Arrived at 12:30 on a Sunday and there was no wait at all. The food and service were excellent. We will definitely go back for dim sum again.

You have to wait in line. Service is slow and not super friendly. Getting a glass of water can be a challenge. So why do I keep going back? The dim sum is the best in the area. Taste wise, it can't be beat.
