Small restaurant compared to other dimsum places in Monterey Park so make sure you get there early or else be prepared to wait. You order using a menu not by carts. Prices are a bit more compared to other dimsum places I've been to but quality is also better.

Excellent choice for Dim Sum in the San Gabriel Valley. It's an orderly affair (as you order from a menu) rather than by carts passing by. But it still has a very authentic feel. The dim sum is excellent, with a good variety.

Stick to the traditional dim sum dishes. They are all delicious. We tried the chef specials those were just average.

This is one of the best Dim Sum places there is. They have quite a few different tasty plates that you do not see at other Dim Sum places. So if you are tired of the same Dim Sum plates over and over again, I would recommend you go and try this place. The plates are a little more expensive... More

Their portions are huge compared to other dim sum places. Prices are fair and most of their food are pretty good. Parking can be tough when busy. Annoying suggested tip amounts on the receipt that are calculated based on after tax total. Fewer and fewer restaurants are doing this in my experience, this place needs to stop doing this as...

We vow not to go back to this restaurant. First, over an hour wait to be seated. Once seated, service is chaotic and generally rude. Then, we found a screw in our friend's plate! We told the Manager and he brushed it off by explaining it must have fallen off the dim sum tray. Didn't offer to change the plate,... More

We have dinner here about once a month and it never disappoints. Dragon eggplant stuffed with shrimp is a favorite, along with whole steamed fish, fried rice with egg whites and dried scallop, steamed minced pork, braised egg tofu, fish maw soup. Bonus lobster if you order at least eight dishes so bring friends.

Not your typical dim sum place with the heated push carts - its order your dim sum from a menu and ticket. My favorites: shrimp har gow, congee, shu mai, baked bbq buns, sticky tice with otus leaf, bean curd with pork. YUM!

I have craved dim sum for many months. Finally, I went with my friend. It was so good. The food was delicious and it came out very fast. Portions was reasonable and the price was very fair. Can't wait to come back again. I liked the shrimp dumplings the best.
