The crackly skin attached to a juicy barbecue duck and a slab of “Macau” pork belly is like a primal call to fans of Cantonese-style roasted meats, and we’d recommend both, along with the perfectly cooked beans in the string bean “casserole” and the chubby rice noodles pan-fried in a lightly spicy XO sauce. But with extensive seafood offerings and an interesting dim sum lineup offered from early in the day to late in the evening, what we really recommend is going to the slick, contemporary dining room and choosing your own favorites.

Amazingly clean and fresh-tasting dim sum. If you've ever experienced Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong or now in NYC, I would say some of the items on the menu would rival the quality that you would get at THW. And unlike some typical Asian restaurants, the service was really great and we didn't feel rushed at all. We went during their off-peak hours and was seated immediately. Loved everything from their congee to the short-ribs, and the shumai! 


DIM SUM IS THE BEST! And this place is the best play for DIM SUM! I have been both to the loop location which is conveniently next to my house and the original in Chinatown for many years. At first i had to go with people to see what they ordered, but turns out you can order whatever you want and its all delicious. You do have to make sure you go during dim sum hours (usually NOT dinnertime). I also recommend the loop location for first timers as their menu is a little smaller so therefore a little less overwhelming in choosing items, as they've sort of picked the best ones already. I recommend turnip cakes, any of the steamed buns, the beef crepe, and the congee. That congee has saved my life on cold days. Highly highly highly recommend!


Ever since I moved to Chicago about a year ago, I've been dying to go out to eat in Chinatown. My friends picked MingHin kind of randomly and it was AMAZING. Seriously so delicious. We were brave and tried a little bit of everything (dumplings, pork belly, squid, jellyfish) and nothing disappointed. On top of the delicious food, it was really well priced and service was efficient. It's a huge restaurant, so we only had to wait 20 mins. I definitely recommend it!

MingHin is my go-to dim sum spot in Chinatown. Get a big group together and just try all of the dumplings--you won't be disappointed. 


Hands down, my favorite dim sum place in Chicago. It seriously rivals New York's Chinatown dim sum restaurants! The prices are affordable and the food is great. The best part? They close at 2am! Perfect for those late night cravings and after hour snacks. My favorite is the Macau Roast Pork Belly. Can't get enough of it. Writing this review just makes me want to go there tonight. I can seriously eat there everyday.
