Home, this is the closest taste to Home. It personally doesn't taste exactly like authentic Chinese Yum-Cha cuisines, but this will do. This is definitely a remedy for those who are home-sick from China, or specifically like I, Hong Kong. They have everything, from Fried Rice to Siao Pao, even the yum-cha-ladies-throwing-dishes-abruptly-and-dropping-bill-right-after-you-order. Oh yes, the Chinese ways. But I love... More

Really great dim sum and vegetable rice!! I highly recommend the scallion pancakes! Food is great I just couldn't give the fifth "star" because the service was very lax. Very busy spot with wait times upwards of 15 minutes on weekends. Very authentic food !

If your looking for good dim sum then look no further. This is about as Authentic as you can get. I came and visited my friend up in the city and told him I wanted some good dim sum. He told me that he heard of this one place and we stumbled across it walking around town so we definitely... More

Tucked away on a quiet street, dim sum at Nom Wah will delight your taste buds without breaking the bank. Highly recommend the shrimp and snow pea leaf dumplings. soup dumplings, OG egg rolls (the best ever!) and their savory, sweet (and massive) steamed pork buns. The Empress green tea provided just the right undertones for the meal. 5 of... More

This is one of the most highly reviewed dim sum places in China town. It was busy at about 6pm (while most other places weren't) which was a good sign. Loads of choice and as always ordered way too much and it still only came to about $35.

Very delicious dim sum with great selection but also very popular - expect a long wait and a busy/ not so friendly staff that will rush you through dinner. Overall the meal was worth it but manage your expectations before going

We have been eating at Nom Wah since the late sixties and continue to love the dim sum experience here, tho we do miss the women pushing carts laded with choices fresh from the kitchen. The recent upgrade by the nephew of the owner before him has resulted in a somewhat fancier place with a little less "true grit" than... More

Classic Dim Sum dishes you order at the table and it is prepared in the kitchen . Cool little side street in Chinatown. Fun atmosphere, average Dim Sum.

I went to Nom Wah to try dim sum for the first time. The food was great, everything we tried was amazing, especially the chicken dumplings. The service was great too, everything came out really quick and was prepared perfectly. I ordered tea as well, it was some of the best tea I have ever had. I would highly recommend... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
