Have not been here for a long time and can't say I would come back again. They still do Dim Sum the old fashion way of wheeling carts around.......food gets cold quickly if people are not buying everything off the carts right away

Located on the second floor of this Chinese shopping centre, I never knew it was there before but glad we discovered it. Probably the best place for dim sum in the city. The restaurant was a large size and every table was full with a line up down the hall. Every group of guests in line get a number so it is very well organized. I'm told thiit is always this busy on Sunday afternoons.

The dim sum carts are brimming with fresh, steaming dim sum and a great selection too The food was excellent and the carts showed up frequently so you were never waiting to eat.

Many of the servers do not speak English or do not speak it clearly which is ok by me. We are vegetarian and eat fish/seafood and there was still a lot to choose from for us. Service was efficient and quick.

I like the photos at the entrance of all of the celebrities and public figures that have dined here. Cute.

I will definitely go back and look forward to trying their other menu items beyond dim sum.

Finest Chinese food about.

Always fully booked. - book ahead especially Friday, Saturday and Sundays

Private rooms. Often with local celebs.

Some dishes very costly - but probably worth it!

Only special occasions for me.
