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.

I love this place. It's in the "new China town" in Brooklyn. It's very crowded but with locals, not tourists. The dimsum is authentic and not watered down for picky tourists. It's also CHEAPER than all of those touristy dimsum places in Manhattan's China town....More
