One of my acquaintances recommended this restaurant and took me there to have a lunch. The shop owner was kind and the dishes were served steaming hot. It tasted good and the prices were reasonable. It's not an elegant and luxurious restaurant, but the friendly...More

Clearly the best in town. Consistently. I've had dim sum, dinner parties with wine & just a few friends. Dim sum made to order. Toi shan crab modeled after iconic dish in NY. Kumu fish (on special order), walnut shrimp, the usual favorities all excellent.
