“Quick service, unique dining experience”

Love the "family" style service with large lazy Susan to share dishes. Description of dish when added to table would be most helpful.

“Can't beat the parking and speed of service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2010

I came here for weekday dim sum, which needed to be quick since I was with a friend from out of town who wanted to check out the International District but needed to catch a bus less than an hour from our arrival time. This place was perfect -- it had its own parking lot and lots of tables (other places in the ID tend to be smaller and require you to park on the street). The ha gow (shrimp dumplings), siu mai (beef/pork dumplings), lo bak goh (fried daikon cakes), and lo mai gei (glutinous rice and chicken steamed in banana leaves) passed muster. (A childhood of eating dim sum with my parents and extended family in Toronto, Vancouver, Hong Kong, and Chicago is my basis for comparison.) There were also cheung fun (shrimp wrapped in rice noodle), deep-fried taro root, rice congee, egg custard tarts and sesame rice balls in circulation but we didn't have room for these. Next time!

Additional auspicious signs: Asian locals eating here (men in suits on lunch at one table and mothers with children at another). Most servers speak English. Service is quick -- as with all dim sum, don't be afraid to be assertive in telling your servers no if you don't want something they're offering.

“My family likes to come...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2008

My family likes to come here a lot. The food is great and the prices competitive. However, like a lot of places in Chinatown, the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired and the restrooms fall into the stereotype. It's an okay place for casual or group dining. Like I said, the food's great, but in my opinion these dim sum restaurants are all the same. I can't tell the dishes apart.
