This restaurant is tucked away in Yorktown Square, but is worth the hunt to find it. The decor is very pretty and the chairs soft and comfortable. There is a yum cha menu for lunch (small dishes that can be ordered separately) as well as...More

What a beautiful restaurant with amazing service. I could not fault the whole experience. Four of us had entree and main course and all of our dishes were very good. I tried jelly fish for the first time and loved it. Our waitress was very...More

I got take out yum cha on a Sunday (opens 11am)... Great quality and even better prices. They were even kind enough to throw in some complimentary spring rolls. Highly recommend.

A chef from the both and a chef from the south means yum cha is just odd. Could be a lot better if really embrace the traditional yum cha dumpling tradition and make their own instead of industrial frozen dumplings

Good food. Happy with the entrees. Main meal portion sizes could have been more generous for the prices! Very nice decor. Service was friendly but a bit disjointed, better one waitress per table. Look forward to trying yum cha next time.
