“Outstanding Dim Sum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Our primary visits here are for weekend dim sum, where an absolutely incredible variety of dishes is offered. Most are served from carts, but others are offered at a hot-food counter. I'd estimate the total variety must approach 75 items (plus the menu items), and the dim sum ranges from the typical dumplings to jellyfish, rice in lotus leaf, sea snails, and everything one could imagine. We've tried some our American palates didn't appreciate, but with the most expensive dish at roughly $5, we didn't feel bad having tried it.

As for dinner, Peking duck can be ordered without advance notice, and is absolutely delicious. The scallops on the half-shell are outstanding, especially if you like garlic. Their soups are flavorfully seasoned and full of goodies. We've enjoyed various fish and shellfish dishes here, and have never had a miss. It is always VERY fresh.

Private rooms of various sizes are available for parties.

If you go for weekend dim sum, try to arrive by 11:00 AM, or wait until after 1:00 PM, as the wait can be quite long between those hours.

“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

I have been there a few times and the food has always been excellent. Their Dim Sum on weekends (brunch/lunch) are absolutely worth to go. They offer a lot of seafood you do not get in every place (sea snail salad, jellyfish, shark fin dumplings and soup). For dinner, there is quite a selection of live seafood in aquariums.

When it comes to decoration, this is not a cosy place. It is rather big and tables are scattered like over the floor of a big ballroom. You definitely come for the food, not the atmosphere.

“yummy dimsum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Thanks to our chef friends who live in Houston now, we found a GREAT dimsum place - everything was delicious - and the hall is enormous! We went on a Tuesday, and it was busy, but not too crowded - I can only imagine what the weekend is like.

“Dim sum central,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

If you want dim sum, show up really early on weekends to get better service and a parking spot.

If you want Chinese food in the evening, go elsewhere. This place is great at dim sum but lousy with menu items.

BTW, I don't thnk e service for dim sum is very good.! But the food tastes great.
