This is the best we've found living here over 10 years. We go almost monthly. The dumplings are really great. Love the lemon chicken and the spicy dishes and noodle options are great too. We don't order the "American-style" items, so can't recommend those. But their specialty dishes are excellent.

Unlike most people I do not order the chicken ball combo. I got an egg roll which was meat paste and very tasty, 12 pork dumplings which were among the best I have ever had in Halifax, and a Fried Noodle in Black Bean Sauce. The noodle was more like a thai noodle and the veggies were prefect; It is... More

We samples the wontons, spring rolls, sweet and sour ribs, shanghai noodles, General Tao's chicken and the Szechuan shrimp and vegetables, all were great. We did note... More

I have been going to this place for weekend dim-sum for the past couple of years and love the fresh, home-made dumplings. The prices are very affordable (sometimes I am surprised by the amount of food I get for the price I pay) and judging by the fact that the overwhelming majority of their clientele is Chinese (at least when...
