Dim Sum in Princeton NJ area ??

Anyplace decent that is still in business ?
I've found "Grand Palace" listed, but found hints that it is now called "Shanghai Park" (related to the one in Highland Park ? ) but really don't want to trust the bare info I came across.

Any other places, recently chow-ed at ?

  1. We used to go to a place many years ago in the Princeton Shopping Center (I can't remember the name but they've since closed). I know there is another Chinese restaurant in the same space now, but I don't know if they do dim sum. I hope someone else has a recommendation because it's been years since I've had good dim sum outside of NYC's Chinatown.

    1. A half hour or so north of Princeton is Wonder Seafood on Route 27 in Edison. The owner used to have a restaurant in NYC Chinatown and the dim sum is quite good--worth the trip from Princeton

      1. The place at Princeton Shopping Center was called "King's Palace" and is now Shanghai Park. It's excellent, but I don't believe they do DimSum. They do have amazing Soup Dumplings (Xiaolongbao) though.

        For Dim Sum, we really like Sunny Palace 1069 Route 18 South, East Brunswick 732-651-8668.
        Definitely worth the drive.

        1. A little north - in Green Brook on 22 West, next to Outback - is Dyansty. My wife and I were there once and enjoyed it, although at the time, we didn't know a lot about dim sum, and were hobbled by difficulties making her vegetarian requirements undrestood.

          Whenever we pass it, there's very often a line of people - people who look like they know more about Dim Sum than us - waiting to get in.

          A couple of years ago, the Star-Ledger's Munchmobile had pretty good things to say . . .
