I was told by my local (Chinese) friends that this was one of the better dim sum place in South Bay - though clearly not the best. Found this to be true; a fairly large variety of dim sum and other dishes. Very crowded during...More

service was horrible, the food was good but if you need another drink or want to order another dish, forget it. You have to get up and find a waiter!

Folks, this is not what good Chinese good should be. It is however acceptable, sort of a C to B- type food. Decor is good, the best of all Chinese eatery in Castro street. Service is good to spotty. You have to try to get...More

Typical of its type. A good sticky rice in leaf, but skimpy on Chinese sausage. Dumplings, shu mai all fine; "spare ribs" fattier than usual. Large regular menu including some exotica. Abalone still available, but at $60 a pop. Inexplicably the place stopped sending out...More
