The food here is delicious! We split a dinner from the menu and tried dim sum. Great price, and fresh, amazing food. Highly recommend!!

My favorite dim sum place. The BBQ pork buns have the right balance of bread and BBQ pork (char siu). The siu mai has just the right balance of pork and shrimp.

This is our favorite dim sum place. We used to go to Phoenix but we think this is better. Typical Chinatown place which means low on atmosphere (except for lots of happy people chowing down.) It's all about the dim sum here which is excellent. Low prices too! Highly recommended.

Authentic Dim Sum except the tables are tightly fit and you order the Dim Sum from a menu rather than them coming around with a cart to entice you with different dishes. Well worth the wait here!

Great for dim sum, even better for dinner. Check out their specials menu (last time we tried the sticky fried rice...it rocked!).

My favorite Chinese Restaurant in Chicago. Non-pretentious... great price, great food. When I lived here, this is where I go weekly, now that I've moved... this is where I come back to when I visit. Dim Sum in the AM and dinner in the PM are both good
