Food is very good here. Lots of varieties. Always busy during lunch time on the weekends. The only thing I would recommend for improvement is to have more than 3 carts to choose from during busy hours so that the wait is not too long Other than that food is delicious!

Today's service was extremely slow even though the restaurant was nowhere at capacity. This is very bad when you come here for dim sum. The food when we finally got some was very good. And always a fresh, clean table cloth. The restrooms are in bad shape, dirty and most of the floor tiles are coming loose..

After spending 18yrs in Asia, this place is as close to Mom's kitchen as you can get. I have been having business lunches here for over 10 years and my Asian guests always ask to return. I finally had the opportunity to have my wife join a lunch and she can't wait to return with our boys a s make... More

I was searching for a Dim Sum restaurant and happened upon this one. The reviews seemed fair so I took the leap. It was a weekday evening and there were only 3 other tables with patrons so I assume this was why there were no carts rolling by. I ordered from the menu and received my food in a reasonable...

I love this restaurant and have been coming here for years for dim sum. The food is great, way better than the dim sum places I've been to in Chinatown. My concern is with the cleanliness of the restaurant and the lack of hygiene practices by the staff. The floor is sticky, the cushions on the chairs are stained and... More

We've been coming here for years. The servers always greet us with smiles and remember my husbands favorite order. The dim sum here is wonderful.The variety in flavor and texture is excellent. While there are always some standards, (shu mai, shrimp bonnets, fried taro, sticky rice, etc. ) the selection varies a little depending on when you arrive. There are... More

Enjoyed dinner here with family of an asian friend. Big round tables for about 14, makes sharing food easy. Food was decent, not the best I have ever had but good. Very large place, easy to fit big group.

I love eating here because all of the dim sum items are prepared very well. You can eat until you have a hard time breathing but you won't feel gross afterwards from consuming too much grease. One of my favorite places to eat on a Sunday morning. Come early because this place gets busy fast.
