There’s nothing more Chinese than gathering around a round table and indulging in little pots of dim sum.
And dim sum buffets make it possible for all the older people at the table to pile your plate with food without having to incur additional costs.
That’s probably why they are such a popular choice for family gatherings, or hungry groups of friends. But before going, don’t forget to check out ongoing promotions!
