Solid dim sum fare, good atmosphere on a Saturday morning, friendly staff. There were 16 of us and ordering went smoothly. The food did take a little while to come out but that is expected for so many people. Eggplant and rice noodles (cheung fun) were my favorites. Overall we had a great time.

It has authentic taste, but is below-average dim sum quality (though this is the only dim sum I have had at Raleigh-Durham). Food came out quick. Wanted to order more dim sum dishes but waitress said NO because they are too busy. Had MUCH better dim sum elsewhere unfortunately. Not being able to take a second order I found ridiculous. To order dim sum, they provide a piece of paper with the dishes listed and you need to mark how many of each you want. When your dishes are ready, they bring them to you. They did not roll the dim sum kart around even though this was a sunday lunch.

We came in 30 minutes before closing time. The waitress who served us was prompt and friendly. We ordered about 13 dishes of food and they were all very tasty. We were there for a little over an hour and appreciated that they still chose to serve us. Will definitely be back!

This place was absolutely delicious. I loved that we were able to get a bunch of different tastes for an affordable price! Everything we had came out quickly and was so so yummy. I wish we lived closer so that I could come again!!

This restaurant is amazing! It's a cute little place that's family-owned and the food is out of this world! Service is fantastic and the people are so nice! I've been back now twice in a week! If you've never tried dim sum, you owe it to yourself to try the best here!

This is my favorite dim sum restaurant in the triangle area! My friends and I go regularly and enjoy an assortment of dim sum and eat it family style. This time we were able to dine in and we had a wonderful time! The service was quick considering we ordered a lot of food. The food never disappoints and even some pickier eaters I know were able to find dishes they enjoyed. They have vegetarian options as well!

We went here on a weekday night and were the only guests in the place. We ordered more than $100 of assorted dim sum and all was delicious. The bar area of the restaurant was cluttered and this is not an upscale place. It appeared to be a family run restaurant with 2 employees. However our experience was enjoyable and we plan to return again. The young female waitress was very nice and sociable with us. The dim sum was prepared fresh and delivered to the table dish by dish as it was ready rather than all at once which was great! Our favorite items were the pan fried and steamed dumplings, sticky rice dumplings, steamed buns, and steamed Chinese broccoli. If you choose to eat here just be patient and understand that they might be short staffed and are doing the best that they humanly can given the circumstance. If you can not be patient then order online and pick up for take out.

We dine in today Monday, 6/20/22 around 2:30/3. This was my first time having a Dim sum and not my last time. The service was good. We were acknowledged immediately when we walked in. I enjoyed the selections. The Pork Green chive was my favorite. It was bursting with flavor in every bite. The steamed pork buns were delicious. The pain-fried turnip cake is a great flavor much like a potato substitute, I also enjoyed it. I also had the following (below) but I will skip these the next time. Crab cheese wonton was okay, but I tasted more cream cheese than anything. Crispy sticky rice dumplings and chicken spring rolls were a good flavor but not much excitement there. I will be back again soon to try the vegetables.

Lots of good reviews perhaps not many in the area? The dim sum dishes that I got are average at best. The tea is per person as usual, but one tea bag for two people? so 1/2 tea bag if only for one? Dim Sum is ordered as you go style with family gathering. This place only allowed you to order once, if you want more, they will say "no, you can't".....Imagine if you go to a bar, you have to order all your drinks at once for the whole night.

Excellent variety of dishes and all were great quality. I was able to try things I had never had before. I particularly enjoyed the pork dumpling, sweet egg sesame balls, and other dumplings. No wait, good service, and very reasonable prices. I will be returning for sure.

Love their dim sum! Great customer service! 👆above three years ago. Today 12/12/2021 They do have good dim sum but If you have to wait for 1 hour take out. That means they need to hire more people. It seems the dining in people are waiting quit long too.

Decided to eat her even though it was mixed reviews. We had a great time. The food was great and we enjoyed everything. My favorite was the shrimp noodle crepe, followed closely by the spring onion pancake. We got the fried rice as well, and it was by far some of the best I’ve had. It was really crowded when we got here and you could tell the two ladies were rushing around to make sure that everyone was served in a timely manner. I didn’t experience any rudeness from the servers that was stated in other reviews, the two ladies were very polite and kind. I would definitely recommend and come back.

This place is amazing! Plan to make a reservation for larger parties. There were 6 of us and we took some friends from out of town here. The staff was so kind and the food and tea were delicious! Our guests wanted to go back the next day. Will definitely be coming here again!
