This large restaurant is often packed around mid-day with locals. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table shortly after noon on a Saturday. The dim sum was very good, with frequent trolley visits and a wide selection of dishes. The rice noodles were simply he best I have ever had. Do not miss them!

I was looking on Trip Adviser for a spot and a lot of places are just take away places. My dad and I were looking for a restaurant and we walked by this place and it was great. They had so many choices that we ordered too many items. But in order to try a lot of flavors it was... More

We visited a gift shop and one of the workers recommended this restaurant for dim sum. We were not sure how or what to order but after a little time one of the workers helped us. I think that it would have been better experience with more people and someone to help us order. (Only 2 of us) I ordered... More

Terrible experience, food was below average and the staff bordered on being rude! Avoid this place, not worth your time...I really felt as though I was not welcome! Very sad....

I love dim sum-- this place was recommended by a local store owner and was packed with locals. Sounds like winner right---wrong. Very few selections, most of it average at best. I would not choose this place again. The service was not helpful in learning what was in the dishes. Food tended to be oily or dry ( the pot... More

I stumbled upon this place by accident. Saw a good number of locals inside considering it was Wed. at 3pm, so that is always a good sign when you travel. Dim Sum was really good. They do not speak English hardly, so communicating was difficult when we were asking what the different dishes were but that made it fun, quite... More

New Asia has been around for a long long time. It's a Chinatown classic. Dim sum on weekend mornings is one of the main draws. The traditional kind where they push the steam carts around and you pick the food you want. Various reviews point to either "rude" or "unfriendly" wait staff. Yup, they can be rather surly but that's... More

If you don't speak their language, avoid! Staff were in a rush, rude and could not explain any of the dishes. The BBQ pork dish was excellent but the roast duck was really terrible. Trolleys of food just roll around the floor. I can imagine it would have been much better if we knew what was going on!

We came in for a late dim sum lunch - the place was empty and since part of our family had already finished we fitted at the same table. I asked the waiter to bring new plates and chopsticks, finally i had to stand up and bring them myself. We ordered some more food, it did came quick but our... More

A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates.
