“Ah so so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review


The establishment is conveniently located near the University of Miami, parking is adequate, as is the food. Not terrible, but if one has ever dined in an Old Chinatown restaurant, say, in San Francisco or New York, the experience here is certainly not memorable.

“Good, but not spectacular.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Even a request for spicy food elicits only mildly spicy food. Perhaps management errs on the side of safety, but this is a student town, with a large indigenous Chinese constituency.

“Delicious Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is our go to chinese restaurant close to home. We have others that are closer but don't compare. New Chinatown is great for take out or dining in during lunch or dinner. The restaurant is very clean and has a very large dining room with full liquor & wine options. My only issue is that take out is pick up only, no delivery. However, it's worth the trip.

“Used to be better..manager doesn't seem to care”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have been going to New Chinatown for 14 years. We'd seen the manager bless out employees in full view before but we overlooked it even thought we were made to feel very uncomforatbe. This time my wife tried to order plain low main noodles. On the lunch menue they were priced at $8 with soup and mixed veggies. My son's stomach was upset so she just wanted "Plain" noodles. They charged her $9 just for the plain noodles. No soup...no veggies...no nothing. When she asked about it they wouldn't do anything. The tall manager just sat (in plain view) and watched. We were regulars, not anymore.
