ThrillistThrillist: Dim sum deliciousness awaits you here, but do not get the chicken feet no matter how bold you're feeling. They are gross.

Ben K.Ben Kessler (@kessler): Typically less crowded than the mega dim sum joints like Jing Fong and Golden Unicorn and the food is just as good. Get the pork buns, shrimp har gow, pork shumei, and lo mai gai.

ZenFoodsterZenFoodster: This cartless NYC dim sum is a letdown! Altho' cheap & freshly-made all day & BBQ Pork Bun (like "Bolau Cha Siu Bao") & Mango Slushee shine, THW has mostly traditional dim sum & not worth 1.5 hr-wait!

Sandy P.Sandy Pae: The large order of dumplings (11 pieces) is perfect for one person and is 3 bucks. Use a combo of the soy sauce, sriracha and vinegar for dipping! Yum!

Untapped CitiesUntapped Cities: The boiled dumplings are great, but the rice balls with beef ($3) are the real star here. Deliciously soft and sticky, they may remind you of mochi... until you get a bite of that marinated beef. Read more.
