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.

CONSISTENCY is a big problem with this place The first time, we had such a good experience with the seafood that we decided to come back two days later. To much of our surprise the perfect experience we had the first time turned itself into a mediocre experience considering we had ordered almost the same things: the fish casserole that... More

Visited here after reading a good on line review. To keep things simple ordered a set meal for two. Greasy won tons followed by flavourless soup. Duck and bok choi arrived before we were half way through the soup. Duck looked good but under the skin was just a pile of bones. No one asked us how our meal was.... More

I found this great place at Mott St. It's a must go on week days as they have heavy discount. It's yummy and best of all cheaper then many other places around.

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.
