This place is huge, probably 100 tables. Great for large family dinners or parties. The service was excellent and the dishes we had were great - lemon chicken, BBQ fried rice, won ton soup. Very large portions - a serving of lemon chicken would easily serve 2-3 adults. We had so much we had to pack it up and take... More

Great selection of Dim Sum, many choice, great taste, friendly service and reasonable price for choice and selection. There are some dim sum that never seen only in Hong Kong. Weekend very busy, so go early. Sometime difficult finding parking on street close by.

Went here for dimsum and was impressed with the choices. They had standard dimsum items and some seafood dishes I'd never seen before. It's a huge restaurant with a great view of the marina. Bathrooms were clean and free parking.

Decided to try this restaurant as I came across many reviews and recommendations. It's a local HK style dim sum restaurant with average dim sum. Had better at Dragon Beaux.

This restaurant serves delicious traditional deem sum and other dishes. There's a large variety to choose from, which is what deem sum means, "choose what your heart desires". My family has been coming here for years, it's owned by sisters who always remember us so it's like coming home. Nice atmosphere, quick & friendly service.

Standard Asian fare. We stick w/broccoli beef, black bean chicken and any of the appetizers. Probably one of the better -of many- Asian spots on the isle.

Get there early. Place opens at 10 AM. By 10:30 AM it's long waiting lines. Carts zoom by with delicious delicacies of dim sum. The servers are friendly. Mildred, one of the hostesses, is very pleasant and very customer service oriented. If you want a dim sum item that hasn't made it's way to your table, you can ask the... More
