This place has terrible service and rude waiters. The appetizers are awful and have no flavor whatsoever. The main dishes were pretty good but nothing spectacular that you can't get anywhere else. This place has Americanized their Chinese food. If you want good, authentic food...More

If you love real Asian food and you are planning to have a special night in NYC, join the Congee Bowery and please don't miss the opportunity to try the delicious shrimp with walnut and broccoli. Unforgettable!

We had congee and dumplings at this restaurant, it was sorely disappointing. How bad could Chinese food be right? It can be bad unfortunately. The congee was just OK, we had the seafood congee. Congee itself was good, but it just seemed like they dumped...More

Congee village is a bit upscale from the usual Chinese restaurants. Has lots of "different" and unusual items like boiled goose intestines. Start with soup dumplings which were a total failure. I have had these many times, they should pop in your mouth releasing delicious...More
