Great Peking Duck

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... read 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 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.

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant for us. The food was wonderful and a little different from what we expected compared to other Chinese restaurants - very tasty. In addition, our waiter was very attentive even though we did not walk in the door until after 9 p.m.

Authentic Cantonese cooking with special herbal soups and fresh seafood--prepare to pay for special cooking and preparations. Fair wine list.

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... 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

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.
