“Great Dimsum in Las Vegas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We had dimsum for dinner on a Saturday night at Orchids Garden. They serve dimsum all day from 10:30am – 10:30pm. Since they don't take reservations, we decided to go at 5:30pm – early enough before it gets too crowded.

Waitresses walk around with carts filled with plates of dimsum, and they stop at each table. You pay per plate by category. As you take plates, the watresses stamp your food bill:
A ($2.30) – our favorites are the Steamed BBQ Bun and for dessert: Baked Sweet Cream Bun and Red Bean Sesame Ball.
B ($3.10) – our favorites are Shrimp Hargow, Baked BBQ Pork Pie, Shrimp Pasted Eggplant (make sure you get the sauce), Pan Fried Chives Dumpling, Shrimp with Rice Noodle, and for dessert: Mango or Coconut Pudding (with sweetened condensed milk.)
C ($4.15) – Sugar Cane Shrimp
D ($6.15) – Chinese Broccoli, Seaweed Salad, and the Chow Mein.

The standouts are the Chow Mein (even though $6.15 is over-priced for noodles), the Steamed BBQ Bun is the best deal, Pan Fried Chives Dumplings were our favorite, and the best dessert is the Baked Sweet Cream Bun! Although we love the Seaweed Salad, the portion size is so small, it's not worth $6.15.

Seven of us ate everything we wanted for a total of $82 plus tax. That's a pretty good deal! This is our favorite dimsum place in Vegas!

“Yummm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We've eaten here twice in the last couple months. Wanted dim sum somewhere where they served dim sum all day. They DO! There for late lunch fisrt time then second time went for late dinner and ordered eggplant with black bean sauce- AMAZING! The brocoli beef was also delicious with strong ginger flavor! Fresh and hot and quick, wasn't too busy;)

“a quick comparison”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

recently reviewed east ocean dim sum in henderson and suggested it is as good as orchids garden. Decided to return to orchids garden next day to confirm my feelings. We got a repeat of what we had at East Ocean and were able to compare "apples to apples". The food is very similar. A little more dough on the shar shu bao. more filling in sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf. shu mai similar. chive pan fried dumplings had no gristle (east oceans had big hunks of inedible gristle in them). Orchids garden is less expensive $17.50 compared to $25.00 at East Ocean.The dinner entrees are $1 to $3 less at Orchids Garden. If I am starting from henderson area I would go to East Ocean, but from downtown area it would be Orchids Garden. Both are great and both are away from the casinos and the casino crowd

“For fast service and dim sum all day and night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

For variety and a yen for all day and night dim sum, Orchids is the place but drink lots of bo-leh tea to cut the grease as there is alot of oil used in dim sum so it might be greasy for your stomach. But they serve dim sum until 10:30 at night! Good variety like chicken and duck feet, shrimp dumplings (ha gow), siew mi (pork balls), jook, shark fin dumpling, fried taro, so if you want dim sum and quick, they have fast service and it's hot.

“Best Dim Sum in Vegas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Located just off the Strip, Orchids Garden offers the best Dim Sum in Las Vegas all day. The food is very good and so is the service. My wife and I eat lunch there for $30 total including iced tea and we bring the leftovers home. Often we are the only non-Asians in the restaurant.... a good sign for sure!
