People tend to check in during these times:
Jalapeño + shrimp dim sum
Get there early
Come early on the weekends for dim sum or be prepared to stand in a cramp, crowded waiting area w/ 50+ others for nearly an hour, though they may tell you "20 minutes." Good enough, but not the best.
The mochi-like peanut-filled dumplings were my favorite; and something I've never had before! 👍👍
Don't stop with just the dim sum. Large platters of seafood, rice, stew, and other dishes I don't know the name of are served all day!
Always worth the wait for weekend dimsum - everything is delicious, fresh, and well-made!
Super authentic Dim Sum! It took a minute to find a waiter who speak English, in this case it's a good problem bc it means it's real.
The egg tarts are to die for. Get 'em!
Great dim sum and friendly staff.
Authentic Dim sum and can order other Chinese dishes from the kitchen. There is a wait but worth it.
Cold Dungeness crab with vinegar, watercress conch soup, steamed scallops with XO sauce vermicelli, bamboo pith pea leaves, braised lamb casserole, crabmeat e-fu noodles, egg pudding tapioca pearls
The pork dumplings
One of my favorite dim sum spots in the city. Consistently fresh and delicious. They also open early.
This is the only dim sum restaurant in NYC that is closest to a HK dim sum restaurant. A lot of dim sum varieties and spacious seating.
Very good dim sum. Best I've had in New York.
Simply a great experience of culture food.
Spicy beef tendon
Bring a Cantonese friend and let them do the ordering. If you are really aggressive walk up to the cart ladies as they come out the kitchen before they do their rounds. Make sure to throw dem 'bows!
Get there early. Ask to waive tea fee.
Beef tendons are good! !!
Food is somewhat expensive and great for groups!
Because i brought my white bf, they added tax to our bill! NOT paying for it. Get it adjusted! Im chinese you fools!
yum! especially enjoyed garlicky fried squid and pork buns.
The gor jing jung (big lotus leaf wrap w/ sticky rice), corn + pumpkin sweet soup, and peanut + coconut covered mochi is the best.
Everything is great, but the egg custard is awesome!
Anthony Bourdain loves the dim sum here ;)
Great dim sum; it's worth the wait! Come here on weekdays to avoid the long lines.
This restaurant produces some of the finest dim sum this city offers. At 2 p.m. pricier fare starts appearing on the carts whirling through the dining room, but over-rice dishes are always cheap.
Don't come during prime time hours... You wait forever. I honestly think its longest I've waited for dimsum -.-
Awesome. For dim sum, get here early (9:30 or earlier).
Best Dim Sum in NYC. Just try whatever looks good
Nothing is bad here. Try everything.
Best time to come is 10:30-11AM to secure a table with 15-20 min wait, so have a early bird buddy arrive to get a ticket number for your group. They roll out the fresh/best dishes for peak hour 12PM~
Calling all fans of crispy fried chicken skin (so…everyone right?). The crispy chicken with dry minced garlic is succulent with some seriously crackling skin!
Expect a long wait on the weekends. This place gets PACKED.
This place is like a club on weekends MADD long wait
Dim Sum and Dinner food is amazing. What more can you ask for? Fresh Dim Sum until 3pm! For Dim Sum, try this pork intestine dish and salt&pepper squid.
Beef tendons are good!
this place has large portions and decent prices! 2 ppl with 8 dishes and the bill was under $30
My favorite dim sum place in all of NYC! Saturday and Sundays get there before 9: 30am to get a seat without a wait! (Free valet parking, too!)
Salt and pepper squid is worth the trip alone!!!
Great variety and consistently tasty dim sum. The shark fin dumpling is where it's at here - have it even though it sounds weird. Trust me, there are way weirder things on the menu.
Please bring someone who knows what they're doing so you're not asking every passing cart lady what everything is.
Great restaurant, clean and pretty with parking garage next door. A+
Amazing Dim Sum. GET EVERYTHING!!
Best dimsum on 8th ave hands down and beatiful aesthetic! Come here for the real brooklyn chinatown experience ;)
dim sum = fun for the entire family
Best dim sum in Brooklyn. Try not to eat your arm off while waiting for a table.
Must order: shrimp dumplings, fried cruller rice crepes and sticky rice.
