I ordered take-out here just an hour ago. Rather than waiting the typical 15 minutes for my two entrees and appetizer, I waited 45 minutes!! The real reason for the long wait? The lady in charge of take-out/deliveries put it on the "delivery" bench -- by mistake. They realized it about 30 minutes late, and when I called them on it, they completely denied it!! While the food is good, it's not that good. But had they apologized like any other restaurant, I wouldn't be writing this.

I ate at the restaurant's Allen St. location on a Friday night two weeks ago and sat at the side of the restaurant that is a duplex with a bar on the ground floor and people eat right upstairs. The place was very noisy with drunken people and eaters upstairs -- I don??t think people at the bar enjoy as much the clinging sounds of bowls and plates neither.

We ordered authentic Chinese dishes, among all, duck??s blood with chives, rice roll with XO sauce and sauted lotus root with special bean paste sauce are especially oily!

I picked the place after watching Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, ironically, it was quite bizarre, unappetizing and quite sickening seeing our food that literally swim in about 1/4? thick of oil.

If you are attracted by its full menu with more than 300 dishes and want to give the place a try, remember to ask them to be VERY EASY on their oil.

Pros: There are 300+ dishes on its menu

Cons: Food other than congee is way too oily

I have to say that this place has some of the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. My friend did the ordering and whatever she order was great. I really liked the garlic chicken. Yummy! I will definitely be back!

So after a night of drinking and chatting at local bars and friends' house we ended up going to Congee Village for some late night grub. I've heard wonderful things about this place and it didn't disappoint. Snails in black bean sauce, the chicken congee, Chinese water spinach and the highlight, the house half chicken were all very good. The house chicken was so crispy and moist, I almost wanted to ask for another order! Add on some beers and a couple of other tasty treats, which i don't remember, and my 15 bucks went far. I suggest going with someone who is either Chinese or has eaten at the Village before, just so that you can be guided into having the best possible things on the menu.

I had been going to Congee VIllage for years. But, yesterday, I will not be entering the doors of Congee Village again. After placing my order, twenty minutes ago, that included water and rice, the entrees came, but the water and rice never did. Again, I had to ask for water and rice. The water came but the rice never did. I told the waiter, I did not receive my rice that I had asked for. He agreed to get it. Waiting another 10 minutes, and the table next to me (we were before them) got the rice and the waiter just looked at me. The food entrees are smaller, half the size, but higher the price. It did not taste fresh and was salty. The only thing they were happy to get for me is the bill. I left less then a two dollar tip and left as the waiter was bring the free watermelon.

Pros: none

Cons: service, food

Congee Village has a unique selection of foods, not to mention that its congee is exceptionally delicious. An example of their unique menu items would be three-sausage rice, which comes with three different types of Chinese sausage with sticky rice served in a bamboo cylinder! The prices are just about what can be expected from a sit-in Chinese restaurant, and its worth it.

This food here is great and the prices are decent. But the wait can be a turn off. There is usually a long line so be sure to have some reading material to pass the time. Sometimes the service can be less than satisfactory. There seems to be insufficient servers/waiters. You'll feel this more on Friday & weekends. But I still wind up going there and waiting because the food is that good!

Great selection of food. Very tasty and reasonably priced. They also have a bar, which is not very common in many C-town restaurants. Also, they have different rooms for different occasions. This is very unique when combined with the good food. Would recommend.

I was recently at Congee Village for a group dinner and the service was appalling. We had to wait 45 minutes for our first round of drinks, an hour for our food, and our waitress didn't speak English and got several of the orders mixed up. Worse than that, I noticed they serve shark fin soup on the menu. 100 million sharks are fished every year, driving 99% of sharks to be in danger of extinction. Another item on the menu was turtle soup, which can't be legal either. NY is not China, and there should be rules about what can be served here.

The two of us ate lunch here, and they sit us in this really smelly back room the size of a closet. This place seriously smelled like a zoo, or fungus, seriously. Aside from the awful smell, the food was ok, or so we thought. It made one of us go back and forth between the bathroom for a full day. One of our stomachs is still screwy, and we almost got serious dehydration from it. My partner had the same thing but a day later, throwing up as well. And we even ate normal things, like grilled vegetables and soy protein, but still.... I wont go into details, but i highly not recommend it. This place needs a health inspector.

I stopped by on my way home as they were closing looking for some singapore mei fun. After ordering, I sat in the waithing area reading a chinese newspaper, or looking at the pictures at least -- before my food came i looked up to see a BIG R* AT, yes a BIG R* AT coming in from the bar area. It looked around and proceeded to walk right past me into the dining room area where the waiters were cleaning up. There was a guy working at the register. He looked up from his iphone, saw the r* at, then looked at me, smiled sheepishly and then went back to his emailing or texting or IMing or whatever. Truly disgusting. I am not sure how their food compares to other, non-r* at teeming restaurants, but I imagine if you are cool with vermin walking around a place's dining room this place is for you.

My friend's brithday dinner was at Congee Village. It was my first time there and I'm glad I now know about this place. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Service was very fast. I would definitely call before you go there since there is often a wait.

Pros: Great food. Reasonable prices.

better ambiance than most chinese restaurants at the same price. has a bar with fun drinks and ample seating for large groups. sometimes have a wait so make reservations fri/sat nite during peak hrs. for late nite chinese food it's an excellent option but some dishes look better than they really are.

they do congee (rice porridge) well, and they have great other soups, but this baked rice item on the menu is not tasty. my opinion, of course. staff are not super friendly but usually very efficient.

You can expect a non-Chinese crowd here in addition to the Chinese crowd, b/c it's at the fringe of Chinatown.

If you're in the mood for Chinese in a lively atmosphere look no further then Congee Village. Esp great for large parties, the drinks are very reasonable, food is good and prices are decently low without making you suspect of the food. Staff is decent with quick turnaround and the whole place is deceivingly large. Authentic Chinese food that gives you a real b@ng for your buck.

Recently returned to Congee Village and have to agree that service has really fallen off. When ordering a dish we had seen at another table, there was some confusion as the waiters barely speak english. When the dish was brought to us it was not what we wanted. Rather than accept this and simply change the dish the waiter and manager told us it was our fault, and very angrily took the plate away after telling us we would have to pay the difference in cost for the dish we wanted. Agreeing we then waited for nearly forty minutes for our waiter to return, however when he did come back he brought the exact same chicken we'd returned, only now it was deep fried with a different sauce! It looked nothing like the order we had seen at the table across from ours except for the fact that it was now brown! When we asked about it the manager denied that this was the case, but it was quite obvious she was lying. I'll never return to this restaraunt again! Avoid it like the plague!

Cons: poor service,

This place is gross. I saw a huge rodent (i'm not allowed to use the appropriate word on this site) running through the dining room! The service is terrible, the people are rude, the food is not consistent. The first couple of times it was good so I returned, but I'll obviously never go back again!!

I've gone to this restaurant a handful of times since they've been opened, and I have to say that their customer service has taken a nosedive in the last few years, getting worse with each visit. I recently took my friends and coworkers there for lunch, and was so embarrassed by their service. The hostess and wait staff was rude as we requested to be seated near the front of the restaurant, making snide remarks in Cantonese, which thankfully my friends didn't understand. When placing our orders, I spoke with the waiter in Cantonese and translated for my friends, as his English wasn't that great. He and his coworkers made some condescending comments, which I didn't have the heart to relay to my friends. Although one of them understood a little and he was taken aback by this. Although their tones pretty much conveyed what they were saying. Overall, we all agreed that the food was good, but they would never come back on account of the terrible service we had. Another time, I had gone with my Chinese friends for dinner and had worse service. The waitress kept trying to push us to place our orders, even though we were still waiting for people. Throughout the meal, we felt rushed. Some of us weren't even done with our rice and there were still food on the table, and the waitress came by to start clearing dishes and asked if we wanted dessert. Even though some of us were still eating! Then, as we were figuring out the bill, she kept hovering over us and watching us counting our money and grabbed it when we all put our money in. It was the first time that my friends, who are generally very friendly and amiable people, actually complained to the manager as we were leaving.
If you really want to try out the food at Congee Village, as they do have a good selection of dishes, I would suggest visiting their other location on Bowery, about 2 blocks above Delancey. The service is better there. Just be prepared to wait a bit for your table on the weekends.

Congee ("jook" in Cantonese) was served to me in my childhood by my mother when I was sick. This comfort food, eaten centuries by Chinese peasants & noblemen alike, is believed to contain therapeutic qualities strong enough to foil the most foul of ailments. Known for its "jook," Congee Village serves up every variety that remedies any hungry stomach. Yet, in my inaugural visit there, I was enticed to order some of the Village's other specialty dishes. I was surprised to find fried bread ("man-tao") on the menu & enjoyed 6 scrumptious pieces served up with sweet & milky syrup. And what a deal! We ordered the Spicy Salted Crab in Special Sauce, at $10.95, which came with 4 small crabs in a heavenly garlic & dry shrimp sauce. We were equally delighted by the Sauteed Clams with Black Bean Sauce, packed full of flavor to make anyone order another bowl of congee as an accompaniment. The Flounder Fillet in Two Tastes, however, was a half disappointment. The fish itself was fresh & delicious, as items denoted "M.P." should be. The sauteed half of the dish was very clean & light (ching), much like most, Guangdong Cantonese dishes. It was tossed with pea pods & small mushrooms, mixed with a subtly gingery and garlicky white sauce. The fried portion, however, was covered by a batter that was too thick to complement a fish as delicate and mild as fresh flounder -- it was too much like fish n' chips. This part of the dish was a turn-off to me, though my Caucasian (gweilo) dining partner liked it. The woodland village decor is cheap but does the trick of setting the scene?a vast array of local Chinese, tourists, daters, & hipsters alike make it a long wait. However, a few of the ridiculously low-priced cocktails and the great, authentic food to come will take your mind off of it!

I have eaten all over Chinatown before & this is one of my favorite places. It's great because it's not in the heart of Chinatown so it's much easier to find parking. There's usually a wait around dinner time if you come in a large group, but it's not so bad if there's only 2-3 of you. They can definitely accommodate large groups as well since the place is pretty spacious. They have a high turnover rate for food, so you know it's fresh and it also comes out fast as well. I've never eaten anything I didn't like at Congee Village. The place is cleaner than most Asian restaurants I've been to in Chinatown as well.

I know that Congee Village is popular for its namesake dish and frequented by Chinese people (which is an obvious thumbs up for its authenticity) but please try another place that doesn't serve shark fin soup. I know that it's ubiquitous but it's far from innocuous. Obtaining the fins is a barbaric practice that has drastically reduced the shark population. Since it's now illegal in 17 countries, shark finning is largely a blackmarket process and is on par with clubbing seals in its cruelty. Fisherman haul the shark out of the water, hack the fins off, and dump the still-alive shark back into the water to suffocate (can't swim to get oxygen) or get eaten by other sharks. Not ordering shark fin soup obviously helps but boycotting the restaurants that serve it sends a strong message that some cultural practices are best left in the past.

i had my birthday dinner at congee, we were 20 people. the food was delicious and the experience was perfect. i made a reservation in advance, and the staff was very organized and consistent. on the evening of the dinner, they allowed us to show up 15 minutes before our reservation to set up birthday decorations at the tables. when my friends arrived, even though most of them were about 10-15 minutes late for our 8pm reservation, we were seated promptly. we had at least 2 waiters, and no one had to wait for anything. they let us stay as long as we liked, and didn't try to rush us out of there. and they seemed happy, not annoyed, to have us there. the cost? $10 per person, and we ordered several dishes. it went so well that another friend of mine had a birthday there a few weeks later. we stayed til 1am, eating really decent chinese food and being served drinks from the very helpful staff.

Decent food. Was better a few years back. I found an even better place for authentic Chinese food- Dragon Palace on Centre St. They take reservations and don't make you wait an hour even with one!

The food here is good an inexpensive. They accomodate big groups well. Portions are big- so if you do have a big group, I recommend ordering a couple of appetizers and not ordering entres for every person in the group. Make reservations on weekends as this place gets packed. Great place to start your night with dinner and drinks. Mixed drinks are only $4- and are strong. Congee is very good- order it for the beginning of your meal (the seafood one is not good for everyone- too much ginger for some)

Try the congee! I had never had it but am now quite fond of the preserved egg and pork congee. Other dishes are excellent as well. It's fun to dine in but delivery is also excellent. General Tso's chicken is crisp and delicious.

Try the congee! I had never had it but am now quite fond of the preserved egg and pork congee. Other dishes are excellent as well. It's fun to dine in but delivery is also excellent. General Tso's chicken is crisp and delicious.

Pros: Great Chinese food

Cons: Don't offer some of the more traditional Chinese food dishes

.

The food was really just so-so, but we had a big group and they were great! And they have really cheap drinks - also near a lot of great LES bars.

I love everything about this place. The atmosphere is great. One of the rooms has what feels to me like a bamboo cabin. Another great feature are the large round tables they have. This is so if you come with a big group sharing family style you can spin the food around to each other using the round spinner in the middle.
Love that!
There are some really unique dishes on the menu too. I always get the sizzling beef, it's always the first item devoured first by everyone. The bamboo dishes are really great too. I especially like the one with Chinese sausages.
Not only is Congee Village perfect for large groups but it's great for small casual dinners out as well.

Pros: Great food for a great price

.

all the congee is extremely good and reasonably priced. additionally, the bamboo-cooked dishes are very rich in flavor and comforting. this is an especially great place to go on a harsh, cold winter day.

not so sure about the bar though, a lychee martini i had was not very good.

Most of the food we tried was very good. This is among the better Cantonese restaurants in Manhattan. Especially good plates were the salty/spicy crabs and the clams with black bean sauce -- both for about $10! The fresh flounder was very good as well. Alcoholic drinks are very inexpensive. With its "woodland village" theme, the decor balances a fine line between interesting and cheesy. The place gets unbelievably crowded on weekend nights, though (good food for cheap tabs -- why not?) and this is point at which someone expecting a good dining experience might want to consider another place. Kids everywhere, indifferent-to-rude service and a general sense of impending chaos can ruin the appetite of those not used to it (unfortunately, it's par for the course at most crowded Chinatown establishments). Our experience on a busy night wasn't too bad, but I can easily see how it could turn into a nightmare for others. The preferential treatment given to regulars (we witnessed a "Dr. Hong" and his family being seated immediately and with a "house special" soup waiting for them at their table) might rub those among the waiting masses the wrong way.

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in NYC, bar none. I've eaten at two locations, and both are wonderful. One small quibble: sometimes, if you're white, they will give you "the white version" of a meal, i.e., regular Western broccoli will replace the Chinese broccoli I crave. You have to be sure they bring you the good stuff (the confusion only happened once, but others have told me that the staff think they're doing non-Chinese a favor). Love it, love it, love it!

Decor is kind of interesting and so is the layout. Food was made with fresh ingredients. Stick to the traditional Cantonese dishes, which were excellent, can't rave about them enough. Soup, Congee, noodles, bamboo steamed rice, seafood, and fresh vegetable...superb

The group was adventurous, and ordered the Lamb Chops, not that good.

Kids like the Carps in the Bubble Tea section of the restaurant. Something for everyone.

I heard great things about this place, but was pretty disappointed in the results. The plates were dirty with old food stuck to them, there were kids running up and down screaming the whole time with no one stopping them - maybe they are the owners' - there was no service, and one of the chicken dishes ordered was sickly sweet, greasy, and stringy. Not one of Chinatown's better establishments.

The food here is delicious and tastes great. The congee is tasty and loved by nearly everyone. However I think there are too many scallions in it, personally. Service was excellent. Decor is very nice. With a small water fountan in front and bamboo lined booths.

I went here with a group of 10 on a Friday night. We were able to get a reservation on short notice, and they did seat us pretty quickly. The rest of the dinner was so bad, it turned out to be hilarious. Food was terrible, drinks were terrible, service was terrible. The decor was nasty-- I couldn't look around without loosing my appetite. The seating was completely uncomfortable. There were kids EVERYWHERE, yelling, running around. Just when we didn't think the experience could get any worse, something completely unappetizing would happen. It was so ridiculous, we were almost crying, we were laughing so hard. Thank goodness we only had to pay $20 per person, or we would have rioted. Please, PLEASE trust me: this place is a nightmare.

After hearing great things about this place, I planned a dinner here with 8 of my friends on a Saturday night. I made a reservation and didn't have to wait long to be seated. I have to say this was one of the best group dinner experiences I've had in NY. Our waitress didn't speak much english so ordering was a bit confusing, but not impossible and it actually added to the charm. The low prices led to us ordering way too much food which we all enjoyed. The drinks are very cheap which is a nice treat. At the end of the meal you get watermelon - a nice surprise and change from the oranges you usually get at other restaurants. We had a great time, ate until we were stuffed and our total bill came out to $20/person with tip. We'll definitely be going back and trying out one of their karaoke rooms.

Congee Village gets big Ups for a fine establishment. They have it all -- great price, food, and service. The food is prepared quickly and efficiently. And it all comes at a very reasonable price. The takeout is great too since they give high quality tupperware as well. This place is always very crowded and popular.
Specialities: SEAFOOD!!!

We stumbled upon this place and new CitySearch highly recommended it, plus the wait was 30 mins and the place was packed! DON'T BE FOOLED! There is little to no service, and when you get service they are rude. The food took forever and when I got mine it was cold! Save your time and money, don't go here.

We went this past Saturday and it was a bad experience. The wait staff was terrible. The mushroom and chicken congee were watered down and tasteless. White rice were very sticky and too moist. We asked the waiter to change the unacceptable ones but he muttered and said that he's going to change them and after he does, don't ask to change it again. We had a flounder fish that was fillet into balls but there were fish bones. Kitchen staff was not careful enough. Walnut shrimp was not worth the money. Few pieces of shrimp, unthoroughly cooked. Clam with black bean sauce was bland. As if they just slap on some soy sauce. Fruit or sweet dessert soup were missing. We did not get either one. But we did get a waitress who stood behind me and looked over my shoulder when I was reviewing the bill.

For tasty selections, value & a fun atmoshphere, one can not go wrong coming here. A little cheaper than in c-town but parking is terrible. Sat in village type room seating 8 of us. The selections quite varied, the beef chow fun, vegetable dishes & their "jook" (congee/porridge) were all very good. My kids picky as they are actually ate a lot & behaved also which made dinner more pleasant. Cocktails were ok, not so good with chinese food so hot tea was fine for us. I personally have come back for pick up, saving 50 cents or a dollar is no big deal but when you get tasty food, then saving money is a bonus.

Congee village is a great place for some super yummy Chinese food with a large group of friends... everything is served family style. The prices are incredibly cheap. When I went with a group of 6 people we stuffed ourselves and still only ended up paying $15 each. There are alot of different dishes...I recommend the seafood rice dish served in a bamboo "bowl" and, of course, try any of the congee dishes...they are warm and delicious. The decorations in this restaurant make you feel like you're in a jungle...not spectacular, but a fun, busy place to eat with friends. The only real downside is that we had to wait an hour for our table. It might be better to come alittle earlier than dinner time if you want to get a table quickly. Still, you can get drinks at the bar while you're waiting. Happy eating~!

We often eat in Chinatown and this place has horrible staff. Despite reservations, we ended up waiting for 1hr+. No one came to take our order for another 20 min. We wrote the order down ourselves, using menu numbers. They rejected our written order and forced us to read the order out without the numbers. Then we asked if we could refridgerate my birthday cake. The waitress pointed at a shelf and told us to put it there. My friend said that that was not a fridge. The staffer barked for us to put it there. Whenever we asked for anything (soya), they ignored us. Later, the waitress tore the cake boxes apart (making it impossible to take the leftover cake home). It was a terrible experience and I will never return to Congee Village. The food was below average. Many many competitors offer a superior product and service.

This is a place where you can go and eat. The food was quite excellent, very tasty, and light on the stomach. The service was excellent. The waiting time was excellent. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. The decor of the restaurant makes you feel like you are in China. If you look under the big round tables there is light and in the center of it are rocks and blue and green shiny pebbles or some kind of decor. It is quite elegant.

The food is spectacular and cheap, and the atmosphere is wonderfully weird. The service is totally brusque and intrusive, but it doesn't matter at all. This place send me into a hazy dream state of total deliciousness. Get the (cheap as hell) drinks and be prepared for greatness. Best dishes: squid with salt pepper, vegetable congee, chinese salted pancake.

My boyfriend and I were new to NewYork and we just came across this restaurant. Their congee was fantastic. We ordered tons to food that we were familiar with. One bite and we looked at each other in utter shock. It was totally homemade food. Not like other restaurants food. I highly recommened their congee and fish dish

awesome place, cheap good food, cheaper drinks, really fast service.. get there before 8ish pm if you want fast seating, it gets really packed around 830 fri and sat nights.. kinda cheesy decor but you're absorbed in the food so ambience doesnt matter.. waiters seem to be patient with non-cantonese speakers but it might be better to go with someone who does speak it.. overall worth it

Congee Village has a great atmosphere and delicious food at such an affordable price! Outside, it is decorated with fake bamboo. Once you walk inside, there are plants and bamboo as well, making it feel like an tropical atmosphere. Food is decently priced. You can have a drink and a meal for $5-$10 including tip. Great place for a dinner or lunch party with friends!

I went here on a Sunday night with 2 friends. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and enjoyed peanuts and cocktails at the bar (drinks are $3.50!). For dinner we sampled appetizers, pork buns, meat and vegetable dishes, as well as two congees. All the food was fresh and flavorful, especially the country style crab and greens with garlic. The food is real Cantonese, and for those who might find frog and intestine intimidating, there are plenty of familiar Chinese dishes available. The service was not overly friendly, but the waitstaff was very attentive and more than satisfactory. The restaurant is large with lots of bamboo and Chinese decorative touches, but is not tacky. There were many families there and they have large tables to accommodate groups and family-style meals. We enjoyed it so much we're planning a party there next month in one of their private rooms.

I went there for dinner. The food was good and had a lot of flavor. I really enjoyed Pan Fried Flounder - the fish was so fresh, outside was crispy, inside juicy. I also like the ambience, as it has an interesting structure and design that make this place feel/look like a non-Chinese restaurant. Service was ok, though. Although we made an appointment, we didn't find out our name when we got there(though we were seated promptly). And when we tried to order some additional food, they said they don't really want to do it because it would take 15 minutes to prepare - obviously they wanted us to leave because there were people waiting outside. So if you go, make sure to order enough and go early.

We made a reservation for 5:30pm (20 people) and people were still arriving at 5:45 (over half the group was there) when the manager came over and literally yelled at us for not being on time saying it was a busy time for him, when in fact there were several empty tables throughout the restaurant. It was incredibly rude and unprofessional of him. And then the service was just bad throughout the night - temperamental waiters, they said they ran out of Congee which we found hard to believe since that's what they're known for. There were 2 who throughout the night were very nice and tried to make up for the rude behavior of the manager/owner but the impression had already been ruined by that point.

Although not the best decor, congee is very good - especially the salted chicken congee! The best dish, by far, is the house special chicken. It's deep-fried, juicy and smothered with garlic... Probably the best chicken I've ever tasted! Somewhat agree with the previous reviews about service and the long wait but once seated, the food is well worth it.
