Good seafood!

There were 3 of us. We ordered one entree which was a mixture of seafood in a basket. My wife ordered bok choy. We split everything and there was plenty of food. We ate in the basement level of the restaurant. The food was good. Nothing exceptional. I would probably return.

Stopped here b/c it said you could order your dim sum off the menu which we thought would give us more variety and also have it fresh and hot. Well maybe the variety was correct but the fresh and hot didn't happen. We had one choice come out hot, fried tofu, which was very good but they brought the rest... More

Our trip here was totally worth the walk to China Town. I have never had fried rice like it, it tasted so fresh and nice. The servers were extremely friendly and helpful. We had an early dinner so the place was close to being empty. I just could not fault the place. Amazing!

12 noon Sunday many in NY have the same idea--dim sum in Chinatown. So the wait at Jing Fong promised to be 40 minutes and I thought "hmm a similar place next door could do well" and voila there was Oriental Garden. To save waiting time, I indicated that we were very open to being seated at a shared table--this... More

Being of Asian descent, I've had my share of delicious, top-notch dim sum in my time (Great Eastern SF) ... This was not one of them. First off, the restaurant sat us Benihana style with another family, the first time I've ever experienced this style of dining with dim sum. But I'm not complaining. The food was simply sub par....

My family has been coming here for nearly 40 years and despite some inconsistency, the last three meals we have had here have been nothing short of outstanding. If you want a high quality Cantonese meal of Hong Kong quality, this comes close. If you can order some of the special dishes, you won't be disappointed. Squab stuffed with glutinous... More

We had dinner at Oriental Garden and ordered some Dim Sum, which were all good and tasty. But what impressed me the most was the half Peking duck at $30. It might be pricey compared to other places in Chinatown. But the duck was delicious and the steamed Bao buns it was served with were really good and fluffy. I've... More

We were recommended to this dim sum favorite via trip advisor and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed a Sunday dim sum brunch and they were happy to make any of the dim sum items on the menu. Only accepts cash and Amex. traditional Chinese ambiance fitting for China Town!

We went to Chinatown to go to Jing Fong, but it was closed for private party. Therefore we decided to stay on the nearby same street Oriental Garden. Great food, best springroll I ever eat. We will definitely be back on our next visit to NYC.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
