This is one of the most fantastic meals we have had in years! We were there for dinner with family and relatives - 2 tables for our trip and even though we were jet lagged, and would much prefer to sleep, the food was excellent and kept us going. Great selection of meat, seafood, and soup dish. A must for... More

This place always satisfies. Although the dining room is small, it is neat and clean and the food is always hot and tasty. The atmosphere is cozy and perhaps a bit noisy for most as the wait staff tends to be enthusiastic and sometimes even aggressive. But that's to be expected in such a restaurant. White tablecloths are a plus.... More

This is nycs best dim sum and lives up to the hype. Seeating is fast and service is quick. They also offer an alternative menu for those who don't enjoy dim sum. It is a very authentic experience in middle of Chinatown.

Specialized in seafood and fish, they also offer nice vegetarían dishes. We enjoyed stuffed eggplants and peppers. Tofu/beancurd with scallops was excellent, but a bit pricey. Deep fried shrimp wonton were okay. Quite noisy and popular place. Only cash + Amex.

Don't bother. For "all day" dim sum it was pitiful. They only had two or three types of dumplings and apparently it was a huge hassle when we asked for steamed pork buns because the waitress was really rude. We left and went next door to Jing Fong and it was only slightly better. We should have done better research.... More

Crowded but big enough to avoid long queues, the food and informal ambiance justify the short waiting time for a table. You can order from the menu but better sample the offerings from the kitchen that pop up from the kitchen time and again. In spite of the longer wait, It is best to come in at the heart of... More

We settled for this next door restaurant when Jing Fong dim sum was closed for vacation. We were disappointed with the costs of dim sum and slow service. The restaurant seem "nice" with white table cloth but the service was slow, so we only ordered two items of different dim sum. The taro balls that I love and always ordered... More

Visited Oriental Garden based on reviews of ny.eater.com. Excellent Dim Sum and one of the best grilled prawns we have ever eaten. Also rice w/ seafood was very tasty. Recommended, although quite 'loud' and not very cosy.

On a trip to NYC I took my Mom here to introduce her to Dim Sum. And what an experience she got. Since we can't read chinese, the menu with pictures were very helpful. Also got to sit with a gentleman from HK, who could help us along the way (and give us trip on an upcoming trip to HK).... More
