    Try the crunchy noodles, see photo - forget what it's called. Sticky rice (with meat inside and wrapped in leaves) and any shrimp dimsum.

    If you don't see a dim sum dish you want, you can ask any of the staff wearing a red vest. They'll hunt down the right cart for you, or fire it from the kitchen.

    Love the dim sum on a cart service. There might be a small language barrier when it comes to ordering. But I'll still visit for the food - shumai, shrimp-veggie dim sum!

    if you don't see what you want or are waiting too long, take matters into your own hands by going up to the cart with your sheet and order it yourself, don't feel bad cuz everyone's doing it too!

    Choose your dim sum from carts-- pork buns, shu mai, noodle "wraps" all good; others may be at your own risk! Fun to try new weird stuff so be adventurous

    Dim sum! Best place I've been to in Boston. Good pork buns, har gao, siu mai, shrimp noodle rolls. A little better than China Pearl, but pretty similar.
  • Pierrick T.
    Fun experience, great variety of dishes. It might be better to have breakfast first if you are not used to eating dumplings in the morning!

    Dear non-Chinese people - ask for xiao long bao, xia jiao, jiu cai jiao, and shao mai. And the waitstaff isn't rude - they're just Chinese. Nothing personal. :)

    If you see this... GET IT. This tapioca dessert with watermelon is a perfect way to end your dim sum.

    Amazing food and incredibly cheap! A ridiculously filling dim sum for five was less than $50. Highly recommend!

    Mainstay of Chinese dim sum in Boston. The feng chang is very good - excellent rice noodles.

    Perfect place to bring my baby in a stroller as it's located on the ground floor, spacious, and has lots of tables.

    Bagging for leftovers cost $1 per package, and you need to do bagging yourself! Better eat them all.

    Sadly, the dim sum isn't that great. Though convenient location near South Station. And seating is quite fast.

    Good for dim sum, not so good for dinner. Canned mushrooms, lackluster shrimp, fishy- tasting fried squid.

    Bring two or more friends at noon on a Sunday. Take a number, wait for a table, gorge yourself on dim sum, and pay no more than $10/person.

    If you arrive when it's crowded, stay close. They pick people at random if a table opens up.

    Sunday dimsum brunch! Ladies pushing the carts can't speak/understand English well; not explain the dish so do your homework; look at the menu/website. Usually 3 pcs per plate.

    Dim sum was good but tea pot was dirty and the customer service was HORRIBLE. We had the LAZIEST waiter ever. We asked for water, he looked like we inconvenienced him. So disappointed. :(
