Dim sum at Hei La Moon was not bad at all. The selection was decent - they had all of basics like pork dumplings, shrimp dumplings, chicken feet, spare ribs, bao, etc. They did have an unusual item: lobster dumplings which I didn't really like....More

My family loves Dim Sum and have had great dining experiences in SF, NYC, Hong Kong and other cities. We were excited to find this restaurant as it looked promising. Unfortunately, we discovered nothing positive. The food was barely edible and boring. The selection of...More

This is a dim sum "palace" like you remember. A large noisy banquet room filled with families picking the most delicious--and authentic--dim sum from a never ending series of carts. And a place where six people can eat until bursting and get change from $100....More

No, they stop at 3pm too. Same as China Pearl. My advice would be to get there before 1pm for the best selections.

There is a garage in the same building , around the corner and up the ramp. It typically gets full on Sundays after 12pm but they do validate at the restaurant. I think it's around $6-7.
