If you're looking for a place that makes great fried pork dumplings then you've found it here. Like everything in life, great fried dumplings come with a price and the price you have to pay is the long wait to be seated here. On an average crowded night, a table for two could be a 30 to 45 mins wait and the lines could extend out the door in a disorganized fashion. There's no rhyme or reason to the hostess waiting list because I've noticed that some customers do get preferential treatment if they know the proprietor. To make matters worse, you could be seated at a community table where it seats up to 8 people. But once you're seated, you'll find a variety of authentic shanghai dishes for your perusal and enjoyment. I usually start off with an order of fried dumplings (8 pieces) which are made fresh and fried to perfection. The chicken corn soup was also satisfying and enough for two. You can't go wrong with the noodles (Shanghai lo mein) which was delicious. Or, the Moo Shu Pork (with four pancakes) which resembles fajitas but made with pork, and chinese vegetables simmered to form flavorful dish. The decor inside wasn't fancy but ordinary for a chinese restaurant. But remember, you're in chinatown so you didn't venture here to stare at wall decorations. You're here for the great eats. My wife was so succinct when she said, "I'm hungry, let's go to New Green Bo."

New Green Bo is one of the few chinese restaurants that has phenomenal food/Shanghai region, with the cocky atitude which the service givesfor knowing that they are one of the best. Along with the atmosphere, which is comforting, you don't quite feel like you belong, so if you get a seat in the evening, feel very lucky for yourself and enjoy great food.

Fantastic food. Crowded Chinatown place. Cheap. I highly recommend the dumplings (pork and crab meat) and the Tai Chin Chicken. Although so far everything I've had has been great.
