I like to consider myself somewhat of a Dim Sum pro, having tried so many places for so many years on both coasts, not counting unfortunately in Asia.
This is not traditional Dim Sum - there are no carts. Which for me takes away from the experience, but the dim sum is made to order and is hot and fresh and delicious.

The duck dumplings are divine little pocket morsels of goodness. The mango shrimp "rolls" are great too, but piping hot. The shrimp noodles have a great noodle to shrimp ratio. The mushroom dumplings are excellent - only drawback is that they really should not put celery in there. The steamed chicken buns are fantastic.

I always come here with a large group and no one has ever left disappointed. This place gets really packed on the weekends, so come before noon.

Pros: dim sum, price

Cons: no carts

I like this place because it is not like the other places which can be really crowded. The waiters friendly and we didn't wait forever to get our food. And you can get dim sum late whereas some traditional places don't serve it after a certain time.

Let me preface this review by saying that I am a dim sum novice, and that while I really enjoyed the dumplings, it's not a food I will most likely seek out much in the future.

We tried Dim Sum Go Go with a group and had a great time..it was around Chinese New Year and the dragons were out and about, blessing shops and Dim Sum Go Go was one of the spots the dragons stopped. We tried several dumplings but the standouts for me were the crab meat and the chives and shrimp dumplings - delicious!

They offered great service and if I am ever in the mood for dim sum, I will head back to Dim Sum Go Go.

If you are Chinese, I would pass on ever considering this place. After years of reviews complimenting this place, we finally thought to check it out. The dim sum is very good and great that you can have it late in the day. But, all the other food was mediocre at best. Even the white rice left a lot to be desired, it seemed barely warm and we had to ask for it three times. The service was terrible although I saw a lot of fawning over the tourists. I will never go again and I will not recommend it to anyone. Anywhere else in Chinatown would offer you a better meal.

Cons: Terrible other food and service

We stopped in an looked at their menu. Even observed some of the items being served. It looked like they had Americanized the food to attract more folks. If you want authentic, go to Chinatown. The place did seem clean and the staff we talked to were friendly.

We ended up here on a Sunday at 11:30am after friends from out of town saw this place on a bus tour and wanted to give it a try. Yes, this place is definitly for tourists. Modern and sleek decor with no cart service. No, we weren't expected to be treated like royalty, and we know how some restaurants are just no frills, but even factoring that in, the customer service was still bad. A waiter was passing around small plates of eggplant stuffed with some seafood mix, and when we asked what it was, he said, "I don't know." We took it anyway becasue we were starving, but that same guy ended up being our waitor. Very slow and unattentive. It took about 20 to 25 minutes to get our dim sum, seafood and pan fried noodles. All tasted fresh and were steaming hot. The bill came out to about $120 for 7 people (that includes 6 orders of siu mai, drinks & noodle soup). You may have a better experience depending on your waitor, but our waiter, and another person with a DIM SUM GO GO shirt on were both unhelpful and seemed annoyed every time we asked a question. This place is definitly not traditional, so if you are looking for a place where the locals go, no go go here.

I was born and raised in Chinatown, not far from this restaurant at all. However, this was my first time at this place! I can't say the dim sum was good here. First of all, just by looking into the restaurant, you can tell this place was for tourists. You won't find many locals eating here. It was hot when I walked into the restaurant. There were many waiters standing around but none of them initiated services (refilling tea) without you waving an arm for their attention. The dim sum, very small portions. Taste was average - I have had better, say across the street. Price, expensive, and then very expensive for dinner (they charge different prices for dinner). Anything off the dim sum menu was not appealing. I know my dim-sum and I know I won't be coming back!

For the tourist suckers. If you are not picky and you can't tell what is authentic or not or just don't care. You can fill your belly here. Better then some burger joint.

When there for lunch. Great Dim Sum that's totally different from the traditional. But service needs improvement. Go there and try them out.

Great dim sum especially the steamed roast pork bun and snow pea leaf dumpling. The dim sum here actually taste like what they are supposed to be. Unlike the generic shrimp dumpling you get at other restaurants no matter what you order. Must get there before 12 on weekend as it is usually packed

This place is hands down the best dim sum in Chinatown. Even better than some dim sum that I've had in Hong Kong! The bad review below sounds like it was written by someone who works at one of those sketchy, not very good, other places. The only downside is a long wait, but it's worth it!

The dumplings are the most tasteless, smallest thing I have ever had in China Town; and the chicken feet... is the worst. Don't go there for the overated "top 20" NYC resaurant list (which I did...) So not worth it. Personally I think it's more friendlier to people who's afraid of the real Chinese food 'cuase they listed all the food on their menu with comprehansive names. Golden Un.icorn or sketchy Oriental Garden on Elizabeth street is much better. Be advanturous, please.

This is the worst Chinese restaurant in NY Chinatown. The food is below average. The prices are too high and worst of all, the service is so slooooooooooooooow. We waited 2 hours for 4 orders of dim sum which were brought to our table one tray at a time. We left the place hungry and annoyed and headed to another restaurant to eat.

Do yourself a favor. DON'T EVEN THINK OF COMING TO THIS PLACE !!!

if you ask me if they are authentic enough, i would say no, but if they are good for everyone, i would say yes, esp. for those who have never try before. all my friends i brought there, they love it and they start to love dim-sum. but of course, when they get to love it, they would rather go to others more authentic dim sum place.

PROS: good dim sum, esp vergeterian food
CONS: not authentic

This is dim sum Westernized and sanitized for the masses. It's a little more expensive then the other dim sum parlors in Chinatown. I didn't see one dish of chicken feet, or intestines and forget about shark fin buns or dumplings. The afore mentioned dishes are markers of authenticity for me. To be fair; the food I ordered was good. The resturant was chic although somewhat dark for a place with so much natural light. The staff was great with the girl who sat across from me. This is a good place for a first time dim sum diner with a fear of new foods.

The dim sum here is only so-so. The dim sum is ok but doesn't taste that fresh, and the little dishes don't look steamy hot as they should (also note lack of Chinese here). The one vegetarian entree (Abby's treasure) was actually quite a surprise - it was delicious and had wintermelon covering an assortment of fresh mushrooms and vegetables. The meat dishes were only so-so. Just bring someone who speaks Cantonese because waiter may not understand you. Decor leaves something to be desired.

The dim sum here was refuse. An ideal har gow should have a delicate sheath of skin with just enough thickness to lend texture that supports the rich, briny flavor of the shrimp. Theirs is thick and pasty with flavorless shrimp. Speaking of pasty, the turnip cakes would suffice for glue. The shiu mai were tough, bland, and over-cooked, and the rest of the meal was no better. I grew up on dim sum in Hong Kong and San Francisco, and Dim Sum Go Go doesn't stack up. I'm sick of uninformed opinions about "exotic" Chinese food here in New York. In a town that praises itself for its worldliness and culinary savvy, such reviews are an flat-out disgrace. Calling this place good would be like having dirty-water hot dog stand food your whole life, going out to Applebee's and calling it gourmet.

They have good dim sum with reasonable prices. My favorite is crab meat dumplings. I also like shu-mai, which comes with 2 shrimp and 2 pork filling. So one order of shu-mai gives you two flavors. There are some Chinese restaurants that I wish I spoke Chinese to order real authentic Chinese food, but not at this place. Everything is written/explained both in Chinese and English, and waiters are fairly attentive - if you are not sure what you've ordered, they'd tell you right away. The place is clean and well-kept. There is a water tank but no pile of bad looking lobsters, and the water looks clean. The best time to go during weekend is before 11am, so you can take your time to enjoy their food. Good place for families with small children, too.

Walked in on Chinese New Year Sunday late in the afternoon, around 5 or 6 -- seating was not a problem & the dim sum was deliciously fresh -- very likely a by-product of their not using carts. It's a little odd at first to order dim sum off a checklist, but the result is fantastic since the food is made to order. And yes, order in bulk -- you see your waiter once then never again.

This is a restaurant that serves dim sum all the time and any time. However, they have taken all the fun out of eating dim sum by taking away the essential dim sum experience, which is the ladies wheeling around the food on carts. So instead of being able to see the food and pick which dishes you want impulsively as the ladies push the carts by you, now you have to order off a menu. If I wanted that, I'd go to a real restaurant. I want to be able to see and pick, not blindly order. There is a wide selection of dim sum. Unfortunately, the food is average. The wait and the crowd was ridiculous. You have to take a number and some folks actually wait outside b/c of the crowds already waiting inside for what is essentially glorified brunch food. The ambience is very good for Chinatown.

Excellent dumplings served amid clean, chic decor. I got the $10 10-piece dim sum combo, every bite of which was great. But $1 for each small piece??? Not worth it. I won't go back unless someone else is footing the bill.

After reading good reviews about Dim Sum Go Go, we took out-of-town guests to experience trendy dim sum. Instead of the copious, fresh dumplings and bite-sized treats we were expecting, we got greasy bones of meat, heavy buns and inedible dumplings. Don't know if we caught the restaurant on a bad night or if we ordered the wrong things, but our food was terrible and the service wasn't much better.

Got a seat quick, and had some weird fill-out order form for a hard to understand menu. Maybe that's how it is in Chinatown. But anyway, the service was non-existant. Our waiter didn't say a word to us. I would've taken a little Chinese even if I didn't understand it. Sheesh. The dim sum assortment plate was interesting since each one was a surprise. They were good, but a tad expensive. Can't say much for decor. I liked the wall of aquariums though.

Tasty but expensive. Stick to dimsum, not super overpriced noodles. Very different than "regular" dimsum places. Usually 3 vs. 4 items per dish. Okay service. Worth a visit.

Do not get the Go Go Hamburgers, no matter what the reviews say. They were such a rip-off ($8.95 for four small meat patties in steamed buns) and not worth trying. The rest of the dim sum, though pricey by Chinatown standards, is worth it. Steamed fresh so brought hot hot hot to your table. The wait here is long for dim sum, but if you don't like sharing tables or if the typical raucous dim sum atmosphere is not your gig, this is a sleek (for Chinatown) alternative. A few tips: skip the turnip cake, roast pork buns and egg custards. These are overpriced and you can get better just around the corner: (1) turnip cakes at the little kiosk on east side of Mott St. just south of bayard (2) egg custards and pork buns at either bakery on west side of Mott street just south of Canal.

This is place is great - exotic, interesting food at very cheap prices. I've tried the steamed shrimp dumplings in nearly every Chinatown dim sum restaurant and the ones here are my absolute favorites. You get a pot of delicious jasmine tea with your order and dining room has very fun modern decor, a little like sitting in a Target comercial.

The food here is certainly a wild and experimental take on Chinese food. Most people going to Chinatown for a meal are not looking for something like this however. The portions were on the smaller size and more expensive than traditional fare. Most people familiar with regular Chinese food will leave hungry and probably a bit disappointed. The advantage of this place is the dim sum which you can get at any time unlike other Chinatown restaurants that serve it only from early morning through afternoon. But this comes at a cost, the dim sum is also much pricer than other restaurants in Chinatown. Unless you are looking for another perspective and modern art approach to Chinese food this is probably not what you were coming to Chinatown for.

Very tasty dumplings!! whoever wrote the previous comment obviously didn't know what a true good Chinese food is supposed to be. Service was not the most fancy one I have ever seen but they are not rude and they were very friendly in their own way.
One of the few places where you can have a good dim sum at night time!
