I've been to many dimsum places since I was a kid. The food here is so so, nothing very tasty to my personal taste. But to others, it might be good enough. The serving size of some dishes (shrimp dumpling for example) is a bit small, even to Asian standard. The service is ok, the lady is nice enough.

This is a very nice, family run, local, and authentic Chinese & Asian restaurant. The assortment of dimsum was exquisite and there are many small menu items to try. We enjoyed the dumplings as well as the different noodles offered. The service is very good, humble, and hard-working along with a nice atmosphere to enjoy a meal.

The food was AMAZING! Everything I got was so good. Chicken spring rolls (tasted like they had yellow curry in them), steamed beef onion dumplings in red chilli sauce, sweet creamy salt egg sesame balls and fried crispy shrimp balls were all super good. The egg balls tasted like they were filled with warm vanilla pudding. I definitely recommend all of those and I will be going back for sure.

Amazing, attentive, and friendly service! Food was also very delicious. Loved the braised pork, dumplings in chili sauce, crispy pot sticker, and salt and pepper fish.

Best dim sum in the RTP. This place is reasonably priced and is more about quality over quantity! Smaller plate size than I’m used to for dim sum but they are packed with flavor! Best tasting shrimp dumplings I’ve had. The teas is also nicer with different levels of complexity. There is better don tot at other restaurants but this place is awesome! It takes a little bit to get your food and it’s not Hong Kong style but the servers are super attentive! I would come back more if I lived here!

Coming from a state with the best dim sum in the country I really wanted to find a good place here. We were incredibly nervous going here but it actually turned out pretty good. Most of the items we ordered were really yummy. The only thing we noticed is that the portions are quite small but other than that the food is a great choice for dim sum in the area. A little wait was okay and the place is super cute. We will be going back:)

Solid dim sum, but service was a bit spotty. I’m hearing what some of the other posters said below in not being allowed to order the second round, but that was not the case for us. We came on a Saturday, and although it was very busy when we arrived, by the time we left, it really settled down. We did have to flag somebody down for a second order, and although they did not tell us “no”, they certainly were not smiling about it. I’ve had dim sum in lots of places, having lived in San Francisco and in Boston for many years, and overall this is good, but it did not feel like it was fabulous. Sometimes, in other places, the dim sum arrives hot and steamy, and this did not seem to be the case here. They also did not have as many elements on the menu as other places. Although their menu looked extensive, there were still some things that I have ordered in past places that I did not see. Also, on the weekend, I usually expect a cart coming around, and that did not seem to happen, although they did have carts that they brought when your food arrived, so why not have them circulating? They have the little checkbox menus in place, so they could circulate the carts, and then just check off what you got easily. All that said, we will certainly come again. It was quick, and the variety was good, and overall things were tasty. I’m also not expecting Chinatown quality dim sum in places outside of large cities that don’t have a Chinatown.

A wonderful cozy enviroment with delicious savory and sweet dumplings all perfectly prepared. The staff is helpful,friendly and attentive. They have a wonderful method for ordering dim sum and the food comes out hot and quick. I would highly reccomend this restaurant and can't wait to visit again.
