Dim Sum King in Sunnyvale quite impressive

Before anyone attacks me for calling a take-out place impressive, just keep in mind my review takes the location and price into consideration. In short, you get a pretty wide variety of relatively large-size dim sum (including stuff like egg tarts, lotus leaf wrapped sticky rice, chicken feet, pan-fried turnip cake) at very low prices. Much better than the dim sum at large Chinese grocery chains like Ranch 99. I didn't speak Cantonese or Mandarin there, and I received exceptional service. Their largest combo ($8 plus tax) allows you to choose 9 items of dim sum (e.g., 3 types with 3 pieces each, or you can mix and match), plus fried rice, chow mein, or curry rice sticks. I ordered the steamed tofu skin rolls, but they weren't available, and the super-friendly lady immediately offered to steam them in the kitchen for me. I declined when I found out it would take 15 minutes. Not too many deep-fried items, as you can imagine, since those don't keep very long.
