We stopped in on the first night of our stay and were pleasantly surprised. We were no sooner in our seats than a nice hot pot of tea arrived on the table. The menus were comprehensive and the prices very reasonable. The waiter, Tomi took our drink order and was so efficient and thorough. He brought a wonderful bowl of... More

We were looking for a restaurant after a full morning visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and just happened to find this gem. The food and service were quite nice. I loved the "chips and salsa" served while we awaited our meal (wonton chips with sweet and sour sauce and (sort of) hot mustard). Everything we had was... More

My wife and I were wandering in lower Manhattan looking for a place to eat lunch and spotted the China Chalet on the second floor. We were surprised at what greeted us: white tablecloths, a fresh rose at every table, and a generally classy environment. We had a variety of dim sum, and the most delicious barbecued spare ribs we... More

We had a tasty mid-afternoon meal as we walked from Wall Street and battery park to the 911 memorial. It was quiet and the service was attentive. Recommend the duck & lettuce wraps. Decor is dated but rest rooms clean.

My mother and I were looking for a place to have a quick bite after sight-seeing and stumbled on China Chalet. It didn't look like much from the outside but inside was an old school Chinese restaurant with servers dressed up in bow ties and delicious beef chow fun (beef and rice noodles). Didn't try anything else on the menu... More

I love Chinese food and have eaten a lot of it in a lot of cities. I ordered one of the noodle soups with dumplings at this place and I swear the broth was just hot water. No salt, no flavor, nothing remotely "Chinese food" about this. Zero flavor. Hot water, noodles, half decent shrimp dumplings and broccoli that smelled... More

China Chalet is located on the second floor in downtown Manhattan on Broadway near "the bull" statue. It was honestly the best Sesame Chicken we had ever had. Lots of "real" chicken that weren't overly fried. Staff was friendly and the air conditioning felt great on a hot NYC day.

My son wanted chinese food so as we are walking toward 9/11 memorial we find this place. At first we were reluctant to eat here because walking up the stairs we noticed the very very dirty and old carpeting. I wonder is this how they also keep their kitchen? But past that the food is delicious!!!!! We had the pepper... More

This restaurant served excellent Chinese food. The prices were very high compared to what I am used to at home, but it is New York.
