OK, so it's a chain but the food is great - the service is reliable and often entertaining. Love the food choices here -- everything, and I truly mean everything, is delicious. You cannot go wrong - even with kids, business clients, friends. For weekday lunch, you must arrive early to avoid the crowd. Love watching them make dumplings in front of you.

I'm not a dumpling expert but seeing those done in front of you when entering the restaurant already give some credibility in term of freshness. All the ones I've tried were just succulent.

We like it so much that we went twice to this restaurant. The dim sum are amazingly good, at the entrance there is the kitchen where the staff is making them, interesting to see. We tried different dishes and all were amazing. Try xaolonbao, wontons nice and tasty. We loved it

Had dumplings before but never like these-just stunning!! The restaurant is amazingly clean and to watch the "guys" prepare the food is worth the visit alone. Don't go to Shanghai without eating here..............terrific experience to eat dumplings as they should be !!
