Took a group of 25 students during a visit to New York. They all thoroughly enjoyed the food, and could not even finish it as the portions were huge. I had the spare ribs - super. The wantons were so fresh. A really good find

We came in after a very long walk in the city, probably 10 miles or so, and were starving. The food was delicious and inexpensive. The service however could use some improvement (as in most Chinese restaurants)

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
