My husband and I have met his aunt and uncle there on two separate occasions. The first time, it had just rained and there were only four or five tables but by the time we left, the line was out the door! Food was very good. We had the BBQ buns (steamed and baked) and they had plenty of good filling - no giant pieces of fat like you sometimes get. Egg tarts were very small but tasty. The duck dumplings were tasty but I was not a fan of the skin - too gummy. The staff was friendly and one guy seemed to speak every dialect of Chinese that there is! The second visit we had our 6-month old niece with us and were seated upstairs. All the other tables up there had children too so we didn't have to worry about her making noise that might bother the other people. Very family friendly and the food is good.

Dim Sum Go Go
All tourists want to visit Chinatown . Despite police crackdowns, it’s still the knock off bags and jewelry that lures them down to Canal street in search of the whispering Chinese merchants who will sneak them down a back street and way downstairs to see the “real” good stuff. And all this intrigue and negotiations for a good price certainly work up an appetite.
So, if it is daytime, my favorite place is Dim Sum Go Go. You have to walk past all the very much the same Cantonese-Shanghai Americanized places down Mott street until you reach Confucius Plaza for the best dumplings in Chinatown. These are not the heavy thick, doughy versions where the mystery shrimp balls or pasty pork pop out when you bite into them. Dim Sum Go Go features a great selection of very well spiced dumplings (my favorite is the duck) in delicate thin wrappers as well as other Dim Sum favorites and full of flavor main dishes.
This is one of the few place with a cool atmosphere (no trite décor or dreary dirty walls) and which is given more character by the owner Veronica Leung who is a real character. She will scold you for using soy sauce on the dumplings as she offers her ginger scallion elixir – and you realize she is right as you decide to try some more by circling your choice in pencil and handing yet another order to your waiter.
