Join us for dinner at Vegetarian Dim Sum House in Chinatown, one of our perennial favorites. Established in 1986, it’s a mainstay of Chinatown New York City!

I have been a patron of Vegetarian Dim Sum House for many years, and it never ceases to impress me. To find vegetarian versions of all the various delicacies with their different flavors, both sweet and salty, is amazing! Dumplings of all sorts, “treasure boxes”, vegetable buns, mini spring rolls, fried bananas — these are just some of the huge varieties of dim sum available. Almost everything is vegan, just ask the waitstaff to be sure.

Time Out: “After ambling past Chinatown shop windows displaying glistening ducks and flopping fish, vegetarians will be relieved to step into this meat-free haven—even if the dark-green carpeting and pale-green walls call to mind a corporate office. The menu offers excellent and convincing mock-meat dishes, including delicate “shrimp” dumplings (made with rice flour, yams and tofu), crispy, slightly sweet sesame “chicken” (deep-fried bean curd skin) and Peking “spareribs”—yams doused in a peppery sauce. In place of dessert, order a fresh fruit shake—kiwi is our favorite.”

Vogue: “… Vegetarian Dim Sum House was the first vegetarian dim sum restaurant in Chinatown, according to its owner Frankie Chu. … ‘The watercress dumplings at Vegetarian Dim Sum House are crazy good,’ says Young, who notes they are made with watercress, mock ham and mushrooms for the filling and ha gao dough for the wrapping. ‘Make sure you use their house dipping sauce.’ … Young also recommends trying the spinach dumpling, snow pea leaves dumpling, and vegetarian mock shrimp dumplings”

Medium: “This restaurant may not be a looker, but that’s okay — it’s not what they set out to do. Instead of worrying about aesthetics even in the slightest, Vegetarian Dim Sum House is focused on their food: their tagline is ‘Mock meats and more,” and they certainly deliver on that promise.'”

Come anytime between 6:30pm and 9:30pm.

For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. It will be easy to find our group: we will inside the restaurant. Also, everyone pays for their own meal. Easy!

Train Directions: The closest trains are the J, Z,4, 6, N, Q, R, & W to Canal St, and B & D to Grand St. Please note any MTA reroutes during the day of event.
