    1. i won't claim it's the best, but my last few visits to golden bridge have been really good.

        i second golden bridge.

      2. There is no good dim sum in Manhattan. I've been to every place recommended on this site and they are marginal at best. I simply wait until I travel to San Francisco and get dim sum then.

          For the best you will have to leave Manhattan - try "Gala Manor" in Flushing, Queens - just take the 7 train to the end of the line. They're really good.

            Yes - definitely second the rec for Gala Manor. I heard some of the owners have left since the opening, but hopefully not much has changed...has anyone been recently?

              By FAR...Jen Fong (not sure of spelling) about a half a block south of Canal on Elizabeth (east side of the street). Truly amazing dim sum. I think that's all they do there. But, dim sum is one of my favorites and I've had it at most great china towns. This may be my favorite and its appropriately cheap.

                That's Jing Fong, 20 Elizabeth St. No doubt that this is the best dim sum experience in Manhattan Chinatown if you throw in the ambience. Truly the feel of a Hong Kong dining palace. As far as the dim sum itself, you'll get a debate between proponents of this place and several others as indicated on numerous past threads on this board.

        2. I love the Vegetarian Dim Sum House on Pell street. It's all vegetarian, but so good you won't miss the meat! Dim Sum A Go Go is also pretty good.

          1. My family has been very happy eating on Elizabeth Street at Oriental Garden.
