good selection of vegeterian dim sum

Dim Sum Go Go is the place to go when you have a really small group and know what you like. The food is a little long in coming, but it's also made to order - which means that you never have to deal with food that's been sitting on a cart for too long. If you go during a decently busy time, also, the food (as usual) gets even fresher and more delicious! I highly highly suggest the rice noodles with shrimp. They are out of control. And on one visit I had the best turnip cakes I've ever had. I have had visits where my food was less delicious than usual, but in general it's been awesome. It is a little pricier than usual, but that's probably why it's clean and well laid out. The staff have always been quite accomodating to me, and you can always order more food if necessary. If I have a large group, though, I would certainly go elsewhere.

Our taxi driver asked me to write a review so he could decide if he wanted to try this restaurant. My advice is yes, do try. We've not had tradtional dim sum, just odd items in regulare chinese restaurants so we were novices. Might have lliked a bit more guidance but we did very well. Ver busy place, servers were great, and almost every dish we tired was great. At these prices you can afford to try a wide array.

The short and sour of it..... I rarely dim sum in Chinatown because of the lack of parking. This is my 2nd time here because my out of town friend read some good reviews despite my warning. Her Greek tongue had an itch for rare Dim Sum. So heres the lowdown..... Seems very touristy, non local patrons, Nice decor, polite patrons, good lighting and looks clean. Easy menu to order from if you know your dim sum. Man at counter was very rude and non-informative when asked about the menu choices as we were waiting for a table at about 4:21 pm despite the tables were less than half occupied. I tried my Cantonese food names that a friend taught me but he didnt seem to undertand and seemed miffed as if I was making fun of him. He readliy brushed me to the side as if he was really busy as my table was ready. After being seated, order taking , glasses of water, the food itself , tea and the even bill took an eternity to arrive. We ordered only 4 dishes. The wait staff insisted we also order the tasty noodle dishes. We declined after they werent even sure how much it was when we asked. The food was luke warm, small and bland just like the 1st visit. The shrimp gow had a fishy taste to it this time. The skin was thick, content miniscule as if they were intentionally trying to cut cost and hide it. At about $4.50 an order for 4 pieces smaller than Mc Nuggets, my freind did agree that for that money and poor service that somewhere else would be better. To end the experience, the man in red came over and nicely asked if we had cash instead of charging my Visa. I complied, tipped accordingly and vowed never to return again.

I read some good things about this joint and wanted to give it a shot against my better judgement. We wanted something new and different. As a regular Dim Sum eater in NY Chinatown, Flushing and Brooklyn, this is among the poorest in quality and service The atmosphere feels good and the place looks clean. This place has a busy touristy feel and seems to be a good place for people watching. There are some write -ups near the window which we found are not all true. There are no locals here. The food takes forever to be served (over 15 minutes) and the service is uncaring. The tea pot isnt timely re-filled even when requested. I feel rushed as client turnover seems to be priority The portion quantity are very small compared to Hop Sing and its rather pricey here for the quality. There is no value coming here unless you like to watch non-asians struggle to order with the wait staff. 4 basic items cost us over $20 and I had to visit Mc'D shortly afterwards. Make sure you bring cash, there is a unposted minimum to use credit.

I ordinarily don't write reviews of my favorite restaurants, but someone at DSGG found my check I dropped and anonymously mailed it to me. I have no way to thank them otherwise. Everyone I bring from San Francisco say this place is better. It's unfair to make the comparisons with Asia; we are nonetheless happy. It's made to order, it's fresh and it's consistent. I love the comment that the food should be cheap in order to be good. Yet, such people would pay multiples more for less sophisticated Western food. If your criteria is convenience, quantity and cost, may I suggest American fast food?

After two nights of partying, we decided on doing brunch Sunday morning. However, to complete our international flavors of NYC weekend, we opted for dim sum, instead of the traditional waffles and eggs. The first thing I look for in chinese restaurants is cleanliness and GoGo definitely made the list. We were four hungry ladies trying to decide what to order. Thankfully two of the group are Chinese, and so took the liberty of ordering for us (thank you). Our glasses of water were filled and our pot of tea arrived. Starving, we sipped some water and tea while we waited. We ordered: [fried] spring rolls, shrimp balls, turnip cakes; [steamed] chicken & sticky rice in lotus leaf, shrimp dumplings (2), chive dumplings, duck dumplings (2), and snow pea dumplings. Everything arrived piping hot in bamboo steamers and didn't deter us from trying to eat immediately. Each dim sum item ordered was very good. It was my first time trying turnip cakes (which were the two chinese friends' childhood favorites), and it was interesting. Not a texture I'm fond of, but onion-y-potato-y flavor that I liked. My favorites though, were definitely the spring rolls, shrimp balls and duck dumplings. Yum, yum, yum... Sunday morning Dim Sum totally hit the spot. Now to find such a clean, delicious dim sum place in Chicago........
