“Nice Dim Sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Nice meal, lots of food, fast service and a great price. Have been here twice for a business lunch and it's been great both times.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Grew tired of walking around and reading menus and had hard time accessing Trip Adivsor reviews on app. . . should have identified a place or two before we arrived in the area. Anyway, we only wanted a light dim sum lunch... made five choices. Didn't feel that "poor" is a fair rating; rated "average" because our choices were "OK", rather ordinary; cheap prices. . Food arrived fast; tea was free. The area is very touristy but fun to walk around.

“AVOID! Horrible food and they tried to over charge us tourists.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011 via mobile

Bad bad experience. I am a big chinese food fan but this was bad food, not sure if it was chicken. Then waiter tried to charge an extra $20. He argued with us, showed us the bill in chinese... after lots of debate, he then said sorry claiming math error. Pretty sure he still overcharged us (we are a family on vacation, so easy tourist targets). We checked google reviews and 2 other users had the same overcharge story. And rude service.

“What a horrible experience. Very rude...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

What a horrible experience. Very rude service. We were overcharged on the bill and when we left our tip the waiter asked us for more money as he didn't think it was enough!

A very dishonest business and not one to recommend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2009

3.5 stars for the dinner. We like the Beef w/ Enoki Mushroom Pot and Stir-fried Pea Sprouts, but the squab fillet from the other dish is a bit stale.
