We craved some Dim Sum while on a recent visit to Boston and decided on Hei La Moon in Chinatown. The restaurant is huge and even if there looks like a long line outside waiting to get in, you get seated fairly quickly due to...More

Visiting from Florida,I asked my Southie daughter for a dim sum breakfast. She recommended Hei La Moon and we loved bed it. The bathrooms were filthy but the food was great. Prices are reasonable.

This restaurant is huge! And on a Saturday lunch time it was packed full, mostly with Chinese diners which is a sign the Dim Sum is excellent. A constant stream of trolleys carries the food around the tables and you choose from a big variety...More

Dim Sum all day long with parking in the same building don’t be afraid to ask for a favorite! Parking is as handy as possible with tight parking available in the same building.

Located in the heart of China Town. The restaurant offers a huge selection of dim sum favorites from early morning. I have been here many times but again only for dim sum. Clean and efficient staff, delicious offering and reasonably priced.

I've had my fair share of Dim Sum in my life (studied abroad in HK for a semester :) ), and this place is probably the MOST authentic place in Boston's Chinatown. The service is totally reliant on where you sit within the restaurant =...More

We found this place as we strolled through China Town and OMG! It’s a HUGE restaurant and there is a big parking garage attached if you are driving here. We were here on a Friday morning so it wasn’t super crowded and we were seated...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

No, they stop at 3pm too. Same as China Pearl. My advice would be to get there before 1pm for the best selections.

There is a garage in the same building , around the corner and up the ramp. It typically gets full on Sundays after 12pm but they do validate at the restaurant. I think it's around $6-7.
