I generally come with someone/others who like simpler Chinese food (think 1970's style). It seems we all have gotten quite good dishes. Is it 'spectacular'? Well, no. But it has been consistently very, very good. I also like several other places nearby, they've all been good but not as consistently good as N.G.B. So, I think of it as a better "bet".

my mom who's from Shanghai, looooves this place and says it's one of the only good, authentic Shanghai restaurants in NYC..I on the other hand, just think it's OK. I mean, compared to the other places on Bayard, this would be the best one but there's really nothing spectacular.

I have to agree, this restaurant is definitely just average. If you're expecting a nice atmosphere, don't even go there. The service is fine, nothing spectacular. The food is average, but at a decent value. The steamed buns/soup dumplings are ok. I've had worse, and have definitely had better. It's not as juicy/soupy as those buns should be in my opinion. I definitely don't recommend the crab & pork buns, as they only put the few shreds of crab on top for identification purpose. Just stick with the pork version and save yourself a couple of bucks!

The title sums it up. I can't even get excited enough about this place to do more than grunt a little when I think about it. It isn't bad. It isn't good. It's just there, taking up space. I don't really recommend going here, given how many really amazing places there are in Chinatown to grab a bite. You won't be sad if you go to Green Bo. But you won't be particularly excited, either. You will fill yourself up for very little money in a restaurant with no atmosphere and waitstaff who forget you exist. In other words, it's a dime a dozen for C-town. Why bother?

I have been a long time customer of new green bow- didn't even know they were on here...atmosphere? Not really- the place is as big as my bathroom, service? well, they get you your food and drinks and pretty quickly too I may add....Value? I don't know where else 2 people can order appetizers and dinner and take home leftovers for 20 bucks. Food? Absolutely amazing- I have eaten in many many MANY restaurants throughout the city that claim to be "Authentic"...new green bow hits the nail on the head. the food is amazing from the juicy buns to the scallion pancakes, to the pan fried noodles and vegetarian dishes. It is delicious, not meant to be spicy so that you cry, and very flavorful....I come here every few months to get my fix.....the place is a must visit...do be prepared to wait during lunch time...it gets crowded but...you can also order takeout and eat at home..yummy!

I had the dumpling and pan-fried noodles. Everything was DELICIOUS. The waitress was brisk but friendly. The atmosphere is nonexistent, but you're not there for ambiance. You're there for the scrumptious dumplings, and they come through.

filthy? fine. busy? fine. crowded? okay. these i expect in chinatown. bland food? never. I ordered Ma Po Bean Curd (which I was glad to see was pork-free). it was a terrible and tasteless mess. it almost made the bad Chinese beer taste good. not worth it. plenty of better places in chinatown and elsewhere.
