We went on Saturday afternoon. It was still busy. The dim sum was good even though we didn't know what we were eating. The staff explained each dish so we could get something we wanted to try

Boo-hoo...let me start off with saying that I have been to many places for Dim Sum. This is not where you want to go, for several reasons. The first time we went the place was rented out for a wedding (no problem). So we went on a different day, the dim sum was nice with a moderate amount of variety,... More

It was a first time for dim sum dining as a family with 7 and 9 year old.....one couple had recently traveled to Hong Kong and the other couple had one experience at Chinatown in San Francisco. The food carts were many, however in many cases it was difficult to understand the server due to the background noise in the... More

We came for Dim Sum and weren't disappointed. The cart pretty much met us right when we sat down and kept out table full of a variety of delicious treats. They cleared our table quickly and were very friendly! Would recommend to go again!

We had dim sum and some of it was very good....and some not so good. Everything was served with a sauce, some of which didn't need a sauce. Shrimp made its appearance in a number of dishes e.g., bacon-wrapped shrimp, shrimp buns, etc. There were numerous dishes to choose from and servers regularly appeared with carts of cold or hot...

Some of the best dim sum in Atlanta! Went with a group of 10 which the place is perfect for in the evenings to share a ton of dim sum and noodles. We ordered family style complete with multiple rounds of drinks. By the end of the night i was worried we were facing a steep bill since the dim... More

A variety of dumplings, chicken feet, spicy and non-spicy flanken ribs. That's just a little bit of what they offer. Like any dim-sum restaurant, servers will bring carts of food to your table and you will choose what you want. I've tried about one half of what they offer over the years. I'm looking forward to many more visits.

This place is good I guess for foreigners. I know that Chinese stop going there ever since some Vietnamese bought the place The staff don't speak Chinese and actually nor do the Asians there coz they're Vietnamese people. The food there has inevitably gotten some SE Asian influence. Nothing wrong there but it's not really a Chinese restaurant anymore.

The dim sum was served quickly and hot. Good about drink refills too. They have a menu but everyone seems to eat from the dim sum carts. We've been here a few times and live north of Atlanta but make the drive.
