Time Out New YorkTime Out New York: 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.

Melody H.Melody Han: 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!

Jason S.Jason Schulweis: 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).

Kathryn C.Kathryn C.: 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

Michael Z.Michael Zhong: 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.

Berk K.Berk Kapicioglu: I had the dim sum. It was ok. Then we ordered duck and we were finally satisfied. Staff doesn't speak English.

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.

Kate Y.Kate Yan: You don't have to pay taxes if you pay in cash.

Emily W.Emily Wilson: 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.

Paul G.Paul Guerzon: 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.

Albert S.Albert Somoza: Finally in NY! Start off with a Smoky Negroni - a twist on a classic cocktail with a Grand Marnier smoke infusion- simply sublime!

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.
