    If you go with the three-course Peking duck dinner, a server will carve the roast duck tableside. Next come the pillowy, white steamed buns in which you stuff slices of this crispy-skinned bird. Read more

    Pile your plates with dumplings, BBQ pork buns and sticky rice. Just when you think you’ll burst, the custard cart will arrive. Don’t miss out. The best part is it’s incredibly affordable! Read more

    The frog legs in hot pepper, chicken fried rice, house fried rice, and pork fried rice all lacked seasoning. Pity because they could have been fabulous dishes.

    Order the live shrimp from the tank. When cooked, they're amazingly sweet and tender.

    I bit into a won-ton thinking it was traditional meat; but I quickly realized it was shrimp that I am allergic.They seemed more preoccupied ringing up another bill than w a customer's well being.

    The vegetable has a great taste and they've added some type of ingredients into the vegetable.

    11:30am-11:45am seems to be the best time to show for dim sum on weekends- early enough to get a good table, but not to early to be the rush when the best food makes the rounds.

    Salt and pepper lobster and salt and pepper calamari were simply delicious.

    We ordered to-go so our experience was food-only. It was alright, run-of-the-mill dim sum and it tasted as it should. Much of it held up after a 20 minute ride home.

    pork belly in preserved vegetables and chicken with hot pepper were new taste experiences. Different but not bad.

    Double lobster tonight was horrible. Overcooked so couldn't even get the meat out of the shell. The waiter didn't care!
