We go here regularly for dim sum on sundays and it is the best we have had in Tampa. We learned to love it while traveling Asia and you can do no better locally....awesome!!!

Our family has been going here for years for special occasions. Sundays are usually when we go. This year we realized that portions have gone smaller and prices have gone up. The fried shrimp ball now has rice filler when previously it was all shrimp....More

Food and Service is excellent, they have Dim Sum every day and large selection of Gluten free items. Small bar where you can eat as well. Reasonable selection of wines. On site parking.
