A bit to busy, but if don't mind to wait even with reservation you get a good deal for what you pay. Lots of seafood items on the menu. Large portions and the quality is quite good.

The size of the portions will knock you over, so don't order too many dishes, but it doesn't taste any better than the average dim sum. Not much wait at 9:15am on a Monday, but there was a line by 10am. Service is fine, if...More
