“Surprising Chinese/dim sum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Never expected to find flavorful Chinese/dim sum in Belize, but this place has it. Our waiter recommended a number of dishes, including the Bruce Lee (5 dim sum items) and the pork and fish specials, and everything was excellent. The green dumplings and the mushroom dumplings were especially good, and considering the low prices (for Americans anyhow), it was a great ending to our Placencia week. Highly recommended!

“A great Chinese Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

We had always liked the food at Tommy's, the previous incarnation of this establishment and we went in expecting more of the same. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the menu had changed and the new food was far better than it used to be. The Dim Sum is fantastic, worthy of a Chinese place in a big city. The staff are attentive and very nice and the atmosphere is comfortable yet exotic. My only complaint was when the big wok had a whole in in so I couldn't get .... the take out fried chicken!! Probably the best fried chicken I have ever eaten.
This place does it all.

“Newly renovated and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The atmosphere is nice as well as the selection of music. The service was excellent but the server made 2 mistakes on 2 orders having to send 1 order back to the kitchen and the other order we decided was too much of a hassle. Amy, the Owner is very pleasant and accommodating. The chef is very creative in his presentation of dishes. Even with the mistakes, the food stood alone and is a must do if you truly creative dishes.

“Authentic feeling dim sum and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We came after reading a very good review in the local paper. The chef, newly married in China to the owner, was classically trained in preparing dim sum and it shows. All of them were delicious,. We had the 7 piece sampler first and then 2 more of our favorites and the chow mein. This last dish was better than it sounds with homemade noodles and fresh vegetables. The owner came over to talk to us and the decor was very nice, both inside and out, as was the service. When we had a question on the composition of one of the drinks, the bartender came to our table with the details. It was altogether a great evening and we'll be back.
