    Rude service

    Mmmmmmm dim sum + free parking

    The best take out in Arlington. Get the Kung-Po chicken and sweet sour pork.

    A previous tip is right. The service here is kind of rude but the food is pretty amazing.

    Poor quality chicken.

    Anthony Larson · August 31, 2014
  • Barrett L.

    Pretty good but also pretty pricey for dim sum

    Jiangsu rib and China Garden beef are very nice!

    Location is inside the mall area past the CVS and up the escalator.

    Why does dim sum taste better when it's served by pushy middle-age Chinese staff? Why ask why. Bon appetit!

    Sam Lee · August 17, 2013

    Dinner set meal was mediocre... Taste has gone down in past years and the chef doesn't make the chinese food the right way... Bland and cooked wrong... Disappointing...

    Food is good. If you want Pineapple buns get them or order them first because they go quick.

    Paul M · May 13, 2013
  • Denny S.

    Horrible service. Don't bother coming after 1:30 - even though they say they are open until 3. They run out of food. Yes, a restaurant runs out of food. Oh, and I was yelled at... Good times.

    Never order more items than there are people at the table. While the items are small they are more filling than you think.

    Best Cantonese Chinese food in this area. Stuffed Crispy Duck with Taro, Tea-smoked Duck, Stuffed bean Curd and seasonal greens...

    Starting at $7.95, lunch specials come in a styrofoam container: one scoop of fried rice (soy sauce and very little egg), a spring roll, and meat dish.

    If you have a friend that can speak Chinese, bring them.

    Dim sum on Saturdays and Sundays! Beat the rush and arrive before noon.

    Excellent food and place to hang around.

    I come here for Dim Sum as often as I can with my gram. The servers are all nice and always eager to serve. The shrimp dumplings, chow fun, and con gee (gook) are amazing! I give 5 stars to this one!

    Despite rumors of sanitary shortcomings, I've never had a problem with the food. The staff on the other hand, won't make you feel comfortable. Read more

    Once you get past the hostile hostess at the door, the food is very good. The food arrives as it is cooked, so you'll be eating in shifts unless you eat family style.

    Akashi Jin · April 30, 2010
  • Harry W.

    If you want shrimp dumplings or chicken feet, don't come here. They will promise it's coming for an hour until you ultimately fill up on the lukewarm food.

    Harry W · March 6, 2010

    Scallion dumplings are good. Order more than one...the chart doesn't come by often.
