Delicious Dim Sum

While I was at first disappointed that they don't have the carts, it was actually better that they didn't. The dishes were all very fresh and very tasty. The pork and chive dumplings were excellent and the chicken shumai was to die for. The best part is that it is still cheap! The only thing I had... read more

This Chinatown restaurant is unique among Chinese for the variety of items they have on their menu (especially for lunchtime delivery). Even the more authentic ones don't come close to offering such dishes as scrambled eggs with anchovy, Hakka Stewed Pork Belly, steamed spare ribs with bitter melon and for under $10 each at lunchtime, it's a true bargain. Therefore... More

Not a big fan of Chinese food, but it was my partner's birthday and choice for lunch. Not a hectic experience as street dim sum vending can be. Waiters were in suit and ties, atmosphere was relaxing and nicely decorated. I had the Buddahs Delight since I'm a vegetarian. Lots of choices for me which I was happy about. My... More

The food was mostly pretty good (good peking sliders-avoid the triple fried delight). The service is attentive and the location is also good.

We came upon Red Egg by accident, the first time, while we were in ChinaTown, but now we go out of our way to eat there on almost each of our 2 trips a year to NYC. The dumplings are outstanding.

This place was an absolute surprise! A great friend organized a birthday dinner here. Most reviews on red egg are about their dim sum but their dinner is not to be missed. The peking duck, sea bass and pastrami dishes were first rate! Yes!!! I said pastrami. Just trust me and order it. The decor is a total throw back,... More

We felt like dim sum but didn't want to stand in line for ages so we were pleased to find this place that took reservations for Sunday lunch. Good dim sum in a restaurant clearly popular with local Chinese residents. Nice service too, and not too expensive

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
