Don't expect warm customer service here; but expect excellent authentic food! It's a ramshackle place off a side street; but the noodles were amazing. Everyone in there was Chinese as well. We loved it!

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
