    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!

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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...

    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

    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.

    Guaranteed diarrhea. Avoid like the plague. Extremely outdated environment and food will make you sick.
