If you are looking for truly authentic and yummy Dim Sum... this is the place for you! Also try the soups. This is the place where all my asian friends flock to on the weekends. You will see multiple generations dining here on Saturdays and Sundays... You know it must be good, authentic Chinese food if you are the only irish person in the joint!

Service is ultra slow. Food is just Ok, nothing espectacular. Decor is outdated, which I wouldn't had care if food was decent. Best bet is to go somewhere else.

Dim sum everyday -- carts on Sunday when we where there, but if you don't see what you want on the cart, be sure to ask. The shrimp and chive dumplings are not to be missed and we had to ask for them. On weekend mornings there is duck, chicken, pork to go from a stand at the front - my kids can eat char shu pork like candy. Area is a bit desolate, but the parking lot was well-lit and busy.

-Awesome Dim Sum for brunch, with traditional carts all over the restaurant that carry food for customers to choose
-Good dinner and great seafood selection

Cleveland will never be mistaken for San Francisco or Toronto for places to get dim sum. But the LiWah certainly is a stand out when it comes to the push cart delicacies. Located in the Asia Plaza, in the heart of Cleveland's small but growing AsiaTown, the dim sum is just as much an experience as it is tasty. Best to come with a party of 6 to 8. You can continue to order from either the menu or directly off the tableside carts, pass around the choices and, ultimately, you will hit on one (or more) that meshes with your palate. Occasionaly you might get a surprise as some choices can be lost in translation, but that just increases the fun component. Dim sum and carts go together and, yes, you can get an order of chicken feet if, for no other reason, than to have your kids cringe as you munch on the gelatinous cartilage.
