Most of the dishes were salty or bland - really nothing special. Servers are older guys that know this place is a better tip restaurant to work because most of clients were tourists. I paid $68. I know I get much better qualit and foods for that price in C-town I never go back again.

I have been vegetarian for 23 years. I have never tasted meat/seafood all my life. When I ordered the assorted vegetarian platter, I was served seafood. Halfway through my meal, I smelt meat and rechecked with my server, who just casually looked at my plate and said 'That's seafood'. After a half hearted apology, my plate was changed, but I could not trust the server anymore. I was thoroughly disappointed with the overpriced meal and my experience was terrible. If you're vegetarian, skip this place. You never know what they would serve you, even after you write down what you wanna get.

Take a peek inside this restaurant and you'll know all you need to. Prices are relatively high, decor caters to tourists, food is average (certainly not bad, but nothing distinguishing it from more traditional dim sum houses). I will say that its one saving grace is that they deliver.

GO Go was great. My picky 13 year old brother loved the shark fin dumplings, we also enjoyed the shrimp shu mai which actually contained a great serving of FIRM Shrimp, The green dumplings were tasty, and the pork and vegetable was not greasy and overwhelming, the flavors were balanced and the food was piping hot and brought out as each was prepared FRESH! We kept it simple with the house tea and enjoyed the experience, aside from our rudish waiter. They could really do something more interesting with the BLAH interior, and that may make the place more inviting!! I actually told some tourists to go there becuase the food was soo good. I have been to China and Hong Kong and the food here was exceptional and not in the least greasy or foul smelling..The food was delectable.

Way overpriced for the size of portions. I sat down at 4:15 pm and prices go up after 4 pm (dinner menu !!) to near $4 a plate, even though portion sizes are the same - tiny. Crab dumplings were tasty, but the 3 dumplings are very tiny. Meal for 2 would easily get to $40-50 if you don't want to leave hungry, which for Chinatown is way too much for a casual midday meal. They charged me for tea ($3!!), which is something I have never been charged in 10+ years eating in Chinatown. Didn't see one Asian or Chinese person there, they may know something I don't.

I think all the bad reviews on here are probably written by Dim Sum Go Go's competitors. I'm Chinese and am from Hong Kong, so I know what good dim sum should be like. This is by far the best place to go for dim sum in Chinatown. They're great because they offer really yummy and inventive dim sums that are beyond the basic/traditional ha gau (shrimp dumplings) and siu mai (pork/shrimp dumplings). Their food is not overly oily like that of other dim sum restaurants. O, and they also give you free dipping sauces (XO, vinegar, and ginger garlic). Not a traditional offering, but a really nice touch. XO sauce is considered a luxury condiment so it's really great that they offer it. Among my personal favourites are: - Rolls with Shrimp + Mango (for those who like fried things) - Turnip Cakes (not the best, but at least they put real turnips in it) - Dumpling Soup with shark fin - Duck Dumplings (THE BEST BEST BEST!!! Order multiple orders of this!!!) - Stuffed Mushroom - Spinach Dumplings (If you like spinach, you'll love this!!!) - Seafood Dumplings (a nice upgrade from the traditional shrimp dumplings) - Shark Fin Dumplings Love that they make everything fresh. You check off which ones you want on a sheet, and they make it and bring them to your table almost all at once. It's guaranteed steaming hot, not like the places where the dim sum is rolling around in a cart. (The cart places are cool too, but I'm impatient and like to get my order all at once). A major plus = the fact that it's cleaner and nicer than most chinatown establishments. If you have a more sophisticated taste bud, you'll love Dim Sum Go Go!

Used to be one of the best but they have changed to a more tourist-centric place. Quality went down, portion got smaller -just look at their Fried Shrimp balls, they are one third the size of what they used to be- and the price has gone up. If you like Chinatown Brasserie type, over-priced 'pretty.. but they all taste the same' dim sums, you will like it. Their non dim sum dishes have gone south, too. I'm really mad now because this used to be my favorite.
