“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Dinner reservation for 9 (8 adults + one child) was at 7:30 pm. It was a dinner with family and visiting friends. The private dining room was a big plus. 9-course dinner menu (8 entrees + soup)was special order, all superbly prepared and cordially served by friendly and knowledgeable waiters who were attentive throughout the evening. We brought our own wine which added nicely to the dining ambiance. Meaningful conversation, laughters, superb service and good food made for enjoyment by all and a dining experience to remember.

“Dim sum heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is an experience to have during the lunch hours. The dim sum carts zip up to your table and the waitresses very rapidly and efficiently tell you all the selections they have. My kids love it and the prices are fair. Classic Chinese dimsum that includes chicken feet, steamed mochi rice stuffed with pork and shrimp, etc. parking out back is ample. The baked Managua and pork hash are excellent.

“Loud, busy, but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Good place for dim sum. Loud, noisy, very, very busy, but need to be patient to wait your turn for a table. Sundays newspaper has a dining out section that also has a coupon for a cash discount of either 5% or 10%, Try everything, because its that good. Parking lot is busy, so plan accordingly.

“Go where local Chinese go..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

My family loves this place. It is a typical Chinese dim sum restaurant where it is busy, no frills, and you might have to fend for yourself. The food is good and reasonably priced. There is parking in the back (2 hours free if you show your handicap credentials) and the place can be packed with a line out the door.

They do a pickled pigs feet which is one of the best. However, it doesn't come around on the carts and you have to order it. The spinach and shrimp is good too if you want something less salty.

It is on a bus route, so if you don't have a car and you don't want to go to a typical Chinatown or tourist dim sum restaurant, try this place and you will be satisfied.

“Really disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We visited here with extended family, and had a 8-course dinner. The Peking duck was really tasty, and their sea bass. But after that, it was all down hill. The food was really oily, and there was a lot of deep fried dishes in sauce. Service and parking were not an issue, but it really wasn't a special meal.
