We have eaten at this place on a fairly regular basis. The food is authentic and very well prepared. The price is a bit on the higher end for the regular menu items but not to bad. Staff os very friendly. We always end up with leftovers. They have Dim Sum ala cart on Sundays but be prepared for a... More

I have not had the opportunity to eat at a legitimate Chinese Dim Sum restaurant since Clement Street in San Francisco 30 years ago. Was skeptical about this one in North Carolina, of all places, until we arrived and noticed that most of the diners were Asian (Chinese)! That is a very good sign, obviously. We had several of the...

We went for the dim sum. I have to say up front that we're not dim sum aficionados ... we've only had them a couple times before. We ordered 5 different kinds, and they all had some appeal. The shrimp crep were our least favorite because the steamed dough is kinda "slippery", but I think it's supposed to be like... More

Don't let the outside and location put you off. If you go on the weekend they pass around the traditional dim sum cart but during the week you can order the same things off the menu. Plus all the regular dishes are amazing especially the shrimp dishes. I saw someone order a roasted duck and I cannot wait to try... More

We were here yesterday, and had a seat close to the kitchen door; this is the place to be, as one has first choice own all the carts. We got there about 15 minutes after it opened and it was already packed. This is the place to be for a Sunday brunch. These selections were amazing. Fresh vegetables, the Chinese... More

The food is good, but the price is too outrageous... Order for 1 plate of dim sum costs the entire lunch menu combo in any other Chinese restaurant. Cannot afford food like that..

Previous dim sum experiences back in Chcago, was very similar, I asked for hoi sin sauce, which was brought out... More

Last weekend we decided to eat here after church. No lines this time. Less people than usual. We got our usual ribs, siomai, and duck. We had to ask the waitress to heat up our vegetables and duck because it was cold and bland. We asked for extra sauce to liven it up. Even the tea tastes like watered down.... More

We went early on a Saturday. Service was exceptional as there were few people in the restaurant when we arrived. A lot more by the time we left, though. Unfortunately, all the food had been sitting on the carts for a long time, preparing for the rush. Some dishes were cold, others very over cooked. Not one dish out of... More
