This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel clerk and the airport shuttle driver. The food was tasty and the serving size was ample.

The restaurant adds additional tables to accommodate more people. Quality of food suffered in addition to the uncomfortable sitting arrangement. Will avoid in the future.

Everything we had was hot and freshly made. The dim sum was very good, hot, large pieces, good quality and fresh. If you noticed lunch and dinner it's pretty much all foreign born Chinese eating there, which means it must be good... A definite place great for lunch and dinner.

A sister of coworker who lives here recommended this as a must stop place to dine when in the area. Supposedly less pretentious and the dim sums were just as good as Koi Palace. The Kitchen Restaurant had three plaques on display showing their Michelin Star awards in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Arrived right when the restaurant opened on a... More

The food is authentic and tastes good. The menu offers variety to please everyone. I only tried dinner here, but heard that it is also popular for Dimsum at lunch time and the hot tea served for Dimsum is free. That is a pretty good deal if you go Dimsum as a group. The restaurant is always busy. The good... More

Came here for dim sum on a weekday. Based on reading reviews, I was expecting a long wait but in fact, they were able to seat us immediately. We ordered the staples (shrimp dumplings, shrimp rice noodles, steamed meat dumplings, sesame balls) as well as a bunch of other new things like roast duck wrapped in rice noodle. Their menu...

Dim Sum on a Sunday morning is a great way to start a Sunday! Doing it at The Kitchen is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. After a 30 min wait, we were promptly seated and servers with their various Dim Sum offerings started appearing. Everything was outstanding. We ate way too much - and yet the bill came to 40$ with...

We've been to the Kitchen a number of times for dim sum and dinner. The food is always very good, right up there with Koi Palace. Parking the the area can be tough to find sometimes, but generally not a problem during weekday evenings. The service is pretty typical for a Dim Sum place. It's generally pretty quick and efficient.... More

The Kitchen was recommended by the hotel receptionist across the street. The menu was great and the food was truly outstanding however I felt the service for non asians was definitely different (less then ideal) than the service for the Asian patrons. The food made up for the less than desirable service.
