“Fun place in Chinatown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

This was a great lunch. You can order dim sum or a regular meal (or both). The portions are huge for the regular items! We ordered the BBQ pork buns from the Dim sum menu (my favorite - they were so good!) and then a meal each, but we easily could have shared one meal. Overall, the cheapest meal in our entire week long stay in Northern California! Ask for a soda if you don't want the complimentary tea.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2010

The place isn't fancy, but the food is fab. I got takeout 2 straight nights. Beef with bell pepper chow fun (which was as good as I've ever had) accompanied by spring roll and fried chicken wing appetizers, both very good. This was actually enough for both dinner plus my next day's lunch. 2nd night I had beef with broccoli plus fried oyster appetizers, both great. All the portions were large & the prices very reasonable.

“Delicious & economical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2010

We were at the restaurant on Sunday just after 11 a.m. for Dim Sum. We had
Gai Lan (Chinese broccoli)-very tender; roast duck (a bit fatty); char siew (BBQ pork) - sweet; spring rolls (crispy), claypot chicken rice (fresh); and tapioca cream (light and smooth). The service was friendly and attentive but got hectic around noon, so we had to remind them of an order. It costs $45 for three and we had left over to take home. The restaurant is located at the T-end of Waverly Place, where you get off the beaten path from Grant the main drag.
