This staff accommodated me and my family for my mother birthday. They were so flexible, friendly, and efficient. We arrived at 1 pm, and had to leave by 5 pm. We only had two tables, but had a family style dinner during the "dim sum"...hours. They were able to feed us, and too keep the food coming! We haven't been to their Upper West Side branch, yet. We made reservations for this meal.More

Visited the upper west side version of this restaurant. Food was very good but even better was their attention to me and my food allergies. Soy does not sit well with me and they were more than respectful of that dilemma. Explaining foods to avoid...and recommending those that would taste just as good with a white wine sauce alternative. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal with no significant after affects. Hard to find that sort of experience these days.More

During our visit to New York, we was looking forward to trying a meal in Chinatown. Based on reviews this places seemed OK. When we ordered I asked if the chicken was boneless to which they replied yes so I ordered half of the garlic...chicken (which did not look like the photos) and the beef noodles. We my food came out the chicken was on the bone which I thought I could deal with, however the middle of the chicken was filled with blood, this made me physically and luckily I had not had any. I sent this item back and said we are going to leave but will pay for the rest of the meal. The waiters seemed very stand offish when I told them I didnt want this they could not understand why. When we was given the bill the chicken had been voided and then added again I had to ask for it to be removed as they had tried to add it on again without us noticing. I would not recommend going here.More

15 minute wait for 3 of us on a sunday around 2pm. Lots of activity in a huge busy room. Lots of choices. Enjoyed entire experience. Best was lots of food for 3 dim sum and the total cost $51.00. Seemed like great value. Food...was goodMore

This restaurant was on several lists as the best dim sum in NYCs Chinatown. It is so very clearly not. The food was bland. There was a very limited variety. The waitress was very adamant that we try items that we had already declined. We...were not offered water or soy sauce. It was passably clean, but the menus were quite dirty with the pages stuck together.More

A very popular place in Chinatown. The evening 7 of us visited, we had reservations but there were a lot of people waiting. Ride up the escalator to an extremely dining area which was actually divided and only half in use. All food items we...ordered were good to very good. Service was spotty, sometimes difficult to communicate with servers. Bar service was okay but do not expect great cocktails. Stick with wine and simple alcohol beverages. The evening was enjoyable because of the activity in the dining area. Servers carving Peking Duck tableside, constant service of dumplings and all other entrees. We would return, but there are restaurants that have better food and service.More

This is my go to dim sum spot in the heart of Chinatown. Love the multiple levels and large dining space. Came here around 11 Am on a busy Friday. My friends and I ordered the rice creep, har gow, shumai, egg tarts, taro balls,...fried pork balls, spare ribs, fried rice and a bunch of other dishes. Food quality here is common like other dim sum establishments. I just frequent this location because the staff is always attentive and friendly. You can also request items as well so they come out fresh from the kitchen. Chill spot for dim sum especially for large parties as wellMore

If indeed commercial leases are falling, it could be a good time. The places that serve dim sum around here are pedestrian at best. I include Jing Fong in that assessment, a cavernous place that fills up by 11:00 on weekends with a long wait...thereafter for most of the early afternoon. I have had excellent dim sum in Richardson, TX; Arlington, TX; San Francisco; Denver; London; Singapore; Bangkok; Beijing; Shenzhen; and Hong Kong. So I know what it is and that it is doable. Why is it so difficult in the NYC area? We've made the trek from northern Westchester on a weekend day a number of times to Jing Fong, most recently a week ago. We were seated just as it was filling up. We saw the same three carts go by repeatedly, one of which was all deep-fried selections. A number of the standards were never made available. What we did have was not so much creative as making use of less expensive ingredients (e.g. shrimp balls that had a bit more than their souls, but not much more.) Need I say that New York is a great city, with a substantial Asian population, that could certainly support a good, clean restaurant overseen by a chef who might deign to serve top notch dim sum on weekends at least. Chinese food is much more of course, with a huge diversity- just check out Pei Mei's three volumes. We have a number of good Chinese and other Asian cuisine places here. But my dream is a Hong Kong-trained chef discovering the huge opportunity here then seeking backing by some willing entrepreneurs. Jing Fong does not deserve the custom it draws.More

For having eaten a lot of Asian/Chinese food this was just an ok meal. I love dumplings and theirs were mushy and the wrap was too glue-y. The duck was way too fatty, even for a duck! The sesame balls were pretty good as well...as the bean curd dish. The cilantro noodle and its neighbor, the shrimp noodle, were just ok... a wimpy,gel-like dish. Other dishes were just ok, not bad, but definitely not great or excellent. Each entree plate, around $16 - $20, will feed 2-3 people or more if ordering lots of dishes. Big space, lots of tables. Pretty decor. tMore
