Vegetarian Dim Sum House
Posted by 15YearsHere on 12/28/2013
Food here disappointed. The much raved about spinach dumplings had gummy skin and no flavor inside (geriatric food). We had other oily veggies (which don't come with rice for 9+ bucks each). Cold sesame noodles were good (sadly no scallion or sesame seeds on em). Atmosphere is typical Chinatown meh decor. Honestly didn't try any mock meats yet was underwhelmed by what we had. Better veggie lovers dim sum at places that serve meat.

When my friends and I walked in the waitress nonchalantly pointed in the direction of a table to sit at and I thought "here we go.." but after that the service was quick, helpful and courteous. They explained the food as it came out and as we left all friendly and cheerfully thanked us- what a sigh of relief. Anyway- the food! we got an assortment of dim sum (6 types) and omg it was all so good. I am a meat/fish eater and the bbq pork and the shrimp tasted exactly like the real thing, texture and everything! My fav would probably be the shrimp one or the treasure chest! (i think was the name?) it had such an interesting flavour and again, texture. I would definitely go again!

This place is fantastic for dim sum and the soups are delicious. I would definitely recommend the food, however the service is very bad. The servers are rude and unpleasant. On my last visit recently, one of the waitresses very abruptly told us that we hadn't given her a tip in the total amount yet and where we need to leave the tip (!) I would eat more frequently here and be more likely to bring larger groups if the service was better. It's unfortunate as the food really is delicious but the service part really lets the restaurant down.

Went here with a large group, mix of vegetarians and non vegetarians (I am not). Every dish was good, and the place is good for groups of all sizes. Even the fake shrimp looked and tasted great; you will not miss it. Total came out to $8 per person for dinner--can't beat the price. The place might be hard to find if you are not familiar with Chinatown.

The food was good, including many of the Dim Sum, which I preferred to the mock beef. However, 17 dollars for mock beef with broccoli that does not even come with white rice was a ripoff. (Even with a $16.95 plate, a measly serving of plain rice was not included. Rice, sauces, etc., are all itemized here). The bathroom was literally a water closet, with ample graffiti. The kiwi juice was a refreshing treat, albeit slightly warm. The mock beef itself had an unusual texture and flavor not seen elsewhere. The soy sauce was very salty, and one of the waitresses was very rude and aloof. She had the chutzpah to tell us how much to tip her, and she just shrugged when she was told that tipping is optional. (Because of this, I left a tip of $1 and whatever coins were in my pocket)

This is one of my favorite veggie restaurants in NYC. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired but the food is great. For the below post: spring rolls are fried, summer rolls are raw and are usually at Vietnamese restaurants.

Dim sum is inexpensive and you get a lot of it. Good congee. You can order only congee and will be full certainly. However, why the need to fry things so much? Easy to make this food taste better and be better for you without so much deep frying. Not that impressed.
