Without a doubt, the best dim sum dining is in Asheville.
Better than Knoxville, Charlotte or Greenville SC. Definitely worth the drive if this is your hard-to-find cuisine.
Highly recommended?

Loved the modern vibe with the traditional notes of art around. This is a real dim sum place, and the food was simply amazing. Must-have if you're in the area!

Once we got our waiter’s attention, he was responsive and attentive — but he was stretched too thin with too many tables getting started at the same time, and with each meal paced similarly.
Food great as always.
Too noisy, and the owners could do something to remedy this if they tried.

The manager was very surprised when I said they had a reservation through open table. Then he decided to take my date and to a two top right in front of the waiters station. I resisted punching him in the face because he quickly relented and offered us a better table.
We ordered five items, and we found two very objectionable. The first item is an oily tasteless fried rice. The second item was an order of steamed vegetable dumplings which were mostly dough and no filling or taste in them. P.F. Chang’s put’s them to shame.
Of the remaining items, the green beans were delicious and then the Buddha wraps were just ok. The seaweed salad was ok, but nothing special.
We were lucky to get a good waiter who guided us away from other worse items

My husband and I ordered multiple different kinds of dumplings. Our favorites were Szechaun Wontons and Pork dumplings shanghai style.

After I told the waiter I am vegan and ordered, he brought a dish with egg in it. He apologized and brought me the same dish without egg.

Been eating at red ginger since the opening. It's our go-to for special occasions, dates, out of towners. Love occasional seasonal menu changes. Always given table immediately upon entry with open table reservation.

Our table of 4 enjoyed every Dim Sum and Tapas item ordered. The cocktails were also nice - especially the Gimlet. My favorite dish was the locally sourced Spicy Mountain Trout - also the green beans in garlic sauce. Yum!

We arrived early for our reservation and were promptly seated. In spite of being early, I felt that they were in a rush for us to finish. I ordered hot and sour soup "to start." Three spoonfuls into eating my soup, other dishes began to arrive. There was no sense of staging. Soup was okay as were pot stickers and spring rolls - but just okay, nothing special. Tuna tataki was very plain, served with no dipping sauce. Eggplant dish was just limp eggplant sticks. My companion and I both love eggplant, but we didn't bother to finish this dish.

Lively and vibrant simple restaurant. All the food was spectacular. We're had the won ton and hot and sour soups, spring rolls, swechwann dim sum, fresh takaki, and more stuff. It was ALL great. Oh, yeah, end the dinner with the limoncello dessert. If we lived closer, we would be there every week!

Hard to order with almost too many choices between dinsum and tapas. Some choices were outstanding while others just so-so. Expected more intense flavors/presentations and had to just settle on so-so.
