Editorial Review – Dim sum restaurant is tucked away on the top floor of a mall under the Manhattan Bridge.
Compared to the others in Manhattan... – Having grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area and raised on Hong Kong style dim sum, I was hoping that at least one of numerous Chinese restaurants in Manhattan could be counted on for a similar experience. I've sampled several other dim sum places here, and none feature the winning combination that Triple 8 offers: reasonable prices, large range of standard _and_ less common dim sum, little/no wait (not like the Mott St. restaurants), not-too-greasy cooking (not like Shun Lee), consistent quality (not like Jin Fong), family atmosphere (not like Golden Unicorn), and helpful service (e.g., they'll run to the kitchen to fetch what you want if you don't see it on the carts).
I can't wait to go back! – The "Hong Kong-style" (carts with the foods are pushed around and you decide what you want to take) dim sum was amazing! We were seated right away, even on a busy Sunday afternoon, and our first plate was placed on the table in minutes. The restaurant (located upstairs in the mall) is very large, but the flow of food was constant. When I hadn't seen any of their delicious baked pork buns, one of the waitstaff happily sought out a cart that had some and brought a plate to our table. This is a great place for both large and small dim sum outings!!
