    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.

    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!
