I wanted to take my visiting mother to eat chinese dumplings for dinner tonight. she's visiting from arizona and she only lives there part time but she truly misses asian food (she lives in manhattan the rest of the year).
so i did some searching and thought maybe din tai fung? i did a search on this board and it doesn't get very good reviews. mostly overrated or bad service. is it worth it or is there another place people recommend? what dumplings are good and what's not worth ordering? thanks!
