This was our second visit to Dim Sum House in three months time. My group of friends enjoys the experience and the quality of the food. The concept is to enjoy dim sum throughout the day. The menu provides options for both ordering starters and entrees and enjoying a typical dim sum experience.
My friends and I have focused on the dim sum experience both times. The overall cost is quite reasonable. You leave feeling full and satisfied. The dim sum menu offers a very nice variety of choices. All of the food was tasty and we sampled everything from dumplings to congee to traditional Chinese broccoli.
The dishes are steadily brought out to the table until you signal the end has arrived. Unlike traditional dim sum you have to order off the menu based on pictures. They do not bring you a cart filled with steamer trays of selections. This does not detract from the overall experience. What you see is what you get.
Note that the friend shrimp balls are delicious, but incredibly steamy even after you cut them open and leave them sit. The bbq pork dumplings are fantastic as is typical at most dim sum restaurants. The congee dishes were all comforting and delicious.
This is not fine dining or a typical experience. It is great fun, though, and a refreshing change of pace.
