Village Voice's Description

Tucked away on Doyers Street in the heart of Chinatown, you'll find Nom Wah, the city's oldest tea parlor. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths, potted palm trees, and a vintage diner counter add to the charming ambiance. Fifty-six classic dim sum options span the menu and can be washed down with a variety of Asian teas. Almost everything here excites the taste buds, though standouts include all of the steamed rice rolls, North China-style fried dumplings, siu mai, and fluffy roast pork buns. Go and see for yourself--at prices like these, sampling across the board remains easy on the wallet.

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the steamed-to-order shrimp-and-snow-pea-leaf dumplings, packed with minced shrimp, flecks of scallions and bright, fresh snow-pea leaves. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

    Support this place. Iconic. Classic. Too many old NYC establishments have been closing. Please don't let this be next.

    This 92-year-old Chinatown restaurant serves terrific dim sum in a dining room with old-school charm. This is a great place to go for a cheap and satisfying meal in Chinatown. [Eater 38 Member]

    New York City's oldest and most venerated dim sum parlor given new life, home to some of the best rice rolls in Chinatown.
