Adaora O.Adaora Oputa: All the dim sum here is really really good! Great idea to order a bunch of dishes and share - they generally come in portions of 4, so ideal for 4 people!

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.

Ami H.Ami H.: Gone here for 20 years and it's still good times. The dumplings are well made and yum, but for sure don't miss the tasty seafood and offal offerings. Chandeliers make it all so classy-like.

Eric J.Eric J: 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.

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

An X.An Xiao: My favorite dim sum spot in Chinatown. Save room for the seafood options (duh), especially the shrimp dishes.

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.

Jeffrey K.Jeffrey Kao: Best quality of dim sum in this city by far. Try the pork buns for a combination of sweet and savory.

Justin O.Justin Ordoveza: They have instant service at the bar, it's the same food but you stand. The bar is best if your by yourself or for two people. The dim sum is small compared to other places but great quality.

Bobbie M.Bobbie McLellan: Bbq pork buns and sticky rice in lotus leaf were top notch and totally worth the visit. The rest of the items were surprisingly sub par compared to good dim sum restaurants.

Nadia P.Nadia P: Vegetarian Dim sum is delicious to start with. dumplings have really tender skins. Finish with the chocolate orange...not too sweet chocolate mousse balanced by a blood orange sorbet

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!

Caroline D.Caroline Deng: 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.

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.
