Wide selection of classic dim sum on carts, backed by a solid Cantonese menu. Quality varied between superb and ho-hum, but very everything was palatable. Plenty of staff keeping the large dining hall running, but staff were seen frequently shouting at guests rudely.

Located on second floor (handicap accessible) with windows facing 8th as well as 55th Street this behemoth keeps up with the other three massive sprawling ground floor dim sum restaurants in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The food is great. The menu is pretty much the same...More
