    This place is 100% for tourists. Food is mediocre, can get much better elsewhere! Sorry to say bc it's an NYC establishment.

    Pork bun! Pork bun!!

    Amazing dim sum.

    This place is so americanized they expect you to leave a 15% tip and complain when you don't.

    Thoroughly reviewed spot. Good prices and great buns/dumplings. The tea here (obviously) is fantastic. Note: no booze

    The fried dough and pork buns made me see the light of God.

    Chinatowns OG dim sum parlor is heavy on fried offerings. Not exactly a culinary destination but the environment is shabby chic and the food is passable.

    Go to Golden Unicorn or Pings Seafood restaurant. Not sure how this place got rated #1 in NY Timeout. Raw meat and hair in food. Way over priced and food that was cooked ok was only mediocre at best.

    Salt and pepper spare ribs, Chinese broccoli, EVERYTHING.

    House dumplings are great. Pork buns are huge. Shrimp and pea dumplings are something else - in a good way.

    Emma H · August 25
  • Alex H.

    It's a cool, "old New York" institution and the food is pretty tasty (salt and pepper shrimp! Heads on) But if you're looking for a DIM SUM experience with carts, this is not your place.

    Alex Hennessey · August 23
  • Aaron B.

    Really amazing dumplings. I will say though, if you can't get in here go to the hidden dumpling gem called 456 Shanghai Cuisine. They have fantastic food too.

    I recently had a bad experience wherein our waiter asked us to leave not one minute after paying the bill because "there are customers waiting"... all the while there were empty tables.

  • Robin C.

    Heard the pork buns were good. We had dim sum and it's all amazing. Soup dumplings are great, turnip pancakes, all great

    Dom sum was hit or miss

    Patrick Baskin · July 21
  • Ashley R.

    Pork bun, pan fried dumpling and scallion pancakes are not to be missed. Be prepared to wait

    Dimsum is mediocre. Very Americanized.

    Dim sum!!!!!!!

    Ridiculously delish, go dumpling crazy with an order of Chinese broccoli

  • Joh

    Definitely try the house special dumplings.

  • Catherine P.

    Love the old-school atmosphere & the dim sum here is bomb.

  • Keahi C.

    I can't believe this got 8.9 stars . I got five dishes. Not only had the prices doubled (that would be ok if the food was good) but the food sucked. The pork Sui Mai had slivers of Bone in them.

  • Rebecca W.

    Best dim sum in NYC

    Rebecca W · June 19
  • Thomas M.

    More expensive than the other dim sum places in the area but not that much different in quality. You order off a checklist of items, but i personally prefer the carts.

    Thomas Mo · June 14
  • Adaora O.

    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!

    Adaora Oputa · June 14
  • Mark M.

    The original egg rolls are the best I've ever had. The pork buns are also a must.

    Mark Munro · June 12
  • Cheryl C.

    Amazing! Order anything but be sure to get an order of almond cookies when you are done.

    Cheryl Clements · June 12
  • Tyler L.

    More authentic than some of the dumpling shops in Hong Kong, this 1920s Hong Kong style diner is among the best at what they do, which is dumplings. You order by penciling in your order. Cash and Amex

    Tyler Lund · June 3
  • Tom M.

    A must place! You will not be disappointed

  • What's Good Here

    Mediocre dim sum for hipsters in a fun, retro setting. Pleasant service staff.

  • Alex R.

    Shrimp and snow pea dumplings are excellent. Pork bun is great too--real chunks of pork, not mystery meat.

    Alex Ravenel · May 24
  • Mish and Rob

    Skip all the rice and fried stuff, and stick with the AMAZING pork buns, sticky rice in lotus leaves, and dumplings.

    Mish and Rob · May 17
  • Jin Y.

    all of their dim sum is authentic and delicious, and their tea is good too

    Tourist heaven. Basically filled with people who don't know what good dim sum is. Food and atmosphere was very poor. Not a true/great dim sum experience. Pass.

    Ashley Specht · April 20
  • Steve C.

    This place is for (and full of) timid white people. No push carts, jacked prices, tiny portions, weak food qual. No need for me to come back

    Steve Coleman · April 18
  • Lisa H.

    All the dumplings are so yum!!!

    Lisa Han · April 5
  • Amanda W.

    Delicious yum cha spot. Favs are the egg rolls, snow pea & shrimp dumplings ... all the dumplings are good actually:)

  • Danwen

    Come here for the charm of Chinatowns oldest dim sum parlor. Food doesn't necessarily standout but still a cheap meal any time of day.

    Danwen · March 23
  • Lindsey H.

    The fried and steamed dim sum samplers were terrific. Great steamed pork buns too. Hard for me to get past the B restaurant rating though!

    Lindsey Hogan · March 18
  • Joy T.

    So yummy! Prepare to wait for a table, but well worth the wait.

    Joy Tenenberg · March 8
  • Steff H.

    Pretty good, a bit of a wait. Good to experience but wasn't a fan of the veggie dumplings

    Steff Hind · March 7
  • Sasha S.

    My favorites are the sticky rice with Chinese sausages and the steamed shrimp shumai

    Sasha Sherman · February 26
  • Mike M.

    Luckily the food is as good as advertised and makes up for the really, unfortunately bad service. Staff does not look like they mind, as the line was out the door on a Sunday night.

    Mike McBryan · February 24
  • Luke

    Old school Nyc charm and tasty dim sum. Always order the greens

    Luke · February 23
  • Darshy N.

    Made to order: Shrimp and snow pea leaf and taro dumplings. Whoa.

    Darshy N · February 23
  • Ben

    Get one of everything.
