We stopped in for some dim sum before continuing on our huge walking day. Dumplings were very nice, came out quickly and filled a gap. Pork and leek were the tables favourite. Service is a little shabby and the space is limited. Elbow room is...More

This place was recommended for their dumplings, and they were very good. However, the hostess kept trying to wedge us into a tiny space despite it being 3pm and the restaurant half empty. In addition, our waiter was very unfriendly. There was one helpful waiter,...More

No place to find a seat. The service was mediocre. The food was not special. Do not think will try it again.

Big menu, but we only tried some of their dim sum. Their signature dim sum is the meat dumplings, which were delicious. We also liked their duck spring roll. The rest was ok, although the seafood pancakes were a bit boring. Authentic place, I guess,...More

The lines here always made my wife and me try another Chinatown restaurant, but, at 11:30 am one Sunday morning, the place was empty -- but open? "We open 10:30!" And while we've often found service to be poor when a restaurant is nearly empty,...More

Joe's Ginger also has excellent broccoli with garlic sauce, and the BBQ peking duck spring roll is very tasty. The shrimp boil dumplings are also recommended. Attentive service, and food comes out quickly .

After a very long day of walking the city, we appreciated being seated and served quickly. All of the food was fresh, hot and tasty. The appetizer dumpling soup is beyond great. So glad we had soup here.

Should have read the reviews before eating here. Food was okay but the service was awful. Our waiter acted like he was doing us a favor waiting on us...no greeting, no information. Needed an attitude check.

It seems a lot of people reviewing on here have never been to Chinatown. To non-Chinese visitors: this is not your playground. To those complaining about "rude" service, how would you feel if someone came to your establishment and demanded you speak another language than...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
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
