We parked our car at a parking garage which charged $10 a hour. We waited for our table about 10 minutes. The shrimp dim sum was delicious. The pork buns are good. The service was excellent.

Don’t be fooled by the western name of this restaurant - they actually serve decent dim sum here! (And I’m Chinese) Normally when my husband and I have dim sum, we order 6-7 dishes between us and it works out to be a good amount...More
