We tried this location for lunch Dim Sum. The service was great, but the food was average. We will go back to their Chinatown location. We requested a booth via our reservation. The lady at the front desk did not even try to provide a booth when we reminded her. The waitress was very professional and efficient.

We were sat within minutes and our dim sum goodies came out immediately after we ordered. Everything was so tasty, exactly what we were craving. We got several varieties of dumplings, scallion pancakes, and dan dan noodles. We like spicy stuff so I was in heaven with the dan dan, chile oil wontons and extra spicy pork soup dumplings, although to many sensitive pallets it could've been a little too spicy. Loved it!

Dim sum to the next level! Entrees on point as well. Made to order deliciousness, great vibes. Beautiful bar in the main dining, pool table to enjoy while you wait for your food or just to chill with friends. We travel from NJ just to eat here.

We came here with a group of 8 friends and had a great time. The food is delicious, especially the dim sum. The atmosphere for a group of this size is fantastic since they have large round tables with a big lazy susan in the middle for easy sharing. I will definitely come back and bring friends.

After being in the restaurant business on and off for 25 years, my girls and I try to go out on holidays whenever we can. We had never had Dim Sum before, so we decided to do it on Christmas this year! We had such an amazing time! Our server was great in explaining to us what the dishes were and making suggestions on what to order. There were five of us and we did multiple rounds of Dim Sum, and two entrées that we shared, and it was perfect!

Our dim sum selections were good but our entrees missed the mark. The sizzling beef ribs were tough and fatty. The chicken and broccoli just average. Previous meal was perfection. So very disappointed.

YUM. I used to go to Jane G's on Chestnut in CC and was upset when it closed. It is great to find this new one, and one devoted to different kinds of Dim Sum.

Dim Sum House by Jane G’s is probably my favorite place to go in the city for dinner. The service can be slow at times, but the food outshines any inconvenience by the wait. The soup dumplings are AMAZING and so are the dan dan noodles. 100% recommend to go.

I had the pleasure of dining here with my best friend and it is by far one of the best restaurants I’ve been too this year and one of my favorites. Please if you’re in the city stop by here you would be missing out if you didn’t and one suggestion try the Dan Dan noodles !!

One of the best Chinese cuisine meals that I have had in Philadelphia. Our initial reaction was: What, this is University City, not Chinatown !
I don't recall a restaurant of any type that I've had more helpful servers. Their recommendations were outstanding and their description of the various dishes were spot on. Hats off to a wonderfully run establishment.
PS: I read some other reviews that thought the prices were a bit high. There were 4 of us, all adults and the total bill was under $80.00 and we had to take some home. If that's too steep for your wallet, I suggest missing a couple of Lattes and then splurge. You won't regret it.

Hostess was extremely rude and didn’t say hello, made eye contact, just grunted when we said we have a reservation, grabbed the menu and started walking away and we didn’t even know whether to follow or not. Then she flopped the menu on a table and walked off. She was a dark brunette and skinny young woman, and the reason I’m giving a description hoping the manager will retrain because hands down the most atrocious welcome and that was the first impression of the restaurant. Frankly, I’m confused why she is put at that job or applied for the job. However aside from her, our waitress was remarkable and gave us incredible informative and friendly service. The food was great, we had all Shanghai dim sum including the spicy shrimp dumplings which we loved washing them down with perfectly balanced cocktails. I love the lychee martinis. Regardless please talk to the hostess. I almost feel like walking out as never met anyone so rude. I’m glad I didn’t as I did love the rest of the experience.

Dim Sum House has the best selection of dim sim and they are all good. I had a Cantonese sampler with 2 types and dumplings and 2 types of buns. The restaurant is large and seating is comfortable.

We had a great table for four near the bar in the main dining room. We ordered way too much food. We sampled/ordered four different plates of dim sum all of which were spectacular. We each got a different entree, which created several “doggie bags”. We should have split two entrees. Nevertheless, the food was great as were the cocktails and beer selection. It was a little more expensive than your average Chinese food but worth the drive into the city and extra money. We would definitely return.

I like this place a lot but this visit somethings were off. The wrong food was brought out, our water was warm, our waiter who we've had before and (is cool) admitted to having a hangover. The short ribs wee bland. I will return and I do recommend this restaurant I'm just willing to chalk it up to a bad day.

Among the best Asian dining I have tasted. The vegetables, fish and sauces are excellent. The scallion pancakes were delicious and crisp. We had five dishes and all were superb. The wine selection is also superb.

Jane G's Dim Sum House was seating and serving diners amongst a series of ceiling leaks, buckets on the floor, and other puddles.
