The food was excellent. The service was less than friendly, but I did not care. The dumplings look mediocre, but NO WAY -- the dumplings are AMAZING -- must have!!

The waiting line to get in tells the story. It's worth the wait! We were lucky to get a table for 4 upstairs so we're not sitting by the door or by the long lines to get in. The soup dumplings have a technique to eating them and they were amazing. So was general Tsos shrimp and the beef noodles... More

We (2 adults and a child) visited last Saturday evening about 6pm and there was a line in the restaurant. We waited for more than 1/2 hours to get our table. Luckily it didn't take too long before we could order. The food was good, especially the soup dumplings. We tried to go back the next afternoon but since the... More

I was in a group of six people. We waited in line for a table, but we ended up jumping ahead of half the line because a table for six opened up quickly. We were seated in the back room. You need to walk through a narrow hallway, passing the pick up window for the servers and the two rest... More

The food was great. As a party of 3 we had the Buddha delight vegetables with garlic sauce, several different dumpling samplers such as shrimps and pork. Noodles and the works. All of the food was great and the place looked clean. My mixed feelings comes from seeing a cook eating while handling food. The cook was in the kitchen,... More

The real deal here! Dumplings were super, end of story. Plenty of other options too, but I was all about the dim sum and was delighted. Could eat there all week and be happy. Soup dumplings especially 5-stars. Cant wait to return.

The restaurant was very crowded, but they managed to fit our party of ten. The food was great. Service was quick and we had a variety of dumplings and a couple of soups.

Pros: - Modern decor sets the tone for a nice meal - The food keep that tone going. We had a good variety of dishes between the four of us, including appetizers, and every single one was excellent. I had the General Tso's Chicken over Lo Mein and man were those noodles perfect. My wife loved her Wonton Soup, our... More
