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...

During a 5 day vacation to Boston over 4th of July weekend, this was by far our best meal. Everything was perfectly done and unlike so many other places around town, the prices were low! Pork sticky buns were my personal favorite. China Town is a really cool spot and this place is a must.

Dim Sum was good. Most were pricier than LA’s. We came in early, first customers of the day. However, later, it was packed and there is a long waiting line. Our favorites: Chicken feet (鳳爪), Steamed shrimp dumplings (鮮蝦餃), Spare ribs (肉排); Jade Pearl Dumpling with crab meat (水晶球 $3.15); Pan Fried White Turnip Cake (蘿蔔糕 $3.15); Sharp Fin Pork... More

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
