I was in NYC on holiday staying near Time Square, and in the mornings I spotted a queue of people, lining up to go into this Bakery/Cafeteria styled restaurant that I tried the next day. I went to buy fresh cakes that were yummy (some like Hong Kong with some new NYC varieties) and basic noodles that were tasty and filling. It was very god value for money. The staff in there were great, polite and chatty. I went there every morning for my breakfast, and when I return to NYC for my next city break, I will look this place up. Great value, tasty and polite service!

I was hungry and ordered, food arrived. Got two plates and one as a minus zero and the other oddly enough was about 4 stars out of 5. Depends what you get... For no frills cheap food, this is it. But thats about it.

This place is part run-down bakery, part run-down cafeteria style served Chinese food, but everything is cheap, authentic without the grease, and served in large portions. For $5 you get white or fried rice with your choice of three dishes (meat, veg, fish, etc). They sort of rush you along and most of the cafeteria servers don't speak English, so find something that looks familiar and point to it, you won't be disappointed! Saw all sorts of chicken dishes with veggies and sauces, fried/steamed whole fish, ox tail, bok choy, pork buns. Pretty much anything you find on a regular take-out Chinese menu but there isn't the greasy taste or feel to the food. Recommend going a number of times and picking a different dish each time. There is available seating but it's sort of cramped. Better to take out and eat in the park or at your office. Definitely recommend this place for food quality and speed of ordering.
