Dim Sum Dinner in Philly

malbec Feb 27, 2009 09:34 AM

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.

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

        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.....
