Golden Unicorn Restaurant
This longtime Chinatown restaurant is tremendously popular due to its reputation for excellent steamed dimsum. Despite being on two floors, it is constantly packed, especially on weekends and a long wait for a table is not unusual. However, patience will be rewarded. For the more adventurous, there are seafood dishes such as braised shark fin soup and for everyone else, the dim sum will do just fine.
We have frequent Golden Unicorn for dim sum the last 9 years every time we visited NYC. This is the best dim sum restaurant in NYC's Chinatown. It is located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building. Nice decoration, reminding one of a Chinese banquet restaurant.
The dim sum are served steaming warm in carts, pushed by the hostesses. The carts have photos and English version of the dim sum items on the front. The serving portions are reasonable and the prices are good for an upscale restaurant. Customer service is good for seating, drinks and and dim sum.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting dim sum in NYC.
