sammys is worth 6hrs on a NJT train – I've been going to Sammy's for years, since i was in high school, while going to SVA and every time i go back to the city. I once rode a train for 3 hours one way to go to dinner at Sammy's, walk thorugh MOMA and get right back on the train. I was doing field research at Lakehurst Navy Base in NJ, we got rained out one day and i HAD to have thier cold sesame noodles and BBQ duck....
Great Food, Fast Service – The food here is simply great. One of the best Chinese joints in the city but relatively inexpensive. Service is pretty quick and attentive as well. Can accomodate lone diners and big groups as well!
I'm very picky about my Chinese food especially since I'm Chinese and my mom is a great cook, but this is one place I often go to for their Beef Stew Noodles. I've taken my dad there before and he always asks me if we can go there again when he visits me just for the beef noodles. Big bowl of stewed beef with just a bit of the tendon to keep it good and juicy. Other stuff there is pretty good too including chicken with eggplant. Decent value for decent chinese food for the area - obviously you can get cheaper down in chinatown.
please!! – some of these reviews truly surprise me. you can get better, cheaper and more authentic chinese food a short ride away in chinatown. this place has nothing on any number of noodle shops down there. i went here twice - the first time because nothing else was open and this place looked good.... all of us were disappointed. the second time, i must have forgotten how mediocre the food was. what a mistake. the roast pork was on par with the worst of the take-out places in suburban new jersey, and the broth had no flavor and on top of that the dumplings tasted like the frozen ones in the supermarket. but then i should have paid more attention to the fact that no chinese people were actually eating in this place when i walked in.
do yourself a favor and go to chinatown for some real chinese food.
Best NYC Chinese... Period – The no frills decor is actually an asset at this amazingly tasty restaurant, because it keeps all of the trendy posers away. Every dish here is excellent, cheap, and gigantic. Highly recommend any dish with the words pork, bun, noodle, or dumpling any where near the title. The fried rice with chinese sausage is another stand out. This is also a fabulous place to seat 15 people on the drop of a hat. Service is functional -- they keep the water glasses full.
Try the Roast Pork Bun! – Hands down thee best in cheap eats. Don't expect to ask for a course break, they seat you, you order, the food comes flying out, you eat...once finished the check comes with fortune cookies. BOOM, you're out in a half hour. Anything on the menu I'd recommend and a couple could eat for around $20...you should share and entree the portions are tremendous. The roast pork bun at 1.95 is almost a meal in itself. Fresh baked dough filled with gobs of sweet roast pork. awesome. Noodle soups at $5.95/6.95 are enough to eat for a meal and then take home for leftovers. Delivery within the area shows up within 10-20 minutes. If you're into roast meats you have to try this place. Especially the roast pork which is incredibly sweet and tasty. Same for the ribs. Not a place to take a first date ;)
fast service, good eats cheap – Seems like the food gets to your table right after you order it! Big plates of steaming hot, good quality Chinese everytime. Food isn't that spicy but the prices are cheap and the restaurant is bustling and fun.
