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.
  • 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]
  • Support this place. Iconic. Classic. Too many old NYC establishments have been closing. Please don't let this be next.
  • New York City's oldest and most venerated dim sum parlor given new life, home to some of the best rice rolls in Chinatown.
  • "It's not dim sum until you spill soup dumpling all over yourself." - Ancient Chinese proverb
  • This place is for white people.
  • Eat this: shrimp & snow pea leaf dumplings, cilantro & scallion rice roll, shrimp & bacon roll, roast pork pun, chinese broccoli w/ oyster sauce, Shanghainese soup dumplings, + shrimp & egg fried rice
  • 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.
  • Did NOT honor the check-in special of one free pot of tea on a holiday (MLK day). No where does it exclude holidays on the special. REALLY?! Can't even give a free pot of TEA?! Only says M-F.
