The food is nice, but the servings are pretty small, making it a little on the expensive side to get a filling meal. However, I still recommend it! :)

This is the 2nd time we went to this restaurant for dim sum. On both occasions, we found their food to be above average, good. They serve their dim sum from within the kitchen, not from the steam carts which you sometime see in other dim sum restaurants. As such, you're not getting your order right away & with that,...

Food was good. Server was friendly and helpful. The person who sat us and later took our money was impersonal, could have welcomed us and smiled but didn't. Menu was in English and Chinese for some pages but there were 2 pages in Chinese only, and that made us feel in welcome.

The service is fast. The place is relatively clean. The waiters are helpful in suggesting what is good to try. Waiters/waitresses are friendly and accommodating.

Loved the dimsum options but could use a little bit of friendliness from their staff. The lad in charge of the water pitcher was much nicer and more attentive.

I love Chinese food and this place was excellent I can't put them 5 stars because the service it's very slow. It will be a good idea to put extra people to work in rush hour.

I wish this restaurant was closer to us! The food is always good and the high number of Chinese eating there is a vouch for its value and authenticity. You won't be disappointed. Lunch time can be quite busy so if you don't want to wait, go a bit before or after 'lunch hour'.

Had dim sum (Chinese tapas) with the family. We were seated at a booth which is a little unconventional for a Chinese restaurant but very comfortable. Service was prompt. We were seated quickly, ordered and served our food in good time. We were in and out within an hour. The food is good but the pan fried radish cake was... More
