    Their Dim Sum is good, especially the Siew Mai. Porridge with Century Egg is good too. Not to forget their Egg Tarts, where all 3 variants, the Original, Pandan and Coconut Tarts tastes heavenly good!

    Staffs were busy chit chatting at the corner in front us and none of them realized we have our hand raised and calling them for more than 15 mins, just to order our tea and get our order card.

    Good dim sum! Busy even on a Tuesday morning! Fried rice noodles were delicious!!! Self serve, at least when we were there. Hours: 6am - 2pm.

    This is one of the best dim sum house yet; most of the usual dishes are up to notch but it is definitely on a pricey side.

    A lot of selection. Come early to get a better aselection of dim sum. As chinese proverb goes, early bird always have worm to eat.

    Fairly good dimsum. Has a wide selection to choose from. The only downside is the food gets rather cold when you reach your table.

    Egg tart so so, porridge meat fishy, 大东包 better, but the Chee Cheong fan so smooth and the lotus leaf covered 糯米鸡 good

    good dim sum, fast due to self service nature. unfortunately don't serve the good chili sauce, they only have the sweet chili sauce type.
