The restaurant offers a variety of Chinese food, but we came at the recommendation of ethnic Chinese to try dim sums. The restaurant is very modestly decorated, without much ambiance, but dim sums are quite good..

Having lived in pp for 9 years, I must have driven by this place dozens if not hundreds of times. Finally tried it and was not disappointed. The bbq pork was very lean. They make a good fried rice with shrimp and pork. Also enjoyed a beef dish with fried noodles and vegetables. some of the other items are hit-and-miss,... More

Best dim sum restaurant in Phnom Penh. Chinese food in Cambodia is often too greasy and expensive but this place is brilliant. Good too for vegetarians. Lots of Chinese eat here. For two people can eat 8 plates of dim sum for less than USD 20.

Went here because it was highly rated in the Lonely Planet and here. Was disappointed. Looks like a fast food restaurant on walking in, plastic decor and booths.

Great Chinese food and large amount of options. Close to central market so good if you want lunch after shopping. Not the friendliest service but that may be because it was quite busy. That said, busy restaurants are the best in phnom penh!

Our new go-to place for a quick lunch, lots of options - everything we've tried has been tasty and fresh. Prices are reasonable, and service is quick and efficient if not exactly friendly. Faves are are duck wonton noodles, and the fried sticky dumplings.
