$8, you get a salad, drink and entree. We chose the noodles with meat sauce, chicken with curry sauce on the side and fried pork chop with curry sauce. The salad didn't have too much of the dressing. We asked for more and they quickly brought us some more. The curry sauce wasn't spicy, so the kids liked it. My... More

It serves fusion Italian-Hong Kong style food such as spaghetti in sea-urchin sauce, Hong Kong style minestrone soup, soufflé dessert, etc. The restaurant is family style with very clean and simplistic wall graphics. The food was acceptable – delicious, except for the tiramisu which was mostly cream - too heavy and creamy in fact, that we hardly tasted the moist... More

The food at Cutting Board was okay. It was fusion (Asian and Italian). They serve pasta, udon, ton katsu. Also, the menu seems to have lots of seafood. They did okay with the mussels and clams. The rest was just so so. We ordered the cream puff (not sure what they call it, see picture). The waiter told me the... More

I tried the uni pasta and omelette rice with my friends. The orange sauce for the pasta was delicious, but it was heavy. The omelette rice was tasty and the presentation was good. Waiters were friendly too!

Ordered a kimchee dish and had a nice lunch. Nice desserts too. The dessert menu was on the first page too, must mean something. ;)

I was in Chinatown Christmas night and only a few restaurants were open. I ventured into Cutting Board and really had to study the menu carefully because as a previous reviewer mentioned, the cuisine is fusion Italian and Asian. I ordered lobster bisque to start and found the flavor strong but the lobster pieces were dry. For my main I... More

Started out as an interesting Asian fusion-type restaurant. Still not bad, but has gotten somewhat complacent. Large portions (particularly of rice) with some interesting items on the menu such as the uni pasta. A nice change of pace in the heart of Chinatown.

Went there day before Thanksgiving. Food was really good. I know you don't usually go to Chinatown for spaghetti but it was one of the best tasting pastas ever! Calamari salad was great. Prices are SO reasonable. Service was so, so. No spectacular service, though. Just yummy food. Take the trip downtown and get ice cream next door or sweets... More

Nice little fusion restaurant in the midst of Chinatown. I ordered the omelette rice with beef curry. Not a bad dish even though I normally like a bit more kick in my curry. The presentation of the omelette rice was neat. Our group also had calamari, fries, popcorn chicken, spaghetti, mussels, and a couple of other pasta dishes that I... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
