No matter how early you get to Koi Palace, it will always be a crowded and chaotic. But to their credit- they do have a system, it seems to work. I'm just not a fan of chaos. The food is good, (except the sticky rice)...More

Overrated! We waited over an hour to get in. The service is terrible. The waiter/waitress are so rude if you don't speak Chinese. The food is not that good. We are from Chicago and the Dimsum in Chicago is way better than this!

We got there before opening time, had to take a number, and finally got seated after about an hour. Not worth the wait. The only reason we ate here was because visitors from another country wanted to eat here.

Unless reservations are made, be prepared to wait. I am unsure if reservations have a party requirement or if they even can be made for dim sum. Dim sum is served during the day, and dinner service at night. This place is always busy. The...More

Great service and great food. The only problem item was calamari. Needed more tea, turned top over and presto, pot taken and replaced.

It's a very popular Chinese restaurant in the area. A lot of dash choices and decent taste. You won't go wrong to choose it when eating out with friend and families.

Always need to wait over half to one hour to be sit. Dim sum is having many choices compare to other Chinese dim sum restaurants. Taste is better on the weekdays than weekend. Not sure the reason but assume weekend is just too busy.

It took us a while to go through the whole menu, as there were so many dishes and specials. The beef and scallop combination was delicious. Probably the best beef I have ever had in a Chinese restaurnat. Large flavorful chunks, tender, and cooked to...More

My second visit. Food ok. Server not so good. Paid more attention to Asian diners and we only white dinners in at that time. Some food was cold & sent back. It looks like they just did a micro-wave to warm. Do not think I...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
