The best dim sum outside of Chinatown! Expect a crowd, but fear not--service is swift.

Come early for dim sum. Come late for family style dinners. Lobster plate is good. Recommend pan fried rice noodles with Chinese broccoli

Addictive Dim Sum – This is the best alternative to the South Side's Chinatown, this North Side gem gets our vote for affordable addictive dim sum! Usually no wait + Dim Sum served and delivered any time of the day or night!. My friends & I have made this our official "Lunch Spot". We want to try other places but keep coming back. The food is great for the price and it's affordable enough to try any item on the cart!

I've read the reviews and have to agree with some, yes the wait staff lacks English skills and the restaurant is showing its age, the vinyl chairs & tables with plastic liners are tacky - but we say who cares- keep your eyes are on the dim sum carts & you'll forget the decor! In addition the menu is great, with a large variety of Mandarin and Cantonese dishes. We have not had a bad experience in 5 years! The place is clean and has free parking too!

Ornate, worn-in Chinese banquet hall is an Uptown favorite for dim sum. – The Scene
Statues of dragons and giant gold Buddhas at the entrance hint at opulence, but the expansive, second-floor banquet hall is showing its age. Tattooed rocker types, couples and families, unconcerned by artifice, overlook the vinyl chairs and round tables topped with plastic liners. All eyes are on the dim sum carts, which are pushed around every few minutes by quiet servers who are all business.

The Food
An alternative to the South Side's Chinatown, this Argyle spot gets crowds for its cheap, addictive dim sum. Unlike places along Archer, however, the wait is often shorter or non-existent. Selections include cut-up drunken chicken that takes tangy notes from a soy-based sauce, and zesty barbecued pork inside white fluffy buns. Flavorful shu mai, steamed dumplings stuffed with ground chicken or pork, are petite treats. Chewy baby shrimp are wrapped in a spinach skin, while the Shanghai soup dumplings have more meat than broth inside.

Dim Sum in a Big Group – The best place for dim sum on the north side. The upstairs is huge and often a little noisy, as befits a real Cantonese dim sum restaurant. Be sure to try the Chinese broccoli, the shrimp dumplings and the turnip cake (not sweet but savory and available from the mobile grill) and sticky rice under clear, glass bowls. Staff speaks English (generally). Just ask them to uncover whatever they're offering. It's better the larger the group.
