I'd have to say this is one of my favorite dim sum places in Calgary. The dim sum is ordered from the checklist sheet vs being pushed around the carts, which is good if you know what you want, because it comes out piping hot,...More

My wife and I love the food here and go regularly. The Ginger Beef is amazing. Everything we have tried has been great. Ambiance of the place leaves something to be desired, but the food is great. Go eat some food there.
