no consensus on Oakland dim sum?

So, I've read all the threads on Oakland Chinatown dim sum, and am having trouble finding recommendations: I understand to stay way from Jade Villa - haven't been there in years, myself, but the last time I was there my wife collapsed from a gallstone attack from the sheer greasiness of it and had to spend 4 days in the hospital. Stay away from Peony - overrated and overpriced - got it. Tin's has moved; the place that took it over is not so great. Well, I know where NOT to go - but what about where to go? I want to hit an Oakland chinatown spot for good, varied, not too expensive dim sum with 5 other adults and 2 kids this coming Sunday morning around 10:30 or 11; 2 of these folks are sheltered dim sum and general ethnic food virgins and I don't want to freak them out too bad, but one of us speaks Chinese and I'm open to trying anything new ... Any ideas?
