Mandarin Court Mott Street

We stopped by for lunch for their advertised lunch special of 4 lunch dishes and 3 orders of dim sum for $26.99. Seemed like a good deal. Portions were small but tasty. Dim sum was sitting on one of those steamer carts, but were not bad. Servers pushed hard to order additional items, but we... read more

We were looking for a good Chinese place to eat just a half Peking Duck. That seemed to be a problem for several restaurants in the street. We asked the Chinese people who were waiting 20 minutes to be seated why they were waiting for such a long time. 'you will find out inside' they replied. And we did! The... More

Went to china town with high expectations and this has to be some of the worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. My sister ordered crab noodles which took forever and had no flavour. When the waitress cleared our plates she commented on the full plate of noodles and when my sister explained she didn't eat them because they weren't... More

If only we had paid heed to the words on the back of the toilet door "Worst food ever" - we would not have set foot in here. We are a family of 5 from England and 2 of us are not passionate about Chinese (we prefer Indian but don't find decent Indian restaurants in the US). This was horrific... More

We stopped here on the recommendation of our tour guide from Real New York tours. He was right. Great dim sum. Even though it was at the end of the lunch rush and the cart did not have all of the items they were quick to let us order whatever we wanted from the menu. Everything was tasty and very... More

If you want the true Dim Sum NYC locals experience, this is the place to be! The dimsum menu is great, but it is not going to be a restaurant that will slow its pace for tourists. However, for anyone really wanting a true fast-paced downtown NYC chinatown dim sum meal, come here! The cheap prices are great and very... More

The food here is fine, but there are a few problems. First, the bathrooms are down a narrow flight of stairs and are not pleasant. Next, the wait staff can be clueless or rude. Worst for me is the consistent bait and switch pricing problem. The menu posted in the window advertises a $2 dim sum special. Don't expect to... More

most dim sum restaurants are impersonal, crowded and noisy. True, we went early, but the service of a lady waitress was so pleasant, we were taken aback! The food was excellent, also. They have dim sum and an extensive menu also.

We enjoyed our meal of dumplings and noodles but our duck was room temperature. Next time I need to check TA closer. The resturant's full name is Golden Mandarin Court Resturants. My bad😕. OH! And know this, the service charge ( tip) was already added to the bill or at least to ours.

Surely you can't go wrong on Mott St in Chinatown - oh yes you can. Cold dim sum. We weren't given full choice off the main menu - very strongly steered by the boss - very difficult to understand what was being said - main courses drifted out one at a time, and we had to wait a considerable time...

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.
