Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant
2920 Central Ave, Charlotte, NC 28205
Okay so I spent eight (8) years in Sydney, Australia. Am married to an Asian and had ""dim sum"" almost every weekend. There is a very large population of Chinese in Sydney (they too have a Chinatown like San Francisco and NY). \r
I moved backed to the USA and we chose Greenville, SC - and I realized how much I missed my trips for ""dim sum"". We met another Asian couple who told us about this restaurant in Charlotte and said it was ""ok"". \r
My first impression was that they were not organized when greeting people (no real hostess) and just sat whoever walked up to them first. If I hadn't been assertive I would have been waiting quite some time.\r
They sat us in a part of the restaurant where the employees pushing the carts around didn't see (nor did they bother to look) so we had to call out for them to bring over the food to us so we could look. Everything was either luke warm or cold. The chicken feet (one of my favorites) was surprisingly good as was the stuffed eggplant. However everything else was below average. Nothing had a really ""fresh"" taste. The shrimp dumplings tasted frozen and they kept sticking to the other har gow since they were overcooked. \r
I would probably go on a weekend and right around 12pm so that it is as ""fresh"" as possible. If there isn't another dim sum restaurant around then I would go knowing not to expect much. For me (and I'm a picky eater) it would suffice. For the true Asian - not sure if you would be happy. \r
Who knows - maybe it was a ""bad day"".......it was New Years Day after all!
