We arrived here at around 1130 on a weekday and the place was pretty empty, with maybe 3 other tables taken. By noon, there were some dozen tables, most for the dim sum, which comes around in carts from which you can choose what you want.

Three of us had dim sum and the fourth had the buffet. He enjoyed the buffet and had two plates of it as well as a plate of dessert items.

We had the usual suspects for dim sum, shu mae, har gow, sticky rice and all were good. I would rate this place better than the three stars above, but not quite into the 4 star range.

Service was good, the food was good, and the price was reasonable. But, when you factor in the trip downtown and the $16 to park here, I cannot unconditionally recommend this place unless you are already downtown and in walking distance.

Been coming here for years for Dim Sum and it's always on point. I have never had a bad experience with the food. Love when they do it buffet style, so that I don't have to wait for all the different carts to get what I want.

They get a 4 of 5 because of service. Some of the serving staff are quite rude, but I'll still continue to come back.

Arrived at the restaurant around 12:45pm and the place was mostly empty. Other times I've been here it's been quite loud and busy. The server was prompt with drinks and my party all went to the buffet.

A lot of the items at the buffet were running low but that's to be expected when the restaurant is at the end of the lunch rush.

Items like the salt & pepper chicken, ginger chicken & broccoli were excellent. The ginger beef was quite crunchy but the flavor was good.

The salt & pepper squid, which is normally my favorite, was pretty rubbery.and bland.

Came here for dimsum lunch, disappointed that not all food are served in the carts and you would have to go to stations in the middle of the restaurant to get some items. My son, who loves dimsum, was pretty much disappointed with the food. Even the jello was a let down (which is pretty sad).

Regency has a very large dining room and some private banquet rooms. They have Congi and a noodle station along with the carts. There is also a express dim sum station where you can get your own dim sum without waiting for the carts. Food is good and fresh.
