“Best Chinese Won Ton Noodle Soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you want to avoid the traffic and looking for a parking space in Chinatown go to Sammy's on 6th Ave between 10th St and 11th St. Not finding a parking space is but there are more street parking available in the Village. Sammy's make their own barbecue meats, roast pork, spare ribs, roast duck, etc. I believe that their roast pork pork won ton soup with egg noodles is the best in NY. Huge portion with vegatables and a nice broth. For a smaller portion you can get the Cantonese won soup. Great on cold winter days or to satisfy your munchie cravings. Their roast pork chow fun and dim sum are also pretty good. I think Sammy's is a tremendous value. Sammy's is always a big hit whenever I bring people there for the first time.

“Overrated but popular”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years a few times per year. It is definitely popular and while up to a few year ago the prices were a little below the competition (there is another similar restaurant almost across the 6th Ave). I used to like the way they make Chow Fun, different from many other places. But I do have to say that the quality of the food preparation has gone down from what it used to be and the prices have adjusted upwards, no longer competitive. The service is really plain - they want to know what you want to eat and plop the food on the table when it is ready. Do not get their free tea due to sanitary reasons. Get only a unopened can of soft drinks and do not use their plastic glasses for drinking.

“Delicious Noodle Soups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

One of the best noodles soup restaurants we have sampled. The duck soup is loaded with duck. The seafood vegetable noodle soup is also delicious. Both were served in large bowls, pipping hot. Excellent value for the money. Service can be patchy depending who you get.

“The only place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I've been going to this restaurant since the late 80's. I've lived in brooklyn and since moved to staten island. When we want Chinese we head into Manhattan. All of the noodles are made fresh here. The scallion cakes are an appetizer must as is the steamed edamame. Chow fun is the best and so is the lo mien. General tsos chicken is also a keeper. In addition, the spicey shredded beef is a good choice plus don't forget to order a nice cold Chinese brew! Remember, after eating there nothing else will compare. The price is always right and clean also. On 6th ave. off off 11th street.
Enjoy!
