I've been there both for dim sum & for dinner. Everything has been tasty. It's great to find a dim sum place near my home.

I never thought there would ever be a very good Chinese restaurant in the deeper East Bay like Pinole, Hercules, Rodeo areas, but sure enough, my hometown has grown and had become almost gentrified, now having a good dim sum restaurant a la King Valley...More

If you want dim sum from the carts that are pushed around the room, this is good dim sum considering where you are and not having to fight traffic and parking in San Francisco or Oakland Chinatowns. But, go on Saturday or Sunday when everything...More
