Dim Sum Insight Needed (PHX)

Howdy, all.

J. is coming into town for a long holiday weekend and I would like to find a great place for Dim Sum. I haven't seen a lot lately about either Golden Buddha or C-Fu.

Any recent Dim Sum updates on either of these two places or someplace that gets overlooked?

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Chowhounds!

  1. I seem to remember Great Wall getting good reviews for their Dim Sum on the board, but that was a while ago. You will need to further investigate that.

    I was not impressed with the food I ordered off the menu at Golden Buddha but the Dim Sum smelled wonderful.

    Have a great long weekend!

    1. C-Fu has traditionally been my favorite, but Great Wall might be the best/most consistent dim sum in the Valley right now. I haven't been to either recently enough though. : (

      1. Would love to weigh in on a recommendation for you Seth, but all I can offer is another disappointing experience from this end re Golden Buddha. Had hoped to experience those tales of greatness others claim to have had, but so far have yet to see anything that would make me want to cross the street, let alone drive 30 mins x town for. Hope that helps. Maybe when summers over (and they replace a few staff - we saw arguments and attitude the last time that really should have gone the customers way). Best of luck!

        1. Count this as another vote against Golden Buddha. I was not at all impressed with the dim sum. I grew up eating dim sum in San Francisco's Chinatown, so I might be a pretty harsh critic, but I certainly didn't eat anything at Golden Buddha that would entice me back there. I have not tried C-Fu or Great Wall, so I have nothing to offer in the way of dim sum recommendations.

          1. Another vote for C-FU here. Although I haven't been there in a while either.

            I'm seeing a trend: we all need to eat dim sum more frequently
