Good, but not excellent

I like this place overall. Some items are very good. The best things is that Dim Sum is available the whole day here, even at night. How I wish the service were good! The service is actually not bad, but it just doesn't exist...

The restaurant will get a 5 star from if the waiters were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the dim sum very much and the price is reasonable. Must order xiao long bao or soup dumpling

The male waiters were not helpful at all. The one woman waitress was. One of the male waiters standing behind our table burped loudly. The food was good but dim sum basically was just dumplings. What we ordered was good but Too many good restaurants to bother with bad service. No beer or saki:(

I won't claim to be a connoisseur of dim sum, but I've had it a few times in a few places at this stage. This restaurant does a good variety of dishes at extremely reasonable prices. I think it's reasonably authentic, but you don't need to deal with carts etc, as it's all to order. Picture menu is helpful, and... More

If you don't get here early, you always have to wait for a table at this made to order dim sum place. Outstanding dishes yesterday were their fried dumplings, soup dumplings, and salt crusted squid. The staff is friendly and the price is right!

We enjoy having Chinese food for New Year's. We also enjoy Dim Sum so we combined those and made the trip to Boston. The location is small, and we shared a table with two other people, with whom we had a delightful conversation. We had steamed pork buns, crab ragoon, fried sesame buns, chive and shrimp dumplings etc. The food... More

Was walking around Chinatown and found this place. Looked up the reviews and it looked like it was worth a try. Very quite place. Doesn't serve beer or alcohol. Dim sum was brought out hot and quick. Beef broccoli was really tender. Service was quick and attentive. Overall very good meal. Just wish I could have washed it down with... More

I came here because I wanted authentic dim sum and because it's on Tyler ;) street. $3.15 per dim sum plate was a normal price and the food was good. I came alone and sat at a very large table with other people dining single which I didn't mind. The food and service was fast and efficient.

The dim sum was tasty and affordable (~4$/dish). The menu had a wide variety of options and included several vegetarian dishes. Our only complaint was that the wait staff was a bit on the cranky side. But, nothing that couldn't be overcome by quick and tasty food. We ate at 6pm and there was plenty of space on a Wednesday...

Three friends went last week and had a good meal. We split three dishes and three dim sum plates. We had to share a table because they were so busy.
