A superb eatery with authentic Chinese food, an excellent dim sum selection and a wide range of the old favourites. The service was great. The staff are very friendly and informative. My Chinese colleague's family recommended this place and I was delighted to see so many Chinese diners alongside me in the restaurant - 'proof of the pudding is in... More

I'd have to say this is one of my favorite dim sum places in Calgary. The dim sum is ordered from the checklist sheet vs being pushed around the carts, which is good if you know what you want, because it comes out piping hot, just the way I like it. I usually just get the usual staples to judge... More

We've been coming here for a few years, and every single time, an excellent meal. The flavor and preparation of the meals is without compare to other chinese food in Calgary. Always perfectly done, always tasty. Not overly greasy, over-sauced, overcooked, etc - always just right. The staff is extremely pleasant, the restaurant is always spotlessly clean and it's just...

The dim sum quality is same as usual, not bad at all. They keep up with the quality. Customer service is better than 1+ years which the owner would greet and appreciate the customers. The issues we had this time is the BBQ pork bun. The dough was really tough. The steamed mushroom rice roll was put in a bowl... More

Already a popular place for Chinese, but the added cleanliness of the restaurant just makes us keep going back. The owner is always sweeping the floors, making it so clean unlike other restaurants. This fall, they have a sale on oysters - $5 a piece. It was so fresh and cooked perfectly! I recommend the oysters with eggplant hot pot... More

Food was really good, ordered a few things and chicken fried rice. The rice came 15 min after the others when I asked the server he told me it was normal for the rice to come at the end of the meal. The other tables received their rice with there meals. I asked to talk to the manager because the... More

Pretty good quality Chinese food with good service and reasonable price. If you like authentic Cantonese style Chinese Dim sum and/or dinner, it is a nice place to go in north part of Calgary.

This is how this restaurant works: you mark on the order form which dim sum you want. The waiter then takes the form to the computer and enters the items you've checked. He then returns and place a new printout of the items you've ordered. The printout has a time on it. Then our food didn't show up after 30... More

My wife and I love the food here and go regularly. The Ginger Beef is amazing. Everything we have tried has been great. Ambiance of the place leaves something to be desired, but the food is great. Go eat some food there.
