I am not sure why this restaurant has such a mediocre rating, but speaking about our dim sum experience it was THE VERY BEST dim sum experience in NY area. A bit more expensive then other places we've tried but worth it 100%. Everything we tasted was outstanding in flavor, very fresh and hot, and perfectly portioned. The service was... More

I read some really good reviews on this place and I knew I wanted some great Dim sum when I went to NY, so I had to try it. This place was so good! I've had dim sum in san francisco and London and this definitely compares to those. It was very good and well priced. I would recommend it... More

Authentic Dim Sum in Chinatown. Food is good. Plentiful n good service. All the popular dishes that I expected are there n did not take long to fill up. Go upstairs to the traditional eating with carts coming to you to pick from. Downstairs you can sit n order the same thing if you know what to order. Will definitely... More

We held our annual family "Chinese banquet" for the fourth consecutive year at Oriental Garden. Very solid tasty food--our large group keeps it mainstream but all of the dishes are well prepared. Management was very helpful again in arranging the mail and service was excellent. Whole steamed sea bass was particularly good and the dim sum appetizers were excellent. Not... More

We had a party of 6 and wanted to try new foods. We had reservations and choose one of the preset menus from their website. We enjoyed every dish. We were visiting from Chicago and were sad we could not bring home the leftovers. I would highly recommend.

Our dinner dishes consisted of Cantonese Style Fillet Steak, Steamed Fish, Roast Chicken, Sweet & Sour Shrimp, Assorted Seafood Pan Fried Noodle and Assorted Stir Fried Vegetables. The dining...

It's sort of an unwritten and humorous New York city tradition that Jewish people flock to Chinatown on Christmas- ostensibly because so many "American" restaurants are closed. For years my family has been going to a hole in the wall called Wo- Hop, around the corner, but when we had to wait on line two hours last year, we decided... More

Oriental Garden is a decent dim sum place in Chinatown. A little less known, but that helps with the waits. The place is relatively clean, and the options for dim sum and large dishes are not lacking, and some plates are indeed impressive. Note that it's cash only.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
