My wife and I trekked over to Chinatown for some dim sum and stumbled upon Triple Crown! Wow! We couldn't have been more satisfied with our experience. They bring around carts full of prepared dishes for you to immediately choose from. We picked the fried sesame ball and shrimp and chives dumpling. Very tasty! I ordered the lunch special vermicelli noodle and my wife ordered general tsao shrimp (she's a pescatarian), and both were delicious. If you're in Chicago and looking for a great place for Chinese food, look no further!!

Went here with my family and had excellent dim sum and drinks. Will definitely come back again! The buns and General Tsao with the Lucky Buddha beer is a winner.

We went here looking for traditional dim sum and some proper Chinese food.

We hadn't booked - just headed for Chinatown and picked a place at random so it was good that we were sat down immediately at a window seat - to be fair, there were lots of available seats - we were one of only 3 tables.

The lady who sat us down was pleasant enough but didn't exactly crack a smile. She left a bunch of menus and scooted off. Another equally glum male appeared with a pot of green tea - which incidentally, was lovely!

A third, even more melancholic server arrived and took our order which was a couple of dim sum and a couple of mains - which all arrived within a few minutes of each other - which was a shame as it would have been nice to savour the flavours.
The dim sum was listed on a 'tick the box' paper menu - it could have done with some better explanations - most of the dim sum looked the same - it would have been helpful to know what each of them contained.

My main - prawns with ginger and green onions was, to put it generously, tasteless.
It was watery, with huge chunks of spring onions, slices of ginger that were akin to bits of garden mulch and lots of shelled prawns that had virtually no seasoning.

The bottle of Sauvignon Blanc was actually a Sauvignon/semillion but was nice enough.

Not exactly what I was expecting but the dim sum was the light that brightened the experience.

I was familiar with 2 other dim sum houses, one has been torn down and the other with a new name. We chose Triple Crown due to the traditional carts. Caution, dining is on the 2nd floor. We had to carry our stroller upstairs and fold it. All of our favorites were present, taro cake, turnip cake, lotus sticky rice, etc., but we found a few new favorites including the shrimp and corn dumplings and the coconut cake, which was like coconut jello jigglers. A sweet ending. 2 adults, a healthy 6 year old and an excited toddler filled ourselves for $45.
Additionally, much of the staff speaks very good English and even with the carts were helpful to go find items that you would like. They also have a picture menu with brief descriptions to watch for goodies.

My niece and I went to the art institute and then here for a late lunch to take in a bit of culture. Took an UBER for about $5. Since it was a cooler day the .50 pot of tea tasted good upon arrival. You walk up the stairs to the second floor and our table was at the windows looking out over the street where we could people watch as well. Both of our dishes were good! Took the "L" back to our hotel right off the red line. Great outing.
