    Beef hand-pulled noodles for $6! Ask for extra cilantro & dump a ton of chili oil in it. Sweet & spicy cucumber salad on the side. Oh, and stick your head into the kitchen to see the chefs at work!

    Some of the literal best Chinese food I've ever had. Skip the soup/broth. Get the pan-fried noodles and go for knife peeled not hand pulled. Option F, with shrimp and veg is absolutely outstanding.

    The house special fried noodles are the way to go. I always ask for an egg in mine to make ten extra tasty. Also: best hot chili oil anywhere. It's my favorite place in all of Chinatown. A must.

    This place is amazing! A little hole in the wall in the Doyers St "alley". You can see the chef making the noodles from a lump of dough. This place was a features on diners, drive ins and dives!

    My bf and I tried this place the other day - He had beef noodles, I had veggie pan fried noodles - both were cheap, delicious and even better after liberal applications of siracha and fresh cilantro!

    For a decadent noodle dish, this Chinatown spot serves up a spectacular plate of pan-fried noodles. Proteins run the gamut from vegetable to shrimp to roast duck to lamb. Read more

    The hand pulled noodles here are fantastic. I haven't had a bad dish so far. Watch out for the duck though, it's bone-in, so kind of tough to eat

    All out-of-towners visiting me get a trip here, with an order of Vegetable Hand-Pulled Noodles (comes w/a steamy side of umami Tofu!) and some steamed dumplings to start, one of my fav meals in NYC

    AMAZING!! Freshly made noodles really make a difference! In a Chinatown Alley, you can't get more authentic than this. Plus, 6 bucks for a mountain of food? SO CHEAP. Beef fried noodles FTW!

    The noodles are firm and springy, the flavorful broths enhanced by the fresh cilantro and chile oil set on the table. Even better might be the brothless knife-peeled noodles, stir-fried with cabbage.
  • Kevin L.
    Kevin LiAugust 10, 2012
    HOLY SHIT. This place is LEGIT. The noodles were so chewy and there are not 2, or 3 but 5 variations of noodles to choose from. Dumplings were the best I've ever had. So juicy and so flavorful. Godam.
  • Mish and Rob

    A tiny little spot that's always busy, and rightly so: the soup noodles are incredible, and everything's good value. Get the roast duck noodle soup and steamed pork & veg dumplings.
  • Caroline D.
    Delicious, authentic, hand-pulled noodles that show you how hole-in-the-wall places are truly the best. Beef noodle soup or any of their pan-fried noodles are great!
  • Ellie D.
    Ellie DNovember 12, 2011
    I've tried the knife-pulled and the standard hand pulled and hand pulled wins. Get the veggie and tofu noodles for a streaming sweet and salty tofu plate. And DON'T forget the steamed dumplings!!!

    Despite the fact that Guy Fieri has highlighted this place, it really is awesome. Giant plates of hand pulled noodles with spicy chili oil for $6-8 and $3.50 Tsingtao.

    Dave DawsonSeptember 12, 2013
    Best noodles in town. You can watch them make the noodles right there in the shop. Don't be discouraged by the exterior (or the interior) of this shop. It's delicious.
  • Luke K.
    Luke KingmaMay 28, 2013
    SO MANY different hand-pulled noodles! Order them pan-fried and extra wide with beef, then blanket it with hot chili oil. So chewy a wookie would eat it (yep).
  • Ana F.
    Ana FernandezDecember 14, 2014
    Everything is good in here; try to order one dish only as portions are just enough for 2. The shrimp noodle soup goes best with vegetable broth.

  • Marie-France H.

    If you've already tried the standard thin noodle and the hand-pulled ones, try the FAT hand-pulled noodle, another level of deliciousness. Strongly recommend the mixed fish ball with fat noodle soup.

    My friend and I had the beef noodle soup and roasted duck noodle soup. Tho the noodles are freshly pulled, the texture lacked consistency. some noodles were over cooked. Try nam Zhou noodles instead
  • Roza S.
    Roza SabeOctober 25, 2010
    Great food. Tiny place but worth the wait Had the seafood soup bowl with pulled noodles. The cilantro and the vinegar add just the right touch to the meal and not a bad price for the meal either.

    An unbelievable deal - definitely try the hand pulled noodles in a delicious, rich broth (served at a perfect al dente), the pan-fried knife-pulled noodles and the steamed dumplings.
  • Lyndsey M.

    Love the tofu noodle soup. Be sure to ask for the vegetable broth if you want it vegetarian, though, as they usually default to their beef broth.
  • Clarence M.

    You definitely do not come here for ambiance. You do however come here for the freshly homemade noodles that is being made as you wait for your meal. The noodles have just enough of a chew to it.

    Do not let the absence of a creative or punny name stop you from entering this place. While other, more hip places are limited in terms of seating, this place seems to always have a spot for you.

    I've been going this places over 7yrs now. A huge fan of this place. Stir fried noodle over noodle soup. Steamed dumpling over fried dumpling. But dumpling shell gotten thicker than before

    Yummy noodle soup for $5 -- don't forget to request a bowl of extra cilantro! Then, peek into the kitchen to watch the noodle man do what he does best (you'll hear the telltale thumping of the dough)

    The pork dumplings noodle soup with hand pulled noodles is the Hall and Oates of hand pulled noodles in NYC. And by that I mean it's incredible

    Yes the knife cut noodle is better than the hand pulled, but the real question is, in a post ramen world why would anyone want this Chinese noodle soup ?
  • Jane D.

    I like the reg hand pulled beef noodles better than the knife pulled beef noodles. Knife was too chunky n doughy for my taste. Dumplings good. still think super taste is better dumplings n soup broth.

    Way down in Chinatown, but probably our favorite spot for lunch. Youcan get the vegetarian option with tofu if you ask nicely, or just gofor the meatballs.

    Food/value is fine, not spectacular. But it's a rare Chinese place that, instead of exhaustively listing all meat/carb/styles separately, lets you customize. Who wants to look through 300 menu items?

    The noodles are great, the duck is pretty bad. The place is very shabby and the decor/lighting leaves a bad taste. Xi'an FF is superior.
