Definitely one of the best Chinese in Cork. Dumplings are simply great but the menu offers so many more options. Service is very kind and professional. Never busy and reasonable price.

We lived in Hong Kong and my kids had a serious craving for Yum Cha (Dim Sum). This place satisfied our cravings perfectly. My son was very happy to have char Sui bao agin. We will be back!
