Authentic Good Chinese Food

Delicious chinese food. Really good wonton soups. Fast and inexpensive service. Not a fancy place, but great for a quick bite to eat. We have come here several times and will continue to come back for good Chinese food. Not americanized at all, which is great!

A small crowded room and a five minute wait mid-evening on a Saturday. Would be easily missed but was a little gem. The duck noodle broth was excellent, kung pow chicken less so but still enjoyable. The shrimp fried rice was flavourful and came in large quantity. The highlight was a fried lobster which was outstanding. Enjoyed some stir fried... More

We already had dinner that night but decided we needed a late night snack. The restaurant stays open pretty late so it's great for those that have the late night munchies. We ordered the won ton noodles and the roast duck and it came out pretty fast. Food was good and service was what I expected - nothing fancy. Considering... More

Unfortunately there aren't any really good Chinese restaurants in our home town, fortunately we visited NYC and Noodletown. We read about Great New York Noodletown in a travel guidebook and we're sure glad we followed this recommendation. The place is small, busy, and not "decorated". Roasted pigs and ducks hanging near the cash register. Super! The menu is extensive, the... More

Good chinese food, fresh and hot, quick service, lots of locals here, plentiful dishes (don't over order), brusque service, tight tables. Wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

Listed as one of the top ten restaurants in Chinatown, we approached with trepidation. Not to worry, great food and greater prices, including all taxes. Fast and efficient service. You don't go for the decor but for the food.

After reading some positive reviews we tried this place and we were very disappointed. We ordered beef noodle soup and what we got was beef fat and noodles. The soup was not very tasty. We will definitely not be returning to this establishment.

My friends and co-workers decided to check out this Chinatown restaurant based on TA reviews, and we were all very happy we did. The food here is very authentic, not like your “normal” Chinese restaurant. In fact, most of the menu is in Chinese (with English sub-titles and pictures) and we elected one of our co-workers who spoke Chinese to... More

Local, friendly and reasonably priced, but nothing special. The noodles were a little too "Top Ramen" and lacked flavor. Authentic with the seafood, but not enough flavor. Okay if you can't find anything else, but I wouldn't recommend.

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.
