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

    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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
