Open 8am, which is nearing lunch time in California. Everything at this hour was made fresh. The eggplant with fried garlic was excellent, as was the spinach and scallop dim sum.

Mei Sum is known for their dim sum, though I usually end up visiting in the afternoon or evening (not prime time for dim sum). My favorite order isn't exactly on the menu - I order dry beef chow fun with chow sum & garlic...More

We come here every time we visit oahu (which is several times a year). Having tried dim sum at different places throughout the US, I can say this is the best I've had. I highly recommend it.

Dropped in on a weekday to have lunch. The place was busy but not packed. We ordered 4 dim sum dishes and a fried rice. The bill came to just under $30. I think the price was reasonable and the food was average.
