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!

Dumplings were delicious! Crispy noodle dish was not my favorite, tasted like weak ramen noodles. This place is CASH ONLY, it does not state that anywhere when you enter and they don't tell you that when seating you. Kinda explains the ATM in the front...More

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 restaurant was recommended by a local and he was right! Food was perfectly cooked with subtle flavors and good portions. A substantial variety of dishes and the prices were very reasonable. We'd go back next time we visit Philly.

Dim sum was OK but not outstanding. We had some shrimp eggrolls, pork and chive fried dumplings, pork steamed dumplings, and shrimp on a stick. Everything was OK but not as flavorful as one might have liked. The selection of dim sum on offer was...More

So yummy stopped here twice while in Philly. Authentic Dim Sum - no carts. Made fresh to order. Busy place, cash only. Soup dumplings were my favorite. A much better choice than wonton soup (pretty mushy wontons). Service we ok. Fried dumplings were better than...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?
