There is hardly anything good on their menu and the only thing that is good costs 10 bucks apeace. And coming in small portions.,I would never reccomend this place because of the price and because all the food is fatty and oily :( it severely dissappointed me. I ordered a seemingly harmless shrimp dumpling and the shell for one of them was still intact

The mixed platter is a winner

I went to this place last night, and the 10-piece dim sum mixed platter was a winner! With over 20 types of dumplings, the platter was a wise choice to gain a wider appreciation of this dumpling house. The dumplings were delicious on their own, and only needed a few condiments, if at all, and left me salivating for more. Without embellishment, the platter was the best set of dumplings I've had in years. The only downfall was the price ($13.95 for dinner and $11.95 for lunch), but worth the experience. The service was average, and the decor wasn't as good as it's depicted in the media - it wasn't as modern as I expected. I did not need reservations, and I went at 7pm on a Tuesday night.

I went recently (May 2010) and found the decor updated to hyper-modern. At 6 pm on a Saturday the service was OK, but of course don't expect fluent English. The 10-item dim sum platter was not as good as items ordered separately, like the shrimp and chive dumpling, and I found the turnip cake too gooey.

I took my work team here for lunch and we had a wonderful time. Everyone loved the food - the 3 vegetarians and the rest of us. It is so delicious and beautiful, we were blown away. We are native NYers and not easily blown away. Grouchy staff are what we expect, but they seem like pros to us.

Really a shame

  • No, I would not go back!

The waiters are rude (one knocked my chopsticks on the floor and pretended not to notice...are you serious???), the wait times are rather absurd (20 minutes for 2 bowls of white rice...really?), and when the food does come they bring them out sporadically and in a totally haphazard order. Sadly, the food is actually quite good and reasonably priced...it's a real shame that you have to put up with the waitstaff in order to get it. I would not recommend this place because you can definitely get food just as good elsewhere without the comically bad service. If the give their waiters some training and overhaul their system on taking and bringing out orders then it would be a completely different story.

Awesome food, great service

Went to Dim Sum Go GO for an early dinner. The place was pretty quiet. The dim sum is great and the main course dishes are awesome as well. I've spent a lot of time in mainland China and HK so my standards for Cantonese and other Chinese regional foods are quite stringent. The waiters were really nice and gave my fiance and I complementary desserts which were super tasty. Definitely is worth a visit.

Watch Out Golden Unicorn

Being half Cantonese and having lived in China for nearly 3 years, I've had my fair share of siu mei and har gou. The overwhelmingly positive reviews for this spot led us to lunch there today and, drab decor and seriously uncomfortable chairs aside, the praise is deserved. Expertly prepared, our favourites were the lightly pan-fried coarsely shredded turnip cakes, crispy spring rolls and delicately steamed prawn and chive dumplings. The only obvious disappointment was the entirely bland plate of black bean spare ribs, seasoned stingily with only 3 black beans. Our 6 dishes came to a bargain $23 and with much more on the menu to try, we'll definitely go go back.

DON'T GO GO!

The major reason I don't recommend the restaurant is the horrible service, the high prices considering the average food served, and the long wait period until the food is served. There are other places around the neighborhood worthy of your business with better service, food, and prices... why should we go when the waiters at Dim Sum Go Go just don't care.

Go Go for Dim Sum & More

I have eaten Dim Sum all over the world and this restaurant is one of the best. Besides the Dim Sum the food is amazing - Their chicken with garlic stem is not to be believed. I have been a dedicated customer for 5 years - taken family friends and clients and they always want to return. The time to avoid is Sunday afternoon - the crowds are out the door and there is always a wait. In general I can't wait to go go back.

Due to the absolute lack of service, my friends and I ate all of the condiments before the food actually came out. What can I say, the condiments are great! The food is good too, but be prepared to sit around for a while and watch the waiters dawdle in the corner.
