Shared dim sum with friends at TC choys, read the review which were not good, but thought we give it a try. It was really bad. Every piece of Dim Sum was cold and tasteless . They were served in stainless Steel basket instead of bamboo. No Chinese people to be found , that should have been an indication that... More

Best dim sum around. I’ve been here numerous times and everything has always been of the highest quality & prepared to perfection. If you have room for desert make sure to order the sesame balls. Wait staff is always professional and friendly.

Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and authentic variety of dishes here. Dim Sum types abound. The decor is upscale for a Chinese restaurant. Tasteful not tacky. We return about every 3-4 months as we do not live in Tampa. Parking is tight.

Wonderful service and super fresh dim sum. The sticky rice is always the best and the selection of dim sum is just as good as the best places in NY!

I have traveled the world and eaten Dim Sum everywhere and T.C. Choy stands alongside the best. We have been going there for years and the Dim Sum is consistently outstanding.

A came here with co-workers for lunch. I didn't "get" to pay but the online prices state dim sum is typically $4 per dish. Typical dishes come with 3 pieces. Overall, I'd classify this dim sum as very good, yet also typical. But getting what you expect can be a great thing. I really enjoyed the variety we had. The... More

Lunch with Dim sum and fried rice was very good. Not the best I've ever had but a nice surprise to find in Tampa. Service was excellent. The only suggestion I have is to consider pricing the Dim sum differently. All dishes at 5 dollars but 3 spring rolls shouldn't cost as much as shark fin. 3 4 and 5... More

This is the fourth time that we had Dim Sum in TC Choy's. While the range of options does not compare the the best Dim Sum places in New York and Boston, the quality of the food was excellent and we had a great meal.

This restaurant needs to standardize its menu pricing. Their website menu prices are average for an Asian "bistro", but their prices in the restaurant are quite high. We received two different menus on our recent visit. For one seafood dish, the prices ranged from $16 to $24, depending upon which menu was used. Of course, we were charged the higher... More
