We've been going to ABC for many years but recently there has been a change of management. Food is still very good but service has slipped. One of the Managers has left and things seem to go down hill after that. It appears that they are trying to right the ship but only time will tell.

ABC is located in the Metro Center by the water. Ample parking available. The restaurant doesn't.t have atmosphere but the service and food are great. Crab is in season green onion. And garlic crab is a must.

This place used to be one of my favorite places to go for dim sum but after today's visit I don't think I can ever go back. The food is still pretty good but it does not make up for the the service has taken a dive to the worst degree. Perhaps the restaurant realizes that it already has a... More

My go to place for good chinese food and dim sum. Dim sum is one of the best on the Peninsula. Family dinners are fun but can be expensive.

The atmosphere and service are good. The wait staff is helpful and makes an effort to give you a pleasant experience. The food isn't greasy and there is a good assortment of things to choose from - for the beginners trying haw gaw and siu mai to the adventurous ones eating chicken feet and the such.

It is truly nice to have a big dim sum restaurant in a small town. And having available parking close by is icing on the cake. However, I wish I could rely on the food and the service. There are some great dishes that seems consistent such as the bake BBQ buns and some of their sponge cake dessert. There... More

Every time I go to ABC it seem I can never have enough. They have dim sum and regular menu items, but if you get the regular menu you end over spending because you cannot say no when the carts pass by and they have these delicious treats.

Food is always good here. Very authentic. And the service is excellent, at times. That is the problem. This place is very hospital to non Chinese speaking customer. They are friendly and helpful, when they have time. So go there when they are not busy and you will have a fantastic meal. Good friendly service, good food, and a wonderful... More

We went there in 8 pp and ordered different dim sum during lunch time. In general, dim sum are poor. Unfortunately, the services of waitresses are much poor too.
