This is the old school HK dim sum reals deals, apparently. Cool vibe: loud and lively communal tables and crowd scavengery around the cart. The tea was good; the dim sum was merely average to my Shanghainese aculturated tongue. Nevertheless, a nice experience worth your...More

Hi Monique, I only had lunch once there, and they did not seem to take reservations. They will let you share a table with others if there are empty seats.
