Three families-12 people. We called to make a reservation, but when we got there we were not on the list. However, they got us seated within 10 minutes. We were seated in private little room with a giant table that fit all of us perfectly! So fun. We ordered about 25 plates and they were all really good. I was... More

My first time trying dim sum. Since first time, have no basis of comparison. Went with friends who love this restaurant. My friend did most of the ordering and i will say that everything we tried was very good. They pace the food nicely so you don't feel rushed. We made reservations, which they honored and took us to our... More

After battling traffic for what seemed forever, I was a little disappointed. First off, there were no push carts. Service was very slow although larger tables were getting lots of attention. I'm used to having a variety of sauces with dim sum, sadly there was none offered. The dim sum menu was limited compared to what I had read about... More

During walk through ChinaTown in Chicago, stumbled across this new restaurant, the Phoenix. Atmosphere was awesome (bright lights, tables galore) and the wait time was about 15 minutes. Food was delicious and wait staff very friendly and attentive. Would recommend this in highly!!

After a transition period with the new owners, the dim sum has been good and very consistent. Usually crowded on weekdays as there is a 30% discount. The dim sum menu has lunch dishes on the reverse but no discount. They are good to very good and the barbecue items are not bad. Service is still sub-par. The dinner menu... More

I've been craving this for awhile and this place definitely got 5 stars. The shrimps where big and fresh, the sauce amazing. Órdered some dim sum but the lobster sauce was my first choice and decided to finish it so I was too full for the dim sum.

Enjoying dim sum in Chicago's Chinatown was a great way for a family gathering or a good start to the day. Nice dining room and offers a variety of dim sum dishes. We enjoyed the shrimp crepe, bbq pork crepe, shrimp dumpling, chicken feet, turnip cake in xo sauce, pan fried turnip, spring rolls and Malaysian sponge cake. Paid parking... More

When you walk in you will see that this place is very popular with the local Chinese people. There were many Chinese families here on Saturday morning. The dim sum was authentic, very tasty and inexpensive. It's hard to go wrong at about $4-$5 p plate order. We had ribs, pot stickers, shumai, shrimp roll and many other yummy plates.... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
