Its a very clean and charming place. The service was good and the Dimsums were some of the best I've had. the place is crowded at lunch time but a 15-20 minute wait was worth it. The food quality is very good.

We have come here many times. Just about s year ago the food quality fell off and when we complained we were ignored so we stopped going. Then last week we stopped by for a trail test and found the food quality had returned! Not great but very good. We are not fans of duck served any way and Capital... More

Outstanding food and service. The 7 course menu for groups of 10 or more was excellent. Managers Gordon and Charles were great to work with. The green beans were the best I have ever had. Very good Dim Sum. And the soup and the other courses were hot and delicious. the private room with the large round table and large... More

Ive seen this restaurant many times at The Irvine Spectrum but never had a chance to visit until yesterday. My daughter and I went for lunch. The restaurant was not crowded at all and we sat immediately. We figured out what we wanted and waited. And waited. We then noticed that every patron in there was Asian and getting service.... More

This the first of two Chinese Dim Sum restaurants that I went to on 2 consecutive days, the other in Monterey Park, Ca. Comparing the two, not only the prices for this one is much higher, the taste and quality were also not as good. This restaurant is located in South Orange County and in a very nice shopping center.... More

We invited a few friends with my family on Christmas day for casual lunch. Dim-sum quality and service were excellent. I recommend the following : children/sticky rice wrapped in leaves, beef meat ball, shrimp dumpling, white carrot pan cake, braised pepper beef and fried rice. I am sure you will be a happy man after all these dishes.

This is the place to go for dim sum. It's very fresh, good quality, great selection. The servers that come to the table offer you an attractive selection of items and know enough English to explain to non-Chinese customers what each dish contains. There are also menu items to order such as noodle dishes, vegetable dishes, interesting soups to share.... More

This is a good place for dim sum with good, typically brisk, service. The food is brought out on carts as well as hand-carried by the servers. They have a great variety (see photo), and one can order off the a la carte menu as well. We had the Peking Duck, in addition to all the dim sum dishes, and... More

A classy Chinese restaurant with good selection of a variety of dishes. Well prepared, tender sizzling beef and excellent seafood noodles are highlights. Service was prompt and efficient. The dim sum is also very good at lunch. Not crowded even when the trendier restaurants that share a shopping plaza with Capital Seafood have huge waits - this speaks to the... More
