Which would you recommend for seafood eaters?

    Ping's is really overrated, I think. I've tried so many things there and it's always bland with too much dough. I had a good experiene at Oriental Garden.

      We go to dimsum often and find ping's and dimsum gogo to be the best in manhattan. Recently tried oriental garden based on various posts and we were disappointed. While there is a mix of carts and waiter service (which helps you get specific items quickly), some of the dumplings were cold, very doughy and filled with too much corn starch.

        i went to Oriental Garden once for dinner and thought it was mediocre at best...very disappointing meal...(my review is on here somewhere)...

        i've been to Ping's a while back and liked it fine but wasn't wowed by it either...unfortunately i don't have a rock solid Chinatown seafood place to recommend right now (although i always love the salt&pepper squid at NY Noodletown, but that's not what you're aiming for, i think)...
