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

Golden Unicorn is officially my favorite Dim Sum restaurant in New York City. You are greeted on the first floor at the East Broadway entrance and sent up in an elevator to a charming dining room complete with white tablecloths and gold chair covers. The...More

We went on a Saturday and it was crowded with locals. Good sign. We arrived late though (around 1:30pm) and there was not much left. Nevertheless, we managed to have the rice enveloped in leaves ( do not miss it) and almost all the shrimp...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

I love coming to the Golden Unicorn but a word of advice to all reader, go early around 11:30am-12:00pm. That is when the food is the freshest. I love the constant carts that come around and the food is very reasonable. Be careful for the...More

Chinatown
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
