I really wanted some fresh dumplings and tried another restaurant before, but theirs were frozen....So came here, where they had great dumplings and a large variety of choices :) Will definitely come back.

We were excited to try this place after reading about it on Tripadvisor, but left disappointed. The food did not taste of much, the service, decor and atmosphere was poor.

Went there with my family, the food was really good, very authentic with large variety of dim-sum choices, we choose siu mai and friend wonton, the Siu Mai was very good, the fried wonton were good but way too greasy... the main dishes compensated for the oily aftertaste of the fried Wonton. The flavors were complementing, with a strong wok taste ( just like back in Asia).

In summary, the place is great and I would recommend to anyone who is longing for a taste of Asia.

We came here especially for the dim sum and we weren't disappointed. There is a huge variety of options and everything is served at the described portions.
We also tried noodles and chicken with rice mains which were also very good portions.
I cannot say I was over excited about the taste, but I liked that I could try so many things.

The family that run this restaurant is from Guangzhou (Canton) in China, and they have more than 30 different dim sum-courses on the menu.

In China, dim sum (dumplings) are eaten for breakfast and lunch, but this restaurants serves it in the evening too.

Unlike most Chinese restaurants, that serve semi-processed food, here they actually make everything from scratch. And are they experts! The food is really good, even prepared with good places in Southern China.

The dim sums come in baskets of two - four pieces. Three baskets should make a full dinner for a woman, maybe four for a man. Add dessert and wine, and you'll be 500-600 NOK poorer per person than when you went in.

The neighbourhood is not that nice (although vibrant), and the restaurant itself a tad worn, so the very good food that appears on your table, usually served by nice and social staff, is almost a miracle.
