Came here for dim sum at night & felt the fillings to be a bit chewy/gristly...not the most care taken. I definitely wouldn't return - I'd go to Go Go well before I'd come back.

If you want to go back to the 50s or 60s scenery in Chinatown, this is the place to eat. Dim sum is usually served from morning to afternoon but this restaurant has fresh dim sum all day. This is my second time there and the food is very consistent. What I like is about this place is it's away... More

This place just did not work for our family of four. As we walked in, the waiter we ended up with was outside smoking and it went downhill from there. We went with a variety of dim sum items and didn't like any of them. We couldn't wait to get the check and get out. We ended up at a... More

My nephews were visiting for Easter week and we all were in the mood for Dim Sum. Based on other reviews, we decided to try Red Egg knowing it wasn't going to be the typical push cart experience. We were seated right away and the service was pretty good overall. We were served water and tea quickly. We received a... More

Chinese friends brought me here today for lunch. we ordered only dim sum ( there are no carts but you mark a menu with a pencil to order) I generally don't like this kind of dim sum because I love the crazy carts. But- each dish of different dim sum was wonderful. The atmosphere is lovely because the room mainly... More

We came here for the Happy Hour and it was amazing. The portions were huge and we loved that they had "dim sum" for happy hour. We were able to try a lot of different stuff. Environment was just perfect, not too crazy and wasn't too quiet.

I found this restaurant on a top list of dim sum in NYC and had high hopes. The whole meal was disappointing and the service was challenging. Just getting soy sauce and hot chili was an ordeal. The dim sum is more expensive than most places in the area and a lot of it was inedible. We ordered the garlic... More

After watching our son play college basketball in Brooklyn we took our younger children and niece and nephew across the Manhattan bridge into the "big City". We had planned to go to Joe Shanghai's and to the candy store at the end of Pell street but when we arrived there line was out the door and the wait looked so... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night, the day after the Chinese New Year. The greeter was friendly, wished us a happy new year and walked us to the table. The atmosphere is pleasant and the aroma of foods made us more hungry. We watched as different dishes were being delivered to the neighboring tables to get an idea of... More
