Hole in the wall, but a must if in NYC. The dim sum is amazing and so is the soup. Authentic and delicious. It's the real deal.

We decided to have a non traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. There is a menu on the table and you mark what you want then leave it on the edge of the table. It took a while for our waiter to notice that we filled it out. The food came out... More

I heard this is one of the oldest dimsum restaurants in China town. It has a classic NYC vibe. The servers are friendly and the dimsum is good.

My wife and I ate at Nom Wah over the TG holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The place is not expensive and is tucked away in the heart of China Town. Staff were good at keeping up with service ...one thing to note is it's cash only or Am Ex....

We looked up at google to see who has the best dim sum in NYC. We were very disappointed! The dim sums tasted very plained, well below our expectation.

Ok, I am sorry to write this review because I thought I would be giving this place at least 4 stars. I lived in the Lower East Side my entire life, yes 30+ years and I have never been to this place or heard of it until recently. I know the current owner who is in his 30/40s has been... More

Nom Wah Tea Parlour was the perfect place to stop after a particularly long walk. I was immediately welcomed and quickly seated before looking through the extensive menu. I decided on the pork bun, shrimp rice roll, shrimp in bean curd skin and stuffed eggplant. Everything was a delight. The bun was fluffy and moreish, the rice roll was very... More

We ate at this restaurant during our visit to NYC. It was highly recommended by locals and was mentioned in our travel guide book. However, we were sadly disappointed because the food was just average. We found the flavours were either bland or they just didn't match. Of course, we don't eat asian food often so we may just not... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
