Dumplings were uneventful. Two small pieces of plain pork folded in fried dough. No sauce served with them or anything flavorful to go along. Hot tea is served on arrival and was good looseleaf tea. Chairs were dark in color, yet still visibly stained. As...More

Food took forever, waiters ignored us. When the food eventually came, the items came one at a time over the time span of an hour. Stay away from the scallop and tofu dish unless you really really love tofu. It’s a few scallops spread over...More

Broad menu spanning tourist favorites to many things natives eat, nicely prepared and modestly prices. Presentation functional but not intended to impress Michelin.

They got good dimsum although service needs improvement! I love their xiao long pao, hakao, fried taro pao, sticky rice in lotus leaf! I always order to go for my favorite ones if you want to skip poor service!
