We have been going there for Dim Sum for 10 yrs. now. Just wonderful. We drive From Weston almost every Sunday, very busy but it moves quickly. Sunday is the Busiest day. All the dishes are great, we love orange beef, and Crispy roast duck without their sauce it's too salty. It's amazing. Peking duck is great as well. Just... More

Fantastic selection of entrees and appetizers. This gourmet restaurant (moderately priced) has been family owned and operated for some 30 years. The service is friendly and efficient. The kitchen is in plain view of the dining area separated by a clear glass wall. From traditional favorites like honey chicken and special fried rice to exotic dishes such as spicy fish... More

The Peking duck was very good. The offer a fairly good selection of wines by the bottle. The ambiance was above average for a Chinese food restaurant. The waiter was fair.

It's pretty good in general. Some dishes were beyond my expectation, some were just average. They don't have some of my favorite dim sum dishes. But it's alright. Oh, I think they're a little pricier than other dim sum places I have been to. $54 for 2 ppl before tip.

The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere, food tastes great (trust me I'm really picky with chinese food) place and food presentation was spectacular! not your typical Chinese place. The restaurant overall is very clean and pleasant, I thought prices were reasonable for the quality. We had dumplings, fried rice, steak noodles, and pecking duck which were all super good.

Went for the first time. Long ride, but worth it. Outstanding? Not really. But very, very good, considering good Chinese restaurants are becoming so rare. Service was fine if not gracious, all food was hot and well prepared. Every reason to go if you are looking for a Chinese dinner, and no reason not to.

I liked so much tropical Chinese restaurant that I drove the 55 miles from where I live in boca raton just to eat the best dim sum and Peking duck in Florida. My last two trips have been a deception though. I don't know if they have changed the chef or is on vacation but the quality of the dim... More

This restaurant is well known for its dim sum. Best that I know of in Miam. And the cost of the meal is always surprisingly low. Even a friend of mine who owns a 5-star hotel was impressed by the fare and the price! I always go once in Miami. Highly recommend.My most recent visit was in September 2016.
