Finding a good place where to have DimSum in chinatown is difficult! that's why I only have a few selected places where I enjoy to go. Golden Unicorn is one of them. The restaurant is clean and organized and there's always a lot of carts coming all the time. My recommendation is coming early (about 11 am) in order to... More

After a twenty minute wait (we were promised 10), we were seated to watch them set up for a wedding. There were only about 10 choices of dishes, and after about 1/2 hour, the carts stopped coming completely.??? Everybody be damned..not even busy it was between lunch and dinner. The meat patty showed up dressed with a long hair on... More

Visiting NYC from London for the first time we thought we must compare it's china town with ours. First mistake, this restaurant. With the accolades this place has received we thought it must have good standard western chinese food but we were wrong. We ordered what we thought was duck pancakes (our mistake but we weren't corrected!) to start, which... More

This has to be the one of the best dimsum in NYC. Consistently good, this place is usually packed on weekends. If you get there after noon, chances are you will have to wait a bit,but it is worth it.

We attended a pre-wedding party. About 60 guests. Service was very good and surprisingly very good food (and heaps of it).

This is a staple dimsum restaurant - while it won't blow your mind, it is probably one of the more consistently solid places to go in Manhattan. Just be sure to try other dishes besides the standard dumplings - go with a friend who knows what's good.

The Dim Sum at this Chinatown restaurant is very good, but if you are looking for chicken options you will need to order off the menu. The waiter's English was not very good. One person in our party asked for Orange Chicken. The waiter didn't understand, brought a menu, and said "orange chicken" after the person pointed it to it... More

Have been dining here for many years. The best Dim Sum in NYC. Fresh food and best selection. Outstanding wait staff.

We were completely disappointed with our experience here. Bad food, along with poor service, will not bring us back. For more pictures/commentary, check out www.gustatori.com.

Their Dim Sum(s) are very delicious and at a fair price, location is just around the corner of the Lincoln Building on Bowery and East Broadway. Their Beef Chow Ho Fun and Singapore Chow Mei Fun are also very yummy. If you are traveling to Manhattan, why not give it a shot, it will be worth it.
