Dim Sum go go

If you're used to cheap big dumplings, it may seem hard at first to stomach paying this much for little dumplings -- but for me this place was a revelation. Totally delicious, fresh dumplings with outstanding dipping sauces. The space is simple and elegant, and uncrowded. It's hard to say what the value level is, since you could get six or eight times the mass of dumplings for the price at somewhere like Tasty Dumpling on Mulberry, but the quality is so different here.

I've been frequenting this place for years since they offered one of the freshest dimsum in town unlike some places using factory-frozen kind. I've loved this place so much that it used to be a 'must try' place for all my guests from out of town. But recently we (frequent visitors) have noticed that things have changed: portion got smaller, price went up few times and most of all, the quality isn't the same anymore. Especially the steamed kinds- you won't be able to tell the difference among the different kinds anymore since most of them taste tiringly similarly now. The crabmeat dumplings taste like seafood dumplings, pork & chive dumpling tastes like vege dumplings,...and so forth. Each one used to be distinctively unique and ingredient so flavorful that it wasn't hard to guess which is what. But not anymore- they all taste similar and will carry one or the combo of the following generic flavor: pork, shrimp, chive. What happened?

Dim Sum Go Go has stiff competition being located next door to the wonderful Goody's (now Goodies). They counter with fresh, innovative dishes that I've never encountered anywhere else, or at least in Chinatown. Start with some wonderful dim sum selections, which are well made, but at about $3.25 a plate, are a little pricey by Chinatown standards. Outstanding entrees include a dish of shrimp and edemame(steamed green soy beans) topped with chopped Chinese bacon and dressed with long spikes of fresh chives, A great rendition of sauteed pork with vegetables was well executed, not a small feat at some places. For fun, try the Go Go burgers, a plate of four ground lamb burgers served on steamed bread buns. They serve a free dessert at the end of each meal, a small dish of rice custard with a little circle of mango sauce right in the middle, looking somewhat like a poached egg. The tab is a little high, but the sparse, clean atmosphere, the attentive staff and overall quality of the food are worth the price.

Good food and the tea is good too. Friendly place and good service. The mango pudding is the best I've ever had.

I like to eat here, the food is delicious and tastes freshly prepared and the atmosphere is much more pleasant and calm than most dim sum joints. I recommend this place to the dim sum novice as well as the more experienced and adventurous eaters. Favorite dishes: crab dumplings, pork pies, shrimp and mango rolls.

So after we heard so much about this place, we came and barely missed the lunch, and had dinner. We were the only ones besides one other couple who were seated directly next to us. The service was extremely slow, we constantly had to ask for different things (soy sauce, water, where the 2nd half of our order was), the only redeeming factor was that the food was good. But it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be, we ordered enough dim sum for 2 people to be satisfied (not overly full) - the total was $54! Definitely more than the $10 per person another reviewer reported, or the $30 total bill another reviewer reported. Overall, the service was poor, and the price was high given that it was only dim sum.

I can't stop going to Dim Sum Go Go. It's always an experience. I go on off hours to avoid annoying Sunday Dim Sum Brunch madness, but nothing is like getting fresh roast pork pies. Duck Dumplings, Parsley Dumplings- so many things are a must have, but in some insane cosmic way, whenever I go to Dim Sum Go Go, the meal always ends up $10 per person. It's a constant in the ever changing food universe. The Taiwanese hamburgers are a wonderful change of pace.
