Dim Sum go go

Stick to the dim sums and what ever you do don't order the main meals from the menu. We did and it was subpar. Bad baby food. Fungus and Chinese Broccoli was uneatable. Half of the plate was egg whites and the broccoli was limp. Then out came the nexxt disaster dish tofu with scallops and crab meat. They didn't mention that most of it was tasteless prawns!! more baby food. ugg. Stick to the dim sums which are really nice and fresh. Just don't order from the main menu.

This is what dim sum SHOULD be: freshly made from fresh ingredients, and cooked to order, almost unique in Chinatown. The main dishes are REAL Chinese food, the recipes coming from Veronica's home village and mom. You won't find Americanized food here. A bit pricey, and it can get VERY noisy at times, but well worth the trip.

pretty good for a place with a touristy feel. great location! almost seems a bit fast food-like from the outside. a great dine on the inside. very conducive to conversation. service is pretty decent. Great selection.

I recently went to Dim Sum Go Go with some people, and I had a fabulous time. The restaurant is simple, clean and modern, and they seated us quickly. The servers were a bit rushed, but otherwise nice. At the table, we received a small card (much like a scorecard) that had the dim sum menu, and we marked off the items we wanted for our table. This method is perfect for beginners, since it takes the mystery out of dim sum (no more wondering about ingredients, like in pushcart-style dim sum). The dim sum itself is pretty inexpensive, so make sure to order lots! The food itself is fabulous. Everything is fresh and tasty, and the dumplings are not heavy or starchy. One of the best dim sum places around, and a real treat!

I first visited the restaurant with Colette, the owner, (is she still involved?) when I was interviewing her for a British magazine, and the quality stayed in my mind. Brought my daughter for a post-university trip to New York and came here for lunch. The dim sum platter was heavenly - definitely different from the ubiquitous frozen, thawed, steamed items you can buy yourself in any Chinese supermarket and which so many restaurants trot out - and the chicken in garlic, which had remained in the taste buds of memory, wonderfully original - a perfect mix of crunch, salt, pungency and melting chicken. Don't understand the people on this site who complain about portion size...we could not finish, and thought it great value for money. Also extremely friendly service.. Will be back on the next trip!

My husband and I have tried place after place, searching desperately for decent dim sum in NYC Chinatown. Time again we've been disappointed by the cheap ingredients and poor taste of most places. We were ready to give up ever finding a place comparable to the far superior dim sum joints (and Chinese restaurants in general) in Los Angeles. Finally, a place with not only excellent tasting dim sum, but of such fresh quality and inventive flavors! The menu is diverse, with classic favorites like shrimp rolls, radish cakes, shu mai, and har gao, but also a vast array of inventive new tastes. The vegetarian dim sum is excellent. The food is more expensive here, but well worth it.

I first came here with my friend who met the owner of the restaurant in china. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. Every dish has a unique flavor, unlike most of the "Chinese" food we get in New York. There is no "brown sauce" or "garlic sauce" coating every dish, and certainly no MSG. Definitely go for the duck dumplings- they are the best in the world, the GO GO chicken is also amazing- they fry little bits of garlic and cover a chicken with this incredible confection. And the Chinese chives and walnuts- a wonderful m?lange of crunchy sweet walnuts and fresh green chives. The dipping sauces- ginger, spicy fish and spicy oil, are so good I?ve tried to convince veronica to sell them in stores. Overall this is by far the best Chinese food in the city. I highly recommend it.
