Unbelievable Chinese Food

Quite possibly the best Chinese we've ever eaten. The combination fried rice was exceptional, and the dumplings we had were all perfect. A must visit restaurant for NYC.

This is an authentic dim sum experience. Definitely something you must do when going to NYC. Don't mind the brash nature of the hostess. I think it is a cultural thing. I felt like we were in the "Soup Nazi" episode of Seinfeld, but didn't mind. It was humorous. Absolutely do not go up the escalator before you talk to... More

Depending on your expectations, this ambiance is either for you or absolutely not. It's not quaint or cozy. It's just what I experienced in China, large ballroom sized room with red tableclothed tables spotted about. As for the food, I found it authentic and I believe to have a good radar as I lived in Taiwan and travelled in China... More

We went into jing fong after quiet a search. It fulfilled all our expectations. A huge dining place, full of people most of them with Chinese origin (can them go wrong with dim sum?). Lots of food offered by mamas with trolleys. And Chinese beer. Loved it. Recommended!

If you think you've been to large, open restaurants before, you must take the mile high escalator up to Jing Fong and see a room that can seat 800 hungry souls! Because I was there with some friends to see what their menu items were I can't comment on the quality of the dim sum. I can tell you that... More

We braved the crowds on a Sunday afternoon. Walk in, grab your number and then stand on the street until your number is called. Then, partake in the deliciousness. You have to do some searching if you want something specific, but otherwise, very good.

After a 20 minute wait or so (had anticipated this so was prepared, though I think along with many other popular places in the city the establishment could do with some crowd/queue control to avoid unhelpful obstructions outside) our hungry party of five were unleashed up the escalator to a huge dining hall full of chattering diners. We were seated... More

After the long escalator ride you are slapped in the face with a wave of noise, which only adds to the anticipation of what's to come - and that's very very good dim sum. Carts constantly on the move bring wonderful variety of Chinese small dishes. Don't worry about language barrier - just point and enjoy what you're given.

The food kept coming. First the shrimp then the lobster. Around the 4th course I was full but the food was so good. Amazing how the service was maintained with hundreds of patrons. Definitely worth the trip!
