I don't know why this spot has so many mixed reviews on social media. It's always packed with locals, and the reason is because it's great. It's a much broader selection that Dim Sum A Go Go--including fried taro, without which I don't feel a Dim Sum meal is complete. Check it out, you'll like it.

We are big fans of the dim sum and prices at 88 Palace. Located under the Manhattan bridge in Chinatown/LES it can be a little difficult to find, but the food is worth it. The pork baozi and jiaozi are excellent, as is the Shumai and various other dumplings. The taro balls are very nice as well. The prices are unbeatable, and it's nice to sit and watch the carts go by. The big disappoinment with this place is the fact that almost no one speaks/understands English, and they don't particularly care to. A friend of mine has allergies to certain food, and we asked the server specifically if that was in the dumpling - she didn't understand and was trying to give it to us anyway - We got a supervisor involved who seemed to understand, assured us the dish was safe for my friend and gave it to us. While eating it we discovered the very item to which he's allergic! Only when we got the manager involved did he realize the potential danger of this lack of oversight. If you can eat anything you want - enjoy. If you have dietary restrictions - eat at your own risk!
