“Sum Good, Sum Bad”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Our family of four decided to try Dim Sum Garden in its new location on King St. The decor and everything else looked exactly as it did years ago when Grand Garden closed its doors at that location. Big and spacious, it is a good location if you have active little ones that want to walk around and explore. The food portions were generous and everything was delicious, especially the beef chow fat. Like most Chinese restaurants the beef was very tough and chewy in all of the dishes. Service was good but language was an issue when ordering, if you stick to just the numbers it's fine. All in all sum things were bad, but overall mostly good!

“Order by number”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We love the food from the Dim Sum Garden on Pembina Hwy and order quite often, most recently on July 22nd.

Food is always fresh & delicious. Portions are a good size. We have only ever ordered to take out but the restaurant is always very busy when we pick up indicating they do a very good dine in business as well as take out.

My only warning here is that very few and when I say very few I mean next to none of the staff speak english very well. To eliminate the language barrier problem, ensure you order by number.

I recommend the lemon chicken, satay shrimp and the sizzling beef & chicken in black bean & garlic sauce. My only complaint is that the wontons are overpriced at almost $5 for an order, they don't contain any meat like other restaurants - just deep fried dough as is the wonton soup which only contained about 4 wontons. Not very good value for the price of the appies but the food portions are excellent for the price.

“Nothing special about Dim Sum Garden”
Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

Fallen from being the best Dim Sum in Winnipeg to average. Service has never been good and after waiting 20 minutes for a non- chef special (2-3 times happy hour rates) I left. Won't be back!
