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

    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!

    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).

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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)

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

    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.

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

    The BBQ pork bun is good, but other items don't really live up to the hype.

    Dim sum from Hong Kong! The world's least expensive restaurant to earn a Michelin star!

    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.

    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.
