As always the food was excellent, service was so so. We highly recommend the fried oysters. The oysters are big and very juicy.

Recommended by two different friends, we looked forward to some great dim sum. Most dishes were only average, one had hair and there was a bug in our water. Place was only 1/2 full, and it's not very big, so that should have been a...More
