it was the right environment, right circumstances, right seating, right food, etc. there's something for everyone. the veggies, the carnivores... the scared-sh*tless Dim Sum Virgins and the pro's. we flagged down the cart pushers and basically exclaimed, "that... that... that.... and.... that!" i must warn you other VIRGINS, though... don't let the servers pressure you into anything. they will all say, "it's very good. try it. very very good!" and basically shove the plate in your face until you wince like a little puppy and give into their charms. if the food looks scary or gross... DON'T SAY YES!!!! shake your head, "no" or wave. they will look offended... but hey, you're PAYING for that lil ol' dish of chicken feet, yo!
the food was delicious. everything i had was very satisfying. i'm a picky Dim Sum gal... i was raised in the westsiiiiiide. the Dim Sum in Manhattan isn't really glamorous or tasty. however, Asian Jewels Seafood did not disappoint. the service, great patience and accommodations for my lovely entourage was quite pleasing. #maybeQueensisntscaryafterall.
Asian Jewels Seafood
Although the order system here is little confusing, their dim sum tastes awesome!! Once you get a seat, waiters come to you with carts filled with dim sum dishes. If you want to have them get dishes and if you don't you can wait for the next cart. We ate as much as we can and paid only $16 each!!
Asian Jewels Seafood Restaurant, Flushing, NYC
For all the buzz that Asian Jewels Seafood Restaurant in Flushing has got and “Best Dim Sum” lists it has made it to – all I have to say is DO NOT GO!
There is no reason to have such an average dim sum meal in Flushing, which is teeming with eateries that have such great eats.
Asian Jewels is housed in a large space on 39th Avenue between College Point Boulevard and Prince Street. We tried a host of dim sum dishes and nothing stood out and most of it was cold. The meal was such a disappointment I don’t even want to waste more time writing about it. I would much rather stick to my old reliable “Dong Yi Feng” where I know I’m going to get a good meal.
Here is some of what we ate:
Asian Jewels Seafood
Asian Jewels Seafood Restaurant is a dining establishment located in downtown flushing in the state of New York. They serve a variety of Asian cuisine and seafood dishes to match anyone's taste. Most people rave about the duck feet or the chickens feet that are deep fried to add even more flavor. If that's not your style you can try one of the popular dim sum dishes that will get your taste buds rolling because a lot of people recommend it. Even if you aren't into those dishes you can also try the sticky rice wrapped in the banana leaf as well, that is a very popular dish among customers. Here you will find a wide range of Asian cuisine.
The atmosphere of Jewels Seafood is a very fun, loving, inviting atmosphere. The dining establishment is located very closely to a train stop on main street, which makes it very accessible for everyone. Some say the carpets in the establishment allow it to get dirty very easily, it does add to the traditional Chinese theme in the restaurant.
Some would say the service here at Asian Jewels is very ""to the point"" in the sense that you get what you ask for and nothing more, which isn't a bad thing as they are very busy. The menu is appropriately priced and there is never a long wait here as well as an abundance of open seats around the clock.
