I wanted to introduce my fiancée to proper Chinese staple food since I have lives in the golden country. We ordered the assorted dim sum platter and the general Taos chicken - neither I or my fiancée was disappointed. It's been a long time since I ate real Chinese food and it was a relief to finally get some. The... More

This was my go-to place for a couple of decades for bringing out of towners for dim sum. It wasn't too big, the dim sum was decent, there were always local families there, and it wasn't crazy-packed. After this weekend's experience, I will be trying new places. I have never been charged for tea at any Chinese restaurant in NY... More

I had dinner here to either celebrate someone's birthday or one of the holiday a while ago. I'm not sure about the food now but it wasn't spectacular or above average in my opinion. I never went back. Like I said, the price is very reasonable if you're on a tight budget. It's still better to eat here than fast... More

This was my first (and certainly not my last) experience of 'proper' Chinese food i.e. without Western influence. We ordered a huge array of dim sum - some delicious, some questionable - and had a great time in the process. The bill with outrageously low, and the staff super friendly.

We called in at 3.45pm and were told if we ordered quickly we could have lunch prices. Food was nice for the price. We has a few extras from the dim sum cart which we enjoyed and got the children to try. The lady waitress was very friendly. Good filling lunch for $50 for four

With an A grade in the window and not much time for a business lunch, we popped into this "yet another" Mott Street venue with food and service no worse than average but also certainly no better. We ordered a mix of dim sum off the cart as well as menu items. Nothing memorable. Just another lunch at a bearable... More

Have been going to this Chinese restaurant for over 25 years whenever we can make it back to NY to see family. On our last trip with the kids we were surprised to see the place was more than half empty at 12:30 for Feb Sat dim sum! That was a first for us since we've always had to wait... More

Food was adequate but bland flavour. Crispy duck was NOT crispy. Rice was almost cold. Table very small for three. Plates a bit grimy. A small tip was left. Manager came and demanded 15%. If they want a service charge they should add it to the menu. I would avoid it,

I understand the extreme comments that are already posted. You feel like a foreigner in the restaurant and are also a bit treated like one. But if you accept that, you can enjoy it better. I went in for crispy duck. The first waiter said that it would be too much for me (half a duck @ $35), and proposed... More

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.
