I've been coming to this restaurant for over ten years now and they have the best seafood noodle soup ever! [Don't forget to add some viet. hot sauce] The price is great and the portion is just enough to fill you up without making you feel like you have to loosen a notch or two on that belt. If you're going to chinatown, you have to visit this restaurant! Oh yea, the dumpling noodle soup is great as well.

Get the dry noodles and you can really taste how oily and nice it is, just like how it is supposed to be in s.e.asia. Add chilli for extra shiokness. It's not like a fancy restaurant but in asia all the best food are in simple settings like this so all the more authenic the food feels. My friend loved it so much he ordered a second bowl right after! It's cheaper and better tasting than what you find in fancy restaurants definitely.

The food is pretty good on the cheap but the service is poor. Too noisy. I said number 32 and add vegetables (in Chinese). Then I thought he asked white or black rice. I was like what? I want white rice with it. Then he repeated again and I heard the same thing so I said "white rice add vegetables." Then he said it louder and I heard chicken or duck? Obviously, if the menu says number 32 is country duck rice then that's what it is. So I responded duck. And then he said in the most impolite tone ever, "So why'd you say white rice? What were you talking about?! Duck with rice is duck with rice!" And then I said again add vegetables because he probably couldn't get that. I didn't tip but I was eating with friends and they tipped their portions. I was going to complain but my friend likes eating there and expects to eat there in the future. It was only that one waiter but I definitely do not want to dine in there. My best bet is takeout because I will not tip waiters that do not do much. It's called gratuity for a reason. You're not going for the styrofoam cups, fluorescent lights, or poor service. You're going for good cheap food.

Just returned from a trip to Chinatown with my Chinese lady friend. Bo Ky is a must. The special seafood noodle soup is wonderful.

Comfort food plus!!!! Not a large menu, but what they do, they do very well. Wonderful beef stew served with egg noodles is first rate and it is less than $5. The country duck is a real bargain at less than $8 for a half duck. The spring rolls are nic, too. They make their own hot sauces and they are terrific. The service is quick and efficient. Worth a try!
