    never been personally but i"ve heard excellent things about the Dim Sum carts at Sunny Palace on Route 18. They only do it on Sat and Sundays.....old school style

      Yep, Sunny Palace. Been there numerous times when I lived in North Brunswick. Not able to get there as often now that I am in West Windsor.

      If you want to drive a bit further, Wonder Seafood in Edison. However, they are always packed so unless you have a party of 5 or 8, you'll end up sharing a table.

        Wife and I both prefer Wonder Seafood--definitely worth the drive.

          in between the 3, this is how i will rank them:
          1. Wonder Seafood - by far the best food but the location is not nice.
          2. Sunny Palace - dim sum is so-so but the location and service is better than the other two.
          Distant 3rd. Crown Palace - only consider if the other two options don't work for you.
