Although the service isn't the greatest, the food makes up for it! Go during the week (Monday-Friday) for $2.35 for all items.

Fun place – If you go on a weekend, Saturday is less crowded than Sunday. Arrive not at 1 pm. or 2 p.m. (if you arrive later than 2 p.m., forget it). Get there at 10.30 a.m. The food is freshest then, and you will not have to wait in the lobby or out on the street. Sometimes the dim sum will be luke warm, sometimes nice and hot, but always delicious. I almost always ignore the women with the carts but go straight to the buffet table which, surprisingly, is not crowded as most people wait for the carts. Sitting with strangers is no problem at all. The place is clean. When a group leaves, the waiters turn down the dirty tableclothes, and set up clean ones for you. I've never found an insect EVER in the place. Some critics have said the waiters throw the tea and utensils at you. This is not The Four Seasons. I've found everyone polite.

A dining adventure – Eating at this dim sum restaurant is an exercise in organized chaos, one that leaves the diner full, happy, and only slightly overwhelmed. First entering can be something of a hassle, as the line is often long and the wait system complicated. After going up a set of escalators and entering the football field-sized dining room, you are shuffled to your table, often shared with other diners. This is where the action begins. In true dim sum style, the wait staff races around the room wheeling carts plied high with delicacies, from steaming noodles to coconut dessert pudding. Catch them as they run by, point at something that looks good, and enjoy. A number of dishes are also available in the back of the room, including some rare vegetables. I had the opportunity to witness a dragon and drum parade while eating there, which, while entertaining, went about 20 minutes too long. Even with the loud thumping, this was something of an experience. Secret tip: word is that for Sunday brunch, the best food comes out first, so get here by 11.

Great dim sum – Everything we had tasted great - and love to go back to try more. Staff was friendly - at times it was a long wait for the card.

incredible variety and a fun cultural experience if you take it with a smile! – great eating experiences are not about decor or presentation. Just great food. So anyone reviewing a restaurant and spending half the review talking about the quality of the bathrooms should not be reviewing restaurants. Nevertheless, this place sports a HUGE dining hall (and I dont mean by new york standards) and endless cart service. Yes they seat you with perfect strangers but they did put me with a couple of cute girls so it was all good. The food was simply delicious and the variety was unbeatable. I pointed at whatever looked good and they served it and I was not dissapointed. I'm definitely going again and you should too. As far as the service, if you have ever eaten or bought anything in chinatown you're probably used to it. You just smile and enjoy your delicious snails! I ordered 6 different plates for under 20 bucks! how can you beat that? And the food was top quality.

Consistent food, numerous carts, good for groups – I used to go to the Golden Unicorn but now Jing Fong is my first choice for dim sum. Don't be deterred by the crowd in the lobby--the escalator leads to an enormous banquet hall so you'll be seated quickly. Once seated, wave down the carts or just hop up and take your card with you if you see something you like. The steamed dumplings and pork buns are good, as is the rice wrapped in tea leaves (or banana leaves?). There is a ton of seafood options. You may have to order the beef and chicken items. Be prepared to have no servers speak English. The green caterpillar-like dessert items are flaky pastry stuffed with durian pudding, a good way to get introduced to the fruit. I've never had anything that didn't taste good.
