While visiting L.A. I enjoyed my first experience with a Dim Sum meal, a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. We ordered 5 separate items from the menu each containing 3 -4 pieces of each item and it was more than enough food for the two of us. We left feeling very full and satisfied. The vegetable Spring Rolls were crispy and flaky and stuffed with ingredients unlike some restaurant spring rolls that are mostly crust. The Steamed BBQ Pork Buns were a light, spongy pork filled bun. My only complaint about these if I must find a negative point is that the filling wasn't over the top and I would have preferred a bit more meat to bun ratio. The Dim Sum Chicken Potsticker was a solid piece of food giving significant substance to the meal. The Dim Sum, Wu Kok (Fried Taro) was by far my favorite. Light, airy, crispy, flaky with a crust and filling that was sweet. Reasonably priced for the Beverly Hills neighborhood that it is in and compared to other restaurants of its type in the area.
The restaurant offers valet parking out in front however, we went around 2PM and there was ample parking on the street at meters (which do take credit cards) The waitress was prompt and efficient keeping our glasses filled at all times. I am looking forward to returning soon.
