Truly an adventure to find but well worth it and easily achievable with modern technology. Traditional vs. commercial, which I prefer but would likely be happy at either. Reminded me of some of the better small storefronts in SF. Soup Dumplings were worthy. All food...More

Really enjoyed a good selection of dumplings. Portions large. The vegetables cooked wonderfully. Specialty teas great. Go and enjoy

I really wanted to love this place. We got the dumplings - very bready, just okay, the pork and soup dim sum - which was VERY good! and the egg rolls which were very strange. They don't resemble egg rolls at all, they are a...More

We stopped here for dim sum but was skeptical because you order the dishes and other places that did that brought all out at the same time and they were cold by the time we got to them. Not this place. They brought out our...More

Stopped in on a very rainy day and glad we did. Easy to read menu, great stuff to share. Only dish that wasn't super was the fried rice. I would make this place a regular hangout if I lived in the city.

It's the oldest dim sum restaurant in New York's Chinatown. Been going there off and on for about 50 years and it never fails to please.

Based on other trip advisor reviews, I expected this restaurant to be much better than it actually was. When we arrived on Tuesday around noon, the restaurant was not very crowded, so we were able to get a table right away. I thought the food...More

The dim sum is pretty bad......oily paper thin scallion pancakes, tasteless dumplings and unseasoned filled dishes. Atmosphere is like an old luncheonette in the sixties. Very overpriced and they even charge for a cup of tea! Waiters super quick and charming but the quality is...More

Success has been good for Nom Wah Tea Parlor, although at times that same success has compromised to it's (at one time) extraordinarily fresh dim sum. We consider ourselves "regulars" here, so when we visited yesterday for a Mother's Day Brunch, we were disappointed when...More

the system for ordering a meal is simple, well thought out and is very efficient. The dim sum and steamed buns were the best I have ever had.

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

Going to go for the first time. Only going with one other person. Would 3 small plates be appropriate? Thinking a rice roll, soup dumpling and stuffed eggplant. What would your recommendations or top 3 be?

We were not disappointed with any of the dim sum we had, but be sure to have the OG Egg Rolls. They're a must have!
You mention that the toilets were old, did they appear to be clean?
