I don't live in NYC any longer, but whenever I visit, I just have to eat at Sammy's. The food is fresh and delicious. No fresher noodles anywhere. The helpings are huge, so it's a terrific value. The space is a bit noisy, but that's to be expected since it is so popular. Two of my favorite dishes are the eggplant with garlic sauce, and, of course, chow fun noodles. Amazing. I'm kvelling now, just thinking of them. I just wish the wait staff was a little friendlier. A smile goes a long way.

I have dined here for the last three years and unlike most chinese restaurants that offer lunch specials you can actually identify the meat LOL that Sammy's give. Nice quiet place to dine with friends, co-workers or alone. Servers remember you and your special requests. clean simple dining and take out is prompt. Will always be my favorite in the city.

It has been my favorite Chinese delivery spot since I moved to NYC ion the mid-90's. Amazing General Tsao's Chicken.

Sammy's Chinese food is great and inexpensive! Whenever my family wants take-out, Sammy's is always the first place to come out of our mouths. Their orange chicken is great, and their peanutbutter noodles are the best in downtown!

Poor service- just to give a glance, the waitress took 25 minutes to take our order, gave us attitude when we asked for a clean plate, gave our food to another table that came in after us, and then we had to sit and wait for them to prepare another meal- bad attitudes, and when we asked for the food to be boxed up, the waiter that took it away stuck his thumbs in our food as he was carrying it.

Have been here several times with several different people. They and I always rave. Whenever I visit them they insist that I bring take-out from Sammy's. Their soups are superb, The spare ribs are cut in half to make them more finger-food friendly. But th highlight is the fire power. Start with the Dan Dan noodles, a fiery little bowl of extremely spicy noodles topped with chopped peanuts -- simply delicious!! Then, if you dare, go on to the Shredden Beef with Hot Peppers -- a vitual avalanche of heat. Sometimes there are hig chunks of raw garlic inside, which are kinda hard to take, but the superb beef field laced with green chile landmines is a thrill for the tastebuds. Have a Tsingdao beer at the ready! Not to mention, all portions at this place are huge. This place is always packed and hopping, but it's a big place and I've never to wait for a table. The kitchen and staff are somehat frenzied, but they put the food out and give you enough space to enjoy your meal. I don't live in the neighborhood anymore, but this is worth the trek for me.

The food was GREAT. The sesame chicken was not fried for a change, but the flavor was great. And the wonton soup is excellent too. This is Chinese food that doesn't make you feel yucky after you eat it...finally!
