Went to Golden Unicorn for a Chinese banquet to celebrate the year of the pig. The food was plentiful and interesting, making it a great evening.

We were a group of twenty for dim sum the other day. The Golden Unicorn handled us ( and the five hundred or so other folks that had dim sum there that Saturday morning) with ease. Shrimp dumplings, pork and shrimp dumplings, steamed chicken feet,...More

Went there on Sun morning, make sure you go early (before 11 am), otherwise you'll face long wait and diminished service. Typical dim sum place, all items plates selected were tasty. Very good value for money.

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

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
