I ate here on a Friday for lunch with three other people. Three of us had dim sum plates; Sesame Balls, sui mai, shrimp rice roll, shrimp dumplings. One had a Thai dish and rice. We all liked the food very much, everyone took leftovers home. I thought my reheated sesame balls tasted better that evening. Our service was prompt... More

Seven of us went to White Swans on a Saturday night at about 6:30 PM. The place was only moderately full, but we had a long wait before anyone even asked us for our order; long enough, in fact that one of our party was able to leave, cross the street and buy a six -pack of beer for the... More

When I first started coming here, the staff were attentive and things were served in a timely manner. The food is great and the dim sum is amazing. The last few times I have been there, the services has not been amazing. If you are not waiting for service, you are waiting for food. If you are not waiting for... More

Chinese, Thai, Korean - and not only the old favorites. Many Asians eating there. Everything we had was cooked properly and tasted great. The spicy food was spicy and the other dishes were not. Large portions, not too greasy. Service fair. Decor utilitarian. They have sesame balls!

I went with family and friends to this place, I had never been there before. Familiar menu items so I ordered a la carte and got some of my favorites. I chose to get one unfamiliar food, the Chicken Teriyaki burger done in a fold-over like soft sandwich, it was really good, as were all the other choices, we each... More

The food here is always good, but we decided to stop going, as the food usually takes 45 -60 minutes to arrive, even when it's not very busy. They seem to prepare and bring out one dish at a time

I've been to White Swan at least three times. They have the traditional dim sum offerings and while not a huge menu, you can get them at any time which is a bonus. I've had their assorted dumplings, buns and rice rolls. The bubble teas are a treat. Service is always fast and friendly too. My only negative would be... More
