Reviews

NPR's Best Books of 2016

"Perfect for those who specialize in eating Chinese food, rather than making it."
- T. Susan Chang, The Level Teaspoon

"It is as erudite as it is darling. Whether exploring Buford Highway or boarding a plane for Guangzhou, it's as essential as your wallet and your passport."
- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Ms. Phillips's guide is extensive and satisfying. Her taxonomy is invariably brief, demanding only as much time as one will tolerate being delayed from reaching for a pair of chopsticks. Each item includes a short description, helpful tips on sauces, fillings and variations, plus some insightful history."
- Wall Street Journal

"Small enough to fit in a handbag, Carolyn Phillips' beautifully illustrated guide really can help a nervous diner navigate the sometimes intimidating realm of dim sum."
- NPR
