So, our fav Chinatown eats closed some time back, we took a look at TA reviews and picked this spot. Not sure why people love it so much, I dont care about the old fashioned style or the old style waiters....the menu looked fine -...More

We took Trip Advisors advice on this one as it was on our way back to our hotel, we weren't disappointed. We ordered with some help from the lovely waiter and huge plates of food arrived. The food was authentic Chinese, definitely no MSG and...More

We've been going to this very ordinary looking, modest restaurant for over 15 years and it still is as satisfying as ever. Their chicken corn soup is fresh and tasty and actually makes you hungrier. Our two best dishes still remain Beef with Bok choy...More

It is your typical "hole in the wall", a very basic restaurant down a flight of stairs. As a student in the 1980s I used to be a regular here and recently came back to introduce a friend to it. The waiters are still all...More

I have been coming to this place since 1987. For me it is the DUCK CHOW FUN. Though I do not get to visit as often as I would like, I am drawn to crossing the Hudson River every so often to get my fix....More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
