Classic dim sum restaurant but hold on to your order sheet! They will plop down plates quickly and stamp your sheet before you can decline. Even when you refuse they will drop, stamp and run before you have a chance to argue. Dumplings were good,...More

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
