Rolling carts of hot dim sum treats is hard to beat but, unfortunately, Kum Koon Garden comes up short when it comes to hot treats. The quality and preparation of the Dim Sum dishes are very well done and the servings are certainly adequate. Unfortunately, the size of the restaurant ensures that the food has substantially cooled by the time... More

I've eaten here several times over the years and I can certainly confirm, it stays consistent.The food is always fresh and hot. The waiters and waitresses will grasp what you are asking about half the time eg. (What is in those dumplings?) and on occasion it will be challenging to have a clear understanding of what they are reciting back... More

Went to Kum Koon Garden for lunch with coworkers and had dim sum.. SOOO delicious! Very tasty! Need to give yourself time if you are going for dim sum because the servers come with rolling carts to your table and you can then choose - if its busy such as when we went during lunch - you can wait a...

Right from the time we came in no polite greeting. Hostess just whisked by us leading us swiftly to a table. I am a senior so perhaps slow down when speeding through the restaurant. Chair was wet and dirty....she never even checked to ensure table/chairs had been appropriately cleaned. She was gone...not explaining dim sum or providing a menu. None... More

This was my first trip to Winnipeg in a number of years, and I met up with friends who took me to Kum Koon Garden for dinner. It was an eerie ambiance as we were the first seated for dinner, and the place is massive - once I got over that, we enjoyed our food (the Fried Shrimp with Onions,... More

I've wanted to try dim sum for some time, so was happy there was one in Winnipeg (more than one actually). The experience was a bit jarring at first. The host - not rude, but not overly friendly - sat us down and left. It might have been helpful to ask if we had eaten dim sum before and explain... More

This is the only place we like for dim sum in Winnipeg. The service is always great; from the greeter to the serving staff. The food always hot and delicious. So many choices! Never had a negative experience. Our favourite dim sum place

A few weeks back (Winnipeg 2016 trip #1), I was doing some work near the Royal Manitoba Theatre. Tired and hungry afterwards, I stumbled into Kum Koon Garden. This is another one of those restaurants that I hadn't visited in many years. Having visited it in 2008 or so, I remember the food being alright, though not quite at North... More

I am a native of the US - East Coast where dim sum is easily found, and the dim sum found at Kum Koon has been some of the best and freshest I've every tasted. Their selection may be slightly more limited that your that found in your country's largest metropolis, but the dim sum that they do serve is... More
