She is right, service was horrible and waiter is no good. But some food is good and cheaper. I only go at lunch special to order food( 11: 00-3: 30pm), eat then go.😂😂😋😎
Good menu has spicy to not , juicy bun, noodle dish, all delicious, plus great price for 2 still can afford go out for dessert and coffee
Service was subpar: my wife and I were seated at a table without a second chair and had to wait several minutes before a chair was provided, ordered one order of soup dumplings and was provided two, advised staff that we ordered only one and was told that we actually ordered two unapologetically. Food was subpar: the soup dumplings had thick skin and were prone to rupture, the pan fried noodles had a very salty sauce and did not have much meat. Overall a disappointing experience. Shanghai Cafe next door was closed for renovations which is why we tried this restaurant today and we will likely stick with Shanghai Cafe going forward for Manhattan and You Garden (closer to subway) or Kung Fu Xiao Long Bao (best soup dumplings) for Flushing Chinatown. Edit: Had GI issues after eating there as well, at least it isn't full-on food posioning....
Also known as Shanghai cuisine, the resto have lots of delicious dish options like Shanghai Pork dumpling soup, Pork Fried rice, Shanghai wanton soup and lots lots more.Its right beside a parking spot, its the best way to park in China town since street parking is hard to come by.Its spacious and need not wait long to get a seat. They have bigger tables that can accommodate more people at a time. Restrooms are available down stairs.Crew are busy but attentive to customers. Just get their attention by waiving your hands if you need something.Order was quick and food were hot and freshly cooked!
Excellent quality, very good service, pleasant although simple atmosphere, reasonable prices.
Service good. Food came fast. Cheap prices. Dumpling were good. Chicken a little fatty
This is a very good and safe Chinatown establishment. Super inexpensive lunch with hot and sour soup included (no choice). Hot and Sour soup was very good, white rice was a little over cooked and the shredded beef dish was fresh and tasty. I would call it competent Chinese food. To get 5 stars 🌟 wait staff needs a little happiness dust ✨ Restaurant is clean but they use area near stairs in the dining area for box storage... a no-no of course.
Delicious tasty food. Large portions and reasonably priced.
Being the first time at this place, I liked it. The food that I ordered was delicious. My friends and I enjoyed the food, the place, and its service. It is good to dine alone or as a group. The dishes are big enough to share (which is the ideal thing to do). This place is best known for its dumplings. I did not tried them but from what I saw at other tables, it looked tasty.
I enjoy this place a lot. Great scallion pancakes (greasy yet delicious), beef in garlic brown sauce is tasty, and you can’t go wrong with shrimp or pork dumplings. There isn’t much for an exterior but who cares? The food is good.
Very bad service 0000. Food is ok. If someone don’t care about service, it is ok but I won’t come in ever again.. never never with these people
Quick service, food was hot(ask for linch menu for smaller plate. A pot of tea was placed as soon as we sat down. The price was good. The food had great flavor. The meal also came with some soup. It was a thick soy based egg drop with some tofu and something I couldn't identify. I tried a few spoonfuls and passed on it. We both had general tso's and pan fried pork dumplings. The first dumpling was a little heavy on sage. After that though they were very tasty. I would not hesitate to eat hear again, while visiting China town.
I only get the beef chow fun from here as a take out. I like it! Service is fast and friendly. Air conditioning was working. Lots of tourists and us natives!
This restaurant is frequented by locals and those-in-the-know alike for their soup dumplings which are out of this world. The service is fast, they're attentive and there's a ton of space, even on Chinese celebrations. Love this place!
There is a 3000 restaurants in Chinatown and I walk into this one?I must look very ugly to the staff? I don't know why? Why are they always hollering?Why do I need to ask 3 times for the lunch special menu?The food was hot and the beer cold. So they get 2 stars....Going to try the place next store, and see if they are better..Will let you know.
Soup dumplings are very good, service needs improvement overall good food!
Service is not good, found blue pieces in my fried rice. Food was average.
Loved. Great authentic Chinese food with good service too.
Food is great. I always enjoy here
Friendly and good food !
The dumplings and spring rolls were good but the waitress rushed by without a smile.Very effective if you want food and no frills...
Great food, great fun
Food was good, unfortunately the service was not. We were brought the wrong item twice, the waitress rushed us to order, and at the end she basically chased us as we walked out and and demanded a 15% tip even though it is not included in the bill nor stated on the receipt or anywhere in the restaurant. Good service = good tip. We left something but it wasn't what she wanted. That was rude.
Friday Night, the night of Chinese Lunar New Year, place is packed to the max. But was still able to get a seat for two after about a 10 minute wait. The turn around is pretty quick.Ordered:Kau Fu - Tofu mixed with peanuts and some bamboo shoots, great cold dished appetizer. Very good for vegetarians.Crab and Pork Soup Dumplings - Very flavorful, soupy and hot. The waitress forgot to give us the soy sauce vinegar condiment. Had to ask for later during the meal. The place was very busy, but managed to wave someone down to give us some sauce.Beef Pan Fried Noodles - Noodles are very crispy, but after you mix the gravy and let it sit for a minute or so, it becomes soft and al dente.The place looks very clean and bright in some areas. But the left side of the Restaurant is very dark, I wish there was more lighting under the curved walls where I sat.
Love the spicy stewed beef and Shanghai fried rice.
Looking for dim sum in Chinatown, NY. They got an "A" rating on door. Food was tasty. We ordered several different dishes to try. Service was ok. Started off very friendly, then seemed like we were a bother, then couldn't find anyone to pay bill. Manager chastised another customer for not paying enough tip-very awkward! I don't think I would visit again.
Hard to beat this one! Fantastic, huge bowl of Wonton soup, awesome dumplings, tasty entrees. Been coming here for years and they never disappoint. Can’t beat the price for NYC. 3-4 servers per table. Unlike most places in China Town, these guys take Visa/MC. Try it our when you’re visiting NYC. You’ll love it!!
Mediocre unremarkable food. The outrageous thing about the experience was the demand for a 20% tip saying that it was legally required. I would have otherwise been inclined to do so but the extraordinarily rude barking woman made sure that we left nothing. I will never go here again and intend to report to DCA.
Be careful as the guys will charge you more than listed in the menu, arguing that for a party of four they need to bring more food. And be aware as they charge you more than 15% for tip.
Amazing soup dumplings. Great food at amazing prices.
When I was broke, I go here a lot for food with friends, it is so cheap and filling and taste amazing. soup dumping of 8 is around $5-6. I usually get the shanghai style fried rice cake with it. The scallion pancake for $3, perfect amount of greasy and crispy is a must try. Two people and we generally spent $20 including tips. It is so worth the money
Solid, great food. Not crowded at all on a rainy Tuesday night.
Slow, slow,slow service. I was dropping utensils on the floor to get attention.Food was tasty but small portions.Front entrance is not wheelchair accessible. Steps are slippery when wet.
I love them ! I always havethe same thing ! The pork and crab meat soup dumplings ! They already know my face there haha . I see alot of complaints about services and tipping . Here's the thing . 1. This is a fast casual type of establishment . You come in you eat quick and you leave . And during lunch hours they churn and burn . If your looking to sit and relax after your meal this isn't the place . And nor should you expect that . 2. Just tip ... They depend on that money . And honestly they're efficient . No they won't get your jacket off for you lol . But they will make sure to get your food out quickly deliciously and make sure you have plenty of water . The food is fantastic . And if you want something cheap and delicious do lunch !! And seriously do the soup dumplings . It's the best in town! I seriously love the place and the staff !!
My family visited Chinatown today and have a lunch at this restaurant the food is ok but the service is so terrible. The waitress demanded for 15% of tips so I am not agreeable with her the reason areTip is just optional More or less are depending on her service I do understand the waitress job is depending on tipping but if you are received less on tip please look at your service The owner of this restaurant please training your staff again it is hurting your business if it keep happening again If anyone would like to come here be aware of it
Great accidental find. Delicious food, good price. Nice atmosphere for date or group. Would come again!
Fast ordering, followed by baby bocchoi with mushrooms.Would be nicer when using the downstairs restroom by giving the steel stairs a fresh coat of paint.Other then that a nice Chinatown stop.
Decent spot, scallion pancake and red- fried pork are solid
This place has really improved! The last time I was here the food was bad and it was terribly cold but this time it was delicious! U don't know what changed but keep it up.
Food was slightly cold. Xiaolongbao skins way too thick. Tends to be too salty.
Very good portions. Service is fast. The food is tasteful and you they serve a complimentary Jasmine tea. Plus it's very affordable.
I came here because Shanghai Cafe Deluxe next door is now closed. The scallion pancake was good. Cooked more than I am used to, but I liked it. The soup dumplings were good, but not great. They had quite a bit of meat in them, the soup was a bit on the sweet side, and the dough was a little too thick. Great prices.
Old school soup dumpling joint...delish!
Overall my experience here was pretty average. The menu had a good selection of entrées and the food was OK but unremarkable. Ambiance was what you'd expect for Chinatown. Service was reasonably expeditious but decidedly unfriendly and everything was just a little bit sticky.
Good food and for a good price! ❤
