    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

    Famous dim sum. Slightly sweet. Loved the pork buns, fried dumplings and French toast. Didn't like the parsnip cake...too fishy

    Very much recommended place for dim sum. Just prepare on waiting 3h for your table.

    Really liked the chicken feet, har gow, and pork buns. Would I wait in line for any of those? No. NYC has a ton of just as good or better dim sum.

    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).

    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.

    Put your name down on the wait list and go shopping! Pork buns are SO delicious. Haven't tasted anything like it before. Everything else is very good and clean eating. Get a milk tea!

    Great place to try once, considering the wait time is insane enough. Order everything: pork buns, anything with shrimp and the sweet potato cream for dessert! Black lychee tea is heaven.

    Longgggggg lines = 3 to 4 hours wait. Poor management and communication right now. Stay away until things settles.

    Stumbled upon the line ~4:30pm and was seated immediately upon the 5pm opening. Enjoyed the BBQ pork buns, congee, sticky rice, shrimp dumplings, and shrimp/pork sui mai. Skip the blanched vegetables.

    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.

    The trick is definitely to come on the earlier side - we went on a Wednesday around 6 to put our names in and were seated by 6:30. Also, the pork buns are a must!

    3 hour wait is the downfall but overall Really great dim sum! Everything is cooked just right! The BBQ buns are so tasty! And the sticky rice wrapped in tea leaf.

    Pork buns and steamed shrimp dumplings are worth the wait but plan accordingly: we got in line at 9:30am, they took our names at 10:15am and we were seated at 11:45am.

    No wait on a weekday for lunch at this Michilin Star chain from Hong Kong. Great steamed rolls, siu mai, and pork buns!

    BBQ pork buns and congee were so good! Was worried about lines, but waited only about 15 minutes before being seated during rush hour.

    It's good but I don't get the hype. We literally ordered everything on the menu but the rice dishes. And if I had to recommend one thing that was exceptional, it'd be the roast pork buns.

    Standing table is your best bet, otherwise, put your name down and go to milk and hops nearby for a beer or two. Pork buns are unique, everything else is solid.
  • IrmaZandl T.
    Hours long wait but if dining solo or 2 ppl you can eat standing up by the kitchen. The pork buns are killer!!!!

    French toast with custard is unique and delicious for dessert. It's the same filling in the cantonese classic steam custard buns (aka nai wong bao)

    Pork buns are delicious-a little flakier than it is traditionally. Pork siu mai & shrimp dumplings are also good. Other things were only ok. Overall I'd say if the wait is long it's not worth waiting

    Much needed good dim sum place (most only average) in Manhattan! French toast with custard, steamed pork spare rib, sticky rice, sweet pumpkin cream with sago.

    We got more food than we could even finish for two people and bill was only $32! So good

    Good not great. Over hyped. Not worth 3+ hour wait, although I do like their text message-base line system. Similar to other locations, the pork buns are a stand out. My fav was their custard toast.

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

    If the wait is too long for you, improvise and hop on an empty spot at the bar. Standing dim sum will soon become a hot trend.

    Good, not great, not worth the 3 hour wait. Grab a solo spot at the stand up bar if you must try the food, but don't stand in line for 3 hrs. The food isn't any better than any of NYC's OG spots.

    Pork buns and French toast custard are the best. Expect a wait.

    Standing counter for lunch is your best bet if you don't want to wait 4+ hours.

    Line starts at 8:30am and 3:30pm, be prepared. But the food is worth the wait! Highly recommend: rice rolls (freshly made), chicken in lotus leaves, pork chops, and the most famous chashu bun!

    Pretty good dim sum however you can get much better value and quality in Chinatown if you know where to look.

    We waited for only 45 minutes on a Friday night. Food is great, particularly the pork bun

    There are 24 items on the menu; we ordered one-third of them. All eight dishes were subpar and nothing was worth reordering. (Go to Dim Sum Go Go in Chinatown instead.)

    Not worth waiting more than 30 minutes. Put your name down for the counter area if you have a party of 3 or less to be seated more quickly.

    You only need the pork buns. The wait is not worth it. Get them to go.

    One of the better dim sum places if you get here by 9 to line up.

    Same quality as HK. Show up by yourself and eat at the standing bar

    Overhyped; the quality of the dim sum is not noticeably better than what you can get at other dim sum restaurants. Prices are cheap but would not wait more than 30 minutes for this.

    Honestly the food is comparable to the likes of Jing Fong in Chinatown, but with a three hour long wait instead...

    This cartless NYC dim sum is a letdown! Altho' cheap & freshly-made all day & BBQ Pork Bun (like "Bolau Cha Siu Bao") & Mango Slushee shine, THW has mostly traditional dim sum & not worth 1.5 hr-wait!
