One man's personal history of Chinese food in #NewYork .
One of Chinese cooking's greatest champions in America is a white, Jewish, Brooklyn-born hippie teenager, and the restaurateur behind RedFarm and Decoy in the West Village and Upper West Side. Here's Ed Schoenfeld's personal history of how New York's Chinese cuisine became what it is today.

The mother of all teas!
Oolong tea is so uncommon in the West we don't even have an English word for it, and that's a shame, because when it comes to tea, no category offers more diversity of flavor, complexity, and body than oolongs. And no style better shows what carefully manipulated processing can do to a tea leaf.

Vintage dim sum parlor dating back to 1920 with a drink menu that includes tea, beer & wine.- Google
"The shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings are excellent, as are the soup dumplings."
"It does not reflect a real chinese dim sum yet."

Very good first time experience. The service was quick and efficient, and the food was very good and seemed traditional. I was a bit disappointed that they only take cash and Amex. I was also disappointed that they didn't have the traditional dim sum carts. It's good for someone with little experience with traditional dim sum but may seem too Americanized for some.

My first Dim Sum experience and I have to say I enjoyed it! There was so many choices I wish I could have tried them all. I did have the roast pork steam bun (delicious), pork and shrimp shumai, pan fried pork dumplings and steamed dumplings. I only gave 4 stars because servers could have been friendlier but to be honest it was very busy. Also the restaurant is so small depending on where you get to sit you feel like you are eating dinner with strangers.

That was a very very good surprise !! We were offered nice table for 2 by the window right after we arrived and the system to order which somehow reminds me of the Korean/Japanese all you can eat is very smart. The service was efficient and we never had to wait very long. The prices are reasonable and food delicious to me (I'm not an Asian food expert). The place seems to offer WiFi but once connected I couldn't get Internet working. Finally, the place seems to only accept cash and Amex (yep, that's original!!)

Nom Wah Tea Parlor is too over-hyped. The food is mediocre, the waits are long, the service is sub-par, and it's old and dingy. Sorry to say that I'm not a fan and would not recommend Nom Wah. This place is not good, especially in the heart of Chinatown where pretty much all the food is good.

I used to love this authentic Dim Sum place but something has changed and not for the better. I took friends from overseas there hoping to have a great, fun dinner. The first dish that came was pan fried dumplings. It was almost cold and tasted hard and old. Egg fried rice was just okay and the scallion pancakes were nothing to talk about. Soup dumplings were pretty good. The staff there were all very friendly. But the food was just disappointing.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor has wonderful food and fablous tea, also the staff was very helpful in acomidating our wants and needs. There was a very friendly and cozy atmosphere in this authentic oriental restraunt. We loved it!

Pretty awful experience with rude servers and even worse dimsum selections. Not only is the menu limited, but the portions are perhaps fit for a toddler at best. As my friend said, the best part about our meal was the water. Food tasted like it was store bought and then re-heated. Not sure why it averages a 4.1 rating, but I won't be recommending this to anyone.

The dim sum was good. I'm one of those disappointed with the disappearing carts and here you order dim sum off the menu. Went in on a Sunday so some items took a while to come and they didn't flow out the way I would have liked them to. We felt rushed by our server and she seemed to have been anxious to get us out. She couldn't have hidden her annoyance each time we asked her for something.
