I was born and raised in Chinatown, not far from this restaurant at all. However, this was my first time at this place! I can't say the dim sum was good here. First of all, just by looking into the restaurant, you can tell this place was for tourists. You won't find many locals eating here. It was hot when I walked into the restaurant. There were many waiters standing around but none of them initiated services (refilling tea) without you waving an arm for their attention. The dim sum, very small portions. Taste was average - I have had better, say across the street. Price, expensive, and then very expensive for dinner (they charge different prices for dinner). Anything off the dim sum menu was not appealing. I know my dim-sum and I know I won't be coming back!

I went here on a monday night with my boyfriend (who didnt even know what din sum was !!) and we both were pleased. It iscleaner than you excpect from an outside look, and the service is very prompt. The dim sum although a little on the small side was yummy i recommend the steamed shrimp with chive and the mushroom dumplings. The variety is great and very reasonable prices, but the best thing is that dumpligs are served all day and nite !!

This is one of the best Dim Sum restaurants in Chinatown. It is clean and not scary like many of the restarants in the area. The food is delicious, including the main dishes- try the noodles with shrimp, but especially the Dim Sum. I've never been dissapointed.

Good and fresh dimsum with A LOT of options. Service is decent and place is very clean for a chinese restaurant :-). It's hard to find a dimsum place that has both good meat and veggie options and this place has BOTH (ex. yummy roast pork buns or mushroom medly dimsum). Great place to take friends...even the picky ones. Every dimsum basket is a fun surprise to open. They also offer a full menu if you want, but I go for the freash dimsum! My ALL TIME FAVORITE is the duck dimsum... The only draw back for me is the prices add up VERY quickly without realizing it, so make sure you keep track of your tab!

I came here for dim sum on Sunday with a few people and I thought the dim sum was so so....The portions are much smaller than the average sized dim sum you would find at other Chinese restaurants and the taste/flavor wasn't really better. It was the typical dim sum you would find, except at a much smaller portion. I would rather opt for the traditional dim sum with the cart ladies, it feels more like the real dim sum experience. I must say the restaurant is quite clean, which is a big plus. Would recommend it for someone who hasn't been here before. I say, try for yourself and you be the judge. Enjoy.

Stick to the dim sum and don't be afraid to try the vegetarian dim sum platter. Very tasty and it looked very nice. One of the cleanest places to eat in Chinatown.

while the atmosphere is not as "authentic" as some of the other dim sum shops in chinatown, the food is first rate. the menu selection is a spin on traditional dim sum fare, and quite divine to the palate. must tries are the duck dumplings and the pumpkin cake. the service can be a bit slow on weekends when they are at their busiest, but for the most part, the waiters are friendly and helpful. great for groups.
