Great hole in the wall for a bite. Dumplings were great, as was the chow fun. Definitly not a nice restaurant, but great experience if what your looking for is good food at a good price.

this is not the sort of place you go to for wow factor. i mean, as the other reviewers said, it's a veritable hole in the wall. what you go here is for the food. service, who needs that? for all i care, i could get up and serve my own darn dumplings. and that's why you go here: for the dumplings. the seafood ones are fantastic and served in huge steaming bowls of noodles and soup. also, i highly recommend the rice noodle seafood casserole which is served in a clay pot. this is where i take my friends who are in from out of town when they want authentic cantonese chinese food. the prices are low and the portions generous. be prepared to wait for a table, despite the surly and speedy service of the wait staff.

I am a NY native and went here with a couple of friends for dinner. The service was poor; the men were rude and unfriendly. When we paid they kept all of our money without giving back any change, and when we asked for it they argued with us for 15 minutes saying that they were not required to give back change. The food was not exquisite either. I have been to way better "hole in the wall" restaurants with much better service and better tasting food. I will definately not return to this place, and do not reccomend it either!

this place is literally what the other person said. a hole in the wall. its nothing really good, whatever they have, big wong across the street can make it better. the soups are pretty bland here. and their wonton arent even good. so much for the name wonton garden, which was what attracted me. wonton should be their special but they cant even master that. there are definitely other palces in chinatown much more worth your time and money.

Without a doubt this is my Favorite place for great Chinese food in NYC The minced beef with bean curd over rice is incredible. Nice and Gingery! You must emphasize "Minced"otherwise you get sliced beef , the flavors do not meld as well in the sliced version. Great Sui Mai Dumplings. Try the rice noodle in casserole. The roast pork or Duck are my favorites This is a no nonsense eating establishment. It is cheap and delicious, so don't expect atmosphere or Happy service. They are however, fast and efficient! I feel sorry for the waiters an cooks. This place is open 14 hours a day 7 days a week but any time I go the same crew is there I think these guys work 98 hours a week!!!

My mother and I took a trip to NY with the intent of trying every type of food possible. We went into Chinatown, and the cooks in the window caught our eyes. The joint is small, and very plain, and we were a bit intimidated by the cooks, but a friendly regular suggested some dishes from the menu. We ordered noodle dishes and a soup, which was the best we'd ever tasted. Completely made up for the bland environment. However, it was neat to have the kitchen in plain sight. I would definately go back. Cant beat the price, or the experience!
