Excellent Cantonese food, dim sum served all day (it's fresh and hot, we ordered ours in the evening better than from the carts). It's in old chinatown downtown, parked on the side streets and pay by meter. Everyone there was Chinese.

Visited this afternoon, enjoyed the all day Dim sum Menu on a Sunday. Was great value. Must haves are the crispy pork and the half Peking duck. Really authentic aesthetics aren't anything to brag about but the food makes up for all of this. Try the Singapore vermicelli noodles... Well worth it. Watch out for the portions as everything served... More

I'd heard so much about this place that I went for a late breakfast. It's not that I was disappointed, but it did not meet my expectations. The shu mai was heavy and the service was average.

There's a very good reason there's usually a line of hungry customers waiting for a table at Harbor City, the food is just delicious. We met friends here who arrived early and grabbed a table just as we arrived. In my opinion, this is Dim Sum at it's finest. The food is made from fresh ingredients and served steaming hot.... More

Situated in the heart of ChinaTown, this is a terrific place for some of the best chinese food we've had. We went for Dimsum and were very happy with the food, service and the entire experience. The staff was very nice and helpful. It's open for breakfast, lunch and Dinner - 7 day a week.

A busy place. Inexpensive. Loved the barbecued pork and roast duck as much as the wide variety if dim sum. Definitely worth the wait.

Was at the stadium and hungry for dim sum. This is right down the road. Took me back to a visit to Hong Kong. Peking duck in the window, narrow restaurant with lazy susans. Looked like they only cleaned the floors when they closed, we came at 5pm on a Sunday and it was not full to say the least.... More

We decided we were hungry for dimsum. It was a beautiful sunny day and a trip to the International District sounded like a great holiday idea. The first thing to think about (that we didn't) is parking; it can be hard to find. Second thing to think about is what time you are going. We arrived at noon and the... More

We realized we'd picked a good spot for lunch when we walked in and saw lots of old persons speaking something other than English. We were the only non Asians in the crowded joint. The dim sum items were very fresh and delicious. The price was cheap for the three of us and all we ate. We'll be back.
