Think diner meets dim sum. Had a delicious meal here in this little taste of heaven and history. The interior is nostalgic and kitsch but not cheesy. The service efficient. You order by checking boxes on a paper menu. It’s not dim sum with carts...More

This is a simple and totally down to earth place where to grab good dimsum in NYC - nothing pretentious but the food is good, the waiters are efficient and it just works for what it is. Certainly worth a visit.

I brought two friends to visit Manhattan and one was very adamant about getting dim sum. We made our way to Chinatown and stumbled upon this place because it had the best reviews upon a quick Google search near us. We waited nearly two hours...More

We were recommended this place by two native New Yorkers and from the outside, we weren't quite sure we were in the right place. Based on an unassuming street without any curb appeal, we dived in and were not disappointed. This is definitely a no...More

We went here after my daughter recommended to us. Upon arriving at the restaurant you are given a number and have to wait out in the street as it is so busy and popular. Bizarrely this somehow adds to the charm and excitement. After a...More

I’m not normally a big China Town fan, but Nom Wah changed my opinion. Be prepared for a long wait but it is worth it for some of the best dumplings you’ll ever have. We particularly enjoyed the fried dumplings and the noodles.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

We were not disappointed with any of the dim sum we had, but be sure to have the OG Egg Rolls. They're a must have!
