Northern Manor (Little Neck)

  • r

It's official. Flushing has fully extended itself all the way east on Northern Blvd to Little Neck with the opening of Northern Manor. This is an authentic chinese restaurant that just opened. I haven't tried it yet but it looks real interesting. They have dim Little Neck! (see below) Can't wait to try it.

  1. Well, it's in my neck of the woods so I'll be trying it soon. I'm just trying to picture where exactly it is......?

      It's on the north side of Northern Blvd. I believe it took over the old Zen Pavilion location.

      1. I've eaten there about 5 or 6 times; never had a bad dish. The dim sum is delish; the regular dishes are also.

        I'm especially happy not to have to shlep to Flushing for authentic chinese.

        Little neck has a few very fine places to dine now. I'm glad.

          When do they do dim sum? Everyday? Sunday brunch? I'm also nearby - what else do you like?

          1. re: Scribbler

            I think dim sum is only on weekends, until lunch time. The selection is excellent. I've also ordered from the regular menu and had some tasty dishes. There is also another menu that I've scanned, but it had mostly the Chinese delicacies that I would never try......use your imagination.

            This is, as far as I know, the only authentic chinese restaurant in my area. There are others in Flushing that are very good, but now this one is only 5 minutes away! It highly appeals to my lazy quality.


        2. ...Yes, I have also heard that NORTHERN MANOR IS AMAZING...friends have reported long waits for tables on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I live in the heart of Flushing so I may not get there anytime soon.

          1. I totally agree that Northern Manor is worth it and probably the most authentic Dim Sum you'll find in Little Neck for now.

            Its best to get there earlier (11:00-11:45) to really avoid the crowds that might populate there during the weekends. Definitely recommended either way.

              It's mobbed on weekends. Be prepared to wait. Worth the wait too. The dimsum is delicious.

                They offer Dim Sum on weekdays as well- at least on Wednesdays. I tried last week. It was OK. The spare rib black bean was no good (tough meat, watery sauce, no flavor) and the wrapped and stuffed tofu skin fell apart in a bad way. The little fish cakes were pretty good and the shrimp dumplings not bad. They have some nice looking fish tanks there with all sorts of tasty looking critters. I'm wondering how well they do seafood entres...
