All I can say is, where's my food? If you ask for what you ordered after it never shows up the wait staff disappears and never returns. Terrible service, manager walks by stopped at every table but mine. Lesson learned

We came here two nights in a row and the dishes here can be a hit or miss. First night we had the stirred fried snow pea leaves with garlic and the beef short rib on a sizzling plate. Both of the dishes were delicious...More

The food selection on their Dim Sum menu is amazing, and the service is even better than the last time we came here. This is a rock-solid, authentic place to go for dim sum in Chicago's Chinatown. In the past, they would bring carts around...More

The good: congee, steamed bbq pork bao, black bean spareribs. Okay: chow fun, fried buns. Poor: calamari, fried sticky rice. Good atmosphere; nice decor. I am comparing quality vs restaurants in Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Told 30 min wait. Waited 45 minutes and then inquired. I was told another 40 minutes. Very discourteous. We wouldn't have waited if they were honest.

Great customer service and excellent dim sum. Host greeted us with a very warm welcome. We had their Har Gao, Siu Mai, steam beef ball, beef tripe w/turnip, beef crepe, deep fried taro and pan fried turnip cake. Will be back for more dim sum!

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
