An accidental lunchtime stop because every other dim sum place we tried had a line across the bridge! What a find. Great soy noodles, a very good noodle soup, tasty Mei fun and some fabulous roast pig. Can't wait to go again to try the duck and suckling pig. It was a bit cramped, surly waiter etc but I expect...

My wife has to have soft shell crab, so when I saw the sign on the door that it was in season, I called her and we had an order of 2 large crabs, deep fried and made better than the previous Vietnamese restaurant on Mulberry St. we ate soft shell crab in. Kind of expensive at 2 for $20,... More

I admit, I had found the Brothers Green on youtube and marked this down as a place to grab lunch in Chinatown - was really excited about a duck/smoked pig over rice - was prepared for the line, the wait, the abrupt service - all in preparation for something wonderful. Sadly, it was not...duck slightly stale tasting (% meat 10/... More

We'd heard great things about Great NY Noodle Town and wanted to try it out while in NYC for our anniversary trip. It did NOT disappoint! Very yummy and quite filling delights! The service was mediocre, but the food far outweighed it! I'd go back!

Went on a local recommendation. Only visitor everyone else locals. Very small, you get squeezed in to share tables, it was a mixture of sitting in or getting food to take. Food fantastic varied and comes quickly to the table. Would love to keep coming back best dinning experience had in New York. Was not sure what to do for... More

10 of us rate there together last night and had terrific meals. From duck to squid to chicken, every member of our large group ate their fill and then some. Really worth the stop.

Alright, I am not an expert on Chinese Food. My adult son was on a trip with me to New York. He wanted an authentic Chinese restaurant in China Town. Checked the travel books and trip advisor and decided on this restaurant. Looks like a hole in the wall. We may have been the only tourist there. Lots of noodle... More

I have chosen Great N.Y. Noodletown based on the internet reviews. I always wanted to try the original Chinese cuisine, as it's not easy to find a real Chinese restaurant in Poland. The place hasn't disappointed me at all. The food was Great!

The most memorable softshell crab ever! So crunchy, yet juicy and succulent. On a bed of lettuce and chopped green chillies. The service was expected to be coarse, but the waiter was patient and even smiled at two foodies from Norway who enjoyed the delicacies from the kitchen. We also had the lobster with soft noodles. Also good, but the... More
