It's a go-to restaurant for me for several reasons: friendly, prompt service, EXCELLENT food served quickly, and piping hot. Washrooms almost pathologically CLEAN. What's not to like?

Here you can have dim sum, hot pot or buffet. The restaurant is huge and busy but service is attentive. The quality of food is top notch. I love visiting the Koi fish on the way in. Always leave feeling very satisfied.
