    Loved it! Beautiful surroundings of an old fashion theater make dinner extra enjoyable. Delicious rice and crap rangoons! Drinks are strong and cheap. Blue Hawaii!

    Get the xiao long baos, the no miy guy, low buk oh, and hawr gao. You won't be sorry! I go to school in nyc and their chinatown dim sum doesn't compare to ours ;)

    Delicious brunch with many different small plates. Very well priced and nice location. Better go there with a Chinese friend.

    This gigantic ballroom is surrounded with huge back-lit photographs of Hong Kong! Bizarre and yet a great place for dim sum. -Tania Peterson, Top Chef Just Desserts

    Dumplings are delicious, cocktails are non descript but tasty, and tons of Crab Rangoon

    Best place for dim sum! Come on Sundays with a large group for an amazing brunch alternative.

    Shrimp encrusted with crispy taro root had a delicious flavor & presents some textural fun.

    A classic Boston spot for dim sum in a former theater which was converted into a dining room

    If you can talk in Cantonese, it will be better. And try the Peking duck (y)

    My parents come here every week. That's proof enough for me that this is as good as authentic dim sum gets.

    You have to be selective or you'll be too full to roll out of here!

    Actually called "Empire Garden." Enormous dim sum joint in a converted theater. High ceilings, language barriers greasy food, low prices, and a shitload of Chinese people. I endorse.

    Search the tiki drink menu until you "find what you're looking for" then get exactly that ;)

    Do not come here if...it's new year's eve because it'll take you an hour+ to get a drink let alone order your dinner.

    I watched the manager put the entire bill in his pocket. Makes me think the waitresses barely get paid. I was so unbelievably sick after eating here I would NOT recommend it.

    If any staff member asks about a tip don't give one. That's rude.

    I ordered a pu-pu plate for two (or whatever that thing's called). Yuck. The food was oily and didn't taste good. Will not come back.
