    I've actually never been to Hop Hing so I can't offer an opinion on it. When we order we usually get from Dim Sum in downtown. You can also eat there if you want. For a nicer dining experience there's also Avenue East. It does get quite noisy, though. Honestly I'd be just as happy with the food at Dim Sum but it depends what sort of dining experience you're looking for.

      We're taking someone who is in assisted living for lunch. A low noise level is important. I'll take a look at Dim Sum, thank you!

        Dim Sum is probably the best in downtown Cranford, nice people, good food. Everywhere else is inconsistent or just bad. (I find Avenue East to be highly overrated)

            Another vote for Dim Sum. I'd recommend the chicken in peach sauce.

                Thanks, everyone. Dim Sum worked out perfectly and we ordered the chicken in peach sauce and several other dishes. Our guest said, "I'll remember this meal for the next 4 weeks!" So, thank you again!
