Had breakfast here. Good selection of dim sums and steamed buns. Taste is better than those found in other places. A definite place to check out.

Before they shifted to their current location, taste and service was awesome. Had to ambush the dim sum lady. Now is just down right horrible and no nostalgic feeling.

Dim Sum here is so so, now it has gone self-service unless you order pre-cook dishes. Few push carts come around and quite a hassle to queue at the ordering counter. Very different from other joints where they still come to you in their carts or baskets. The restaurant across the road is more authentic dim-sum dining but not as... More

You have to wait next to a table until customers finished with their meals.If you have elderly folks this places is not advisable to visit. Price wise is probably above average. Parking is a nightmare in the weekends. This place is plagued with tour bus... More

Pricey. However, they offer wide range of dimsum..i like their fresh shrimp noodle roll, egg tart and friend carrot cake. Oriental decoration of the restaurant which provide customers comfortable environment to enjoy their dimsum.

Overrated and overpriced . Food is just average at the best . Some servings are not hot. Can easily get dimsum better than that elsewhere. The staff that served us was rude. Demanded that EACH of us order a drink each . According to her, it's their policy to charge according to "per head". Since there are 4 of us,... More

Over priced and definitely over rated. Dim sum are just average and does not warrant the long queue. Not worth revisiting. However the staffs are warm and friendly.
