Best chinese BBQ place ever!!! There is always a lot of people waiting because trust me, it is worth it. Extremely cheap. It is only a take out place, but you can go to the park in the front, sit there, enjoy your meal and enjoy watching the inside life of China Town.
Really good. Really cheap. Really large portions. Not the best tasting ever, bit really great value.
Got the duck and pork over rice, and it's still so good and cheap. Best bang for your buck in the city!
You can get a five dollar box that is jam packed with meat. You'll often find the line going out the door, but for good reason. Definitely worth dropping by, and if I lived or worked in the area I would definitely go here more often.
Best place for a quick bite

This place is absolutely my favorite secret spot for some good Chinese comfort food. Warm, nostalgic, and super affordable. Buy the frozen 50dumplings-takeout if you live not far. Tastes the same as dumplings my mom makes, and maybe even better. (Sorry Mom)
Great food, fast service, and excellent prices. I had a plate of dumplings for $3, pork ball soup for $2, can of soda for $1, and peanut noodles for $2. All of them tasted fresh and homemade. The portion are huge for the price. We couldn't finish all of our food but we all agreed that it is was excellent for the price. I will be coming back often for a cheap quick filling bite to eat!
Huge servings. Great flavor. The warm dumplings and soup are perfect on a rainy day. Tourists: pair this with a trip to the nearby tenement museum to experience Nyc in the 1800s.
My favorite dumplings in Chinatown, hands down. They have really good peanut noodles and fishball soup as well. The staff is also friendly. If you have a hunger for simple, cheap, deliciois food - stop here!
If they served the peanut noodle dish at Nobo the price would be $24. Best noodle dish ive ever had. Its another level of food.

Great crowd, great drinks, great food. A place you where you can kick back and relax.
Amazing food and great drinks. Owner is awesome and has a habit of getting the customers to take shots of Jamison. Lots of shots of Jamison.
Food is amazing. Jeff is great. Prices are good. Bartenders are friendly. Been there many times.
The best owners and dumplings. So inviting.
So good, especially the drunken fish soup and fisherman's stew. Loved the crispy fried rice. Personable owner. You cannot order too much -- it's all too tasty. Reasonable prices. Great for groups so you can try everything (we numbered 8, paid about $20 each and ate and drank very very well).

Solid Shanghai dumplings. Service is pretty quick and friendly. Our last visit we ended up ordering 5 orders of the soup dumplings. The best are the original pork ones, but the truffle ones were a very close second. Food quality is pretty fresh even for a fairly tourist heavy area.
Has lunch here a week ago with 4 friends from Italy. I knew it was going to be good because there was a constant line to get in. The soup dumplings were all delicious. The scallion pancakes were yummy. We also had the spareribs, whole chili fish and beef with peppers. Everything was amazing. If you are in Chinatown this has to be a must go...
Had a 20 minute wait but once seated, everything flowed well. Soup dumplings were exception as were the veggie dumplings and the shrimp. Courteous and welcoming service made everything extra enjoyable.
I never tried Chinese Soup Dumplings before and these were great! Our server, Tommy, was attentive and taught us how to eat them. Great food and perfect location next to the park. Note: They only accept American Express or cash.
We had a good experience there however, since you can't reserve, you have to wait outside (30 minutes in our case) and the place is very loud and crowded. But the staff is very efficient and the food was very good ! Go there if you want good Chinese food but not for a romantic dinner.

Shanghai food. Nice decoration with good food, tipping is not required or expected. Must try is the jelly fish cold dish, heavy sourced duck, wan ton soup, as well as the Lotus root desert, steaming fish was over cooked. In general it's a friendly great place though.
Hands down best dim sum I've ever had. It was also unlike any dim sum place I've visited before. I'm used to the large banquet hall style places with the little old ladies pushing around the carts and offering their wares, whereas this place has you order from a menu. The prices are a bit higher than other dim sum restaurants, but the gratuity is included so that's nice. The staff was pleasant, knowledgable and downright friendly. We had a large group for a friend's birthday and they were on top of EVERYTHING. It was an awesome experience and I will be returning.
You will think that you've entered through a time traveling door. Like... ha? am I in NY ? how did I get to Shanghai ? Soooo cool. Its not your typical cookie-cutter Chinese joint. Great food, cocktails and service.
A perfect experience. Everything about China Blue is wonderful, an airy room, tastefully decorated with great food and wonderful service. We ate family style, so as to experience more of the dishes, would recommend that! Dongpo Pork was exceptional, as was the lions head meatball, the soup dumplings were predictably excellent, but the vegetable potstickers were what really surprised me, easily the best dumpling I've had in ages, maybe ever. Prices were very reasonable too, I can't wait to go again!
China blue is one of the rare, more upscale Chinese restaurants. It specializes in a shanghainese style. Food is well prepared, delicious and still not extremely expensive. I think the salted egg yolk covered fish was one of the more interesting and delicious items I've had in a long time. Good for groups or alone, a great place to dine for any occasion.
