“Disgusting!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We had a business dinner here that involved a set menu.
None of the food was dim sum, so maybe coming by yourself will give you a very different experience?
The restaurant is a gigantic hall on the second floor. On the day we were there, there were three sections: a wedding (they had karaoke to enterain the entire restaurant and were pretty bad singers), a "general" section and our section.
The food was absolutely disgusting; the common denominator seemed to be "cheap", and we were never told what any of the courses were. One course was plain noodles, one course was a chopped-up cooked duck (head on the plate; bone splinters everywhere), one course was some of the slimiest mushrooms I have ever seen.

“Dim Sum by carts”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Visiting from CA, where dimsum by cart is very plentiful. It was nice to find this place. Food was good, variety nice, large dining hall, really felt like how things use to be, HK Cantonese style. Not too fancy, modern, simple and the way things should to be. Glad this place is around and will be back when in NY. Seems like there are fewer dimsum places and more modern Mandarin style
bakeries, eateries.

“It IS very Chinese, but that's about it”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We went there as many travel guides said they have the greatest dumplings in NYC. Well, I hope not! We tried plenty varieties, dim sum of all denominations, and they didn't come close to the best --anywhere else we've had them, at all. Decent, but that's about it. It is a true Chinese restaurant, in setup, atmosphere, humougous room, that is true. Service isn't bad, but it's not really good either. Not what's it's cracked up to be in all the travel guides I've seen, but ... OK I guess.
