Food was very good, delicious. Cost was overpriced. They charged us a surcharge for a group of 4. Not keen to go back, but maybe still would because the food was good. I'd just be careful about the bill and groups. That left a sour taste in our mouths.

we are okay with their dinner offers but the dim sum is the best in this area!

For dim sum lovers, this is the place. A wide range of delicious choices is served daily from an illustrated menu rather than rolling carts. Many seafood dishes are also available. Service is speedy.

This is a very good, high-priced Cantonese restaurant where every dish is at least $20, including vegetable and noodle dishes. We ate our Thanksgiving dinner here :-) so didn't complain. My Cantonese husband found the food very authentic and especially loved the winter melon soup, as did our 5-year-old daughter. The seafood with crispy noodles and shrimp and scallops with basil are also highly recommended.
