Foursquare Tips

  • Try the steamed-to-order shrimp-and-snow-pea-leaf dumplings, packed with minced shrimp, flecks of scallions and bright, fresh snow-pea leaves. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Support this place. Iconic. Classic. Too many old NYC establishments have been closing. Please don't let this be next.
  • This 92-year-old Chinatown restaurant serves terrific dim sum in a dining room with old-school charm. This is a great place to go for a cheap and satisfying meal in Chinatown. [Eater 38 Member]
  • New York City's oldest and most venerated dim sum parlor given new life, home to some of the best rice rolls in Chinatown.
  • They have wifi now! Password is the phone number, on the menu.

  • This place is for white people.
  • Pork shumai is the best I've ever had.
  • Affordable dim sum, a picture menu for newbies and they close at 9 at night - what's not to like?
  • Should be Nom Nom Nom Wah!
  • Despite the amount of non-Asians, the food is surprisingly good and authentic! Get the sticky rice in lotus leaves :) (zong zhi)
  • Get the shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings; also the taro dumplings. I'd stay away from the soup dumplings.
  • You must try the original egg roll
  • Offers dim sum all day!
  • Shrimp & snow pea leaf dumplings, soup dumplings, steamed rice roll, scallion pancakes are musts. Avoid the shrimp and bacon!
  • Shrimp and a snow pea shrimp dumplings. Very good dim sum and cool place, but I don't think it's worth an hour wait. Go during off peak times.
  • The oldest dim sum restaurant in the city, and it's still just as good as it was in 1920 (so we hear). The shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings are excellent, as are the soup dumplings.
  • Roast pork buns are a must
  • In the movie Premium Rush (2012), J Gordon-Levitt's character had to make a delivery here while being chased by a corrupt cop. It all ended on Doyers street in front of the Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
