I was kind of surprised, I did a search on the above restaurant and did not get many if any "hits". My friend recommended this place. He said it was near El Camino off of a street called Bruce.

I must say it's EXCELLENT dim sum for the price/quality ratio. We ordered a total of 14 plates for 4 people. We were hungry after going to the gym. It came out to about $12-$13 per person. We ordered all dim sum, basic stuff, small and medium priced dishes.

My friends did not care for the Sweet Runny/Watery Egg Yolky steamed bun. I did not care for some sort of Green Tea Tapioca pudding.
For the variety, price, and quality, it beats restaurants high and low, Koi, Gold Mountain, Yuet Wah, the various Mayflowers, etc. etc.
