    Has the best and most elegant Dim Sum available. Do not leave without trying the soup dumplings and the BBQ pork buns. Visit the to-go counter for takeaway service.

    I just read an assessment of the pushy dim sum waiters. Dim sum waiters are suppose to walk around table to table asking you if you want the food they have. That's how ALL dim sum restaurants are.

    Superbly tasty (and expensive!) dim sum, but hits the spot when you don't feel like walking to Chinatown on your lunch break.

    Be wary of the first 'signature' dumplings. $13 off the bat. There are better less expensive dumplings. Check the menu and get what appeals to you. No rush. They'll be back around eight more times...

    Fresh, well made, and tailored to the western palate -- dim sum your (American) grandma will like. If you want cheap and greasy (or the california cuisine influence bothers you), go to Chinatown.

    Best Dim Sum I've ever had. But $120 for 3 people to really enjoy a lunch...doubt I'll be back. Just as good places for 1/4 of the price.

    Service can be spotty in terms of getting the attention of the dim sum carts when out in the patio. Thankfully the wait staff are very attentive and can grab dishes for you upon request!

    If you want the Goldfish Dumpling, you need to go to Rincon Center. Also, you can order dimsum by the piece. So you can get a half order of Egg Custards.
