    Favorite restaurant in DC, hands down. Amazing Happy Hour! Best brunch in DC, includes entree, unlimited dim sum, and unlimited mimosas. Best deal in DC! Very busy at brunch, make a reservation.

    The chicken puffs are delicious, crispy eggplants, the chicken potstickers and the shiitake scallops are all musts. I am not sure that was English, but you don't care when you are in food heaven.

    HH is M-F, 4-7 pm. $5 cocktails and $3 select dim sum. The drinks are tasty! Try the lychee + rose martini or the ping pong, and then think of me when you ask for another. :) Dim sum is pretty good!

    Wow. We did the unlimited Brunch. Priced at $36/person, pricy but well worth the experience. We had our waiter choose for us. Must do as traditional dim sum restaurants are few and far between. Go!

    Really wished they had the jasmine pearl tea when I was there...also wish they had egg tarts which is like a staple at most dim sum places! Try the shrimp and chives dumplings - they are amazing!

    1st dim sum! I had lobster dumplings, basil and clam soup, vegetable sticky rice, spicy basil dumpling, and lychee juice, all delicious. Would totally go again. Get the basil dumplings!

    Dim sum without the carts = genius. Vegetarians should try the vegetable puff and the vegetable spring roll. Make sure to get the sauce platter. Wash it down with the wasabi and amaretto sour!!

    absolutely delicious! Highly recommend: spicy basil dumpling, mandarin & citrus spare ribs (eat these by bucketful), baked ginger cake-the cinnamon ice cream is the best ever!

    It's still new so they run out of a LOT of stuff if you go there in the evening, BUT, the chicken puff, prawn balls, duck rolls + the Ginger and limoncello caipirinha are to die for.

    The pork puffs are a heavenly blend of pastry and honey BBQ pork, the crispy shrimp dumplings are a sight to behold, and the pork shumai is a must!

    AWESOME dim sum bar. Get the chicken puffs, veggie won ton soup (smells amazing), steamed dumplings. All of it is reasonably priced and delicious. Read more

    Happy hour specials are half off; mostly the veggie dim sums. And the ping pong cocktail has basil seeds & is very refreshing! :-)

    This is not your traditional dim sum. The dumplings are interesting flavor mixes and are delicious and beautifully presented.

    Remember to ask for 1/2 ice on your cocktail. While the ice is delicious and crushed, any normal person prefers more alcohol.

    Happy hour dim sum...what could be better? The Chinatown location is small (but great), and there's also a new(ish) location in Dupont.

    Amazing food! Try: hoisin duck rolls, Vietnamese shrimp spring roll, seafood sticky rice, chocolate buns, and any of the flowering teas!

    We LOVED everything we ordered except the chicken dumplings. They were underwhelming. Will definitely be back. Heard they have a great hh

    The chicken puffs are great, the dim sum process is confusing with more than 6 people. Looks like it'd be a great place for after work drinks!

    This place is cool and the food is great. However, don't come here and order the set menu when it's busy and you're in a rush. Sounds obvious but...

    Happy hour is a good deal -- $4 for a selection but I would say that it's tasty you're better off going to other happy hours or do Dim Sum at the traditional times.

    Two things I love in a restaurant: moderate costs and great food. It's the first contemporary dim sum restaurant I've ever visited, and I really like it.

    Food here is really good-if u go on a busy Fri or Sat nite-don't expect good service. Team of servers mixed up order + took 10 min to bring cream for coffee! Been here for brunch-good service then.

    Get the lunch special - only $10 and cheaper than ordering a la carte! Also, wasabi amaretto sour is awesome.

    The chicken puffs aren't authentic dim sum but don't leave the restaurant without ordering them. You won't regret it

    Chicken wonton soup has wonderful aroma and flavor, unusual balance of onions and acidity.

    There's no carts because the food is made to order. I was expecting a hole in the wall joint but it was very classy. Just be prepared to pay around $40 per person.
