    "Fried crispy bean curd was lovely; even more appealing were cubes of tofu dressed with a rich minced-pork sauce, and olives that were vaguely sweet and more fruity than briny." - NYT 12/12/2012

    Serves excellent Cantonese-style seafood dishes, but the off-the-cart dim sum is really the star of the show here. Read more

    As the name implies, this venerable Mott Street restaurant serves excellent Cantonese-style seafood dishes, but the off-the-cart dim sum is really the star of the show here. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Definitely don't come here for dim sum if you don't like sharing tables with at least 2,3 groups of strangers. 😒

    On weekday it's $2 for whatever dim sum I think. We went on weekend, had plenty of food, and only spent $7!

    For super fresh dim sum, get here before noon. But even if you happen to stumble out of bed a little later the dim sum is still some of the best in town (and inexpensive too!)

    dim sum totally lived up to the hype. the pork bun was insanely buttery, had the texture of a croissant. and restaurant was packed with chinese immigrants- always a good sign.

    The dim-sum push-cart servers are happy to direct the carts you want your way if you ask.

    Their dim sum special is Mon to Fri. Don't forget their twin lobsters special for dinner. They have more tea leaves choice than other dim sum restaurants.

    If you are looking for real authentic chinese food you have come to the right place. The pan fried noodles and crispy half chicken are awesome.

    Get the braised tripe-Royal Seafood produces one of the city's best renditions, served w/ a bright red chile oil that colors the lips and opens up the sinuses. The stomach strips are chewy and tender.
