“Tasty food at fair price.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I'm a regular with family (once or twice a month) in the evenings and I can never find fault with the food, food quality, or friendly service.

The service although friendly can be a little slow at busy times in the evening, but the food is always tasty and we like it. Not tried the takeaway service but phone is usually busy for orders.

Happy that they slightly increased their prices a few months ago, rather than switch to cheaper ingredients.

We have NOT yet had a bad experience when eating in at this place. We don't mind the wait when it's busy, as it's worth it. We will continue to eat here, and plan to go this Sunday if it's open and not closed for New Year (Can't remember when they close).

I recommend Dim Sum Inn 100%.

I like that you can order anything from the menu, and switch between starters and mains at will, depending on what you like, and it's all brought freshly cooked to your table. This is better than queuing up and spooning food onto plate and going back to table. You don't know how long some food has been left out in open and if it's hot enough at some other places I have tried.

“Worst takeaway ever”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Ordered food online. Beef curry no veg, came packed with veg. The beef was tough, dry and chewy. The chips were full of black bits, limp and soggy. The rice was a clump, tasteless.
Quite honestly the worst Meal I've ever had. Couldn't even eat it, beyond disgusting.

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

After being seated we waited 30 mins for our wine to come to table, this was because there was only one waitress for 6 tables and answering the phones for takeaway. After another waitress eventually arrived things improved slightly. Dim sum inn also does not provide dim sum! Which when we pointed it out to the waitress all she could say was 'Ye its a bit misleading' a my partner and I were looking for dim sum we were very disappointed. we ordered the buffet menu instead and it took a long time to come out, the food was ok but not worth the money, after the bill came to around £75 we felt cheated. The atmosphere was terrible also. Will not be returning.
