$49 gets you an 8 course Peking Duck Feast! Food was quite good, old world Banquet Hall style Chinatown restaurant you feel like you are on a cruise ship.

Casual, funky decor, busy dim sum restaurant in Chinatown. Inexpensive, and not a long wait....may need to table share. We were seated in the back on the 2nd floor. Whenever the waitresses came by, the had their backs and the back of the cart to us, asked the other couple at the table what they wanted, then walked away. Ordered... More

My wife if HK Chinese. She was desperate for Dim Sum in NYC and Golden Unicorn came highly recommended. It was very good. All the normal stuff, but very well cooked. My wife thought it was good, and that's saying something. Staff were excellent. Don't understand the bad comments about staff.

These people have no respect, no manners and do not know what service is! This was our one big mistake in New York! They can not explain what is on the dishes, they get upset with you for not "understanding". It was 10.20 and they started vacuuming the restaurant. Also around and under our table. I asked them to stop,... More

Not cheap, reasonable, but very special dishes,... More

Invited by a friend to the Golden Unicorn, we found it to be a wonderful experience in Chinese Cuisine. The food was fresh and plentiful with items we had never tasted before. The staff was very friendly and attentive too.

Absolutely amazing food! Lightening fast with pretty good service. What a cool idea for dum sum. We tried a number of things. Shrimp dumplings were the best!

My best friend and I always debate about where to go for dimsum. I typically suggest this place because the food is good, the prices are low, and there is plenty of seating. However this review is based on a private party I had where I rented out an entire floor for several hours. My only issue lies with the... More

This place is as close as you can get to a Cantonese dim sum experience. Different type of foods comes on carts and you pick what you are in the mood for or whatever looks good. They have a wide variety of different dishes too many to mention, this place deserves coming back too. The interior looks truly Chinese. I... More

We ate Dim Sum here and I thought it was pretty clean,good service, friendly, ambiance like others described and food was tasty. Having been to many Dim Sum places it had a few dishes not served in others that was tasty. Above all the food was made fresh for the day. Thus I would come back.
