Dim Sum restaurants in Mississauga?

Are there ANY good Dim Sum restaurants in Mississauga? Meeting some relatives on the weekend who are staying in Oakville and who don't want to travel far. (Couldn't convince them to make the pilgrimage to Richmond Hill :( )

    I highly recommend Summit Garden at Dundas and Winston Churchill. Busy during lunchtime which means the stuff on the carts is always fresh. I like Tremendous at 3am, but Summit for a real dim sum meal.

      Just to confirm that Summit has the carts not just a menu? I much prefer the cart choices as seems fresher and i can view my choices not just from memory.

        Summit does have carts.

      Emerald Chinese around Hurontario & Eglinton I believe has Dim Sum, as does Tremendous! at Burnhamthorpe & Mavis but I don't reccomend Tremendous, the place is filthy

        Summit is probably the best compromise.

        BTW, duckdown, why the conjecture about Emerald serving dimsum if you'd actually ever been there?

        Summit and Emerald are both very good for cart service. For order off the menu - Perfect Kitchen is excellent as well. With menu service you can choose what you want and have it come out all hot.

          Happy Jade, at Dixie and Dundas. I like them better than Summit Gardens.

            I concur with mogo, Happy Jade is excellent but I thought they only do dim sum on Sunday.

            I have been going to the Emerald for years, its one of my favorate Dim Sum places anywhere in Toronto.

              After 3 visits in the past month, I'm thinking something is decidedly "off" at Emerald. The clamour and noise level in the place really can distract attention from what's often very pedestrian dim sum. I'd not been after a couple of years and some less-than-stellar siu mai but a friend insisted and I tried it against better judgment. Most baskets' contents were luke-warm and often leaden; the stone-cold wu gok was plain nasty. Haven't tried Summit because Emerald is closer but will soon!

              Summit Gardens, have been twice now and love it. Fresh steaming hot items, the girls are really helpful. And the wait even on the busiest of days is very quickly dealt with.
              Love it.
