“Descending quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place used to be my favorite, and I introduced a whole bunch of people to it. However, in the last 2-3 years, it has changed ownership at least 3 times, with each change resulting in a step down in quality. The original Taiwanese owners has long since cashed out, so the Taiwanese dishes has gotten totally unrecognizable - not only is the taste wrong, but the quality has been slipshod.

Very, very disappointed as it used to be a very reliable place to take friends/relatives for authentic Chinese food.

“Good Taiwanese Dim Sum Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

This restaurant serves dim sum/brunch on weekends & holidays. The dim sum selection is limited; however, they have other noodle dishes which are great too. We enjoyed their dim sum style there, especicaly the leek box, shanghai pork buns (or with crabmeat), beancurd wraps, hot soybean drink with cruler, and beef noodle soup. The price is very reasonable and the food is great. While they don't have as many a selection on dim sum compared to other restaurants, the varieties they have on the menu provide a good selection to choose from.

Would definitely go again and recommend this place to others.

“This place has probably...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2008

This place has probably the best soup laden steamed little pork buns I've tasted! On weekends they serve delicious breakfast foods that brings me back to my childhood in Taiwan when I order the hot soy milk or hot soycurd (dou jiang and dou hua). On weeknights they have a special price deal menu where you can order 3 dishes for $20. The food is great and the price you can't beat.
