Go for brunch but arrive early you wont regret taking the time if not only for the early morning selection.

I love getting dim sum here. In all fairness, it can get busy some days, but if you catch it on an off day, you can definitely snag a table quickly and get yourself some good dim sum. Located on the fourth floor, you have to most likely put your name down for the next available table. Once you are... More

Since my children were only free from work late, my son who lives locally suggested to come here. An adv lobster special $2.99 a pound was great attraction. Many varieties of dishes to choose, there's always something for each one. As it was a traditional dinner for my daughter who just married, I had to order 8 dishes. Our menu... More

Went there with my sister and teenage kids. My nephew was initially hesitant but by the end of the meal he was very happy! We had 3lb lobster for $1.99/lb and it was delicious as well as noodles, soup, lamb chops and dessert for all under $60. The food was flavorful. The service was good. The price was reasonable. And...

It has been a couple of years since this business has changed its name to FIVE STAR SEAFOOD RESTAURANT. Location unchanged. This is a revisit review for late dinner after 930pm. I have reviewed this restaurant on October 31, 2011 for dinner at lunch prices. Same upscale Cantonese attitude seafood restaurant. They have tidied up some unkempt sections of the... More

Because of competition, the price of dim sum in the area is pretty cheap. I was in the bay area area and some of the dishes are $4 a dish. Over here they are $1.35 on every dish, large, medium or small, Monday through Friday. So the price i right. The quality is average and service is not bad. For... More

We frequent this place for weekend gathering and the food has always matched up to our expectations. The portion definitely justified the prices you paid. Highly recommended!

Fun, loud and cheap. Average cost of 3 pieces about $2.00. Fresh hot dim sum. Waiters walk around hocking their dishes. You just point at what you want. We had a blast before we knew it we had 6 dishes on our table! Pace yourself when you go.

I went there on June 29, 2013. I like the dim sum because they were hot. There are many carts selling almost the same thing. The worse thing is that even the waiters were pushing dim sum. I tried to get a glass of water or chili paste but they were selling dim sum and too busy.

Went to the above establishment on a Sunday for Dim Sum. Will never ever go back. The quality of the food is horrible! Some of their food was spoiled due to being a non seller. We had to request a refund. Instead, they would only give you credit on a following item of your choice. The selection is poor and... More
