Went for weekday dim sum arriving around 11:30 AM. Was seated immediately in the row of tables for two along the wall. Don't let them seat you there. Dim sum carts can't get through and you have to stand up and squeeze by other tables to see what is in the carts. Ladies pushing carts made no attempt to help;... More

If you want to have lunch at this restaurant, there are a few things you must do: 1. beat the crowd by arriving before 11:30AM, or let the crowd beats you by arriving after 12PM 2. This is a Cantonese restaurant with some twisted. Dim sum is a very safe choice for lunch. 3. Seafood is very good in general.... More

My colleagues and boss took me took me for some Chinese when I visited on a business trip. My Chinese boss explained mainly about the dim sum dishes as the carts filled with dishes were roaming around us in the huge restaurant hall filled with tables. A bit of dim sum dishes, Chinese rolls, sticky rice filled with rice and... More

I have been driving by this restaurant for weeks on my way to and from work and went by last weekend but the crowd was to great to wait. Definitely had to try again. Today a friend and I went and were able to get right in for dinner. We got some hot tea upon sitting down and then ordered... More

For those who love the ordinary or any of the exotic 'meats & games' hanging in the glass "BBQ" case, this place has the meatiest roasted duck, every time we went. 1/2 duck for under $10 as appetizer. There is certain level of craftsmanship to cut a duck into even size pieces, with no loose bones or strips of meat... More

this place seems to have consistently long lines of Chinese people on weekends for dim sum. Do call in ahead of time to get a number. Definitely saves time waiting. Service is typical for a large Chinese restaurant: noisy, tables reasonably clean but not spic & span. Tables quite close together/crowded. When you ask for something like extra fork, ice... More

Went there early right when they open and didn't have to wait in line! Their Taro Buns are so delicious! All of the dishes were hot and freshly made!

Went there with a friend for lunch, Enjoyed the dim sum quite a bit. It would suggest staying away from the Zongzi (sticky rice) it is very traditional and glutinous, too much for my taste. Check out the content of the sea food tanks before you order. We had the striped shrimps and they were quite delicious.

My team went to the Saigon in Sunnyvale for a dim sum lunch. We waited about 15 minutes (on a monday lunchtime!) but it was worth it. The full dim sum experience with trolleys and and the raucous atmosphere of hundreds of people enjoying their food and tea. Staff were typically rushed and slightly sullen trolley drivers, but they were... More
