Please recommend a Chinatown restaurant for a New Year's banquet. Especially interested in unusual and authentic, not Americanized or fusion cuisine. Thanks.

  1. it's on the late side, isn't it? I went to one on the 8th, I believe. A while ago, in any case.
    We went to the place next to Sang Kee. It was good, possibly very good, although I certainly wouldn't call it great.
    My GF's family is from Hong Kong, so they order off of the 'other' menu - the one in Chinese.

    1. I tried Lee How Fook two weeks ago and tried my best to order banquet style for a party of two. I'd give it a 4 out of 10, due to inauthentic and sloppy preparation and horrible service.

      Sorry I can't be of any help.

      1. Joseph Poon is offering a 10-course New Year's banquet, which we tried last weekend: http://www.josephpoon.com/banquetChin.... It was good, not great.
