    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    Great Dim Dum! Order the pork buns and end with the ginger cake and cinnamon ice cream. Tasty!

    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!

    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!!

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Happy Hour M - F, 4-7pm $5 Cocktails & $3 dim sum. A must have experience.

    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...

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    It's my first time here. The waiter isn't much help with first timers. No suggestions on how to handle the food. And they bring it out one at a time. It's a really cool space but slow on service.

    Food is great but be careful with your Check. They like to over charge. My bill was $58 and my friend and I split. One check was $48 the other was $29.

    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.

    Great service, great decor, but I feel like this is a white person's idea of dim sum... The food is just ok, really not great. But it looks like this is the only dim sum place around here so...
