Emperor's Garden Dim Sum

Had dim sum at Emperor's Garden in Chinatown yesterday. Much much better than I had expected. Everything was hot and fresh (escpecially the shumai, or sue-mai as my chinese speaking friend says it is pronounced), and the service was quite cordial. Unfortunately I did not have the apetite to try more items--realy wanted to get adventurous too. Another great feature was the lobby to wait in, rather than being squeezed into an uncomfotable environment or having to wait outside. They also have validate parking, so that ws only $4.
Any other opinions on this place--I know the Chow Chau City and China Pearl fans must have made a comparison?
Yes, but I live here. I would expect to possibly have better options in cities with larger Asian populations, especially if they are in Asia.
I thought the selection was pretty wide at EG, so I don't know that I'd balance the two on that, and the 6 or 7 things I tried this time around were, to me, as good as what I had at China Pearl, and possibly less expensive too.
Please forgive an answer that isn't right on point,(I haven't yet tried Emperor's Garden), but though you might want to know my revised opinion on the Woburn China Pearl. Had tried it a month or so ago and felt it wasn't as good as China Pearl in Chinatown. Tried it again for dim sum last Sunday and it was just excellent! Very convenient from Waltham and parking is free.
