The Original Cold Sesame Noodles in America, since 1968

About Us

Chef "Shorty" Tang came to New York City from Taiwan with his family in 1964 and opened up Hwa Yuan Sichuan Inn in Chinatown shortly thereafter in 1968. Since our family's flagship opened almost fifty years ago, we have continued Shorty Tang's legacy though three generations by delivering the most authentic Chinese homestyle cooking in New York at several family-owned restaurants.
