I agree with a lot of the yelp and TA opinions. This place can be much better. Certain dishes are really good, and appear less greasy than other nearby chinese restarants. However, the service is really bad. Always rushed, even if there is only a few tables. The food is served out of order. Even if you ask, the soup... More

We went on a Friday night and the restaruant was nearly empty. Even so, it took 15 minutes for the waiter to take our drink order and then even longer for the drinks to arrive. The exotic choices looked appealing but tasted like Kool Aid. Maybe the bottle of vodka or rum was near by, but not in the drinks.... More

Come here for Dim sum during lunch hours. Pretty good selection. Shrimp har gow is my favorite (with chives is very good also). Very nice place.

We visit this restaurant once every few months in the past 3 years. (We actually prefer to order takeout). The service is OK, price is not cheap but reasonable for Irvine. The restaurant has a small menu for a restaurant of this style and lacks the authentic dishes (it usually only has one type of Chinese vegetables), however, the seasoning... More

My girlfriend found a Groupon for this restaurant that was a really good deal so we went there for an opportunity to try a new restaurant. We were delighted with the decor inside, presentation of the food, sauces, and flavoring, The menu had many selections from House Specials that had me, a die hard Chinese food addict from Brooklyn NY,...

We had a bad feeling right when we walked in and during the 15 minute wait for the drinks we ordered. We went for their dim sum, which you order from a sushi-like checklist, rather than the fun carts that circle the room. Maybe the lack of customers warrented the new system? The tea (my favorite part of dim sum)... More

Okay, so first this place is a bit out of the way. Which, if it was worth it, wouldn't be that big of a deal. We went on a Saturday night and when we walked in there were only two other couples in the place (not a good sign). We had a travelzoo voucher so decided to stay. We did... More

Decided to try this restaurant off the 405 and Shady Canyon. Quiet Monday night and the service was slow. Was told that scallops and shrimp were in a 'white garlic sauce" ($16.50) but was served in a brown, salty sauce. Dish was served tepid, must have been waiting for the chicken with basil and green beans ($9.95) , which was... More

After seating us, we waited 40 minutes before WE had to ask them to take our order - the manager acted like we were bothering him/. then, when the drinks arrived the waiter SLAMMED them down on the table and didnt even say anything. THEN, after waiting and watching all the other patrons being servied before us, we finally WALKED... More
