There is a wide variety of different kinds of dim sum, in which all taste delicious. Personal favourite is the shrimp rice roll. The egg tarts are also amazing. I recommend if you want to enjoy some dim sum in Calgary. Also the prices are very reasonable. And the service is quite fast as well.

There isn't much left in this City. This is the best place for dim sum and you will find variety in it. Also they have other foods on the menu for lunch or dinner. The service is quick in a traditional style you have your host, cashier, waitresses and servers. You are never left long with dirty dishes. I really recommend this place. It's located on the 2nd floor but they do have elevator for wheel chair. Parking on the side and the back.

Ordered young pigeon, pork soup with lotus root and carrots, lobsters in ginger and green onion sauce with vermicelli, fish hot pot, stir fried vegetable, deep fried tofu with fungus and green beans, braised duck with taro root, deep fried pork ribs in dried mandarin skin sauce, fresh lily stir fried with green bean and fungus and mango. Dessert was orange and red bean sweet soup.
Young pigeon looked good but not sure if they taste good since I don’t eat pigeon at all. Pork soup with lotus root and carrots came with a lot of vegetable but as usual, the kitchen put either too much salt or MSG in. Lobsters in ginger and green onion sauce taste good and fresh but it was quite dry which made the vermicelli stick together. Fish hot pot was good. Fish was fresh but if the kitchen could add less salt or soya sauce, that would be even better. All stir fried vegetables were fresh and good. Pork ribs were deep fried right, not too greasy or not too dry. Friends said the duck taste good and the taro root soaked with all sauces (I didn’t eat this dish since I only eat baked ducks).
Red bean sweet soup was too thick. Orange was ok (not sour) at this season.
Food overall was good portion but I found all were a bit salty. I believe other people didn’t think food was a bit salty. It’s just myself that I don’t like/make heavy seasoned food.
Service is always bad unless you know the restaurant people. Since my friends know them, so service wasn't bad this time.

The service is good and the carts have a good assortment of dumplings, rice rolls, rice soup, pork buns etc. Food is good and authentic.
