Great NY Noodletown
Posted by I was surprised on 05/05/2011
I agree with all the reviewers that mentioned the "salt-baked" (it's fried) seafood. I had the soft shell crab and shrimp; both excellent and best eaten right away. One thing I appreciated about the restaurant is that they offer small vegetable dishes as sides, which makes it possible to have an affordable, well-rounded meal. It's great if you have to dine alone or with just one more person. You can order two real dishes and a veg.

I have been eating at Noodletown many years...yes, is crowded and oftentimes hurried...but the food is superb, and at a great price...thankfully, the grouchy older woman at the counter seems to have retired

The first time I went to this restaurant it was amazing, I was in a huge group and we had great soups, chow fun and salt and pepper squid (a dish I have been looking for since Sun Lok Kee closed). Another time I brought a friend from out of state for his first chinatown experience and again it was great (the chinese broccoli with oyster sauce is a must try). However, I was hankering some chinatown after being outside of NYC for a while and went to GNYNT, and it took them about 20 minutes to give me chopsticks, my food came and I had to ask three different waiters, it was in the middle of a busy afternoon but still I felt invisible. It is a must for quick bites and it is quite cheap.

Love the food and the authentic no frills atmosphere.

With a million options for my foodie crew, and thousands of new venues opening every day, whenever there's a doubt, we always end up at Noodletown. It never disappoints. At the dinner rush, it's packed and cramped, but you can get seated quickly enough. The food is fresh and extremely well prepared. When it gets really packed, I order takeout, which is a good option. Get the salt and pepper jumbo shrimp. You won't regret it.

Great NY Noodletown has been my favorite Chinese restaurant for years. I recommend the roast pork, roast duck or baby pig. All of the salt-baked seafood items are delicious. The pan-fried noodles are a must have too. These are served withvegetables and your choice of meat or seafood. I recommend the salt baked fish and vegetable. They are open late (3-4 AM) which makes them conveneient for those late night hungers.

This is one of my favorite places in NYC. I recommend, as have others, the shrimp dumpling soup, the flowering chives, the ginger scallion lo mein (not your regular lo mein - very light and fresh), salt-baked anything, especially crab or calamari, and the roast duck on rice.
