Yes, its one of those places that has hanging ducks in the window and generic looking hole in the wall chinese food exterior, but don't judge a book by its cover. This place is cheap and the food is of good quality. I ordered the duck and noodle soup for only $4 bucks! as my meal and was satisfied. They gave me enough duck to fill up the bowl and a heaping portion of noodles. I would def. recommend this place to anyone on a budget, or even if your just in the sea of eateries that is China town.

When my friends and I get hungry at 2am, we usually trek over to Chinatown for these great dishes. It's cheap, open late, and an unhealthy treat. The soups are amazing, but we always have to get an order of fried steak while we're there. The service is not very interactive, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, but rather a sign that these guys are doing the simple task of bringing you your food in what we consider to be a professional, "you guys are clearly here because you want giant quantities of salty meat and not a conversation" kind of way. Highly recommended, my favorite of Chinatown.

I've been going to this place for years. Very bustling and open until late like 4-5 AM, so it's a great late night spot too. Any of the meat over rice is tasty. The noodle soup with fish is delicious too. Make sure to ask for some of their legendary ginger scallion sauce.

If you are a medical professional, have a heart condition, or are on a restricted diet, you cannot ever eat here. Sodium levels are quite literally lethal. That having been said, it's tasty, plentiful, always fresh. I've always had good, friendly service here -- one just has to connect with the staff. Soups are particularly good, but inedible for anybody who for health reasons must avoid salt. The shredded chicken with snow pea shoots is particularly fine, and they are known for their salt-baked seafood, although I have never ordered it for health reasons. Other dishes can be ordered with minimized salt, but the soups, however tasty, cannot. Great value and convenient, and makes no pretenses toward gourmetness.

I know my chinese food (dad was a chef, fiancee's dad was head chef at a chinese restaurant) and NY NOODLETOWN's food is simply great, cheap, and delicious! They make simple humble dishes delicious and their more expensive dishes (seafood) are actually very good too.

Best soup in the whole world, don't get anything else, roast pork noodle soup is the perfect meal for a cold winters night.

This is the run of the mill cheap fast food Chinese restaurant that are a dime a dozen in Chinatown. I was very disappointed but one look at the crowd and I realized this was a cheap place for college students on a budget and tourist who might know better. The service was decent and the food came to the table fast but the food was not good. The seafood chow mein was completely over salted and the soup dumplings were average. The place was crowded and cheap, but for cheap there are definitely better places in Chinatown.
