After 10+ visits it's still the best Dim Sum in Halifax, and among the best we've ever had in Ottawa and Toronto. Our favourites are the Taro Wrap, Flaky BBQ, and Sticky Rice but get there early (Sat & Sun only) because they're the first...More

Been going to this spot since it opened (and then even where owners were previously). Excellent food, best Dim Sum in Halifax/Metro. Service is lacking - but I keep going back. LOL Food it that good!

This is the best we've found living here over 10 years. We go almost monthly. The dumplings are really great. Love the lemon chicken and the spicy dishes and noodle options are great too. We don't order the "American-style" items, so can't recommend those. But...More

Unlike most people I do not order the chicken ball combo. I got an egg roll which was meat paste and very tasty, 12 pork dumplings which were among the best I have ever had in Halifax, and a Fried Noodle in Black Bean Sauce....More
