Best Dim Sum! Best steam dumplings. Not cheap but worth it. Get their early for Dim sum or you'll have to wait.

Some funky stuff on that menu. Not a typical chinese restaurant. Very expensive; it's definitely meant as a place to eat with large groups and share, family-style.

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.
