Fortunately we had a reservation. This place seems to be busy every Sunday - and this was Father's Day to boot. Lots of extended families. We were seated without much delay. We had a good variety of tasty, freshly prepared dishes. Reserve ahead!

good dim sum, more on the pricey end but I don't mind spending if food's good, make early reservation to avoid waiting in line, which can be pretty bad, especially weekend, I usually go before 1030am and yet it's usually already half full by then...More
