Sunday Dim Sum

It's been a while since we last visited and luckily we didn't have much of a wait and got a table within 5 minutes. They were very busy. Cart service and everything was good and fresh. The Sticky Rice and the Har Gow were exceptionally good. Friendly servers.

There are a few other places that offer "dim sum" but none that offer the truly unique dining experience with the carts full of food. We drive an additional 20 minutes to go here instead of the one closer to us. The difference....we drive longer but the food is "instant gratification", the other, we drive less but then have to...

We go only for the Dim Sum on the weekends since good Chinese entree dishes are available in many places elsewhere. The service is efficient, not chatty unless you speak Mandarin and the Dim Sum is respectable given the area has very few places that offer it.

To start with a statement: Really there is no good Chinese restaurants in Columbia/Ellicott City area. Now, Asian Court: one good thing is that they serve dimsum during weekend. Now the dimsum is probably factory made and the quality is so so. But if you don't want to drive for an hour and wait another hour, this is ok. They... More

We have enjoyed Dim Sum here a number of times over the years and even thought recently that it is better compared to what we find in Wheaton or Gaithersburg. I do long for Red Pearl in Columbia....HOWEVER, our last trip was not so good. Food carts were far between coming; supply of selection on the carts was short; attempting... More

We stop for dinner or carry out two or three times a month. We find the stall friendly and welcoming. The entrees that we prefer are always good with large portions. We almost always have an "on the house" appetizer or dessert. We keep going back and are never disapointed.

A menu that sort of explains what everything is. Food is outstanding. Service a little spotty. Prices terrific. We had a smooth conversation bolstered by good food. Got it done

I was skeptical at first because of the prior reviews and the fact that I've never heard of this place. However, I left pleasantly surprised about Asian Court. The 4/5 rating is inflated. Not sure if Asian Court would garner even a 2/5 in larger cities, but for Baltimore and the surrounding suburbs, you bet this is the best dim... More

I asked the guy for a number for a table (for one) at least 3 times and each time he told me to wait. On the fourth time he claimed he already gave me one. Finally I got a number. I can understand seating tables of 3 or more ahead of me, but when seating tables of two that came... More

With trepidation (due to some earlier bad reviews at TripAdvisor and Yelp), I agreed to have lunch with my sister at the Asian Court on Nov 14, 2014. We both had a hard time finding it because it's located towards the back of a shopping center. (Look for Home Depot and Einstein Bagel on West Route 40 for your landmarks).... More
