This is a place where you can eat proper dim sum outside of Hong Kong. The food tasted above our expectation. The atmosphere is also very authentic, people talking loud, waitress pushing the cart with different dishes. Dishes clinking sounds from people trying to clear...More

The 4 of us came early on Sunday in an effort to beat the crowd. We succeeded... somewhat. While others we knew came later and ended up waiting over 1.5 hours, our wait was "only" 45 minutes. There was a good selection of Dim Sum,...More

I can't say there are many outstanding dim sum places in Manhattan Chinatown. However, Golden Unicorn isn't bad and can serve as a good venue to satisfy a dim sum craving. The options are decent, but make sure to check to see if the items...More

Classic dim sum restaurant but hold on to your order sheet! They will plop down plates quickly and stamp your sheet before you can decline. Even when you refuse they will drop, stamp and run before you have a chance to argue. Dumplings were good,...More

This place is terrible both on its food and service: the food is served lukewarm and not fresh, the servers are not only inattentive but also rude, and the manager/maitr d' is slow and ignorant. If I could, I would rate this place ZERO star....More

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
