This tiny restaurant makes you feel like you’re eating in someone’s house. The food is fresh and delicious. It’s the spot to go when in Ottawa. I wish we had this quality of dim sum in Montreal.

I was looking for something simple yet tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant did not get all the positive reviews for nothing. It is nothing fancy but simple and good. Prices are good. Good restaurant for family dinner when the kitchen is closed.
