Beautiful large space with elegant decor. I like the variety of different rooms, each with its own ambiance. The food was great. The edamame dumplings melt in your mouth, the general tsos chiken dumplings are delicious with a steaming sauce oozing out of them. Also had the rock shrimp which was one of the best rock shrimp dishes ive tasted. Lobster egg rolls were great and the tuna tar tar wass ok (nothing spectacular). As for the entree I had the Kung Pao Monkfish. It was good but really reminded me of sesame chiken from a fast food chineese place. Next time I think I would just go crazy with the Dim Sum. The service is what really turned me off, very strict. It seemed that every request we had was an issue. We had a hard time being seated beacause 2 out of 10 ppl havnt arrived yet. The waiter INSISTED that we get drinks at the table when someone wanted to go to the bar. When we wanted to order apps while waiting for the rest of the party he once again HIGHLY recommended we order apps and entrees together. Even when one of the girls asked to have one of her apps made less spicy it was an issue. Overall...I would go back if in the area but wouldnt make a night or an occasion out of it.
