My Favorite Chinese Restaurants in Manhattan

  1. 01

    Jun-Men Ramen Bar

    Asian Restaurant in Chelsea
    Our Highlight

    The Jun-Men is one of the best restaurants for ramen in the city. By the way, Jun-Men means “noodles, straight up”. The secret of a really good ramen dish is the broth, which is sometimes reduced for hours and in the end is really “concentrated” and delicious. Absolutely sensational and once you have tasted it, you will understand why we rave about it so much.

    Super Taste

    Asian Restaurant in Chinatown
    Our Highlight

    Here it can quickly get crowded, the shop is really super small. Super Taste is probably the best place to visit in Chinatown NYC if you are looking for some authentic and great quality noodles. The amazing food is reason alone to visit but with the amazing prices on offer, this is a no-brainer to get a quick and delicious bite to eat on your way through Chinatown.

    Make sure to try the pork belly bao – one of our favorites!

    Here you get the best Peking duck in town. The restaurant is well known beyond the city limits.

  6. 06

    Glur

    Asian Restaurant in Chelsea
    Add to myNY added

    Glur is a vegan-friendly restaurant with a cozy exterior, interior, and menu! And they serve Thai food, another type of cuisine that hasn’t been mentioned on this list so far.

    On Glur’s site, they describe their restaurant as a place where you can find vegan comfort foods and when you take a look at their menu… you’ll see that they’re telling the truth.

    With their warm soups and delicious noodles, even the term “comfort food” doesn’t do their dishes justice! And if you do decide to visit… be sure to try their red curry and crispy tofu, because those are two of the most popular items.

    Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is another phenomenal restaurant for Korean barbeque. The meat here is very high-quality and is a great option for large group dinners. If you call in advance, you can usually make reservations for groups of 6 or more. We would specifically recommend trying the melon liquor, the galbi grilled beef, and the dosirak lunch box.
