“Dim Sum Attack!!!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

If you love Dim Sum like I do, this restaurant needs to be on your list. Nothing fancy just good food, large portions, reasonable prices, very friendly staff.

“Unique experience”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Step out of your comfort zone and try this authentic Asian restaurant some weekend. Be prepared for a crowd! It's packed every weekend, primarily with Asian families. The dim sum (small portions) are brought by your table on trolleys. The friendly servers will tell you about the different dishes they are offering. When you chose what you'd like, they mark a card on your table and give you your hot, fresh food. Try several different things each time you go and you'll learn what you're favorites are. The staff is very friendly and helpful and it's not unusual for guests to chat with whomever is seated nearby. Try it, I love it!

“"Dim Sum that should be left in the Dark"”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My husband and I went here for Dim Sum on July 7th and were very disappointed with the food.
The Chinese Broccoli was cold, hard and not chewable. The barbecue pork dumpling had very little pork in the dumpling. We ordered shrimp dumplings that were stuck to the paper and bottom of the bowl. When we finally got them off the paper they had no taste. The service was terrible.
Definitely would not recommend this place.

“Service, what service?”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

This was our favorite Asian restaurant but the service and food quality continues to decline on each visit. Our appetizer was never delivered and our waiter couldn't be found to complain. Our drinks were never refilled, no one stopped by to see if we needed anything. Only after we had finished dinner did anyone stop by, but only to clear the table.

One entree was tasty, the other was overcooked with a portion that decreases in size each time we dine there.

This place is living on their volume and being one of the only nice Asian restaurants in the area. I won't say don't go there, but set your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

“Best dim sum in Dallas”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We only come here for the Dim Sum, which we have enjoyed at many restaurants in New York city, LA, Houston ... so far J&S is on top of the list. The dimsum here are fresh and bigger portion than at the other restaurants. Service was friendly, which is not common for Chinese restaurants. Some servers speak both Vietnamese and Chinese. Modern decor. Clean.

Definitely will be back.
