Been going here for years. It's a good "middle of the road" with 95% local Chinese customers and various off-menu items and dim sum "to go." There are no tablecloths, no tables for two people, the bathrooms are pretty gross with no paper towels, and...More

PROS *Pork buns were just $1.50 each and could conveniently be ordered to go at the counter, bakery style. *No sauce needed for these pork buns, as the meat inside came sauced. CONS *Pork buns were decent, but they won’t blow you away.

I’ve been dying to go here because I remember the great food from my childhood. But they’re still closed from an accident a few months ago. ☹️ Super disappointed.

We met some friends for the day and they recommended going to Hop Shing for some pork buns. I ate two of them knowing we were eating later. They were delicious and big. My wife had shrimp and rice noodles. These were also very good.

Open for Chinese breakfast dim sum and all day. Cantonese food just like in HK. Reasonable quality dim sum by my Chinese standards. Bad thing is waiters don't speak much English and there is an English menu which you can ask. Rolling carts of dim...More
