P. and I went here Thurs 9/14/06 for lunch. I read the reviews and was looking forward to the lunch.

They have dim sum by filling out the form weekdays, weekends they have the carts. Dishes for dim sum are $3 each. Expensive in my book.
We got from the dim sum list: black sesame soft ball-it's a mochi dessert w/ black sesame goo. It was pretty good. A-
Another dish was steamed meat dumpling in supreme broth $3-it's a giant dumpling that's in a soupy broth. I didn't try it, but P. seemed to like it.
The lunch specials are $7.30 which includes soup and steamed rice. That's one of the more expensive lunch specials in the area I think.
I got # 21 lunch special-braised bean curd w/ pork. It comes with bok choy, about 6 big slabs of braised tofu and some minced pork in it. Rated a B.
P. got # 58 lunch special chicken chow mein in soya sauce. They noodles are thin, short, and crispy, with some chicken. Not much flavor, kinda boring to eat. Rated:C
About $21 before tip. Dishes just ok, but I probably won't be back. They take credit cards.
