In the South Bay Area of Los Angeles, this is the place for dim sum and you need to be here early on weekends or the wait can be excruciating. They also serve capable Cantonese style cuisine both for lunch and dinner, including banquet dinners...More

The flavors we're we'll put together, authentic and the staff was hospitible. Getting dessert (egg custard tarts) though we're a challenge. The cart flew by us twice and before we could ask it was gone without a glance our way

Typical chinese restaurant atmosphere, with very good food, visited by locals a bit crowded. Service was good, except for the bar which was well stocked but poor service. Under staffed for the evening that we were there. Suggest reservations especially on weekends.

We have eaten here 3 times: dim sum, Wedding Banguet, dinner. The food was excellent each time. The seafood is the best, especially whole fish. Not a fancy place but the food is great if you like cuisine from southern China.

This place is located in Gardena. This food is good authentic Chinese food. I suggest you try the Peking duck and the fish maw soup. This place is good for big family and friends. The price is affordable and the serving is generous.
