“Great Cantonese, Modern Touches and Attentive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This restaurant reflects the wealth and sophistication of the Chinese community in this area demanding top Chinese food with a touch of modernity and updating. The food is excellent and authentic taking clues from the trendy fashion of Hong Kong dining and transporting it to America. The seafood is top notch and super fresh. Preparing is exquisite and presentation is well above the normal Chinese places. Prices are reasonable with fresh seafood a bit higher. For dining for one, there is a combo platter with dozens of main course choices at $12.95. The service is attentive. Dessert of either red bean soup or mango pudding are included. Highly recommended as one of the best in the area.

“New restaurant struggling with service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I'd rate this restaurant higher if they didn't have so many problems with their service. Their dim sum is better than most of the dim sum places in the area, the prices are good, and the atmosphere is pleasant. However, they need to develop better service to maintain business. One noodle dish which should have contained meat was served meatless. During the same meal, we were waiting a long time for our dishes. When we asked, they figured out that the order had never been taken to the kitchen. For dim sum they only have a few carts and the rest is brought out by servers. The servers get confused about what you have and what you still need. Fortunately, they apologize for their mistakes and give free items. Hopefully they can get their service straightened out.
