Located right in the heart of Chinatown on Figard Street. Long set of stairs to get upstairs to the restaurant (no elevator). Worth the climb! We have eaten a great deal of dim sum; this was amongst the best we have ever eaten. Very well prepared, interesting twists on dishes we have had many times before. The standards were all done to perfection as well. Not expensive considering all the seafood that is involved. Fast and prompt staff.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel shuttle driver and he was right on. Right when we entered we knew the meal was going to be wonderful. So many choices almost overwhelming. You can tell many local Chinese residents enjoy this restaurant as well. Portions are somewhat large especially the rice. Prices are reasonable and staff is attentive.

Four of us met for a late lunch (1:00pm). The dim sum was advertised as continuing until at least two pm. I thought the selections were limited and service on the very slow side. Nothing special in any of the offerings and the best was probably the shrimp ball. Sticky rice, although not my favourite dish,was enjoyed by the others. Not really enough of an experience to bring me back. And we were both quite thirsty immediately after lunch making us speculate that there must have been msg in the food.

Our tour bus guide recommended this restaurant for lunch. It was delicious! They were very busy as we showed up at lunch time. Only problem was the stairs from entrance to upstairs for dining room, no elevator and we had a senior with us who had a very difficult time with the stairs--several. But once seated, they came around with Dim Sum carts and offered and explained what they contained. We also ordered the meal combination for 2 even though there were 4 of us, figuring we would fill in with the dim sum. Glad we only ordered for 2, we had plenty for all of us and left some there. Highly recommend this restaurant and will be back again next time in Victoria.
