Take control of your orders, other wise your bill can be a bad surprise.I told the waitress not to put more fried dim sum, since I prefer steamed dim sum, she was rude and the invoice did not make sense at all. There are better places to enjoy dim sum.

My lunch companion and I had the usual dim sum fare - egg tarts, char siew bao, glutinous rice, siew mai, har gow (shrimp dumplings), lotus paste filled sesame balls, har cheong fun (shrimp in long thick white noodles), and pork and veg potstickers. Most of the items were warm but not hot, and looked like they had been made... More

Of all the Chinese restaurants in the Miami area, this is the second best for dim-sum -- the first one in Hakassan. I am not sure this is a compliment because all I have tried, except Hakassan, dim-sum are, say, average quality. Service at Tropical is good and all waiters/waitresses speak good English -- compared to poor English you find... More

After getting lost driving to this restaurant, the loss was worth it. I took the precaution of reserving a table calling the place, and thanks to that we got seated inmediately. The menu is impresive, pure and real Chinese food, with pictures describing each specialty. As appetizer, we had salt &pepper calamary. As main course, and although we were only... More

I went there with my parents while visiting. We sat down and immediately the carts started coming, and they don't stop. Tons of variety. Their menu at the front door may help for first timers. Great service. Sometimes it's difficult to get a description of what they're offering. I've been to Dim Sum restaurants in Chinatown in Philly, and this... More

We have been going there for Dim Sum for 10 yrs. now. Just wonderful. We drive From Weston almost every Sunday, very busy but it moves quickly. Sunday is the Busiest day. All the dishes are great, we love orange beef, and Crispy roast duck without their sauce it's too salty. It's amazing. Peking duck is great as well. Just... More

Fantastic selection of entrees and appetizers. This gourmet restaurant (moderately priced) has been family owned and operated for some 30 years. The service is friendly and efficient. The kitchen is in plain view of the dining area separated by a clear glass wall. From traditional favorites like honey chicken and special fried rice to exotic dishes such as spicy fish... More

The Peking duck was very good. The offer a fairly good selection of wines by the bottle. The ambiance was above average for a Chinese food restaurant. The waiter was fair.
