best dim sum in St Louis?

We have just moved back to St Louis and would like to know what is currently the best place in St Louis for Chinese dim sum. (We do not care if the restaurant has carts or not. We just want good dim sum.)

  1. An extremely volatile situation as chefs move like the wind in such places. I would currently send folks to LuLu on Olive or Mandarin House in Overland, but YMMV and several other hounds will possibly have more current news.

      We like Lu Lu's the best. Others have told me they liked Mandarin House better. We tried it and did not like it as much but the quality and place was nice.
      I do suggest trying to go early to Lu Lu's. They tend to run out of some of my faves as the say goes on.

    2. I too vote for LuLu's, although it's been a while since I was last there. the bao was great, the siu mai and har gow are a little on the large/unwieldy side, but the flavors and textures were right.

      that whole stretch of Olive bears further exploration (Hanley to I-170)

      1. What do you think about the dim sum at the Wei Hong Seafood Restaurant? We had a very nice dinner there for the Chinese New Year.

          Way too long since I had dim sum there for me to give an accurate assessment. Go visit and tell us.
