    Went there for Father's Day & it was packed.Wait a long time but that was ok becuz it was Father's Day & that's where Dad wanted to go.Dim Sum was not very good. Not many carts.Choices were very slim.

    WORST DIMSUM EVER. Turnip cake was mush. Pork buns were soggy. Gan cao niu he had no flavor and also, yuck. And Chinese broccoli? HOW DO YOU MESS UP CHINESE BROCCOLI? Why does this place have a line?!

    Good food but there was a waitress and a waiter who were extremely rude to my family. We wanted to ask if there was a certain kind of dim sum but they ended up insulting us.

    Go during the week for a quieter environment and hot dim sum. No long waits and your food is made to order.

    Dim sum till 3! I have to say that this place is really solid. The prices are really reasonable (compared to places in Boston & Quincy). I'll be coming back here!

    very authentic Cantonese-styled braised beef stripe noodles, aka Niu Nan Mien. it's a must-try: different from northern Chinese style noodles and IMO much better !

    On Sunday morning don't mess with the "dim sum number caller", the Chinese guy in the black suit, he's intense.

    HUGE wait for dim sum, so get there early to pick up a ticket and then have coffee at the Caribou at the other end of the strip mall. Delicious, cheap, and worth the long line!

    Long line for dim sum on the weekends, but their line numbering process is confusing and stressful. Food was great (try the Chinese spare ribs!) but the stress kinda soured the experience.

    Make sure you tell them before hand that you want the lunch menu, or they will charge your waiter the difference! Great food but horrible business principles. I feel sorry for their staff.

    The Sweet & Sour Chicken is great but ask for extra sauce if you're ordering to go. They only give you a small cup with your order.

    Have a gluten-allergy? Mostly everything is made with rice flour and gluten-free!
