“enjoyable dim sum, great variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Visited on 2 separate occasions, both for lunch and dim sum. Had everything from shrimp dumplings, to eggplant, to bbq ribs. All quite tasty, and the carts just keep circulating with different options. We enjoyed it enough to make a second visit. Price for 3 was under $60 and we had quite a few different dishes.

“Must Have Some Dim Sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Lovely delicate steamed dim sum with lots of variety. A great place for a fast lunch because the moment you sit down the steam cart ladies will roll in like street corner dim sum pushers. Hint, turn your bill over to signal that you are dim summed out and some of them will pass on by. Another hint - the pineapple bun for desert is delicious! (Note that it's KUM KOON, not "Kam Koon" as the Trip Advisor title suggests.)

“overpriced for individual dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I will admit being married to a Chinese woman will jade this review but this was pricey for the quality. The ginger beef was fried (fried beef is just wrong) and there was no apparent ginger flavor. The lemon chicken had too much sauce and was fried. The shrimp in black been and garlic sauce was pretty good. However, charging for the Chinese tea was just wrong. To pay 54 dollars for this was too much. Now, having said this, I have heard this place has wonderful dim sum...I will have to try that during my next visit.

“Still the BEST authentic chinese food around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

You know it is a great chinese restaurant when most of the diners are asian! This is by far the best place to get authentic chinese food and dim sum. Service, not that great, but the food is worth the try!
