Visited this place with my friends for dimsum on a weekend. The 2-storey restaurant gets filled really quickly and the queue can get very long after 11am. Try to arrive early if you wish to snag a seat before the lunch crowd. The restaurant retains...More

Please don't come here expecting Americanized Chinese food. This is old school Cantonese Dim Sum, come in expecting to order off the carts, pushed around by ladies who speak very limited English. Best to do your research ahead of time so you're not left wondering...More

There are seemingly thousands of restaurants to eat at in Chinatown. I'm a fan of Dim Sum and really like Hong Kong style (served at the table not a menu) so I sought out the Golden Unicorn. While it is a bit difficult since the...More

It's hard to find good dim sum in NYC. We were told to try the tis restaurant for lunch. We had to wait downstairs for 10 minutes so they could find a table for two, which is rare to find in Dim Sum restaurants. However,...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
