Chang’s Hong Kong Cuisine

Chang’s is exactly how you want your dim sum house to be. It has a faux-pagoda exterior and a no-nonsense interior with roving dim sum carts steaming fresh from the kitchen. It’s a point-and-eat operation with little translation in between, but really, who needs to chew the fat when you can chew chicken feet instead? 4670 S. Decatur Blvd., 702-362-3663.

KJ Dim Sum

Hone in on dim sum delicacies at this Rio favorite. The dining room clocks in at 4,600 square feet, offering plenty of room for carts to navigate, all bearing steamers of authentic Chinese dishes, from noodles to dumplings. 3700 W. Flamingo Road, 702-777-2333.

Mott 32

The Palazzo’s artful homage to Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine recently rolled out an all-you-can-eat dim sum brunch where you order off a menu instead of a rolling cart. Your patience is rewarded by dishes plated so beautifully, they’ll be filling your Insta feed in no time. Palazzo, 702-607-3232.

Orchids Garden

Orchids Garden on West Sahara is one of those places in the Valley that feels like it’s always been there. With all-day dim sum served 365 days a year, it’s a reliable and comforting go-to whenever the mood strikes. 5485 W. Sahara Ave., 702-631-3839.

Ping Pang Pong

Nestled amid the bustle of the Gold Coast Casino, the award-winning Ping Pang Pong is a gold-accented oasis of steamed buns, glistening noodles and fluffy dumplings. How beloved is this place among locals? There’s always a line at reception. But the wait is never long, and it’s always worth it. 4000 W. Flamingo Road, 702-247-8136.

Tim Ho Wan

The Cantonese-style restaurant, which originated in Hong Kong, has a big following in Asia. It landed at the Palms this year, bringing to the Valley such favorites as barbecue pork buns and fried turnip cakes, along with Vegas-only offerings like shrimp toast truffle foie gras. Palms, 702-990-8888.
