Great NY Noodletown

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.

Only took out food, very busy place with no empty tables late at night, food was really good and great value for what you pay, lady at the takeout was crabby and didn't appear to like taking any orders, oh well who cares, i'm here for cheap and good food, don't let her attitude bother you! have a good meal

My friends and I have been going to this restuarant for years but just recently discovered its late night hours. This place is amazing. The food is delicious and comes out quickly. The peking duck, an obvious recomendation, is deliciously fresh, and you can't go wrong with the chicken and vegetables in wide noodles cantonese style. The only drawback is that it tends to get quite crowded. This place gets two forkfulls from me... delectable.

Not many restaurants in chinatown are open late. This is one good cheap place to have a nice late night dinner.

If you want a good chinese eating experience, recommend this place. Though you may have to share a table cause it's pretty crowded, the food comes out quick and is quite tasty. Recommend the duck and noodle soup. What a value!

Good food, very reasonable prices. Service is poor, but hey - it's good eats at a good price. For the price, you'll be back. Try their congee (rice soup) - sampan congee is one of my favorites. And try the authentic chow mein (pan fried fresh noodles.) I like the seafood chow mein.

Um, the food is superb and it is cheap. The salt baked entrees are excellent, as is the roast pork. The ginger and scallion lo mein is fab. You pretty much can't go wrong here. The food is all fresh and well-prepared and you can eat like a king (or queen!) for twenty bucks a person (including two or so beers). For the prima donnas who are looking for service and atmosphere, may I remind them that you don't go to Chinatown for service and beautiful surroundings. This is authentic food served by gruff waiters, and god bless them! If you wanted fancy, then you shouldn't have come here, do you dig that, dudes? Rather obvious, but then, people like that may not know good food when it hits them in the gullet, nosiree! Better for the rest of us, so we can get a table, if you know what I'm sayin. A hole in the wall experience is not gonna have white glove service, but some people have become such yuppies they don't even care about delicious anymore.
