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!

It sure ain't easy to pick one of the many resaurants in Chinatown. We ended up at Noodletown trusting our LP guide. And I really wanted to trya real noodle soup, which is not easily found in Chinese reastaurants in Italy. I had a very good impression when I entered and only saw Asian faces - that's at least a...

It is cheap. Great NY Noodletown has no atmosphere. The service is rudimentary at best. The parking is nonexistant. The food however is terriffic! Shrimp dumpling soup (no noodles please) is great. Roast pork with string beans and shrimp with vegetables and beef chow fon are all very good too. The food is 1972 Cantonese which is not haute cuisine... More

Was staying in Chinatown and happened into this restaurant. Quick service, had the vegetarian dish with noodles. My date had chicken with garlic sauce. Fantastic. FYI, cash only..

Had 7days in NYC in March, 2016. My wife is a veggie and we both like trying different places to eat. Read some good reviews about this place and thought we would give it a try. Not disappointed, the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Went there on a Saturday night based on Trip Advisor reviews. Took subway nice walk through Chinatown. Small restaurant but luckily got table right away. Service was not friendly but efficient. Teenage daughter had crispy soy noodles with vegetables. I had roasted duck. Duck served Chinese style with bone remaining in pieces of meat. Portions are large. Dinner was very... More

This place remains a top choice for Cantonese style comfort food, such as wonton noodles, roasted meats, and congee. It has been there forever and has not changed a bit, which is a good thing for comfort food. There is not much in terms of decor and the service is brutally efficient, but the food makes up for it. This... More

When we were in Chinatown we came across this little restaurant! This is a real treasure and for us a hidden gem! It's small inside but cosy and it was buzzing with customers, so that had to be a good sign. The food was traditional and so tasty, it was something magical! We were so lucky that we had found...

Living in NYC for 40 years...NY Noodletown is my 1st...and usually only...Chinese choice. Don't let the looks of it deceive you. Best ever roast duck & barbecue ribs only to mention the obvious. As my Daddy always said, 'never go into an empty restaurant!' That being said its packed and you may have to wait just a few minutes. Great... 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.
