Lunch with Grandson

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... read 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

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!
