Dim Sum in Chinatown

lmbgm | | Jun 21, 2011 07:55 AM

I'm headed to chinatown tomorrow with my parents looking for some Dim Sum. My parents are from HK and Beijing. I've never been to the one in NYC before.

After doing some research, I've found a few places that look good:
Nom Wah Tea Parlor
27 Sunshine
Oriental Garden
Hop Shing
9 Chatham Sq

I also see on this board that Dim Sum Go Go and Red Egg seem to be popular, although I've read that alot of people say that Dim Sum Go Go is more americanized. I've seen Nom Wah rated very well on many sites, but from reading the reviews, some people say it is a tourist trap and not many chinese people eat there which isnt a good sign. I hear 27 Sunshine is cheap and Oriental Garden is expensive.

What would you guys recommend? Do all of these places serve dim sum on a wednesday? I'm just looking for "authentic" meaning tastes good, made properly, and fresh, not necessarily decor or carts.
