I'm thinking about going out for dim sum -- I haven't had any since I moved to Atlanta from San Francisco. I have no idea about any of the places that came up on a Google search. Any suggestions? Do dim sum places here use the cart system exclusively, or can you order off a menu as well?
I can't attest to the quality as I haven't been in years but there is a Dim Sum place on Buford on the left just after Chamblee tucker as you are headed intown. I keep thinking it's called Hunan something. They use the cart system and sunday afternoons (lunch) is all you can eat.
I went to Chef liu's recently (also on Buford Hwy.), I went to try their Xiao long bao, I'm a dumpling freak you see. We tried several things and were happy with all of them, including pig tongue. The menu as a whole is not large and has some pretty challenging stuff on it. I give it a big "Authentic" tag. As a side bonus, I love the stare you get from the all asian clientele when you walk in the door. That is usually a good indicator, that and when we went it was 3pm and the place was packed.

I think they only have dim sum during the day - but they have it every day. And you're only half a block from the Gwinnett International Farmer's Market, and about 5-10 minutes from Super H Mart if you need to walk off all those calories.

They have dim sum every day, though almost all of my visits have been on weekends.
On weekends, they roll carts around the dining room for sure & you can also request items from the kitchen.
The times I have been during the week, we just ordered off the menu.

I believe China Delight is closed now. Does anyone have other suggestions for Dim Sum?
Do not go to the Happy Valley on Jimmy Carter Blvd in the Oakbrook Shopping Center next to Nam Phuong. It was Gross. It was expensive. I encountered young and old flies buzzing around my food. They did not provide dipping sauces, only soy, mustard, and plum sauces.
