We were concerned that arriving late with rather large group we would be turned away, but no, very welcoming and no rush, even though we were the only ones there. Very large choice of food - we started with dumplings and garlic cucumber slices, then roast duck (huge portion) and crispy sesame beef. There really is something for everyone, even... More

Very small restaurant, narrow and they only accept cash. The dim sum we ordered was really good and my daughter liked her beef pan fried noodles dish but I ordered the stewed beef with rice and it was terrible, so bad that my server took it off my bill. Maybe it was my fault for not understanding what stewed is... More

For the past seven plus years, whenever I would visit NYC, I would stop at Shanghai Cuisine for their soup dumplings (I get both the pork and the crab). They would always serve great food but the aging restaurant was barely looking the part (this never bothered me though...I only cared about the food!). Thankfully, Shanghai Cuisine has been renovated... More

In New York recently on a family trip we spend some time wandering around Chinatown and decided to have an early dinner there before heading back downtown to our hotel. At 6pm this place was already very busy, but we were found a table inside, right at the corner of the outside area looking out onto Mulberry and Barnard and... More

We ordered a selection of dishes to share between 4 people and nothing disappointed. Food was served in a steady flow, letting us enjoy each dish fully. Cash only!!!! No credit cards!

This is a nice piece of China among NYC Chinatown. Highlight of the meal was the sweet and sour fish. Very much recommended, friendly staff well located quick and efficient service.

We came here for our last meal out and we wish we had found it earlier. We had a set 3 course meal which was fantastic, the place was themed well and was very authentic. My only criticism is the service was not the best and an automatic service charge was added which I thought was high for a table... More

We had deep fried spring rolls, crab steam rolls and vegetable dumplings. Nothing special and not worth sampling. An 18% tip is included and we never got $3 in change. My wife did not like this place at all. Bad choice on our part.

I've been coming here for years and still enjoy the Shanghai crabmeat soup dumplings ($6.75). The pork soup dumplings are good too ($5.75). But veggie dumplings ($4.75) were meh. And the sticky rice shiu mai ($4.25) was just plain weird. Stick to the first two dumplings. One order per person with an order of fried rice or noodles would make... More

Stopped here just passing by. Enjoyed it very much. Try the shu Mai with pork and shrimp, unbeatable! Friendly staff and ambiance

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
