The soup dumplings and fried dumplings are Fantastic! but the manager and some of the waitresses need to take a valium. I am used to and expect rude service in Chinatown, It goes with the territory., But the shrill dragon lady that stands behind the register is over the top. She is so angry , hyper and shrill that she actually makes it an unpleasant place to dine. She is Constantly screaming at the waitresses and barking seating commands at the customers. We ate our delicious dumplings and left never to return.

As it relates to rating the quality of chicken and broccoli in this city. So I can say with certainty that this is the best you will find.

You're not paying for atmosphere here. Great food

OK, I'll give you the fact that the place is tiny as anything, and the waitstaff could smile more, but you can't beat it for the price. Actually, I'd gladly pay more to eat here. The chow fun is out of this world, and the veggies (particularly the spinach and the green beans) are the freshest around. I love the dumplings and have trecked from Brooklyn just to get a fix. Sharing a table with others isn't my favorite thing in the world but I'd be more than willing to share just to be able to eat here!

This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Chinatown. It's perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. I almost always get the vegetable dumplings and pan-fried vegetable noodles and they're always delicious! The restaurant is small and you might have to share a table if it's a busy time of day, so if that's off-putting, it might not be for you. If you're looking for great food at a cheap price (why are there two dollar signs? My dumplings + noodles is $11!), this is definitely the place for you.

If your looking to dine on delicate, flavouful Dim Sums go some place else. Firstly they have a very limited choice. The steamed pork dim sums were bland and insipid. The crab-pork was average at best. Yes they do make them fresh and the portions are ample, but the 'skins' are thick and pasty. The restaurant was clean, a tad small and cramped. The service was efficient. They do have a large menu for other chinese dishes which we did not try, so can't comment on those. Doubt if i will visit again.

I've tried some of the other popular and highly rated Chinese restaurants in Chinatown, but I always find myself disappointed I didn't stick with New Green Bo. I HAVE not tried any of the dumplings but the following are excellent: - Egg drop soup = heavenly. - scallion pancakes drenched in the dark sauce = delicious. - General Tso's with WHITE MEAT (extra sauce and broccoli) = healthiest and tastiest general tso's I've ever had. P.S. Leave room for the ice cream across the street. The pumpkin pie and walnut cookie flavors are great. Enjoy
