I put 22 dollars down for the $18 dollar bill and then after the server picked it up they returned the bill with 2$ and said it was not enough money. They and/or the server is a crook! Not wanting to get in a fight I stupidly put down another twenty so I actually tipped the crooks. As the food is less than average. They boiled the pea tops when they list the item as sautéed and they were cold on arrival. Lots od choices on this block. Go elsewhere

Dim Sum was hardly noteworthy or unusual. Most dishes were lacking some flavor or seemed suspiciously frozen then fast steamed. Prices were high but the place was cleaner than slot of others in the area. Go here if you must but don't expect more than average dining.

We had reservations so no problem getting table. It was early, so service was slow to start. Once the food carts started there was still a little wait, but ok. The dim sum was tasty and overall good. We'll above average, not the best in the world, but certainly far above the worse. I had a stomach ache after, so don't know if ate something bad or ate too much. There are many places to eat on Clement and have not yet compared being an Oakland inhabitant. East Bay has some better dim sum restaurants and certainly some worse.

When you have a 99 year old Chinese man seated at the table next to you and a 90 year old Chinese woman seated at the table behind you, you know you're in the right place for some great Chinese food! (the 99 year old man's daughter told us that and it was true!) The place was packed with locals who were really enjoying their meals. Our food was fresh, hot and very tasty. The place was a little worn could use a remodel. Our table was wobbly but that didn't detract from the excellent food. We will definitely visit again on our next San Francisco vacation.

We tried a variety of items. They were all very good. I thought the service was very attentive. This was my first experience at an authentic Chinese dim sum style restaurant and I would definitely return to this restaurant.
