We were 6 diners and we ordered a huge variety of small plates. Especially good were the ribs, soup dumplings and the cold sesame noodles.

We went downtown philly for Dim Sum. Couldn’t pick a favorite dumpling. They were all so yummy. Can’t wait to take some of our friends and go back.

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.

This was a delightful dining experience. The food was very good, tasty, well cooked, and a short wait. The mixed drinks were made well. The services was also very good with very polite servers and SA's. We will come back again to try more dishes.

We love dim sum and decided to try Dim Sum House. Food was very good. Dim sum was larger than we typically see at other restaurants, which was nice. We will definitely be back.

We are visiting Philadelphia for the first time from Oregon and decided to try Dim Sum House by Jane' s we had not had dim sum before. The waiter was very helpful in us through the menu to decide what would be best for us. We had a very good dinner and a very pleasant experience!

We went to this restaurant for a friends night out. The food was great and there were a lot of options to choose from. However, service was poor/lacking. For a group of 6 people, 20% gratuity was automatically added to our bill. We did not feel that the service was worth 20%. A lot of items were missing from our initial order and the server was not engaging and attentive to our dining experience. It was a shame because it could have been an excellent dining experience.

My husband and I wanted to see with our own eyes what our friends have been raving about. It is definitely a hot spot for the college scene with the pool table. So it was a bit loud. However, it was not overwhelming. We both really enjoyed the food. Especially the dumplings. They were soft and delightful in texture.

A tasty, attractive place to eat but felt incredibly rushed! If we were to go again I would ask that Dim Sum, soup and entrees not be brought to the table at the same time.

We had such a great time this past Saturday with two friends who had never been there before, that I've reserved again for this coming Friday, for sure one of my most favorite restaurants in the city and possibly the very best for dim sum..

First time here on a lunch date with my wife. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance of the dining room even for lunch. Everything was great from our waiter to the freshness of the food and how quickly everything was brought out to us. We will definitely be returning.

We ordered 3 dim sum items and one fried rice entree. The entree arrived first. Pretty bland without adding the soy sauce at the table, which was very salty; they didn't have a reduced sodium one. Two dim sum items were steamed the other just had a plain shrimp. The vegetable fried roll was fine though so hot it burned mouth. We should have been warned. Beer came out late. All in all, not the best dim sum for introducing that cuisine to our friend.

The service was ok, food was tasty however something was not gluten free from the gluten free menu. Both my husband and daughter have celiac and both were sick after we ate at Dim Sum House by Jane G. And as that was the only meal they ate that day where there was any question about ingredients, seems clear to us some gluten was in their meal.

Our server wasn’t paying attention to our order and our needs. The problem is they have a recommended tip as soon as you receive the bill. A tip that he did not deserve!
