I was there for brunch and I had dim sum. The dim sums were good and acceptable. But it needed more seasoning in them. As a few of the dim sums very generally quite bland. Textures and quantity was good. Would visit the place again...More

We had a fine meal here as a family. We didn’t want to travel to Richmond as we didn’t have a car with us. Service was very nice. The restaurant was almost empty.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
