We had a private function here during the night of Thanksgiving. With our private room in the lower level, we sat away from the noisy crowds. Once everyone arrived, the food that we preordered started coming out. The service was quick and polite. I liked the way they brought out clean plates for us as our plates quickly got greasy...

Went for lunch. Sometimes a little hard to communicate if there are questions. Food was prepared perfectly. The flavors were great and the portions are large. They have an extensive menu. If you go for lunch ask to see the lunch special menu.

We came here for a birthday party with a group of 20. We were seated in a private room downstairs and have a selection of just about everything on the menu. I tried things that I never would have ordered on my own, and every one of them were delicious. It was a wonderful experience, and I feel like I... More

I have eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The service is fine, but the food is special. You will see mostly Chinese folk eating here.

There are several Congee villages so check names carefully. On Allen St., on edge of Chinatown is the best. Try House special Crispy Chicken for roasted crispy skin, not deep fried! Service is quick. Lines can be very long during weekends. However you will be seated fairly and food comes put amazingly quickly so the wait disappears!

First night in NYC, we walked out to look for a Chinese restaurant and this place immediately looked like something special. In a small hall we were asked to wait about 20min. The atmosphere in the restaurant is like a large Chinese dining room. Small tables, small chairs, lot of locals eating with friends or family. Hot tea is brought... More

We had congee with shrimp and winter spinach: I have been thinking about both for over a month since eating them. I imagine the other items on the menu are good, but go there for the congee. If you have never had it: go there. If you already love congee: go there.

I like the place. Food taste good. It annouced in the radio - do not have to pay "tips". But when you are there no one tells you that, ending you pay higher price for the food and the trip also. The "tips" is included in the food price.

Waited almost an hour for our table even though we had a reservation and our full party arrived on time. The food was decent. What surprised me was the lack of attention by the staff to us from the hostess to the waiter. For example the waiter never came back to see if we wanted more Coca Cola (by the... More

Congee has a very large menu that includes pictures in case you are not sure what the food item is. The waiters are also very well acquainted with the foods and will help you select if you tell them the types of foods you like. The wait times for the food to come are usually short. This place can get... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
