Besides the Peking Duck, I don't know what I had as my Chinese sister-in-law did the ordering without using a menu. Everything was quite tasty. It was busy, noisy, and the service spotty, but all in all well worth the visit.

Disappointing visit. Went for a dinner for a friend’s event and the food was mediocre. I expected more and it was expensive for the amount of food we ordered. Would not return here.

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
