We've been going there for nearly a decade for dim sum, at least a couple times a month. The food is fantastic, and it actually has recently improved and the variety has increased (we were told they brought in a new dim sum chef from Hong Kong in April or May). Dinner entrees are very good (but not amazing), but we are always treated well, and the dim sum is the best around. We have tried probably 10-12 others, including highly rated places in Flushing and on 8th Ave. in Brooklyn, and this is consistently our favorite.

I'd heard some good things about this place, but maybe that was for Dim Sum. I went there for dinner and both of our meals were bland. My peach, chicken, and black bean dish was bland, and the peaches tasted canned. The "beef' my friend ordered was tough and bland as well. I doubt I would give this a second chance for Dim Sum. I didn't like the fried dumplings either. They may have been fried in tepid oil, so the consistency was a bit off.

We've been going here for about 12 years on and off. At the right time of day (11:00 -12:30) the variety is good. Mostly its delicious. Sometimes an off day. But mainly consistantly good. The service is off-hand and not so good. But for the food, mostly a good experience

upon reading "THE BEST IN CHINATOWN" we decided to give it a try.I live right outside of Chinatown and believe me this is far from the best.The meat was tough,seafood was non descript and the restaurant appeared dirty(who knows what the kitchen must look like).Shop around for the best.

I was invited to a Chinese banquet and the food was so delicious that i came back several times. Don't listen to the qvetchs who do not know how to order and they don't know really great Cantonese food. it is divine.

This restaurant has seen better days.The food is mediocre and the service is lacking.I'm not an ignorant tourist,but I know what good food should taste like.Avoid this place,otherwise throw your money on a lottery ticket.

Please ignore the reviewer that said that they don't serve dim sum anymore. Of course they still do! This is a typical Cantonese New York Chinatown restaurant, dim sum in the morning and family style dinner at night. Still open for wedding banquets. Noodles and duck sauce on the table??! Thats only for ignorant tourists who don't know any better. I've been going to this place since I was a kid. Sure the decor looks ratty and the food wasn't as good as when it first opened, but it's pretty authentic as far as taste. Ingredients are always fresh, just make sure you know what's in season.
