This is arguably the best, most delicious, down and dirty out of control Chinese food in Manhattan. Consistently good (the cold sesame noodles are to die), super fast delivery and Cheap, Sammy's makes me want to stay in this city forever, watch some Law and Order and order in!

I used to get the eggs rolls from here to go and they were excellent - large, loaded with pork and veggies, and delicious. On a recent visit, I placed a takeout order for an egg roll, along with a chicken egg roll and an order of roast pork lo mein. I would have been better off just flushing my money down the toilet. It was easily the poorest Chinese food I have ever had in Manhattan. The egg roll was burnt, the chicken egg roll was beyond dry, and worst of all, the lo mein was made with noodles that were not lo mein noodles. Big, thick, rope-like, absolutely disappointing noodles and barely any sauce. Only the thick pieces of pork were edible. I literally went to bed hungry that night. And yet, this place is always crowded, once again proving most people have no idea what good food is. Avoid this place and go to Empire Szechuan on Seventh Avenue - best Chinese in the Village.

I ordered take-out and it came fast. Never again. The woman ans. the phone was not helpful and seemed harried and unpleasant, didn't help as I questioned her, never ordered from there before - was impatient. I ordered shrimp with dried chili pepper. I said very little oil. The baby shrimp were fresh not frozen and in themselves good, there were loads of chili peppers -great, but not only was it drenched in chili oil (she should have warned me considering my little oil request and I wouldn't have gotten that) and some really foul tasting (Kim Chee?) smashed thick goop/bean like "stuff" under it all. No veggies, and a really nasty taste overall. I picked out shrimp and blotted them on paper towels, but it was awful. The beef on skewers were tender, but oily for pan fried (had to blot on paper tower) and not warm to boot. 1 apptetizer 1 dish and over nineteen dollars without tip for delivery guy. Not worth it at all. How do they get away with it?

I'm a regular, the service is fast and efficient, portions are large, like the way it should be. It can be crowded at pick hours and weekends!!

I lost my cellphone and the owner of this restaurant, William, somehow managed to find me and give it back to me. He must have gone to extraordinary lengths to track me down. Restored my faith in New Yorkers! Thank you so very much.

I've been ordering from Sammy's for 10 years. The food is good and sometimes even great. Even tho not always consistent, its far better than most. I did recently notice the baby shrimp are really BABY shrimp now.. they used to be double in size.
