Both the one nearby MOMA and the one in China town are not to be missed. Impressive & delicious food @ a reasonable price. My favorite Chinese in NY

Had lunch here on a recent trip to NYC. Thought food was excellent especially the roasted Peking chicken. Unusual but really tasty. Also loved the dumplings.

We love the Joe’s Shanghai in Chinatown, NYC and we thought we’ll have the same experience in Midtown, NYC. But we were wrong! The prices are double. Pork steamed buns in Chinatown you get 8 with each order for $6.25 in Midtown you get 6...More
