“Good dim sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

I have been here before for dinner and it was decent but I like going here for dim sum. Is it the best dim sum in town? No it's not but it's good. Has all the regular standard dim sum fare....har gao(shrimp), siu mai(w/pork), char siu bao, etc..and the restaurant doesn't have the crazy wait that you have when you go to Mayflower or Koi Palace..but again those restaurants have better dim sum at higher prices..

“Surprisingly good dim sum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I visit recently on Sep, 2013. And the dim sum is surprising good after the change of management. The waiting takes ~15-20 mins, but worth it. Price slightly cheaper than Koi Garden which is also located in Dublin

“Dim sum in suburbia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The dim sum was just as good as the best places in Oakland and San Francisco, heavenly. Everything was fresh, plump and perfectly flavored. After living in Contra Costa for over 13 years, I am just thrilled that the kind of food I had as a child has made it's way over the Bay.

The newest trend of dim sum is not the rolling carts but you fill out a 4 color printed form, choosing the dishes you like. I never liked the rolling carts because if you had a poorly placed table, you got all the leftovers and unpopular dishes. With the check form system you get exactly what you want.

Two more plusses - a large parking lot (although it was quite full by the time I left) and the public areas of the restaurant were very clean.

Get your dim sum cravings satisfied here!

“Dim Sum - yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

They do have a menu of other food but we did the Dim Sum. Although there were some items we liked more than others, everything we tried was very good - we tried 8 different items. From what I could tell, it was very authentic. The person we were with thought they would bring carts around with the food on it and you could select but that wasn't the case - you just choose off a menu. What was nice is they brought one or two things to the table at a time so everything was fresh/hot.
