Kam Chueh is a hidden gem of Chinatown. Off of Mott street, so a little tougher to find but well worth the extra block or two walk. Pros: Prices, Amazing food, good portions

One of the best in Chinatown 9/8/2005

Last reviewer is crazy, this place is hardly dime-a-dozen! Kam Chueh is one of, if not my very favorite restaurant in Chinatown. You don't go for the ambiance, you go for the exceptional Chinese food. (DUH!) MUST HAVE: Clam casserole, crispy duck. The dungeoness crab is delicious, but not so easy to eat--be prepared to make a mess. Salt+pepper squid is very good too, but it pales in comparison to that clam casserole. Oh, what a clam casserole! Just get that and the crispy duck and you gettin' ready to be a rrrrrich nnnnnig... more

Seafood Galore, Late Night Horror 8/8/2005

Having dined here often, I must say they are no different than most Chinese seafood specialty restaurants around. Their salt and peppered squid and house special seafood pan friend noodles are exceptional. One thing negative about this place is that the food and service goes for a major dive after 11:30 PM (since they are open late) and the service becomes lazier than ever. Plus the prices don't justify the so-so quality in food. Highly recommended you try this place sometime in the afternoon and concentrate on the seafood dishes. Don't expect anything too fancy or unique, as its a ""dime a dozen"" Chinese seafood restaurant. Pros: Seafood Cons: Prices, Quality, Service more

what to order 6/30/2004

This is a seafood joint. I think I might not have been clear enough about that to friends I've directed here. DO NOT order your normal chinese dishes. DO order salt and pepper squid, razor clams, any whole fish (steamed with ginger and soy), crabs, snails in black bean sauce. These are among the best in the city. The hunan beef or whatever is not. more

Not bad ... 3/21/2004

Good food, good fun for a group. Shrimp & broccoli w mayonnaise was great & definitely not the usual fare. Some of our veg dishes were delicious as well, but of course there was also the ubiquitous overly-sweet brown sauces that seem to smother everything Chinese, as well as the obvious presence of MSG in every dish. And, I can't help but feel that non-Asians are taken for a ride in the restaurants of Chinatown. And a FAST ride at that. Our food arrived so rapidly & our service was so harried that I got the feeling that we were being rushed in & out. And at $25.00 a person, I'd prefer to take my time. Pros: decent food, funky location, fun for a group Cons: , over priced more
