Came here on a Saturday night for a party of 4 and luckily we arrived here early because it appears they don't have a lot of small tables for small groups. I was told they only take reservations for parties of 6 or more. We ordered a soup and 4 entrees and each of them were pretty good especially the pumpkin and shrimp dish. Service was poor. The waiters don't smile when they greet you and they (the young lady at the front desk in the black suit) try to hurry you out so that they can turn the table over. If it wasn't for the food, I wouldn't be back here again.

We ordered 5 dishes of Chinese cuisine, 2 of them taste really bad especially the fired rice.
I didn't ask for redo or a refund, simply informed the waiter when checkout. The fried rice was too soft and no taste at all.
The cashier lady(black suit dressed) rudely throw the bill on the table without any eye contact and a basic word of "thank you". Will never never come again!

Glancing over the reviews here, it seems people are upset that they had to wait for a table when they arrived at the peak of "rush hour" service, and for those complaining about the service obviously don't know how to dine at a Dim Sum restaurant.

Dim Sum is all about fast and efficient, so that the dishes get into your mouth while they are hot and fresh. My wife and I are veterans (Chicago Chinatown is a regular destination at home for us) and we checked the dishes we wanted on the menu slip, and accepted a few other dishes that were brought around the room too. Our server was quick to take our order and bring tea and water, and even when we said "no" to the passed dishes, we smiled and the staff smiled back.

Our food was excellent quality, fresh and savory, with the fried foods not being greasy at all. We ordered about 7-8 plates and were quite full for a total tab of about $35-40.

Our group of friends had our new years eve dinner at this restaurant last night and ordered the banquet menu. The soup, appetizer mix plate including jelly fish, bbq pork, roast pork, etc., walnut shrimp, Beijing duck with steam buns, Peking pork chops, pea sprout in garlic, and roast chicken were very average. The garlic geoduck clam with vermicelli noodles in large clam shells was outright terrible. The vermicelli noodle had a musty, doughy taste and the clam meat was bland. The best dish of the evening was the dessert, green bean sweet soup. I noticed that a few reviewers commented on poor service but we actually received pretty good service. I really cannot recommend the food as there are quite a few Chinese restaurants in Millbrae nearby that serve much better Cantonese cuisine.
