As you'd expect from a restaurant in The Peninsula, this is a very refined and civilized place for the humble dim sum, with an English menu that lists more than a dozen mouthwatering choices that change with the seasons. Dim sum connoisseurs believe the morsels served here are among the best in town, with past examples including steamed pork dumpling with shark's fin, and pan-fried minced beef and onion cakes. Spring Moon is also famous for its more than two dozen varieties of Chinese teas and even employs professionally trained tea masters. The restaurant is decorated in an Art Deco style reminiscent of how the restaurant would have looked in 1928, the year The Peninsula opened, with stained glass, wood paneling, and Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired highlights.
