Best of Chinatown

Visiting the city and will be staying down in Soho. Would like a recommendation for a great Chinese restaurant. Years ago Peking Duck House was considered good. Still?

Thanks

    I didn't like Peking Duck House. Even their signature dish didn't really wow me. While I love Shanghainese places like Nice Green Bo, I think some of the best food in Manhattan comes from Grand Sichuan, which has a location not far from SoHo on 7th Avenue South. There is even better if you're willing to travel a bit more. Chinatown, however, is worth it for its profusion of fantastic Chinese snack foods:

      I'm a big fan of Nha Trang (the one on Baxter St next to the italian place, not the one a block west) for excellent pho and Vietnamese spring rolls (haven't actually tried much else on the menu...) Then go across the street to Dragon Land Bakery for bubble tea.

        Ping's Seafood for dimsum. Amazing 66 for lunch or dinner. Chinatown Ice Cream Factory for ice cream and Tai Pan Bakery for amazing baked goods.
