Good atmosphere, service, and food was the best part. The Dim Sum we had was excellent, food arrived late (approx. 30 minute wait) but staff compensated by paying the entire bill for us. Definitely recommend.

Ate lunch here today. Just my wife and I. Don't be like me and order too much food! If it's more than a few dollars it's going to be big like an entree. Order $3-6 items and they're just right for two people to share....More
