My friend and I love the juicy shanghai dumpllings in the dipping sauce! I also enjoy the hand pulled noodle wrapped fish with its savory sweet soy sauce. The string beans, garlic herb tofu cubes, crab claws, mushroom chicken buns and roast duck are staple...More

I love Cantonese food, and this place is probably the best in the Bay Area. If you would like to eat dim sum in this restaurant on the weekend, please expect a long wait unless you get there when it opens. There are other locations...More

No hot pot. Dim sum during the day. You might be able to get a few selections of dim sum at dinner time if you ask; it all depends on how much was unsold during lunch time.

You may avoid gluten by staying with rice. Avoid wheat and flour dishes that are so common in dim-sum dishes such as BBQ pork buns, onion pan-cake, shiao-loun-pao, pot stickers, dumplings etc etc
