Dim Sum Dinner in Philly

Any recommendations for quality dim sum for a night out? Open to any neighborhood in Philadelphia, prefer to be in town and not suburbs/NJ. Searching the boards and the internet didn't provide much beyond a dim sum brunch reco. TIA!

      I believe Joy Tsin Lau stops serving dim sum at 3:00 PM.

    2. Not haute cuisine but Dim Sum Garden would be a good place for food.. little lacking on ambience.

      1. Dim Sum Garden on 11th between Arch and Filbert is THE PLACE. Get the soup dumplings and the 'shumai'(they are sticky rice/mushroom). Also, try some of the steamed buns...and anything that looks interesteing.

        This is a very special place. They make their own dough, and everything is fresh, made to order.....
