Dim Sum in Philly

Any suggestions as to the best place to go for Dim Sum. I am planning for a Saturday, I am rookie for Philly Chinatown. I read that Ocean Harbor is good and I read that it is only so-so,

    I'm not expert, but my Asian friends prefer Ocean Harbor and Ocean City. They avoid Joy Tsin Lau. I've been to OH and OC and I enjoy both.

      Dim Sum Garden on 11th St near the bus station is very good -- good Shanghai soup dumplings.

      i've also heard ocean harbor is the place to go...though i still haven't been, the line is just too damn long. i've been to joy tsin lau (across the street) twice now and it's been satisfying.
