KJ Dim Sum?

Disneyfreak Aug 30, 2013 08:26 AM

I am heading to Vegas next week on business. I've been craving dim sum and I heard that KJ Dim Sum offers it during the day. It is any good? How are the prices? I am traveling with a coworker who had never had dim sum so I thought I would introduce her. We won't have a car and I don't want to spend a fortune on a taxi. We can get to the Rio using the Rio/Paris/Harrahs shuttle

    Best I've found after 2 years here, after sampling just about every other dim sum restaurant in Chinatown, Ping Pang Pong and Great Eastern in Henderson.

      I'm sorry -- so you're saying that it is better than Ping Pang Pong and Great Eastern?

      How are the prices?

        I think the prices are quite reasonable given the quality and ambiance.

      Hi,

      We've tried several places in Vegas for dim sum and our favorites are Ping Pang Pong (in the Gold Coast) and Orchid Garden. Orchid Garden is traditional cart service, you will need a car or cab to get there, though, it's west on Sahara. At Ping Pang Pong, they also have carts or you can order off a menu, the selection is a little more limited, but it is very good and they have great tea.

        Do you know if Ping Pang Pong has soup dumplings?

          My memory of the menu is rusty, but I don't think so...

            Last time I was there, no. But I think it's usually advisable to go to a Shanghai restaurant for them, anyway. I can't ever remember having good XLB's in a Cantonese or HK restaurant. You might try 1900 Asian Cuisine, China Mama, or Bund Shanghai for Xiao Long Bao
