Empire Garden was the first dim sum restaurant I went to in Boston, and many of my friends can say the same. You go there, you get a dim sum experience with neat-o ambiance, and you peace out, like with all dim sum restaurants. However, a lot of the dim sum fare is just plain... okay. It'll fill you up and the prices are comparable, but the variety is less likely to wow you unless you bring along a token Cantonese friend who will find you the rarer stuff.
In short, Empire Garden is great for large parties and the newbie dim summer, but if you want a more adventurous dim sum experience, I'd look elsewhere in Chinatown for it.
