This Chinese tavern serves very well, very well indeed. The food is plentiful (each dose is enough for two adults that eats well) perfectly prepared, fast and cheap!

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.

My boyfriend and I vusted late on a Monday night and the place was packed. We ordered two main dishes and a duck roll side and couldnt believe how much food arrived. We could easily have just shared the noodle dish. The food was so good and amazing value. 3 dishes and drinks for $25! Worth a visit.

Got the wonton noodle soup and the noodles tasted overly alkaline but if you just add some red vinegar, it'll help take that taste away. The dumplings themselves were very good, very shrimpy. Also got the beef veg pan fried egg noodles. Beef slices very tender and it was a big portion. We decided to add a side of roast... More

...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

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.
