Dim Sum Go Go in Manhattan’s Chinatown feels more stripped down than what’s happening on weekend mornings at similar spots in the neighborhood. There are no carts roving around here, and the space is only a fraction of the size of Ping’s or Royal Seafood Restaurant. You’re not going to find the same crowded buzz at Dim Sum Go Go as you will at other legendary parlors, where tables are filled to the gills with big families receiving trays of food everywhere you look.

In other words, it’s a great place to remember for a calm Thursday work lunch or a solo experience, since they offer dim sum service every day until 9pm.

Alone or not, their $15.95 dim sum platter remains one of the greatest set deals in the borough. Each one comes with a kaleidoscope of steamed dumplings, and it’s a good way to try a bunch of different pieces in a single order. Supplement the set with baked pork buns or shrimp-stuffed eggplant if you’re with another person, though.

Dim Sum Sampler

Ten varieties of steamed dumplings, ranging from shrimp and pork shu mai to a pink-dyed chive dumpling (they also offer a vegetarian version for the same price). Use of the green ginger-scallion sauce liberally, as well as the super savory XO sauce, both of which automatically come with the sampler.

Roast Pork Buns

Sweet and syrupy pork pieces in the middle of a buttery baked bun. Each order comes with three buns, and we feel confident each person you’re eating with will want at least two.

Shrimp Balls

We like to pair all the steamed dumplings with a couple of fried things. Our favorite being the shrimp balls. They’re crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
