This is a favorite restaurant of mine. You really can't go wrong with any of the food. The scallion pancakes are some of the best that you can get in the city. Just as an FYI, it's cash only.

there are two Dim Sum Gardens; please verify you are referencing the right one. If you are, I agree it is disgusting.
