We happened on Fook Lam while looking for a recommended restaurant nearby. What a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed both Dim Sum and a couple of dishes from the menu. Service was excellent and very friendly. One of the most reasonably priced meals we enjoyed in...More

One advantage to this place is it opens at 8 am; by that time it is already full of locals. Dim sum and congee are hot and piping. Waitresses are very polite and helpful. Prices are comparable to other Chinese restaurants in the plaza; parking...More

So, our first choice was actually Legend Seafood right around the corner. That just happened to be first from where we were walking from and it was raining. Checked on seating. At least half-hour wait. Okay. We get our number and the five of us...More

Prices are $3.50+ per steamer depending on size. Offers all standard dim sum menu items. No stand outs in my opinion. Does not have chili oil but does offer hot mustard. Waiters will push carts or carry them out on trays to offer to guests.

We went to Chinatown just to eat at this restaurant since it had great reviews. However, we found it lacking. We arrived by 12:30 p.m. and there were very few items left on their dim sum cart. We ordered about 8 items (half from the...More

Not bad, not great. Their dumpling-style dimsum dishes are very good. Other stuff are too greasy or too fatty for my taste. Wasn't worth it to go out of our way to Chinatown to eat here.
