It doesn't look special, big room with many many tables, but a Mountain View local STRONGLY RECOMMENDED it so we went! The ladies wheeling their steaming trolleys of fresh dim sum coming at just the right time so as not to overload the table nor leave you looking longingly across the room for the next delightful dish! We ate a... More

Our service was so much better than the food. The waiter was attentive and extremely nice, but unfortunately......

We were a family group of six and had gone for dinner on a Sunday. As we were there early-evening - a table was available almost immediately. The service was swift & friendly. We had ordered for Pan fried Dumplings (pot-stickers), Yang Chow Fried Rice, Chow Fun, Pan Fried Noodles and Sweet & Sour Pork. We had not ordered for... More

What can I say about this place....Me and my wife often go here when we want to laugh about the service. The food is great, but don't get to expect service like a restaurant. There is not restaurant culture, the waiters are just casual. Overall nice place to grab a quick bite.

We attended a wonderful wedding banquet here and were very pleased with the wonderful food! The traditional Chinese wedding banquet had tasty seafood and chicken dished served piping hot. The service was orderly and timely. The only "issue" we had was the PA (sound) system upstairs. It was woefully inadequate, muffled and feedback prone, largely drowned out by the crowded... More

Really good Chinese standards - nothing we ordered was particularly "out there", but that is due to us, not what is available at the restaurant. It's a creative and authentic menu with fresh prawns, lobster, crab, bream and sea bass in tanks. Dining with a veggie, the tofu and eggplant/aubergine dish was excellent. Crispy noodles with fresh veg (brocolli/pak choi... More

What can be said? Its dim sum! Reminds me of dim sum in Hong Kong, so that should tell you it is good and authentic! Enjoy with some friends and have fun!

We were shown to a table where food was all over the floor, presumably left over from the previous sitting. I mean you can tell from the leftover food what the previous guests had ordered. We pointed this out to the waiter who asked a bus boy to clean it up but he only cleaned half of it, leaving the... More

I'm a dim sum fanatic AND I have an iron stomach. Almost everything I tried here was terrible; only the siu mai were bordering on edible. The har-gao were among the worst I ever had. And I had a stomach ache and diarrhea all night later. That's the last time I ever drive OUT of the City for dim sum!... More
