Great Chinese seafood!

We were early, so there were only a handful of others. The service was great. The food was really good and plentiful. We had the Salt & Pepper Fish Fillet, Clams in soup, Sauteed String Beans. This is an old-style Chinese restaurant. Asians tend to be very direct and may sometimes be considered... read more

This place was so good for dim sum!! I never go to Asian places and expect good service, but we were lucky enough to have great servers who regularly filled up our waters and gave us whatever we needed. The food was yummy! It's a little pricey for dim sum, but totally worth it. Check it out if you're in... More

Average Dim Sum at best. We ordered the standard: a few dumplings, steamed BBQ buns, shrimp balls and added some rice noodles with shredded chicken; it was all ok except for the noodles that seemed to have been reheated a few times. Service is below average, waiter wouldn't even try to make a recommendation even after asking what he'd suggest... More

1. Good Restaurant if you like Chinese Dim Sum 2. Service is average as the Restaurant is crowded. 3. Four of us ate $88 plus, which was on the high side. This did not include any drinks as we ordered only oce water and hot water. Grandsons drank milk we brought. 4. Wife is quite happy for her dish of... More

Been going here for years and keep coming back. Great dim sum on the weekends, and great dinner too. For dinner, I highly recommend the salty fish fried rice and the tofu with scallops.

This is a tried and tested, battle ready, 'go to' dim sum restaurant in Mt. View! The food is always consistently the same good to great flavors and quality. The owners and staff are consistently polite, very nice, and they always go out of their way to support and help any customers. They have some amazing specialties like silky fried... More

Fu Lam Mum is a food factory rather than a restaurant. In a huge, aseptic hall, rows upon rows of greasy tables and hideous fake-leather red chairs await you. The service makes you understand that they are making you a favour by serving you, and do that ever so slowly. They do not hesitate to scold your party if it... More

They open till late, it must've been 11 pm and I just needed some filling Chinese noodles and they had it! Stir-fried flat noodles with chicken was pretty delicious. I believe there was also wifi so that's a plus.

Had an excellent meal last night, with a combination of Dim Sum plates, mixed mushrooms in clay pot, smoked sea bass in tea sauce and fried rice. The sea bass was excellent, and the mushrooms were as well. However, the mushrooms would have been improved with less butter, but you can't have everything. Dim Sum was above average quality, and...

Felt like having dim sum, and by chance passed by this place. The number of people waiting to be seated was persuasive, so we joined the line. The 15 minutes of wait (Sunday lunch) was well worth it. The tea was fragrant, and the variety and quality of the dim sum was impressive, and the price was very reasonable. We... More
