The good: congee, steamed bbq pork bao, black bean spareribs. Okay: chow fun, fried buns. Poor: calamari, fried sticky rice. Good atmosphere; nice decor. I am comparing quality vs restaurants in Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The restaurant English name remained but the Chinese name has since changed after the change in owners two years back. Initially the dim sum was bad but has since stabilized. Some items are quite good like the rice crepes while others are mediocre to bad....More

Told 30 min wait. Waited 45 minutes and then inquired. I was told another 40 minutes. Very discourteous. We wouldn't have waited if they were honest.

We really enjoyed this place! I felt a little under dressed in shorts and a t shirt although most patrons were dressed this way....just that the atmosphere here seems a little more upscale. We were a party of three and ordered the dim sum. Our...More

A nice restaurant for classic Cantonese food. Located on a busy street in Chinatown. Many people are waiting during peak time.

Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
