Downhill Alert--Nice Green Bo

For years, New Green Bo (now Nice Green Bo) was the first Chinese restaurant I ran to (sometimes even before checking into my hotel) when I arrived in NYC. Now that I've moved here, it seems the food has really deteriorated. On my last three visits, dishes have been sloppily prepared, over-salted and have tasted strongly of raw garlic. The other night's Double-Sauteed Pork was particularly awful, as were the fried dumplings, with skins much thicker and tougher than they've ever been.

Oh well, with ten gazillion other Chinese restaurants to choose from, I'm sure I can find a couple of other places I like. I wonder if a change of management along with the new name accounts for the decline in the food. Anyone else have a similar experience here?

  1. No management change I know of, they just decided they weren't "new" any more. Maybe that's the problem.

    1. i'm not usually this harsh on the restaurants, but I dont think there was ever a time that i thought it was "uphill" ive tried it so many times over the years and been consistently disappointed and never understood the hype as the food is fairly subpar shanghainese. I mean its not awful, but its very mediocre.

      here are my last two reports on it
