon the recommendation of a college-age Chinatown resident we encountered while walking around Chinatown. Given the rave reviews by Zagat and others as well as the number of framed glowing reviews on the front wall, we were optimistic. Yet we were wildly underwhelmed. The food was blah -... More
