“Very good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Went there on the weekend with a couple of friends, the tables were almost all full. The boss and waitress organized pretty efficient. There were great choices, you do not have to just go there for seafood(e.g. shark fin) . Lots of options for vegetarian as well. I especially like the fired rice and vegetable stir fry. I will certainly visit again for my next Ottawa trip.

“Unfortunate”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Unfortunately this restaurant serves Shark Fin Soup, the real thing which in todays eco conscious environment is no longer acceptable for which is the reason I am giving it a poor rating. The food is average with a great selection. The environment is not so pleasant as it is located in a basement with a musty smell.

“Best Dim Sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

I've been going to this place for Dim Sum for a couple of years. The food never fails to delight. It is well prepared, tasty and reasonably priced. Lineups can be a problem on holidays/weekends. Decor is boring, but, the food is unbeatable, especially the fish. My favorite is the squid.

“Good Dim Sum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

This restaurant combines great Dim Sum with good service and as an added bonus you can order any dish even if you cant see it on the cart.

We found the fried squid a bit greasy for our liking but the quality of the dishes is high, the service very quick and friendly and while the atmosphere is nothing special it is a great value for the money.

We did not have to wait for a table, they brought our drinks and made sure our water was refilled without ever having to ask and as far as the food goes well we all left very satisfied each one of us having gotten at least one helping of their favorite dish.

All of the standard Dim Sum dishes were present and some non traditional ones.

“A little piece of China”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a great place. Don't come for the decor, but the food is great, fresh and well-priced. Service is just fine. Dim sum is a great bargain - dishes from $2.50 to $5.50, and 5 dishes was much too much food for 2 people.
