Great Dim Sum Experience and Food!

I went to the Rainbow Butterfly Chinese Restaurant with a friend at his suggestion. He had been there a number of times before and always enjoyed it. We did so today too, very much. We arrived around 11:45 and were seated immediately. The restaurant filled up soon when the lunch crowd arrived... read more

This restaurant is simple, well laid out and clean, clean, clean. Maybe because it is so well laid out, the service is very fast, friendly and efficient. Most of all, the food is out of this world. Whether you are adventurous or new and a little timid the Dim Sum will take you directly to your happy place. Get their... More

We were waiting in line for our dim sum, but the owner let a big group of people jump in line because he knows them. When I confronted him, he simply told me to go somewhere else.

My family has eaten at Rainbow Butterfly on many occassions. The food is quite good with decent portions. I just wish the service was a bit better. They welcome you into the restaurant, seat you hastily, after that it is like you are an inconvenience to them sadly. The owner is the best person to deal with as he appears... More

Giving this restaurant a 4 star rating despite what may be the worst service I've ever encountered says a lot for the food here. Very excellent! Just don't go expecting to have your bill in an hour and be on your way. The food was fresh, well seasoned and just plain delicious. And we had no place to be fast,... More

This was a take out order. The meal was ready in 15 minutes and the person taking the order was polite. I had tried this restaurant years ago as a sit in meal and was highly disappointed then with the service and food quality. This time the first words out of my mouth was that it tasted like S--T.
