“Food was between average and very good”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Our first experience at this place was being guests at a recent wedding banquet reception. When food is prepared and cooked in mass quantity, the taste and quality can suffer, which it did at this reception.

One of these days we would go back to try them out for diem sum and regular dinner.

Odd placement of the hand dryer in the women's rest room. It's in the opposite location of the sink so one could can slip on the water trail on the tile floor from the sink to the hand dryer.

“Great portions, yummy food”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by as a party of 6 about an hour before closing time. The staff were prompt and professional. The restaurant was clean and well-lit. The menu offered a great variety for each category with dishes varying in price range. Overall, the average price was very reasonable. The dishes we ordered were delivered quickly. The presentation was impressive and the food was delicious. The portions were decent compares to the price. We will definitely come back to this restaurant...often!

“"Best dim sum in SF"”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Everyone thinks that Chinatown has the best dim sum but we can't seem to find any in the past few visits. It's worth the drive. We went there twice on our trip. The food was fresh, tasty and well worth the price. Loved the crispy tofu wrapped shrimp, shrimp dumplings, shrimp stuffed eggplant. The noodles were prepared exactly how we ordered it. Everything was made to order. Loved how they had their elegant chopsticks in wrappers, white linen table setting. Everything was clean.

“Food was tasteless; presentation good”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Took my mother there for her birthday (9 of us) and selected one of the banquet menus and made a reservation. When we got there, we had to wait half an hour for some reason before they would even come to our table. There was a wedding going on also and that may explain the slow service and quality of food. The presentation of the all the dishes were beautiful but the taste was bland. We have eaten at many chinese restaurants: Koi Palace in Daly City, , Hong Kong Lounge in Millbrae, Harbor Village at the Embarcadero (not there anymore) and many chinese restaurants in Chinatown, Richmond and Sunset and I have to say that this was the worst. They also forgot one dish in the menu.

“Great banquet facility”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We had a banquet for about 60 people there. The food was very good, the service excellent. It was so good we went back for dim sum the next day which was also excellent.
