I had not been here in awhile and was delighted to find that TC Choy still does Dim Sum on carts everyday and the selection is continues to be plentiful. The ample parking is a plus.

They were also very accommodating... More

Flew into Tampa to visit family and we stopped at TC Choys. Had a terrific experience. The choices were excellent and authentic, as good as I've had in San Francisco and Chinatown in NY. The service was fast and they were able to accommodate our extra orders quickly. The only drawback was that the only had soy sauce, no tamarind... More

Johan is very knowledgeable, not only about the menu but also the whole Tampa area. We have gone back with friends who have a son who is... More

Our family has been going here for years for special occasions. Sundays are usually when we go. This year we realized that portions have gone smaller and prices have gone up. The fried shrimp ball now has rice filler when previously it was all shrimp. The 3 sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf was laughing 2 bites each only. The... More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. The menu is very large, and on the weekends they bring around several carts of dim sum.
