The is some of the best dim sum I have had. The price was very reasonable. The restaurant was very crowded with locals and tourists. The food came out very quickly. We all enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. There are vegetarian options.

Honestly this is the best I have ever had. Ask the waitress what she recommends and you will not go wrong. We literally ordered everything. Try the appetizer that has beef and like soup in it. It is fantastic!

Try the turnip cakes and the string beans. Shu mai was different than I'm used to, but fantastic! My family loved the shrimp dumplings so much we had to order more. My husband was ecstatic about the prices!

Dined here while visiting Philly's Chinatown, as research proved this is one of the best in Chinatown. Very good Dim Sum here, with reasonable prices. I especially enjoyed the soup dumplings. Chinese fare, such as the lo mein and chicken and broccoli over white rice,...More

So perhaps my visit to China has forever ruined me for Dim Sum in the states, but I just found this place so average. The dim sum was not bad, but certainly nothing special. Tried several different items. The service is mediocre and the establishment...More

This is Dim Sum Garden's 3rd disgusting inspection this year, yet the glowing reviews still pop up on Yelp & Tripadvisor. When I try to post reviews with verbatim cut & pastes FROM THE ACTUAL INSPECTION REPORTS the reviews are quickly removed. Can someone please explain this?
