Went with my brother and nephew who were in from NYC. 20 minute wait was tolerable. Family style seating and a menu with pictures. High quality, low grease, delicious Dim Sum. Inexpensive and way better than the cost would indicate.

Four of us were salivating as we looked for this place based on TA reviews - AND WE WERE SO DISAPPOINTED. Steamed choices were gooey and tasteless, pan fried dim sum full of oil and TASTELESS. We eat Chinese food all over US and the world, cook Chinese food, and all four of us agreed that this was the worst we've ever had.

Yjis small cafe in Chinatown allows you to order dim sum off a menu rather than the usually carys. Advantage - you get what you want when you want it, freshly made to order without it sitting on a steam tray cart, Disadvantage: a little less choice and fewer surprizes. The dim sum are excellent. The portions are small but inexpensive, which is better for 1-2 people sharing, as you can try more things without filling up. It is small and best sought out at odd hours to avoid a wait, The 2 of us got out for under $20.

stumbled on this..and we loved the Dim SUm and the choice available. And the staff were great.... and we felt it was frequented by locals (am I allowed to say that?)...we had a great evening here so much so we ordered 3 rounds of dim sum. Oh yeah even the picky New Yorker with us had nothing bad to say.....

Not a fancy expensive place. Small. Can be crowded at times. Excellent food.
