I’ve eaten at Chinese restaurants all over the US and China and this is the first time in my 50+ years that I’ve EVER had a meal I didn’t like. This restaurant sure looked great from the outside. With temping roast duck and pork in the window, I had to give it a try. I looked at the menu and... More

Finally made it to HCR, thankfully even though around noon we were still seated within 2-3 minutes to a newly cleaned table. The fact that most everything was not translated into English told us how authentic it was to be and was in fact a lovely adventure! Having read most of the Yelp reviews we knew it was safe to...

We stopped in after asking a gal at a local Asian market where a good place to eat was. Glad we got there when we did cause by the time we left it was packed and the line was out the door. okay, my thoughts.....not my favorite. Maybe the dishes we ordered? But a lot of thick sweet sauces and... More

You know it's a good place when there are a lot of Asians eating there AND waiting for a table. As my review's subject says, this is the best dim sum I've ever had. When we went, the line was especially long because it was Chinese New Year. But it was certainly worth the wait. Coming from Central Texas, I... More

The food is not a bit different from what you would get in China. But the food tastes awesome. I love the innovation scallop dumplings and seafood buns!

We drive 45 mins to an hour one way depending on traffic just to grab take out dim sum from here. It's our go to place for quality and price. Whenever we try somewhere else we leave feeling disappointed and ripped off. They have all of our favorites and they have never got our huge orders wrong.

This is a traditional chinese restaurant with authentic chinese cooking. We ordered salty egg with spinach, mapo tofu, fried pork chop and egg foo young. The portion was generous and the taste is addicting. We were lucky to find this in seattle.

Fresh seafood and produce are plenty in Seattle so it's no feat to cook up a good meal. We found the food here too salty. Namely the roast duck, roast pork and even vegetable. Portions are served with no finesse. I don't expect fine dining but it feels like chopper to dish.
