    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.

    I've been here 5 times & have tried 8 dishes. LOVED: 1) Japanese Pan Fried Dumplings 2) House Special Squab (Quail). FAILED: Pan Fried Noodles with Yellow Scallion. See Top 10 dishes on Foodmento: Read more

    Try the sticky rice with lobster. It's a unique twist on lobster dishes.

    Adna · March 17
  • Ina L.

    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 👍

    John S · August 17, 2014
  • Vincent T.

    Good, quick, cheap food so don't expect 5 star service. Down side is the cash only policy.

    Vincent T · March 22, 2014
  • Alan S.

    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

    Alan Sage · January 11, 2014
  • Jan R.

    The $3.95 chicken Wonton Noodle Soup is a blast

    Jan Roessner · September 15, 2013
  • Judy L.

    Baked rice/spaghetti or the soup noodles are good. Been around for 10+ years.

    Judy Lei · August 24, 2013
  • Lilya N.

    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.

    Lilya Nguyen · August 19, 2013

    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!

    Rock · August 13, 2013
  • Andie S.

    Decent, cheap, authentic...but the service sucks.

    Andie Simon · August 12, 2013
  • Linh N.

    Yummy and cheap. So many options for everyone.

    Linh Nguyen · July 13, 2013
  • Chris T.

    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.

    Chris Tao · May 4, 2013
  • Sunny N.

    Don't get the iced milk tea. It's incredibly bland and watery.

    Sunny Ng · April 18, 2013
  • Vicky B.

    The congee is way tasty.

    Vicky B · March 15, 2013
  • Simran J.

    love the eel over rice.

    Simran Jaising · January 27, 2013
  • Wil S.

    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.

    Wil S · January 1, 2013
  • Wil S.

    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.

    Wil S · January 1, 2013

    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!!!

    Jackie · December 24, 2012
  • Natalie Y.

    Their wontons and dumplings just taste off to me- beware.

    Natalie Yuen · December 10, 2012
  • Linh N.

    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.

    Linh Nguyën · October 29, 2012
  • Linh N.

    Braised stew beef over rice is the bestest!

    Linh Nguyën · October 1, 2012
  • Son D.

    Possibly the most valuable Chinese restaurant in NY, acceptable price, tasty food. Beware: cash only

    Son Doan Hoang · September 5, 2012
  • Hye Yeon G.

    The pan-friend dumplings are a must!

    Hye Yeon G · July 16, 2012
  • Brian N.

    I always get the wonton noodle soup. It's great.

    Brian Nguyen · April 13, 2012
  • Jenny Z.

    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.

  • Julie H.

    Minced beef baked with cheese over rice is boss

    Julie Huang · November 25, 2011
  • Bethany O.

    Best cheap hole in the wall in Chinatown. XO spicy fried chow fun (extra spicy) is one of my personal faves.

    Bethany Olekas · October 23, 2011
  • Hsiang L.

    The Baby Yu Choy with Garlic is one of my favorite, fill my green quota nicely

    Hsiang Lin · October 10, 2011
  • Ying L.

    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.

    Ying L. · September 26, 2011
  • Tiffany L.

    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.

    Tiffany Li · February 10, 2011
  • Mark L.

    Andy loves the teriyaki chicken even though this is not a Japanese restaurant..

    Mark Lloyd · November 16, 2010

    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!

    Jerry C · November 16, 2009
  • Mercedes T.

    Order the Pork, Shirmp, Parsley Wonton Noodle Soup, amazing and it will warm you up!
