The preponderance of local Chinese seniors is probably a good indication of the quality and authenticity of the food here. Dim sum carts make constant runs between tables, and there are several other menu options, including excellence fun. Non-Chinese speakers are at a slight disadvantage when it comes to dibs on the dim sum, and the large round tables that... More

This restaurant just south of the Manhattan Bridge is in the heart of China Town, opposite the statue of Confucius. Our friends where fluent in Chinese so they did the majority of the ordering but all the Dim Sum choices where good and so were the selections from the regular menu. I was completely satiated as were the rest of... More

We were there with a group of 8, three of whom are Chinese so we got some good advice re ordering and had a lot of dishes to share. We got there @ 11. By one it was packed with people waiting outside. Its right in the heart of Chinatown and a great experience.

We had dinner here one night and were not impressed. The service and food was OK. They did not seem to be interested in the customers and never checked on how we were doing. The food was also just OK and the portions were small for the price. Have to say there are a lot of other restaurants in the... More

We went to the Nice Restaurant on East Broadway, until it closed. Had the time of my life and went twice, while in New York.

CHATHAM SQUARE RESTAURANT is a wonderful restaurant. The restaurant is large and spacious. The service is excellent and the food is fresh and delicious. Unlike many of the restaurants in Chinatown, their Dim Sum is made to order and ALWAYS fresh. When you sit down the waiter gives you an order form and a menu. After selecting the items you... More

Traditional dim sum restaurant. Lunch was about 5 to 8 dollars person for moderate eaters. Good variety of small plates delivery for diners choice by roving food carts. Often engaged at night for wedding receptions and is therefore closed to the public. Pink tablecoths and decor

If you are looking for authentic dim sum for a Saturday or Sunday lunch, your quest is over: just head to Chatham's at the end of Bowery with a huge appetite. Servers push carts laden with every imaginable variety of dim sum - both savory and sweet. The only downside is that you want to order everything. Yesterday 6 of... More

Go with the biggest groupnyou can muster, as this will enable you to try a variety of dishes. There were only two of us, and we ordered far more than we could eat. Everything was well-cooked, the sauces complementing the meat and veg without drowning them. The veg were cooked but crunchy. Pleasant service.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood 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.
