    Average Chinese food at a pretty high price. Had to ask to be moved as we were sat next to the door into the pot cleaning area.

    Come here very often for the classic pork and steamed prawn dumplings - goes very well with Tiger Beer. Service and atmosphere are very, very poor though.

    Very nice dumplings!

    Ian Wyness · September 5
  • Paula P.

    I have no idea why This place poorly ranked! The dumplings are amazing!!!

  • Andreas C.

    Despite the freshly made Dim Sum being made live, this is some of the worst Chinese I've ever had. Recommend avoiding

  • James W.

    Been here a couple of times now and it's definitely one of the better restaurants in China Town. Enjoy!

    Dimsums are delicious

  • Etienne P.

    Soup dumplings

    Etienne Pollard · July 5
  • Chris C.

    I'd say the rating (6.1) is about right. Nothing special and a little overpriced for the dumplings

    Chris Coughlan · April 30
  • Aaron W.

    Service was quick. The soup broth was a bit bland but the dumplings were good.

    Aaron Wermuth · March 31
  • George R.

    Fantastic place for dim sum. The soup filled dumplings are incredible!

    George Rivers · March 14
  • Artur F.

    Good food but staff need some more training and when we were in the place there was something leaking from the ceiling... Avoid duck soup which contains meat with small bones.

  • dummyhof

    No one dedicated to serving water. This is not real chinese!

    dummyhof · January 1
  • dummyhof

    Just don't, unless you like being burped in your face, and eating something similar to street food.

  • Nicola D.

    Despite the other opinions, the food was good and standard with other prices around China Town (can't compare with All you can eat Menus)

    Nicola DL · December 7, 2014
  • Hela S.

    Nice food but the service is really disappointing. Especially when it's 15% of the bill.

    Hela Slim · December 2, 2014
  • Clinton S.

    I agree with Julia

    Clinton Sweet · October 28, 2014
  • Teresa L.

    Great dim sum, but only during lunch. Dinner menu is avoidable.

    Teresa Luo · October 19, 2014
  • Ana L.

    The dumplings with soup inside are great!! Totally an experience to eat them properly!

    Open late. Deep fried chicken was too greasy but the dumpling platter was great

    Delicious dim sum : soft and fresh. The other dishes are also very nice, especially the egg fried rice and deep fried chicken. Best in Chinatown so far.

    Seafood dumplings are the best ones I've eaten so far

    Dim sum before 6 pm.

    Try a wide range of Xiao Long Bao - exceptionally tasty at this spot. Warning: avoid spicy pork Xiao Long Bao unless you wanna burn.🔥💥💀

    terrible food and terrible service

    The waitress confused me with different types of water. I just asked for a simple water. The service was absolutely horrible. 👿🙌

  • Lisa N.

    Spicy pork soup dumplings were delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

    Lisa Nuske · March 20, 2014
  • Valentina D.

    Food is good. Service fast but basic, don't deserve any praise. Service of 12.5% is included. Don't understand why...

    Valentina Dal Mas · March 5, 2014
  • David C.

    The veggie noodles were very good actually

    David Chow · March 2, 2014
  • Tiffany L.

    the Peking duck is a huge disappointment. the skin is not crispy enough at all. looks the same as normal roasted duck. the waiter doesn't even know how to slice the duck properly!

    Tiffany Lam · February 16, 2014
  • Tiffany L.

    bad service. the dough of the dumplings are too thick and break easily. the outer skin of the dumpling should be smooth and shiny, and thin enough that it won't break. not rough.

    Tiffany Lam · February 16, 2014
  • Paola

    Biggest shithole! 😒 just don't go here! Service was shit, food was meh, my friend had to change her order 3 times! And the service charge is ridiculous

    Do not try anything else than dumplings.

    Argiris G. · December 28, 2013
  • Emilio L.

    Dumplings are as good as in Shanghai... Go for the soup dumplings. Waiters are nice but as in china, service is just average

    Emilio Lara · December 21, 2013

    Michelle Gambier · October 6, 2013

    Just say no, even if you are hungry and wet do yourself a favour and keep walking

    Give it a miss! Very disappointing dim sum. The noodles are good and that's about it.

    I am shocked about the comments below... Food was excellent and the service was fine. Soup dumplings are highly recommended.

  • Steven K.

    This is defiantly my spot to go to with all the different choices in Chinese town. Food is was high priced but went down a treat.

    Classic Pork Xiao Long Bau :)

    Julia Sandler · September 1, 2013

    Busy and hardworking staff my be mistaken for rude by those we don't see beyond their own needs.
