This place isn’t fancy, but the food is very good. The have a great tea list, a decent beer list and a crappy wine list. It’s also cash only, which is kind of a pain. We enjoyed the scallion pancakes, the egg fried rice, the...More

Great service, good flavours hot and fresh. Options for vegetarians who eat fish/seafood. Best steamed pork buns we have had. Living in BC we have numerous restaurants to choose from for dim sum and the Nom Wah in New York is an excellent choice.

Low quality. Not fresh at all. Everything reheated. Friendly waiters though. We wish we had decided for another dim sum restaurant.

Came here on a Sunday & was seated immediately. The restaurant has an old school feel to it. You can tell that there was so much history there. They were very busy but the service was consistent, fast & friendly. The dim sum was amazing....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

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!
