Best Dim Sum in NYC. Broccoli, pork buns, and soup dumplings are high notes but it's all 💯
Try the steamed-to-order shrimp-and-snow-pea-leaf dumplings, packed with minced shrimp, flecks of scallions and bright, fresh snow-pea leaves. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more.
Support this place. Iconic. Classic. Too many old NYC establishments have been closing. Please don't let this be next.
April Bloomfield: "My go-to dim sum spot. Arrive early to beat the crowds and fill up on delicious shrimp dumplings and steamed BBQ pork buns pushed around on trolleys by sweet Chinese ladies."
if you're coming with non-chinese people, don't let them order. also come with a game plan of what you want to eat.
Dim sum deliciousness awaits you here, but do not get the chicken feet no matter how bold you're feeling. They are gross.
Dim sum gets super busy around 11am on weekends, but worth the wait to come at noon when they bust out the goodies: snails, clams, tripe (along with the usual dumplings and shumai). So cheap, too!
The earlier you get here the better! Like at 9 am
Baked BBQ pork buns specifically, but everything is great (we also had fried pork dumplings, streamed shrimp dumplings, spring rolls and streamed rice balls - all great).
The 4 hour wait ruins the entire experience, not worth it. Be prepared to wait an extra hour after being texted to come (after a 3 hour wait), to watch the slowest staff ever run this restaurant
Is it the best dim sum I've had in my life? Yes. Would I wait 3 hours though, definitely not. Get the har gow and steamed rice roll. The pork buns were too sweet for me.
My favorite dim sum spot in Chinatown. Save room for the seafood options (duh), especially the shrimp dishes.
I had the dim sum. It was ok. Then we ordered duck and we were finally satisfied. Staff doesn't speak English.
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.
Perfect blend of Jing Fong/Red Egg experiences: you can order both off the cart and off the menu, but without the 30-45 min wait for seats. Get pork ribs, steamed pork buns, and tofu rolls
A bit less touristy than its neighbor, Jing Fong, this is a solid dim sum option in Chinatown. We love the chive dumplings the most!
One of rhe best dimsum and live seafood in Chinatown.
Yum! Great dimsum at cheap prices. Come at 10:30 AM for a shorter wait. The radish cake and shrimp dumplings are delicious, and the pig egg custard buns are very popular.
You don't have to pay taxes if you pay in cash.
This spot mainly serves seafood-based dim sum. The shumai (pork and shrimp) and the har gow (shrimp) dumplings are great. But the best thing here is the warm custard filled "little piggy" bun.
Agreed, the dim sum platter is great for lunch. But I'm OBSESSED with the tofu aubergine and Chilean sea bass! Love the decor too
Great date spot, a good place to weed out the culinarily incompatible...sweet and sour what, check please...love the family style portions too, good for groups of synesthesiacs.
Finally in NY! Start off with a Smoky Negroni - a twist on a classic cocktail with a Grand Marnier smoke infusion- simply sublime!
One of the best chinese restaurants in Chinatown. The staff is also very nice! Order the pork and crab tiny buns with some rice cake and maybe some dumplings on the side!
If you are within 5 blocks of this place, I can't understand a scenario in which you should not drop for an order of pork soup dumplings.
The best soup dumplings in the city! Amazingly never too crowded, and spacious for Chinatown.
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!
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.
Order the huge plate of thick peanut butter noddles that will stick to your taste buds after every bite!
