Best Dim Sum in Flushing?

JT | Jun 27, 2004 11:09 PM

Hi, a DC hound here trying to plan a weekend trip. I'm looking for the best traditional dim sum available. So no Dim-Sum-a-Go-Go. We've been to Ping's & Jing Fong in Manhattan Chinatown on previous trips. The size of Jing Fong didn't bother us [kind of entertaining, actually], but Ping's seemed to have higher quality food. Looking for high quality & good selection -- I can get adequate dim sum in DC, but usually a pretty limited variety.

The boards seem to agree that Flushing has the best dim sum [over Manhattan Chinatown and I don't know what other competition]. This board seems to opine that Gum Fung in Flushing is the place to be, although some people are saying Fay-Da. The "Best of" board seems to be saying Henry's Evergreen or Chiam. Can someone break down the differences between these places in detail? And maybe provide an address for Fay-Da? I think I've located Gum Fung on google.

Any help appreciated.
