People tend to check in during these times:
Congee better than congee village
The Japanese pan fried dumplings has nice crunchy exterior and juicy meat on the inside.
portions are really big & super cheap options
An order of congee alone is enough for a couple people.
Try the sticky rice with lobster. It's a unique twist on lobster dishes.
Their mo mo cha cha for dessert is a must have. (Coconut milk with taro, sweet potato and tapioca!)
Love the soup dumplings.
Not worth eating here anymore.
Get won ton soup w/o noodles 👍
Good, quick, cheap food so don't expect 5 star service. Down side is the cash only policy.
For vegetarians, try the fried tofu with curry sauce, any of the noodles, or the bean curd skin. And the Hong Kong tea is a great accompaniment
The $3.95 chicken Wonton Noodle Soup is a blast
Baked rice/spaghetti or the soup noodles are good. Been around for 10+ years.
I recommend to come here with friends, because the dishes are huge. And it's so cheap! Not a five star but I would totally come back for the chicken congee with fried dough.
This tops the lists of Most TERRIBLE food experiences in NYC to date! What an awful place full of inconsiderate workers and fugly food. For fucks sake, if its hot food serve it hot!
Decent, cheap, authentic...but the service sucks.
Yummy and cheap. So many options for everyone.
CAUTION: Review the check carefully. They intentionally mislabel a 15% gratuity as "Tax." People don't notice because it's usually a small difference, but you end up paying tip on top of the tip.
Don't get the iced milk tea. It's incredibly bland and watery.
The congee is way tasty.
love the eel over rice.
Snow pea leaf dumplings and congee with your favorite ingredients (dried scallop, bean curd, and sliced fish). Don't forget the fried dough for your congee.
Order the crystal shrimp wonton noodle soup w/o the noodles. They will give you a bowl of broth and wontons with delicate, smooth, and soft skin.
Had the hot pot special for $26 excluding tax&tip. Includes appetizer, drink, hot pot stuff, and dessert. Hot pot was typical but I left fully satiated mostly from the awesome pan fried dumplings!!!
Their wontons and dumplings just taste off to me- beware.
Ordered a beef lo mein. Confirmed that it wasn't the noodle soup. Got home to find out it was... Check your food before leaving! All 3 dishes were bland as well. I'm usually a fan but not this time.
Braised stew beef over rice is the bestest!
Possibly the most valuable Chinese restaurant in NY, acceptable price, tasty food. Beware: cash only
The pan-friend dumplings are a must!
I always get the wonton noodle soup. It's great.
As close to true Hong Kong style food you can get here in NYC
Large tables in the back for large groups. Pretty good food. They have another location a block away on Elizabeth street.
Cheap and fantastic
Great congee and baked rice, large portions for everything!
Not a fan of the dumplings..at all
Pan fried are really tasty!!!
Minced beef baked with cheese over rice is boss
Best cheap hole in the wall in Chinatown. XO spicy fried chow fun (extra spicy) is one of my personal faves.
The Baby Yu Choy with Garlic is one of my favorite, fill my green quota nicely
My cousin makes fun of me because I always come here for the Japanese style dumplings. Their congee portions are humongous so I would suggest sharing. Really cheap and really fast service.
I ordered the udon and it says you can make it hot/spicy for an extra .55 cents.. All they do is squeeze a whole bunch of hot sauce in the bottom of the bowl. I do not recommend.
Andy loves the teriyaki chicken even though this is not a Japanese restaurant..
Japanese fried dumplings are awesome.
Try delicious dirt cheap breakfast specials from 8 - 11 am daily!
Always new dishes on the menu!
The best are #s 7, 22, 137, 140, 141, 145 and 148
For an authentic taste of Chinese food (sweet & sour pork-NOT), try their new Wild Duck with Chestnuts clay pot. Not a lot of duck, but so flavorful!
Order the Pork, Shirmp, Parsley Wonton Noodle Soup, amazing and it will warm you up!
