Restaurants in Chinatown (New York City) Reviews
Newest Review: ... go back to my hotel room but my cousin would have none of that. So off we walked looking for a place that was busy I had been told to look for a place that had people eating already because that meant it was good. If no one was there then don't go as it meant that not even the locals would eat there. So that's what we did. We must have walked past about 20 different places before we settled on this one. We had stopped to read the menu when this lady stuck her head out the door yelled something to us that we could not understand then told us to come in come in as she ducked back in to take care of the customers that were already there I ... more

In April of this year I had the great luck to be able to visit New York City as I had never before been my Husband was more than willing to let me know what I needed to see and do while I was there. As he was not going he had a huge list of things for me to do. One of them was to visit China Town and eat at any one of the hundreds of restaurants that are spread over the few blocks that make china town. So we chose our second day to go to China town and shop and eat. We rode the Subway to get there and when we got off the train and walked up the stairs back above ground it was almost as if we had walked into a totally different time and place. All I could ...

I recently visited New York in March 2007 and we decided to take a trip out to chinatown as we had heard that there was great bargains to be found. Chinatown is like a different world you wouldn't think that you are in New York at all. Its very busy and if you don't like lots of people about this is not the place for you. The street are dirty and quite frankly smelt a wee bit. The merchants can be very pushy and are constantly trying to get you to buy their purfumes, handbags, watches etc. This can get quite annoying after an hour or so, as they are constantly in your face asking do you want to buy a watch or handbag and saying that they do the best price! If ... Read the complete review

If you have time after seeing the main attractions in New York, I recommend going to see Chinatown in lower Manhattan. The place is full of atmosphere, tradition and culture. The local residents are used to tourists and pay you little attention as they go about their daily business. This is particularly gratifying as you get a good feel for the hussle and bussle that is New York City. There is a strong market culture in Chinatown, as most of the streets are taken over by street traders. The Chinese love their produce to be fresh so you will often see fish to be sold still alive and swimming in bukets! If you get an oppurtunity to eat there do ... Read the complete review

Chinatown is a district in lower Manhattan. It is next door to Little italy and it is easy to do the two districts at once, in fact I would recommend it as one is such a contrast to the other. We walked through Chinatown by night, ther best time to see it because all the neon lights are so bright. There are loads of restaurants and cafes lining the streets and even more little shops and stalls that are open every evening selling all kinds of toys and plastic nik-naks made in Taiwan. The restaurants look interesting and they tout their fresh ingredients on the pavements outside. We decided not to eat in Chinatown when we passed by buckets and buckets ... Read the complete review

When I visited NYC people told me Chinatown is a must-see so I went. This is a very unique area in Manhattan with completely different culture compared to the rest of NYC. Most people there are Cantonese, I guess. Cause I heard them spoke Cantonese. Some of them (especially older ones) don't speak English at all but had been staying there for years. Imagine living in NYC without English, this is just like a little China of it's own. Since Buddism is the major religion for chinese people, there's a temple (quite large building) in the Chinatown with lots of people coming to worship the Buddha everyday. Along the street are mostly grocery shops and ... Read the complete review
