BYOB Chinatown Resto for Group of 10 - 14 people

Making a quick one night trip to NYC and promised my team a Chinatown meal. I used to go to Yeah Shanghai, but was curious where the board would recommend I take them nowadays? Open to cuisine (I'd also thought AYCE hotpot, if there are any, would be cool), but wanted somewhere reasonably priced, good and conducive to a large group. All ideas appreciated!

      how is NYC noodle town for large groups? and do they take reservations? ive actually never made it there and it seems like it would be great for a large group so we can try more things.

        I don't think NY Noodletown would work for 10-14 people. It is not that large of a space and they only have 2-3 large round tables. Perhaps Shanghai Heping or Fuleen would work.

          what about Yeah's or New Green Bo? Are they no longer around / up to par?

          1. re: FattyDumplin

            Have not stepped in either place in years so can't vouch for them. I think New Green Bo is now New Nice or Nice New Green Bo. Famous Sichuan on Pell might be another option.

              Thanks! Helping sounds like it might work.

            i was once in a Noodletown a few years ago and witnessed an ugly late-night argument btw a group of BYOBers and the manager (both the group and the manager were rude, and while i'm not sure who was more at fault, it made me never want to hazard BYOBing there)...

            And when i went there a couple months ago, food wasn't up to par in any case...

      2. Only AYCE hotpot I'm aware of in Chinatown is the recently opened 99 Favor (sic) Taste on Grand.
