good variety of asian food - dim sun, noodles, etc. kinda pricey but it's the galleria. portions are suppose to be single serving but large enough to be family style. had the mooshoo chicken for $14. it was good but could have used some soy sauce. very dry they put the hoison on the side. i've had better.

This was my second or third visit to this relatively small restaurant is located in the Galleria near Nordstrom's. The décor is plain, like a Hong Kong noodle house. They serve noodle and rice dishes, as well as dim sum. For the dishes we tried, the taste is authentic and the service good. The price is relatively inexpensive, especially considering the location. The restaurant is not fancy/formal, no large tables (that I saw). A great place to eat while shopping at the mall, but you may need to wait around peak periods.

Excellent Chinese food. Flavors are just like China. Portion sizes are good and everything is made fresh to your order. This coming from a connoisseur of Chinese food

The Dim Sum is GREAT!. Siao Mai are tender and tasty with the shrimp and pork. Shanghai soup buns are to die for. Pan fried dumplings - yummy

This place is great. The vegetable dumplings are excellent and we've never had a bad meal here. I was hesitant to try it a first, being located in a mall, but I was so pleasantly surprised. The staff can be a bit on the dry side some times, but overall the experience is good and the food is great. Must try if you are in the Galleria!

For mall food, it doesn't get any better than this. Located inconspicuously near Nordstrom's in the Galleria IV, this Chinese restaurant offers some of the best dim sum dishes (although limited in scope), as well as other excellent dishes of all sorts, including true Chinese dishes, not just Chinese-American dishes.

Highly recommended dishes I've eaten include: siu mai, pork, shrimp and chicken dumplings, dim sum platter (enough for two people), sticky rice, Shanghai soup dumplings, Hunan chicken, hot & sour soup, shrimp in lobster sauce, and pad thai (a different take, with a tomato base). I do not recommend the General Tso's chicken, as it is completely different from any other I've ever eaten, and is more like a sweet & sour chicken than the usual presentation.

This place does a big lunch business, but service is quick. Portions are generally very large, and prices are a little high, but what you'd expect to pay in a nice restaurant in a nice mall.
