Dim Sum House by Jane G'sDim Sum House by Jane G's

Dim Sum | University City, Philadelphia

We were seated in a quiet booth, exactly what we requested. The wooden table was clean and the server gave us just enough time to look over the menu. He knew just when to come over and take our order which came out within fifteen minutes, served hot and fresh. The food was delicious, perfectly seasoned (not too salty). We got dim sum standards including steamed pork buns (cha siu baau), steamed shrimp dumplings (ha gaau), steamed pork and shrimp siu maai, pork soup dumplings, and sticky rice with pork in banana leaves, along with sweet egg custard tarts (daan taat). The only disappointment we had was with a couple of other patrons who were playing billiards and using profanities. I'm not sure if that could be addressed by an employee, but it would have made the evening exceptional. More

What a great place! Everything was wonderful, from the excellent service from the moment you walk in the door to the setting and the food. The music is low and they have different rooms, each with its own atmosphere. Everything we are was wonderful and a fantastic value: dishes are all very reasonably priced and just the right portion size. We went for our wedding anniversary on 4/13/18 and our waiter was great (Santo?). They even made this wonderful dessert plate for us...it was such a great surprise! More

Busy but cozy restaurant with a big menu and great service. Had the lamb Bolognese which was spicy with tender chunks of lamb and perfectly cooked pasta. Just enough sauce to moisten add flavor but not overload the dish. More
