Want some great dim sum without heading to the city well this is your spot. The real deal for authentic Cantonese style Chinese food and dim sum, get there early on weekends as the place gets packed.

Dumplings were uneventful. Two small pieces of plain pork folded in fried dough. No sauce served with them or anything flavorful to go along. Hot tea is served on arrival and was good looseleaf tea. Chairs were dark in color, yet still visibly stained. As...More

Food took forever, waiters ignored us. When the food eventually came, the items came one at a time over the time span of an hour. Stay away from the scallop and tofu dish unless you really really love tofu. It’s a few scallops spread over...More
