Chinese
Dim sum, meaning "a touch of heart", is a style of Cantonese cuisine, prepared as bite-sized portions, akin to tapas. Opened in 1920 as New York City Chinatown's first dim sum restaurant, the Philadelphia outpost opened in 2015. In addition to southern Chinese cuisine, a full bar with handcrafted cocktails and beers on tap offer a full dining experience. Also, private party bookings are available with karaoke.

    Prompt seating and our waiter was nice. Food came out sporadically which is expected except some took much, much longer like the red bean paste buns. We also ordered a second, much smaller round of food and that was just amazingly slow to come out. We were given our check and then when the receipt from payment came out, it was a different amount on there. The food was good. The spicy wontons were not spicy but still good. Our waiter kept forgetting things after we asked and our one and only soda came to our table at the very end of the meal. We’d go back on a day where there’s nothing happening at the convention center so there’s a little more street parking.

    Great service for a large party of 10 on a Friday evening. We were seated in their downstairs space which was perfect for our party.

    We had a good meal, the food was pretty good for downtown Chinese. The dishes were interesting and the flavors were good. Service was OK and it’s a bit of a tight spot but not a bad choice

    When a customer comes in the least you could do is acknowledge them. I understand that it was packed but if thats the case then you should manage your staff better. I waited 5 minutes before I was even acknowledged. The food was great though and service is usually better than what I experienced today.

    Nam Wah is great. If you want really good DimSum this is the place. Actually bigger tables would be a good idea.

    Nom Wah was absolutely delicious. Both their pan fried dumplings as well as their pork soup dumplings were the best I’ve ever had. We did not order a single thing we didn’t enjoy, although the General Tso’s tofo could be given a bit more time to marinate in the sauce to truly capture the flavor. Overall an absolutely incredible meal. Service wasn’t *fantastic*but was on par with what I’ve experienced in general in Chinatown and Philly in general, so it is nothing to complain about.
