Not sure what will be other choices in Ottawa, dim sum is using a cart to move over and usually food are cold when served. Price is not cheap but may be that is average in Ottawa. Will not come again.

Some contributers to this site seem to be in a snit simply because this isn't a Chinatown restaurant and has no pretension to being so. The menu is genuinely interesting, and we have twice had decent meals here in a no-frills basement situation. Service is...More
