Long lines - justified!

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... read more

Some of the best and most innovative Dim Sum I have ever had. Some of their dishes I have seen nowhere else. You can avoid the crowds by going at an off time.

I had the traditional chinese brunch at Fu Lam Mum. It is crowded so you should come not to late. The food is carried arround and you can just stopp the waiter and pick that you want. I like the taste of the food!

Great DismSum selections in the AM...its a busy restaurant during 'peak' times so plan ahead to avoid the lines and wait.

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

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
