A List of the Best Chinese Restaurants in New York City That Offer Takeout and Delivery
Including neighborhood favorites like Nom Wah Nolita, Han Dynasty and more.
New York City is known for having restaurants that serve a variety of cuisines. Chinese food, in particular, has earned its spot in many New Yorkers’ top picks. Since the 1800s, the Big Apple has seen Chinese individuals from 34 different regions migrating to the city. Over time, they have introduced their signature dishes — ranging from dumplings and noodles, to smoked duck and roast pork belly — to America.
Over the past few months, several states in the country have been under lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This shift has caused businesses to shut down temporarily or even permanently. Amid the health crisis, some restaurants have managed to stay open by offering takeout and delivery options. For those thinking of ordering Chinese food for lunch or dinner, we’ve gathered the best spots in NYC that are guaranteed to satisfy your cravings.
From Nom Wah Nolita‘s pork soup dumplings and Han Dynasty‘s dry pepper tofu, to Wu’s Wonton King‘s roast duck wonton noodle soup and more, scroll down to discover our favorite joints and see our recommended dishes.
