The view of this place overlooking the. Au was nice. But the dim sum was mediocre nothing special. The XO Daikon cake on stone pot is good and worth it. You order what you like ahead there is limited cart going around. The service is ok but the place is crowded and not seats unless all parties arrives.

I love going out to eat at this restaurant. The individual dishes are are outstanding! Service is fast and the dining room has a great view of the Bay. My favorite dishes are the taro root, the various dumplings, the fried daikon patties and the meatballs.

There are much better dim sum restaurants in San Francisco (and HK, obviously), but not with the panoramic bay views you get here. We tried about 20 dishes and they were a mix of very good to just so-so.

always come in a group, you have to share many dishes without getting otherwise, stuffed. The dim sum wraps are really excellent, and a lot of unusual dishes. The vegetable dishes are a must. The host server was really attentive, water glasses always kept filled. View is terrific of the Bay.

The dim sum was really good and made even better with the great views of the water. Our meal started with some showers outside but when the rain cleared, the sun came out and the view was so clear and bright. My favorite dish was the suckling pig. I usually avoid eating skin but decided to give the crispy skin... More

We came here for a wedding banquet. The view was great. The service was meh. Somehow they managed to pack 10 tables in a small area, so there was not a lot of room for people to move around. One more thing, the food was really expensive. Definitely not worthwhile.

Went for dinner and although we were initially disappointed because we got there at 2.45pm and lunch hour was over; we went back dinner and I must the food was worth the wait! The beef fillet was so tender and I wish I knew that sauce the chef used. The smoked cod was amazing and just melted in your lips!... More

This restaurant serves excellent Chinese Cantonese food and dim sum. The stir-fried beef with bell peppers is a must-try. It is in a beautiful location with breathtaking views of the bay. Only downside is the service - unhelpful and rather rude.

Walked here from our hotel and had a short wait for a table, very courteous and friendly staff. Ordered a few dishes which arrived in good time and were just delicious. Then ordered desserts and they were even better!! Reasonably priced and great views! Would return.

Went to this place for dinner on a Saturday after arriving in Oakland. No problem making last minute reservation. Read the reviews and thought we would give it a go. Parking lot was full when we arrived so we had to park in the adjacent paid parking--no problem. Thought it would be a nice serene place overlooking the water but... More
