Delicous experience

Dim sum on push carts is one of my favorites!! I love that you can see the food before getting it so you can say yes or no to the person offering. It seemed like there were mostly dumplings offered but there is a menu on the table and you can supplement with other things if you don't see it... read more

Ended there 'cause we would have had to wait 45 mins for a table at Jing Fong and loved it. It is much smaller but the dumplings are so much nicer and the service is better (you still have the language barrier but they do try hard to make you understand how it all works and in the end you... More

As a native Taiwanese, I have been living New york for almost 5 years. Oriental Garden is definitely one of the best place for dim sum. I only come for dim sum during the lunch time. Their dim sum is fresh and delicious! My friends and I really like it. However, here are some tips that hopefully would help you... More

First, we did not totally eat dinner here. We were seated immediately, given tea and pickled vegetables while we looked at the menu. As we reviewed the menu, most of the dishes were $15 or higher. In addition, the noodle dishes were over $20. We were there for over 10 minutes and no one came to ask us whether we... More

If you're not obsessed with the latest Asian food fads and just want to experience the freshest of ingredients, especially seafood, simply and beautifully prepared, then Oriental Garden is the place for you. Scallops, shrimp, Canadian lobsters, razor clams, oysters and all sorts of crab and fish on and off the menu are handled so deftly that you may think... More

I have enough duck sauce and hot mustard packets in my apartment that I could start a company that sells them. I've often gone to the lengths of ordering different items from different spots simultaneously to put together what is my perfect zen of a meal. One of the biggest mysteries for me is how Oriental Garden was never on... More

I will start this review with this is the best Chinese food I have had, anywhere in the world. We shared the chicken and corn soup which came in a huge bowl. It was a great starter especially when it was so cold outside. We had sesame chicken and steak with vegetables accompanied by the fried rice. All dishes were... More

Most places along the main arteries of Chinatown had waiting lists, and just a few metres away this (and other restaurants) had available tables, quick service, reasonably big servings and good prices. Excellent soups after a cold morning visiting Lower Manahttan.

We went for dim sum. There was a significant language barrier and the female server there was down right mean. She yelled and made no attempt to explain which food she was serving. The few dumplings we ate were very gooey like they had been sitting out for a while. I'm sure there are better places in Chinatown.

We enjoyed the food, but our main dishes were served literally 4 minutes after our piping hot soup arrived. The dim sum selection was very tasty. Next time, we'll get take out next door.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
