The dim sum blows is not completely terrible, but definitely sub-par. The shrimp white rice cake dish was mediocre. Service was terrible. This place is loud. Got a headache whenever I come to this place. The good things about this dim sum place is even crowded but the wait is less than 30 minutes. This restaurant looks OLD and DIRTY!!!

This is a good place to eat Chinese food. The food is good and the service is good. There is a language issue at times, but there is always someone around to help out and, if there is an issue, it is made right. The orange chicken was great, in fact the best I have eaten, even in Asia!

I personally find the dim sum here to be very noticeably sub par to the dim sum at Seafood Cove #2 (formerly Dragon Palace). I don't know if I just came on the wrong morning or what, but it tasted off and was a bit on the drier side. It wasn't as juicy and flavorful as good dim sum should... More

This place is packed, and there's a long wait list on weekends for dim sum. Worth the wait for excellent dim sum, or get there before 11AM or after 2PM for brunch. Better on weekdays, and for dinner, when dim sum is also available. Entrees can be adjusted to your preferred levels of spiciness. See below for dishes we have... More

We ordered 5 items for lunch Dim Sum : crab claws (2 tiny pieces), 1 pork rolls, 1 shrimp roll covered with seaweed, 1 Sui Mai, 1 hai cau. We were shocked to find out the total was $29.90. We...

Very good basic dim sum. All the ones you would expect and prepared very well. The food was hot and tasty - very nice. I've been to some places that have more selection, but this place does a great job on the basics. It was nice to see sticky rice balls in addition to the sticky rice wrapped in leaves.

This is certainly one of the better Chinese restaurants in Orange County, but every single time that we had gone there in the past, the line was huge and the wait was considerable. We finally found the key. We had attended an afternoon theater event nearby, and so after the performance on a Saturday at about 4:45, we went to... More

My parents announced my coming at this restaurant and we all get together here a minimum of 3 times a year. The food is crazy delicous! I havent had a better... More

We love the dim sum here. Variety of shrimp and other mini delectable. I love the mini baked bao with bbq pork, the sesame rice balls, rice cakes and their honey walnut shrimp is delicious. They have great boba's here too. Love the strawberry flavor. The house lobster dishes are amazing. You pick out the fresh lobster and they cook... More

We were really disappointed by the dim sum at this place. They were mostly served cold and we had to ask our waitress to reheat nearly all of the dishes. The quality of its dim sum has greatly deteriorated since we last visited this place about a year ago. One can now only taste the soy sauce or MSG and... More
