My usual spot for over 10 years. Boss is always smiling and helpful. Only issue is the service. The waitresses are rude, but honestly which dimsum location have you been to and had rude waitresses wheeling carts around? ALL!!! Prices are decent, it's fresh and not frozen!! A must is the sticky rice, 3 pieces for $3.25, the Siu Mai,... More

This review is not about food quality, which is pretty good. It is also not about eating in the restaurant because we always order. This review is about their take-out service and getting it right- or wrong, as in this case. We have been getting our Chinese food here for over 8 years. This is the first and last time... More

It's a step up from the regular dim sum out there. Always busy so expect to wait a bit. The desserts are great. Service is okay. Not amazing but not bad either.

Seating is tight, however dim sum is good. Arrive early for better service. Good selection. I do not recommend the potstickers as they are very doughy. We have also had dinner here a few times - food is good. Service average.

Have always been a favourite meeting place for my family whenever they come to POCO for lunch. Their spread of tim sum is commendable and you tick what you want to order. Their spicy wonton is great and other usual tim sum is as good if not better than other restaurants. Service is great and fast and normally on weekends... More

Good food and good value. My "go to" Chinese restaurant in Poco. Discount given for take out orders. Fast service both in the restaurant and for take out.
