Can I get a private room for Dim Sum on a Sunday in Chinatown?

I'm trying to organize a party for about 40 people on Sunday where we could have dim sum in a private room (or a divided room). We need to stay in Chinatown because the group will all be downtown.

Any suggestions? I was going to try CBS because they usually are less crowded than Empress & Ocean.

Thank you for you help!

  1. Yes, Empress will definitely do it for you. Even if they don't give you a private room, they can easily partition off part of the dining room for your party. Call ahead.

      I don't think they'll partition a part of the dining room for them. My friend had a funeral luncheon there on a weekday with 15 tables and they wouldn't partition an area for them.

    2. Ocean Seafood can do it ( they have a second dining room they might be able to open for you) but do call ahead.

      1. Dim Sum on Sunday is crowded at CBS on Sunday.

        Check with Golden Dragon. They can section off a part of the dining room for your group. It's one of the larger restaurants in Chinatown.

          Thanks! I had forgotten about the Golden Dragon!

          I will go down & talk to people this week & see what will work best.
